Most patients are surprised to discover that erectile dysfunction affects millions of men worldwide. Erectile dysfunction is defined as the inability to achieve and maintain an erection for satisfying sexual activity. Erectile dysfunction may the result of various physical and psychological factors. For instance, erectile dysfunction may be the result of:

  • Heart disease
  • Obesity
  • High blood pressure
  • Sleep disorder
  • Tobacco use
  • Depression
  • Stress
  • External factors

Men of any age can develop erectile dysfunction; however, erectile dysfunction is more common in older men. Certain risk factors may contribute to your chance of developing erectile dysfunction, including:

  • Tobacco Use
  • Medication
  • Obesity
  • Injuries to the nerves or arteries
  • Age

Some risk factors are controllable and can be managed with lifestyle changes. Our team at Progressive Men’s Health can help you asses your risk for erectile dysfunction and help you get the treatment you need.

Effective Treatment For Erectile Dysfunction in Philadelphia

Conventional treatments for erectile dysfunction like medication and stimulants can lose their effects over time. Patients end up spending a lot of time and money for solutions that only produce mediocre, ineffective results. Finding a solution that not only encourages a healthier sex life but also treats the underlying issue of ED is ideal for most patients.

At Progressive Men’s Health, we offer a non-surgical solution for treating erectile dysfunction. We can address ED with shockwave therapy and in some cases, combining it with PRP (platelet rich plasma) for a more effective result. The treatments have shown remarkable outcomes with little or no side effects and long lasting results. Shockwaves produce microtrauma to the tissue, stimulating the body’s natural healing response. As the body repairs, blood flow is increased and growth factors create new blood vessels to the operated area.
