HOW DO WE COMMONLY TREAT ERECTILE DYSFUNCTION?
How Do we Commonly Treat Erectile Dysfunction?
Erectile dysfunction treatment in Edmonton is located in our Men’s Health Clinic. Shockwave Therapy is a effective treatment for men suffering with erectile dysfunction (ED).
This treatment uses a sound probe that allows the sound wave to penetrate into the tissue of the penis.
These sound waves are unique because they are able to work on a cellular level. This means that as the sound wave passes through the cells it can do the following to the tissue:
Remove scar tissue or plaque Grow new blood vessels Strengthen existing blood vessels Improve blood flow markers Improve nerve function
HOW DO SHOCKWAVES WORK?
Shockwaves can break down scar tissue and remove plaque in the blood vessel. Once these restrictions release the blood flow will improve. This increase in blood will can improve sexual performance and satisfaction. Nerve function can also increase as the shockwave will work on increasing sensitivity. This increase in sensation can increase hardness and endurance.
WHAT DOES THE TREATMENT LOOK LIKE?
Shockwaves are applied to the pelvic floor which is beneath the testicles as above. This area is important because of the number of blood vessels located here. Like a root to a tree, this area is very important for erectile function. It holds a lot of blood flow and also these muscles are essential for maintaing erections. This is why our physio will help determine if your pelvic floor muscles are firing. If required you will taught easy exercises to help train these muscles. This allows for the muscles to increase strength and endurance and improve function.
