Erectile Dysfunction Solutions In Syracuse

Unfortunately men suffering from erectile dysfunction (ED) are reluctant speak to their partner or physician about their condition due to embarrassment associated with poor bedroom performance. The inability to maintain or achieve an erection, also referred to as ED, is much more common than the general population may realize and is directly correlated with the man’s overall health.  A recent Johns Hopkins study revealed that more than 18 million men over the age of 20 in the U.S. experience difficulties getting or maintaining an erection.

Erectile dysfunction can ruin your quality of life. For many years, men have been told the only way to treat ED is by oral medications such as Viagra or Cialis. While oral medications for erectile dysfunction are used for temporary relief of the symptoms of ED, these prescriptions drugs have unwanted side effects; consequently, ED drugs are not a long-term solution because they don’t fix the underlying cause of erectile dysfunction.

As men age, the blood vessels in the penis degenerate and fill with micro-plaque causing decreased blood flow.  The root cause of most erectile dysfunction is the result of poor blood flow. This is called vasculogenic ED; unfortunately, this also causes decreased sensitivity in the penis making sexual intercourse and orgasm less pleasurable.

There are numerous studies showing how Low-Intensity Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy (also referred to as Sound Wave Therapy) is very effective for treating ED. With over an 80% success rate, it has been shown to be a viable alternative to erectile dysfunction medications and traditional medical treatments. One study published in the Scandinavian Journal of Urology demonstrated shockwave therapy as “a possible cure” for ED in many patients.

The Signs & Symptoms

Erectile Dysfunction (ED), also referred to as impotence, is a type of male sexual dysfunction where the person has the inability to maintain an erection long enough for sexual intercourse.

Even though most men may experience difficulty getting and maintaining an erection once in a while, this is not considered ED. The diagnosis of erectile dysfunction is given when these symptoms persist for an extended period of time.

What Causes Erectile Dysfunction?

There are many three main causes of erectile dysfunction in men: physical (ex. decreased blood flow, age), psychological (ex. depression) or emotional reasons (ex. job stress, relationship stress).

Age is often a predominant factor causing erectile dysfunction; however, your age is not solely responsible for the onset of ED. Once men turn 40, there is a greater chance of developing ED as the result of inadequate blood flow to the penis. This is due to the narrowing of blood vessels arising from many different factors:

Causes of Decreased Blood Flow:

Poor Circulation – The lack of blood flow to erectile tissue is the most common cause of ED. Plaque build-up and damaged vessels restrict circulation enough to disrupt normal function. Typically, symptoms start with difficulty in maintaining an erection and then advance to a complete inability to obtain one.

Hormonal Imbalances – Erections can be affected by low Testosterone and the imbalance of other hormones in the body. Hormone replacement therapy can bring your hormones levels back to normal helping ED symptoms improve.

Lack of Physical Activity & ObesityHaving an active lifestyle has many benefits including weight management, stress reduction, anxiety relief and an improved sense of well being, all of which help decrease the risk of developing ED. The accumulation of fat in the body can cause a drop in active testosterone levels. In addition, being overweight causes cardiovascular problems which are known to contribute to ED.

Alcohol Consumption – If you consume more than two drinks a day you are at risk for ED. Alcohol has a negative effect on the body by lowering testosterone levels, decreasing blood flow to the penis, and causing nerve damage and hormone imbalances. The reduction in testosterone from alcohol can also impact your libido and sexual performance, potentially leading to further ED complications.

Smoking – Smoking tobacco causes the arteries to harden which reduces blood flow to the penis. Fortunately, quitting smoking has been shown to relieve many of the risk factors associated with ED.

Sleep Apnea – A German study found 69% of men with sleep apnea suffered from Erectile Dysfunction.

Psychological Conditions – High levels of stress, both in and out of the bedroom, can make it difficult for a man to achieve an erection. Stress also leads to depression and anxiety. The medications to treat these conditions may also contribute to impotence.

Peyronie’s Disease – This condition is where scar tissue develops in the shaft of the penis causing it to bend or curve.  This condition makes it painful to have an erection and have intercourse. ED is frequently associated with Peyronie’s Disease.

High Cholesterol – Elevated Cholesterol can cause plaques to form in the blood vessels of the penis.  This will restrict the blood flow causing Erectile Dysfunction.

Hypertension – 30-50% of men with high blood pressure suffer from ED and some prescriptions that help treat hypertension also cause erectile dysfunction.

Diabetes – Many diabetic men experience ED. Complications and changes associated with diabetes can compromise blood flow and blood vessels in the penis.

A Safer Alternative To Viagra & Other ED Medications

Oral medication is a popular way to treat erectile dysfunction. Men rely on Viagra and Cialis too often causing unwanted side effects. These medications are a temporary solution because they don’t address the underlying cause of the problem.  They only mask the symptoms. These medications are not a solution for ED and they interrupt intimacy because they need to be taken before intercourse; consequently, these drugs are prescribed so frequently for sexual performance they lead to dependency causing further sexual dysfunction.

According to The Journal of Urology, oral medications only yield about a 27% success rate for moderately/severe or severe cases of ED. This causes patients to utilize more invasive and dangerous treatment options such as Trimix penile (intracavernosal) injections just before intercourse.

All ED medications on the market have dangerous side effects. Among the most common is a condition called priapism where an erection lasts 4 or more hours after sexual stimulation. This can be so severe it forces patients to the emergency where they use a needle to drain blood from the penis.

Fortunately there are better alternatives. Studies have shown SoundWave Therapy (i.e. sound wave or shockwave therapy) and the P-Shot (Priapus Shot) to be effective therapies when patients did not respond to oral ED medication. Both SoundWave and the P-Shot offer patients effective and safe relief for erectile dysfunction symptoms, reviving spontaneity and providing a long-term solution. Additionally, SoundWave and the P-Shot can address Peyronie’s Disease and optimize sexual performance.

SoundWave Therapy

SoundWave Therapy is a natural therapy that uses pulsed acoustic waves, known in Europe as shockwave therapy, to address poor blood flow, the root cause of poor sexual performance for men.

By expanding existing blood vessels in the penis, stimulating the growth of new blood vessels for more blood to flow into the penis and triggers a healing response that “wakes up” dormant stem cells along with growth factors to rejuvenate male erectile tissue.

In the end, SoundWave Therapy produces healthier, fuller and more sustained erections for men suffering with erectile dysfunction without expensive prescriptions to take, no penile implants or surgery. Results for this type of therapy have been shown to last up to two years (NCBI), much longer lasting than the typical ED treatments in the Syracuse, NY area.

The PRP-Shot

Similar to SoundWave Therapy, the PRP-Shot is a natural solution for erectile dysfunction. It is a PRP therapy  based alternative designed to deliver lasting improvements in sexual performance for men, especially in those who have lost function due to an enlarged prostate, prostate cancer, the after-effects of surgery, drug side effects and other conditions, including diabetes.

Unlike many of the other treatments for male sexual dysfunction, the PRP-Shot is a stress-free treatment. You don’t have to fear side effects, such as stroke, headaches, heart attacks or erections that last for hours. As a bonus, many men experience added benefits from the PRP-Shot, achieving not only improved sexual function, but a boost in desire as well.

Scientifically Proven Results

The proof is in the research studies. Over 40 clinical studies have shown shockwave therapy and the P-Shot to be effective in treating ED. SoundWave Therapy and PRP-Shot patients are reporting great improvements to their sexual health, including:

  • Longer lasting erections
  • More spontaneous erections
  • Fuller erections
  • Relief from symptoms of Erectile Dysfunction and Peyronie’s Disease
  • Enhanced sensitivity
  • Improved sexual performance
  • Decreased recovery time between orgasms
