How stress can be managed to help reduce erectile dysfunction

Many factors can influence erectile dysfunction. These factors include overall health, medications, various predispositions, and stress. This can consist of physical stress, caused by numerous chronic conditions like high blood pressure, heart disease, diabetes, obesity, and others.

Achieving an erection requires a concerted effort by multiple body systems, including the nervous and circulatory systems. And any inadequacies in nerve action or blood flow can make it challenging or impossible for the penis to be appropriately stimulated in response to arousal.

Alternatively, circulatory issues may limit the amount of blood reaching the penile tissues or their ability to trap blood long enough for a firm erection that allows meaningful intercourse. Fortunately, Dr. Burke can customize a treatment plan that takes all your considerations into account.

One way to relieve some of the stress of unfavorable conditions is through lifestyle modifications, including dietary. Those adopting a healthier diet full of nutrients, good fats, and lean protein sources may enjoy better sexual performance. Additionally, exercise brings additional benefits to the table and can help improve nervous and circulatory functions.

Stress management and male shockwave therapy provide a potent one-two punch

Negative mental states are also linked to an increased prevalence and severity of ED. Along with stress, depression and anxiety can decrease your function and desire and potentially lead to a cycle of dread and loss of confidence that only increases one's mental pressure. As such, relaxation techniques and mindfulness can improve your quality of life, and we're thrilled to help craft a comprehensive approach that covers all angles.

Male shockwave therapy offers another potentially game-changing addition to your wellness routine. Low-intensity extracorporeal shockwave therapy (LI-ESWT) is a safe, noninvasive procedure that only requires about 15 – 20 minutes of your day. There is no surgery, or pills, involved, and it's virtually pain-free. We pass the Alma Duo handpiece over the targeted areas while you relax in our treatment rooms. As the gentle, low-intensity sound waves reach deep into the penile tissues, they attack the root cause of ED by kickstarting and increasing blood flow to the penis. This virtually stress-free procedure necessitates no downtime, so you're free to go about your day as normal afterward.
