Any man in bed with his spouse or partner does not have the time to stress himself about whether his manhood will function. However, there are plenty of guys that have erectile dysfunction issues which impact the pleasure that they enjoy. One can reduce the occurrences of erectile dysfunction if they take great care of their manhood. However, at times, one needs more to reach the sexual level he wants. In the recent past, researchers have developed pills which have had a major impact on erectile dysfunction. Nonetheless, there is treatment called shockwaves, which is quite new is being tried out as a therapy.
Many guys that have erectile dysfunction are not vocal about it. Going by a research done in the recent past, 40% of men have this problem by the time they turn forty. And by the time they are seventy, almost 70 percent of these have this issue.
Erectile dysfunction is when a man cannot attain and maintain an erect manhood such they don’t have satisfactory intercourse. This could mean their manhood does not get hard enough to succeed in penetration or it might become very soft after penetration.
Even though there are various factors which lead to erectile dysfunction, it most often involves lack of enough blood flow to one’s manhood. Either there is an adequate quantity of blood which does not get to the spongy tissue that is responsible for erection, or the blood flow is not sufficient. In such circumstances, this means that the man might feel sexually aroused but the body parts which allow him to have an erection don’t work as they should.
So what is the reason behind scientists using shockwaves to treat erectile dysfunction?
Shockwaves, despite the name, do not have anything to do with electricity. Sound creates acoustic waves known as shockwaves and they carry energy with them. They are typically used to deal with other health ailments like cardiac problems, kidney stones or inflammation of the joints. Shockwaves which have low levels are targeted at a highly specific place just like a kidney stone. This results in the breaking of the stone so that it leaves the body via the urinary tract.
The concept of using shockwaves to treat erectile dysfunction is that the acoustic waves lead to small microscopic tears in the penile blood vessels. Through a process known as neovascularization, the body reacts to this which means that it creates new blood vessels in the affected areas. With the new penile blood vessels, the pathways which are unobstructed are opened for the blood to flow into the spongy tissue, and thus the tissue does its work effectively.
Using shockwaves to treat erectile dysfunction remains in the experimental stages, and lots of doctors and scientists believe that it still has good promise.
