Erectile dysfunction, or ED, is a common issue in many men in the US, accounting for 20 million. There are many treatments available for ED, but some require medication, which can be habit-forming and cause adverse side effects. Other treatments, like surgery, can be invasive, painful, and take a prolonged time to recover from. Fortunately, there are other treatments, and by talking to an ED specialist you can find out which treatment is best for your case.
Let’s talk about what ED is, how an ED specialist can treat your erectile dysfunction without using medication or surgery, and where you can go for excellent sexual-health-related treatments.
What Is ED?
ED is a condition in which a man cannot get an erection that lasts long enough to have sexual intercourse. Having difficulty achieving an erection from time to time is normal as many things can affect the ability to achieve erection, such as if you are very tired, if you’ve had too much to drink, you have performance anxiety, or you are not sufficiently aroused. However, if you are having difficulty getting and sustaining an erection more than 50% of the time, then you have erectile dysfunction. ED tends to be more common in older men, but it does not mean you have to sacrifice a healthy sex life as you age.
Natural Treatments for ED
There are two main natural treatments for ED – a penis pump, and GAINSWave sound wave therapy.
A penis pump is a device that encourages blood flow to the penis to help you achieve erection. In this case, a tube is inserted into the penis using a hand pump or a battery-powered pump. This vacuum encourages blood to flow into the penis, which helps you achieve erection..
Penis pumps are an excellent option because they are completely natural and drug-free. However, they must be used every time you want to achieve an erection before intercourse, so it is only a temporary solution to ED.
GAINSWave Sound Wave Therapy
GAINSWave sound wave therapy is a noninvasive, drug-free therapy that is performed in the doctor’s office and can reverse the effects of ED. Also known as low-intensity extracorporeal shockwave therapy (LI-ESWT), GAINSWave sends soundwaves into the blood vessels of the penis to break up any blockages that may be present and limiting blood flow when you try to get an erection. At NIVA Men’s Health, we have found that 80% of men who were treated with GAINSWave no longer experienced ED after treatment.
