We’ve all heard some buzz about the latest option for erectile dysfunction but don’t worry it’s not as scary as it sounds. Shockwave therapy is a drug-free, noninvasive solution for erectile dysfunction that could give you the boost that you’ve been looking for in the bedroom.
If you are frustrated by symptoms of erectile dysfunction (ED), you are not alone. About 30 million American men have ED, which means that you have problems achieving or sustaining an erection that’s strong enough for sexual intercourse thereby limiting your sexual pleasure and confidence in the bedroom. Although it may be an uncomfortable topic, we always recommend that you discuss with your doctor to see if restricted blood flow to your boner might be the culprit.
Getting aroused has its complexities and erectile dysfunction can be the result of a variety of issues like hormonal imbalance, relationship issues, or low sex drive, just to name a few. Shockwave therapy specifically targets the blood flow to your penis. The extra blood expands the corpora cavernosa, which are chambers inside your penis, making it bigger and firmer. Increased blood flow is essential for a strong erection, but many common health conditions can restrict or block blood flow completely, and ED may be the result. Health conditions that affect blood flow and contribute to ED include:
- High blood pressure
- High cholesterol
- Heart disease
Hardening or clogged arteries can be a result of these conditions which would slow the blood flow to your genitals during sex. If there is not enough blood flowing, then you simply can’t get an erection. You may be able to get it up for a short amount of time but your erection may not be hard enough or last long enough for pleasuring you and your partner.
If the conditions listed above don’t pertain to you, then you could be impacted by other factors of ED as well. Age, mental health or other lifestyle factors including smoking, drinking alcohol, or leading a sedentary life can lead to ED. Keeping yourself healthy both physically and mentally will help reduce your risk.
If you think you have ED, talk to your doctor about Shockwave Therapy. Despite the name, it actually doesn’t involve electrocuting yourself. Acoustic sound waves are sent through your skin to the arteries and blood vessels below the surface. You may feel a tingling down there, but it’s just the energy of the sound waves breaking up any blockages in your arteries while stimulating new blood vessel growth and boosting tissue regeneration. It’s like cleaning out your carburetor and revving up that engine. There is zero down-time, it only takes about 20 minutes and best of all- it’s pain-free and non-invasive. Your erections will get stronger over time as the blood flow increases. You may need a couple treatments to see big results but when it comes to ED, Shockwave Therapy might just be the solution to electrify your performance in the bedroom.
