Physical Therapy Can Help With Erectile Dysfunction
Erectile dysfunction (ED) is the inability to hold an erection long enough to perform sexual activity. It is the most common type of sexual issue in men, with up to half of men over the age of 40 experiencing some level of ED, according to research published in the Journal of Urology.
Many men do not seek treatment for ED due to embarrassment, lack of information, or a misconception that erectile dysfunction cannot be helped. At New You Health and Wellness, we provide a holistic approach to addressing ED in conjunction with advanced effective technology called Electrohydraulic Shockwave treatment to address the variables contributing to ED and improve performance. In addition, our functional medicine approach and pelvic floor therapy add a unique element to treatment helping men regain their performance without medications or injections. ED treatment typically requires around 6-8 45-minute sessions with our physical therapist. Contact New You Health and Wellness today for more information.

Common questions and misconceptions about Erectile Dysfunction
Knowing the facts about Erectile Dysfunction and what are considered effective treatments is extremely important on your road to success.
MYTH: ERECTILE DYSFUNCTION IS A COMMON PART OF GETTING OLDER; I’LL JUST HAVE TO ACCEPT IT.
Fact: ED is not a normal part of the aging process. While some men may experience erectile problems from time to time as they get older, ongoing and frequent erectile dysfunction may be a symptom of an underlying medical condition such as cardiovascular disease, low testosterone or diabetes. You don’t have to accept ED as a normal part of growing older.
MYTH: I CAN’T TALK TO MY DOCTOR ABOUT MY ERECTILE DYSFUNCTION. THEY CAN’T DO ANYTHING ABOUT IT ANYWAY
Fact: We strongly recommend finding a physician you feel comfortable discussing the symptoms you are experiencing. Your physician should be comfortable talking about erectile dysfunction and is there to help.
Following a physician’s diagnosis our program can begin and your road to addressing the many variables that could be contributing to your issue will begin. We work to understand your symptoms and overall health and develop a personalized treatment plan that will work for you.
MYTH: MY ONLY TREATMENT OPTION IS THE LITTLE MAGIC PILL SEEN ON THE TV COMMERCIALS.
Fact: While common oral medications are assumed to be the only line of defense against ED because they are front and center on television commercials, they are not the only treatment option available for erectile dysfunction. Oral medications, while touted as the magic pill by many men with ED, can also have unpalatable side effects. Oral medications are often the first place that men begin when it comes to treating ED and increasing blood flow to the penis, but there are other non pharmaceutical approaches such as our Electrohydraulic Shockwave therapy coupled with a holistic approach to your health and wellness. Many men feel a less invasive approach is well suited to them depending on a number of physical and medical factors. We work with you to develop a plan that is personalized to your needs and overall health.
MYTH: ERECTILE DYSFUNCTION ONLY AFFECTS MEN
Fact: While erectile dysfunction physically affects a man, and no doubt has psychological effects as well, women are impacted by ED on an emotional level, too. Many women internalize their partner’s ED and live with guilt, self-doubt and may blame themselves, feeling their partner is no longer sexually attracted to them. For many women, sex is more than just the physical act, it’s intimate and emotional. Some women feel that the loss of intimacy signals trouble in their relationship. Women whose partners are experiencing ED need support, reassurance, and intimacy just as much as their partners do. Both partners can maintain a high level of intimacy even without sexual intercourse and should work
