Around 30 million American men experience the effects of erectile dysfunction (ED), though many are hesitant to seek help due to the unjust stigma surrounding sexual health issues. We’re trying to dispel that negative aura because sexual wellness is vital for overall wellness, and there’s no reason to feel embarrassed. ED can have far-ranging effects, draining one’s self-confidence and potentially sabotaging a good relationship by hindering one’s attempts to enjoy intimacy with their loved one.

Previously, methods for dealing with ED may not have consistently produced the desired result. But through modern techniques like male shockwave therapy and lifestyle modifications, including exercise and diet, we can assist you with your sexual health and confidence! So, call us today in Newark, DE to schedule an appointment with Dr. Thomas Burke at Burke Wellness.

Can exercise help with erectile dysfunction?

Many varied factors influence ED, including physiological and psychological. Yet, as with many conditions, increasing your overall health can have profound effects. Not just on your sexual performance but also on how you feel and how you perform at just about every activity. Exercise can induce numerous positive changes throughout the body and across multiple bodily systems, including the nervous and circulatory systems, two of the most implicated in terms of ED.

The resultant increase in blood flow and other physical improvements may make it easier for patients to achieve and maintain erections, allowing for more meaningful intimacy. Additionally, exercise is an excellent way to burn extra calories and lose some weight. Since obesity is linked to ED, achieving a healthier weight is something that can be beneficial in many ways. Being active and building some muscle can also go a long way toward re-energizing one and offering a boost of confidence.

Amplify your results with male shockwave therapy

For even better results, we can pair your lifestyle strategies with additional in-office treatments, including the game-changing male shockwave therapy, which offers a futuristic avenue for conquering the detrimental effects of ED.

Unlike the obsolete interventions of years ago, shockwave therapy does not cause pain or side effects, and won’t sideline you with a lengthy recovery period. Known as LI-ESWT (low-intensity extracorporeal shockwave therapy), it harnesses the natural power of sound waves to induce tissue remodeling and increase circulation within the penile tissues. As such, it attacks one of the main physiological causes of ED, potentially allowing you to benefit from increased size, firmness, and stamina. Your performance may also improve, thanks to better sensation and function. And your partner will likely be pleased as well.

And it’s not complicated: the procedure only takes about 20 minutes, during which we pass the handheld Alma Duo device over the targeted area. The soundwaves do all the work without causing damage, and you’ll be free to go about your day afterward. About six total sessions, spaced two per week for three consecutive weeks, are generally all that’s needed for results that may last more than a year.

Regain confidence and intimacy

If you’re experiencing erectile dysfunction, don’t despair. There are plenty of effective treatment strategies to explore, including lifestyle strategies and male shockwave therapy. Plus, we’re dedicated to helping you achieve your best possible outcome. The hardest part? For most, it's discussing ED, which tends to be a sensitive issue that makes many self-conscious.

But you can candidly talk about your hopes and expectations with Dr. Thomas Burke in a friendly, comforting environment in Newark, DE. So, contact us today at Burke Wellness to begin your journey toward improved sexual health.
