Men's Health

What is men's health?

Men's health problems are often the same ones women experience, like heart disease, diabetes, and high blood pressure. However, some conditions only affect men, like:

  • Prostate cancer
  • Testicular cancer
  • Benign prostate hyperplasia (BPH)
  • Peyronie's disease
  • Erectile dysfunction

Of those listed, erectile dysfunction is one of the most common men's health issues.

What is erectile dysfunction?

Erectile dysfunction is an inability to develop and sustain an erection hard enough for sexual satisfaction. For some men, that means not having an erection at all; for others, it may be a struggle to get an erection, their penis may not harden enough, or the erection doesn't last.

Most men occasionally have an experience where one of these issues arises. It's only a problem when erectile dysfunction happens regularly and interferes with your sex life.

Why would I have a men's health problem like erectile dysfunction?

There are many reasons you might have erectile dysfunction, from psychological issues to low testosterone. However, one of the most common is poor circulation in the penis.

Your penis must fill with blood to achieve an adequate erection. If the vessels that carry blood into your penis are narrowed or partially blocked, you won't be able to get enough blood into the organ to obtain a satisfactory erection.

The most likely reason for poor blood flow is plaque. This substance builds up when cholesterol, calcium, and other waste products in your blood come together and clog up the inside of your arteries, reducing the room available for blood to flow.

Neuropathy and Pain Centers of Texas offer an effective treatment for this problem – sound wave therapy.

How does sound wave therapy help with men's health problems?

Sound wave therapy (also known as extracorporeal shockwave therapy or ESWT) uses acoustic sound waves to treat the plaque making the blood vessels in your penis too narrow. 

Sound wave therapy uses a handheld device that transmits low-intensity pulsed ultrasound waves to break up the plaque and open up the blood vessels.

After your sound wave therapy, you should experience stiffer, longer-lasting erections. In addition, many men also find they have heightened sensitivity and improved sexual performance. 

Sound wave therapy can also help with Peyronie's disease, where scar tissue builds up inside your penis, causing it to curve and making erections painful.

At Neuropathy and Pain Centers of Texas, their specialists have extensive experience treating patients affected by problems like erectile dysfunction with respect and empathy.
