What is Erectile Dysfunction (ED)?
Erectile dysfunction, commonly referred to as ED, is the inability to get and maintain an erection during sexual intercourse. It is common for men to experience some form of ED at any point in their lives.
However, if you are unable to keep your erection firm enough for sex on a regular basis, it is time to consult with a urologist or men’s health expert.
You are not alone. It is estimated that about 1 in 10 men are suffering from ED on a long-term basis, making it a very common men’s health issue.
Symptoms of Erectile Dysfunction
Symptoms of ED include:
- Inability to attain an erection
- Difficulty keeping a firm erection
- Decrease in libido
What Causes Erectile Dysfunction?
There are many things that can cause erectile dysfunction. Elite uses a comprehensive approach that utilizes blood tests to diagnose and treat the underlying causes of ED, which can be caused by a number of things, including:
Poor Blood Flow
An erection is caused by blood flow through the penis. If there are blockages in your penile arteries, it can make it difficult or impossible to achieve an erection.
Shockwave therapy, one of our noninvasive treatment options, may increase blood flow and even promote the growth of new blood vessels, resulting in stronger, longer-lasting erections.
Weak Pelvic Floor
A weak pelvic floor could be the cause of erectile dysfunction, impotence, and other types of male sexual dysfunction, as well as incontinence. Strengthening the pelvic floor muscles may help prevent embarrassing situations as well as treat erectile dysfunction.
Hormone Imbalance (Low Testosterone)
Testosterone, the male sex hormone, and other hormones play a role in sexual arousal, which can trigger blood flow to the penis, creating an erection.
Many men will experience a drop in testosterone as they age. This could be one reason why men in their late 40s and older tend to experience ED more than younger men.
A simple blood test can determine if your testosterone levels are lower than they should be.We can treat erectile dysfunction with hormone replacement therapy.
What Treatment Options are Available for Erectile Dysfunction in Columbus, Ohio?
Elite Body and Laser has many types of ED treatments available:
Shockwave Therapy (Acoustic Wave Therapy)
Shockwave therapy (or acoustic wave therapy) uses a device emitting high-frequency acoustic waves that, when applied to the male genitals, break up microplaque that prevents proper blood flow.
The resulting improved blood flow to the penis helps men, not only those with erectile dysfunction, to obtain stronger and more sustainable erections.
We use Storz Focused Shockwave devices instead of radial shockwave devices as their dense, higher energy waves can be precisely delivered to a specific area, up to 12 cm under the skin.
Unlike radial shockwaves, focused shockwaves can also promote the release of nitric oxide, a vasodilator, meaning improves circulation by dilating blood vessels. Research has shown that nitric oxide likely plays an essential role in erections, and nitric oxide deficiency can be a factor in ED.
We can assess you for risk factors, physical or psychological health, sexual history, and all other issues related to sexual dysfunction.
Erectile dysfunction can be a result of an underlying condition such as a weak pelvic floor or nerve damage. Hypertrophy of the pelvic muscles may lead to a block of the outflow of blood and is linked to erectile dysfunction.
Emsella strengthens your pelvic floor muscles. Once these muscles are strengthened using the Emsella chair, better erections may follow.
If a hormone imbalance such as low-T is causing ED, hormone replacement therapy may be an effective treatment option.
ED Prescription Medications
If all else fails, prescription medications may be a treatment for ED. Viagra and Cialis are household names for a reason, after all. However, these medications are not safe for people with certain medical conditions or other medications to use. That is why we prefer to use our drug-free alternatives before going right to prescription medications.
Nonsurgical Penile Pumps
Penis pumps may be used in conjunction with the above treatment options. These pumps are not penile implants; these pumps are more like vacuums and are used before sex. This means people who like spontaneity in their sex life will have to rely on a schedule.
How is it Possible to Have Better Sexual Gratification with a Nonsurgical ED Treatment?
Erectile dysfunction affects not only men but also their partners, because it impacts the quality of both their sex lives and their overall happiness.
Premature ejaculation or difficulty maintaining an erection can decrease satisfactory sexual performance.
Treating these issues may reverse the trajectory of the struggles you and your partner are dealing with in the bedroom (and outside of it).
