14 Dec Sexual Health
Sexual health is an important part of your overall health. It is important for your self-esteem and confidence, it creates closeness and connection between you and your partner and deserves your attention. For men, sexual health is much more evident than in women. As men age they very commonly face the challenge of erectile dysfunction. Erectile dysfunction is defined by the inability to achieve and maintain an erection and ultimately one’s ability to have sexual intercourse. Erectile dysfunction, often referred to as ED is very common and becomes a greater challenge as we age. Statistics indicate that up to 30% of men in their 30s struggle with ED and this percentage increases to 40% of men in their 40s and 50% of men in their 50s and indeed up to 70% of men in their 70s face this issue.
Erectile dysfunction or ED can be caused by many things including your physical condition, emotional challenges with your partner and conditions such as stress and lack of sleep and rest. Physical problems such as blood flow and the elasticity of your blood vessels are often the root of the problem. For younger men in relatively good physical shape who pay attention to diet and health, PDE 5 inhibitor’s such as Cialis or Viagra have proven to be temporarily effective. However these drugs have known side effects such as severe headaches and only provide a Band-Aid for the problem.
Low intensity shockwave therapy has proven to be a major breakthrough for men suffering from erectile dysfunction. This therapy directly addresses the problem by dramatically improving blood flow and activating connective tissue in order to repair scarring and address plaque buildup that can often restrict blood flow and your ability to achieve and maintain an erection.
Low intensity shockwave, LiSW powered by Softwave technology triggers a natural response in your body to improve blood flow, stimulate angiogenesis or the development of new blood vessels, and repair the elasticity of your blood vessels.
Treatments are quick and easy with no needles or pain and no missed time at work or play. The protocol for Softwave is 6, ten minute treatments given weekly. The results have been outstanding, very often eliminating the need for drugs like Cials or Viagra and fully restoring erectile function naturally.
