Will Erectile Dysfunction Eventually Go Away On Its Own?

Featured Image

Men with erectile dysfunction often assume the problem is temporary, but it can last much longer than you might expect. ED often doesn’t go away on its own, as the condition could occur from the penile tissue experiencing a reduction of blood flow in the area. Dr. Thomas Burke of Burke Wellness in Newark, DE can provide a treatment plan for erectile dysfunction with the innovative technology from shockwave therapy so you can enjoy intimacy again.

Blood flow can be a problem

One of the most common reasons erectile dysfunction occurs is because the penile area isn’t receiving the blood flow necessary to trigger an erection. This is called atherosclerosis, and it happens when plaque builds up in the arteries and prevents blood from flowing normally. When the penile region experiences less blood flow than usual, it can make it difficult to get or maintain an erection.

Medications can be an issue

Many medications can also cause erectile dysfunction, with long-term use making the ED even stronger. The Cleveland Clinic reports that antihypertensives used to control high blood pressure can trigger ED. Muscle relaxants, tranquilizers, and diuretics that increase the body’s urine flow are also medicines that can increase your risk of ED. These medications can support your body and protect you from many medical concerns, so it’s important to talk to your doctor if you feel your ED is caused by your prescriptions.

Alcohol consumption makes things worse

Men who regularly consume alcohol also have a higher risk of developing erectile dysfunction. Alcohol is a depressant that weakens the body and reduces blood flow, making it harder for the penile area to receive the blood necessary to start an erection. Prolonged alcohol consumption can become a serious problem, as you will require professional help to stimulate blood flow in some areas.

Shockwave therapy can help

All of these problems can cause erectile dysfunction and make it harder for the condition to disappear on its own. Dr. Burke and the team at Burke Wellness can help you restore your ability to attain an erection through shockwave therapy.

We use the Alma Duo™ shockwave therapy system to stimulate the penile region and improve blood flow to the area. The practice uses sound waves to open blood vessels and improve functionality with a technique known as LI-ESWT (low-intensity extracorporeal shockwave therapy). The results come from a typical therapy plan that includes six treatments in a month, with the patient receiving two treatments a week for three consecutive weeks.
