What is Erectile Dysfunction and How Can I Treat It?

If you suffer from erectile dysfunction (ED), know you’re not alone; in fact, it’s estimated that about 30 million men in the United States are affected by ED. And while the causes of ED range in severity, if you’re one of these 30 million men, you’ve probably found yourself wondering:

“How do I treat erectile dysfunction?”

You’re in luck – because we have the answers you’ve been looking for. But first, let’s take a look at what erectile dysfunction is, what causes it, and what ED treatments may help you feel more confident in and out of the bedroom again.

Kansas City Erectile Dysfunction

What is Erectile Dysfunction?

Erectile dysfunction is a common sexual condition where the individual is unable to achieve or keep an erection for a significant period of time (typically for the duration of sexual intercourse). 

ED looks different to many people, so it’s important to classify what’s considered erectile dysfunction, and what might be a one-off incident. In general, you suffer from ED if:

  • You can only get an erection sometimes, but it’s not consistent
  • You can achieve an erection, but it doesn’t last for the duration of sexual intercourse
  • You can’t get an erection at all

Although many people attribute ED to aging, the truth is, it’s not a condition that comes hand-in-hand with getting older.

So what causes erectile dysfunction?

What Causes Erectile Dysfunction?

Erectile dysfunction can be caused by a number of health conditions and lifestyle issues. You’re more likely to suffer from ED if you:

  • Are older
  • Are on medications that cause ED
  • Are overweight
  • Are a smoker
  • Do not properly deal with emotional stresses
  • Have certain psychological conditions, like depression and anxiety

Treatments for Erectile Dysfunction

At Slimming Solutions Med Spa in Lee’s Summit, MO, we offer two innovative and highly effective treatments for erectile dysfunction. These ED treatments include:

  • Low-Intensity Shockwave Therapy: This treatment involves the use of a device that delivers low-intensity shock waves to the targeted area. These shock waves help create new blood vessels and nerves to form, which help trigger improved sensation.
  • Erectile Dysfunction (ED) Injections: This treatment uses once-per-week injections to help stimulate blood flow and performance at the treatment site. The injection also helps open up blood vessels for increased blood flow, which can help ease some of the most common causes of ED. 

All injections are performed by a nurse, and can be performed the same day as your consultation.
