Erectile Dysfunction Treatment
Erectile dysfunction (ED) treatment is the core component of the services of Precision Sexual Health Clinic for Men. We offer multiple treatments for ED and provide solutions including shockwave therapy and Trimix injection, as well as other treatments based on the regeneration of erectile tissue.
Erectile dysfunction is very common, and a recent study shows that nearly 50% of men over 40 years of age experience some symptoms of this condition.
Precision Sexual Health Clinic for Men offers rapid access to the latest ED treatments, and this is a growing segment of our business.
We are not tied to a single treatment technology and continue to add new treatment methods as they become available and proven.
Our constant innovation supports continued leadership. We have developed effective protocols to support our physicians in treating ED, as well as marketing tools like our online ED Quiz to generate new client inquiries.
What is Erectile Dysfunction?
Erectile Dysfunction is a medical condition where a man is consistently unable to achieve and maintain an erection that allows for satisfactory sexual function.
When a man becomes aroused, the brain releases a neurochemical to increase the size of blood vessels carrying blood to the penis and reduce the size of the vessels that carry it out.
Twin compartments that run the length of the penis, called corpora cavernosa, become flush with blood that is trapped in the shaft. This causes the penis to stiffen and become erect. If blood flow to the penis is inhibited or the blood vessels are clogged or constricted, erection cannot be achieved or maintained.
Men are starting to understand that ED is a potentially treatable medical condition and is not related to masculinity or sexual prowess.
Key Considerations in ED Treatment
- Vascular causes account for up to 70% of cases of erectile dysfunction.
- High cholesterol and the buildup of arterial plaque over time cause blood vessels to narrow, lessening the capability of your circulatory system.
- Risk of heart disease and diabetes also increase with age which can cause or worsen erectile dysfunction.
- Men’s testosterone levels naturally decline at a rate of 1% a year, starting in a man’s thirties.
Lifestyle choices and health conditions which can also contribute include:
- Sedentary lifestyle.
- Poor diet and blood sugar control.
- Chronic alcohol/substance abuse.
Men with healthier lifestyles – no tobacco, less sitting, more exercise, and who maintain a healthy weight – typically have a lower risk of erectile dysfunction than other men in the same age group.
- Erections are hard to get.
- Erections are less rigid.
- Erections are not satisfactory for penetration.
- Erections cannot be maintained during sexual activity or until the man’s orgasm is reached.
- Erections cannot be achieved at all.
In the majority of cases, erectile dysfunction occurs when blood flow to the penis is inhibited either by cardiovascular problems or poor nerve signalling. Healthy arousal engorges the penile tubes (corpora cavernosa) with arterial blood causing it to stiffen and become erect.
The engorged corpora occlude the venous outflow of blood, creating a rigid or full erection. Erection dysfunction occurs when there is either poor influx of arterial blood or efflux of venous blood (venous leak).
While both psychological and biological factors can cause erectile dysfunction, in reality the mind and body work together in sexual arousal, so most men have both factors in varying proportions.
Psychological Causes of ED
Men who suffer from clinical depression, anxiety, chronic stress, or who are experiencing challenges in their relationship with their partner, may have erectile difficulties. Some of the medications that treat depression can also contribute to the problem. The inability to perform sexually can cause further anxiety and depression, creating a downward spiral.
Biological Causes of ED
Health conditions or lifestyle choices that affect blood circulation, structural anomalies in the penis, certain neurological conditions, hormonal deficiencies, and medication side effects, can all contribute to erectile dysfunction. There are many potential biological reasons for a man’s erectile dysfunction that must be assessed.
