Erectile Dysfunction Treatment Bergen County NJ
If a man suffers from a consistent inability to get or maintain a suitable erection for a satisfying sexual experience, it is medically categorized as erectile dysfunction (ED). Although impotence may only be temporary or situational, ED occurs when a man loses his erection before intercourse, only gets a partial erection, or gets no erection at all. Since the penis is an end artery, blood circulation is intrinsically precarious and most men suffer from impotence due to ED at one time or another. Unfortunately, most men don't like to talk about it.
According to a recent article published by the National Institute of Health, erectile dysfunction is very common and affects 30 million men annually. In fact, there are no established criteria for how often an erection problem has to occur or for how long the condition has to continue to qualify for diagnosis as erectile dysfunction. Although ED is not considered a natural part of the aging process, it does affect about 100 million men worldwide. Due to the fact that ED is a sensitive subject, the earlier the diagnosis and erectile dysfunction treatment, the better the outcome.
How GAINSWave Works
The medical diagnosis of erectile dysfunction is easy but determining the exact cause can be more difficult. Physical, mental and chemical attributes play a role in maintaining a healthy erection while poor blood flow and damaged penile tissue are common culprits of a failed erection. Thanks to NJ GAINSWave erectile dysfunction treatment in Bergen County, using extracorporeal shock wave therapy is now available and performed as an in-office medical procedure with benefits* including:
- Drug free option for treating ED
- Surgery free in-office procedure
- Takes less than 30 minutes
- Eliminates dangerous side effects
- More spontaneous sexual activities
- Enhanced male sexual performance
- Less recovery time between orgasms
Low-intensity shockwave therapy is a non-invasive treatment regimen that results in new blood vessel growth for improved blood flow to the penis. The extracorporeal treatments help rejuvenate the erectile mechanism to enable faster, firmer erections for more spontaneous sexual activity. Best of all, many patients who fail to respond to ED medications are good candidates for shockwave therapy.
*NOTE: Every man's body is different, so results may vary from one case to the next. Our erectile dysfunction treatment specialists can also address other male sexual health issues to optimize your performance for your most intimate moments.
Safe Alternative to the "Little Blue Pill"
Erectile dysfunction is more likely to occur as a man gets older, however, age itself does not cause ED. In fact, ED can happen to men at any age. As you grow older, you may need more time or additional stimulation for satisfactory sexual performance, but ED is not inevitable. That's why we are proud to offer GAINSWave shockwave erectile dysfunction treatment to enable men to regain spontaneous activity with normal intimacy but without the adverse effects of ED medications that often cause unwanted symptoms, such as vision changes, facial flushing, dizziness, upset stomach and headaches.
The onset of metabolic diseases, like high blood pressure or diabetes, can cause problems with erections due to a narrowing of the penile arteries as well as from lower levels of nitric oxide production from the arteries. In patients with medically low testosterone, treatments may be prescribed to improve libido and rejuvenate the male sex organ without the use of ED medications. In addition, erectile dysfunction treatment can include a mechanical vacuum device that engorges blood into the penis. Since there is currently no cure for ED, timely interventions to restore normal sexual functions can be crucial to preventing progression of the condition.
Frequently Asked Questions
What Is the Best Cure for Erectile Dysfunction?
At this time, there are no specific therapies (or ED medications) that cure erectile dysfunction. However, prevention of some of the causes that contribute to ED can reduce the chances of having problems in the bedroom. Moreover, pulsed shockwave therapy can effectively treat most physical conditions to allow an individual to have an erection when desired.
Why Do Some Experts Say ED Is a Lifestyle Issue?
Although there are numerous causes of erection dissatisfaction, a healthy lifestyle can minimize the risk of developing ED. Certainly poor physical and emotional health can lead to an unfulfilling sex life and loss of self-confidence. For practical purposes, alcohol and drug abuse as well as sleep disturbances and fatigue lead the way as lifestyle issues that can contribute to poor sexual performance.
Which Male Health Conditions Affect Erectile Dysfunction?
Erectile dysfunction can be more elusive than other men's health conditions like decreased libido, problems with the release of sperm from the penis, orgasmic dysfunction, or Peyronie's (curvature of the penis) disease. Nonetheless, any (or none) of these problems may be present. That's why an ED specialist is needed to diagnose, treat and monitor any erectile dysfunction treatment regimen.
Can Erectile Dysfunction Cause Other Complications?
Changes in erections can mark the end of sex or a new erotic beginning based on the decisions a man makes when faced with erection dissatisfaction. Disuse of an organ can cause progressive loss of function or disuse atrophy in the case of penile health. Complications of erectile dysfunction can lead to an unfulfilled sex life, a loss of intimacy that results in a strained relationship, low self-esteem, depression and anxiety.
What Is the Role of Testosterone Therapy in Treating ED?
In men who test with low levels of testosterone hormone (Low-T), bioidentical testosterone replacement therapy can improve libido and increase a man's energy level to manage erectile dysfunction. However, men with ED who do not have hypogonadism should not use testosterone treatments. Testosterone therapy must be monitored by a healthcare professional to minimize health risks such as sleep disturbances or cardiovascular conditions.
How long do the effects last?
GAINSWave effects have been medically proven to last 2-3 years.
Last year I had a bit of a down period, I was not having any fun anymore, and I noticed I was losing it. [Then I had the GAINSWave] and the results were staggering.
