Erectile Dysfunction Hawthorne NJ
Erectile dysfunction (ED) currently affects as many as 30 million men in the United States. Although most assume ED occurs as a natural process of aging, it's not just older men that experience problems with their sexual performance. According to the Journal of Sexual Medicine, one out of every four new erectile dysfunction patients is now under 40 years of age. In the past, younger men complaining of erectile dysfunction were dismissed without physical assessment due to the assumption that ED in younger men is a self-limiting condition without clinical consequence. Fortunately, researchers have started to gather evidence that ED in younger men can be similar to middle-aged and older patients with a combination of organic, psychological and relational factors to be considered. The summarized evidence suggests that metabolic and cardiovascular risk should not be under estimated in men of any age, even when they appear healthy.
Diagnosing & Treating Sexual Performance Issues
It is unfortunate that many men who suffer from sexual performance issues like erectile dysfunction never seek the professional help they need. In most cases, the specific problem or condition is easily identified. Once properly diagnosed, our doctor can recommend your best treatment options, such as:
- Acoustic Pulsed Wave Therapy - Shockwave therapy is a minimally-invasive treatment option approved for use with men who are experiencing ED-related performance issues. Improved sensitivity and blood flow can result with an increased confidence for sexual performance.
- Medical Conditions - Certain medical conditions like diabetes, heart disease, post-prostate surgery, radiation treatment, and physical injuries can affect the nerves that control erections. Moreover, medications like high blood pressure pills can affect ED.
- Psychological Conditions - Psychological factors, such as stress, anxiety, sleep deprivation, anger or depression can cause ED. Unfortunately, without professional guidance, future episodes of erectile dysfunction often aggravate the psychological conditions.
- Lifestyle Modifications - Being overweight, especially if you are obese, as well as using tobacco, alcohol or drugs can impact your sexual performance and may lead to unwanted occurrences of ED. Lifestyle changes can play a major role in managing your performance issues.
Men are frequently reluctant to discuss sexual performance issues, particularly erectile dysfunction. Nonetheless, managing one's sexual health and well-being begins with dialogue. Our doctors and team of men's health specialist at NJ GAINSWave can determine which options can provide a high rate of satisfaction for you and your partner.
Acoustic Wave Therapy for Treating Peyronie's Disease
A common condition called penile fibrosis (Peyronie's disease) causes fibrous scarring in the outer penile sheath surrounding the spongy tissue of the penis. This can result in a curved penis and painful erections with a foreshortening of the penile shaft length. The discomfort from the penile condition can make it difficult to develop or maintain an erection during sexual activity. Acoustic shockwave therapy helps break up the plaque beneath the skin that is causing the painful erections and lack of satisfactory penetration during intercourse. Multiple studies have concluded that shockwave therapy utilizes a proven method as a lasting treatment option for restoring sexual function to an affected organ.
Men's Health Specialist Serving Hawthorne NJ
When seeking diagnosis and treatment for sexual performance issues, our doctor will want to discuss your medical and sexual history in detail. Although this may include sensitive questions, do not feel embarrassed and remember it is important to answer these personal questions openly and honestly. Most cases of male sexual dysfunction improve with proactive sexual health maintenance. Although male sexual performance issues may not be 100% preventable, addressing the underlying causes allows our doctor to prescribe options that will allow you to cope with any sexual performance problem when it occurs. Moreover, due to the complexity of sexual physiology, our doctor may recommend an interdisciplinary approach, including endocrinology, precision imaging, urology, psychology or neurology. This allows NJ GAINSWave to provide the most appropriate interventions based on the specific cause of your sexual difficulties.
