Erectile Dysfunction Q & A

How common is erectile dysfunction?

Approximately 5% of men older than 40 and 15% of men older than 70 experience complete erectile dysfunction (ED). 

Milder and more moderate versions affect far more men, with about 50% of men in their 50s having trouble and 60% in their 60s unable to consistently maintain an erection stiff enough for intercourse. 

The older you are, the more likely you’ll suffer from some form of ED.

What are the symptoms of erectile dysfunction? 

Erectile dysfunction causes both physical and emotional distress due to embarrassment and low self-esteem. ED is diagnosed when you can’t obtain or sustain an erection firm enough for sexual intercourse. Symptoms include:

  • Trouble keeping an erection
  • Difficulty getting an erection
  • Reduced sexual desire

It’s normal to have occasional struggles with erectile dysfunction. These one-off episodes can be due to stress, overuse of alcohol or drugs, or short-term relationship issues. Chronic ED, however, deserves treatment from the team at Inland Wellness & Vitality.

What causes erectile dysfunction?

Becoming aroused requires a complex coordination between many parts of your body, including your brain, hormones, emotions, muscles, nerves, and blood vessels. A problem in any of these areas can cause erectile dysfunction. Stress and emotions can also play a role in ED.

In some men, an underlying condition such as hypertension or sleep apnea may be at the root of erectile dysfunction. In these cases, the team at Inland Wellness & Vitality helps you manage your chronic condition to resolve ED. 

But treating these underlying conditions isn’t always enough to resolve sexual dysfunction and treatments like GAINSWave and hormone replacement therapy may be needed.

How does GAINSWave treat ED?

GAINSWave is an innovative, all-natural therapy that uses extracorporeal shockwaves to treat erectile dysfunction. The high-frequency shockwaves increase blood flow and stimulate the release of growth factors into your penile tissue, helping you form new blood vessels. The treatment also breaks down micro-plaques in penile vessels to further encourage circulation.

GAINSWave is:

  • Drug-free
  • Nonsurgical and noninvasive
  • Free of side effects
  • Successful in 75% of cases

GAINSWave therapy is provided right in the office of Inland Wellness & Vitality and requires no downtime following treatment.

How do hormones affect erectile dysfunction?

The primary male sex hormone testosterone is a major player in your ability to perform sexually. In men with low testosterone levels, erectile dysfunction is one of several symptoms. Other symptoms include:

  • Sleep disturbances
  • Muscle loss and fat gain
  • Mood changes
  • Poor energy

At Inland Wellness & Vitality, the team offers testosterone hormone replacement therapy to boost sexual performance and address other complications from ED. With this treatment, you’ll start to feel like yourself again after 3-6 weeks.
