What is ED?

Erectile dysfunction (ED) is when a man has troubles getting an erection, keeping an erection during sexual activities, or having a significantly reduced sex drive. But what exactly is an erection? An erection is when a man is sexually excited, either through touch or thoughts, and the muscles in their penis relax. When this happens, more blood flows into the arteries of the penis, causing it to become firm.

Having intermittent ED, especially when under duress or stress, is not uncommon, even though for a man, it is most certainly something that causes concern. It is, however, completely normal and the best way to deal with intermittent ED caused by stress is to get plenty of exercise, eat healthy, and make sure to take time each and every day to focus on mental health and wellbeing. Now, when a man starts to have frequent bouts of ED, then there is a chance that there could be something more serious going on such as an underlying issue that is causing it. When this is the case it is recommended that they make an appointment and consult the issue with a trained professional with experience in the field. That way their specific situation can be assessed, and they can review the different erectile dysfunction treatments available.

ED is a common and growing problem for thousands of post pubescent men, and it is estimated that approximately 30 million Americans suffer from it in one way or another. While ED can seem like a small issue that only interrupts or ruins those special romantic moments with a partner, it is not something to be taken lightly or ignored. It can be the result of complications from other serious health problems, including hypertension, heart disease, obesity and diabetes, among others. Sometimes it can even be caused by emotional or psychological issues. Other causes can include drug use, alcohol use and smoking. With so many different possibilities that could be causing ED, it is best to consult a trained professional with experience in the field. They can help narrow down what is causing it.

There are a variety of different tests that will help a medical professional determine if a patient is suffering from ED or not, and if they are, what the underlying cause is. First, they will want a complete medical history and symptom list. This will help them have a better idea where the patient comes from and what they are experiencing both with their symptoms and mentally. Then a physical exam will be done to ensure that the patient is otherwise healthy. They will listen to their heart and lungs to ensure that they sound healthy and clear, check their blood pressure to make sure that it is neither too high nor too low, and an examination of the penis and testicles will be performed to rule out any overly visible causes for the ED. Additional tests may be required, depending on the patient, which can include a prostate exam, blood or urine tests, and a Nocturnal Penile Tumescene (NPT) test. An NPT test counts the number and quality of nocturnal erections a patient has, and this test is performed while they sleep, using a small device worn on the thigh.

Treating erectile dysfunction can sometimes become as costly and tricky as other serious health problems. Like many other health conditions, erectile dysfunction treatments include prescribed medications that may interfere with other prescriptions taken for other health issues. Worrying about different drug interactions or whether health insurance will cover erectile dysfunction treatments only adds stress to the situation, which can make the problem worse over time. In an alarming number of patients (30-40%) the traditional methods of treatment for ED do not work, and all the patient is left with is feeling even more frustrated and stressed.


What Options Are There?

prescription drugs and injections, and there are some patients consider more natural treatments which range from vitamins and herbs to acupuncture. Many times, these treatments are only a way to improve the symptoms of ED, and do not actually treat the underlying cause of the ED. Another option, which is growing exponentially in popularity, is Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy (ESWT). At Innovative Wellness we specialize in ESWT treatment. This non-invasive, breakthrough treatment has been proven through both clinical studies and medical practice and is the perfect solution for a variety of different orthopedic problems including carpal tunnel, tennis elbow, and erectile dysfunction, to name just a few.


How Does ESWT Work?

Generally speaking ESWT is a shockwave therapy used to treat not only the symptoms of ED, but it also treats the underlying cause as well. Using Acoustical Wave Therapy (AWT), acoustical sound waves are pulsated on the penis, which triggers a healing response and helps to open constricted blood vessels up, promote the creation of new blood vessels, and repair tissue. The Gainswave Protocol treats ED with a few short and painless treatments. Here at Innovative Wellness Group we use a medical device developed by the Swiss that Is approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for use as a massage tool on the human body for the purpose of improving the flow of blood and repairing soft tissue. Of the men who have received the Gainswave Protocol, 80% saw a complete reversal of their condition and 90% reported seeing results and enhanced sexual performance, making it one of the most popular and successful erectile dysfunction treatments available.



In short, technological advances in the field have made it possible to not only treat the symptoms, but also the underlying issues of ED through ESWT. At Innovative Wellness Group we are at the forefront of these medical advances and our goal is to give our patients the safest and most effective therapy in order to improve their ED.
