What is erectile dysfunction, and what causes ED?

Erectile dysfunction (ED) is the inability to achieve or sustain an erection that's firm and long-lasting enough to allow for meaningful intercourse. ED can also be characterized by other issues, including reduced libido and sensation. The occasionally poor performance or lack of desire does not necessarily signify ED. Many people suffer an "off night" every once and again.

Yet, if these troubles persistently manifest, ED may be the culprit, as it is for millions of American men that deal with its effects daily. There are numerous causes, including the function of the nervous system, which initiates blood flow in response to arousal. Circulatory system problems are also often implicated, as they control the blood that must flow into and be trapped in the penis to allow an erection to occur and be sustained.

Therefore, it's no surprise that numerous chronic conditions are linked to ED. These conditions include high blood pressure, diabetes, heart disease, obesity, and others. Similarly, lifestyle factors can influence ED. These include alcohol consumption, smoking, certain medications you may be taking, overall activity levels, and diet. Negative mental states, such as anxiety, depression, and stress, are also implicated in the prevalence of sexual dysfunction.

How can male shockwave therapy improve sexual health?

Fortunately, Dr. Burke is here for you. We're happy to formulate tailored treatment plans for patients customized to their needs. These plans may include lifestyle modifications, stress management strategies, and in-office treatments.

And we're proud to offer you the many potential advantages of male shockwave therapy. Otherwise known as low-intensity extracorporeal shockwave therapy (LI-ESWT), its name may be the trickiest thing about it. Everything else is devised to be as easy as possible for you.

This modern technology uses soundwaves to reach deep into the penile tissues and boost circulation, resulting in improved erections that are firmer, longer-lasting, and allow more fulfilling intercourse. Enhanced sensation and desire have also helped many men regain their sexual health and enjoy newfound intimacy with their partners.

Patients won't have to endure side-effect-causing medications or painful surgeries. Male shockwave therapy only requires that you sit in our comfortable treatment area while we pass the Alma Duo handpiece over the affected region. About 15 minutes later, you'll be all done and free to go about your daily routine because no downtime is required. Many men typically receive six treatment sessions spread over three weeks, after which the results may last a year or more.
