Safe and Effective Treatment for Erectile Dysfunction


Erectile dysfunction affects mainly older males. The causes of this condition vary. Heart disease, hypertension, diabetes and obesity can all be attributed as underlying causes of the condition. But there are also many effective treatments for erectile dysfunction currently available.

If you feel like there is some underlying cause for your ongoing erectile dysfunction, consult a doctor at Vejthani Hospital before trying any of the known treatments. Some of the treatments on the market address the symptoms but do nothing for the cause. And treating the cause of the problem may be a much simpler course of action.

Generally, the exact reason for erectile dysfunction is reduced blood circulation in the body. The causes attributed to the condition all have reduced blood circulation as a symptom.
Ignoring the fundamental causes and simply treating the symptoms will allow your health to continue to deteriorate until the treatments you choose may be no longer effective.

Large Range of Treatments

Effective treatments for Erectile Dysfunction are many and varied. From drugs like Cialis, Levitra and Viagra, to vacuum constriction devices (VCDs), testosterone replacement therapy, vascular constructive surgery, and penile implants are all effective treatments for the condition that have been available for some time.

But unless you know the specific reason for your condition and are willing to undergo diagnosis and treatment under a doctor’s care, you may only be buying yourself time until your underlying problem increases and becomes a danger to your health.

One of the newest therapies in the medical field is Shockwave therapy. This new therapy uses high-energy, pulsing shock waves as a means to increase blood circulation in targeted areas of the body.

The Benefits of Shockwave Therapy

Shockwave therapy is finding favor with urologists, physiotherapists, orthopedists and specialists in sports medicine. It’s a non-surgical procedure that can easily be performed in a doctor’s office without any anesthesia. Patients generally experience only mild discomfort and a slight residual soreness the day after receiving a Shockwave treatment.

It promotes healing of the damaged blood vessels that are targeted during the procedure by stimulating them and creating micro-traumas in the area that trigger the repair signals to the blood vessels. Damaged tissue and blood tissues gradually regenerate into healthy, viable tissue and the blood circulation is increased or restored to the areas targeted within the Shockwave therapy treatments.

Shockwave therapy may consist of six to twelve treatments over a period of several weeks. Tissue regeneration takes time. The amount of damage your tissue has sustained will determine how long it will be until blood circulation is fully restored.
