We are looking for individuals between the ages of 18-80 suffering from erectile dysfunction to participate in a clinical study. Our study involves the assessment and treatment of erectile dysfunction. ED can be thought of as a disorder arising from the lack of libido in men across the United States. Erectile dysfunction (impotence) is the inability to get and keep an erection firm enough for sex. Erectile dysfunction symptoms might include persistent trouble getting or keeping an erection, and reduced sexual desire.
Male sexual arousal is a complex process that involves the brain, hormones, emotions, nerves, muscles and blood vessels. Erectile dysfunction can result from a problem with any of these. Likewise, stress and mental health concerns can cause or worsen erectile dysfunction.
Sometimes a combination of physical and psychological issues causes erectile dysfunction. For instance, a minor physical condition that slows your sexual response might cause anxiety about maintaining an erection. The resulting anxiety can lead to or worsen erectile dysfunction.
Common causes include:
• Heart disease
• Clogged blood vessels (atherosclerosis)
• High cholesterol
• High blood pressure
• Parkinson’s disease
• Multiple sclerosis
• Certain prescription medications
• Tobacco use
• Peyronie’s disease — development of scar tissue inside the penis
• Alcoholism and other forms of substance abuse
• Sleep disorders
• Treatments for prostate cancer or enlarged prostate
• Surgeries or injuries that affect the pelvic area or spinal cord
• Metabolic syndrome — a condition involving increased blood pressure, high insulin levels, body fat around the waist and high cholesterol
This study is being performed so that we may establish the efficacy of our Shock-Wave Therapy (ESWT) Treatment. The safe, non-surgical approach is an alternative to surgery. ESWT is a safe alternative compared to the little blue pills and complex surgery options. These long-lasting treatments allow the patient to recover much more quickly and reduce the downtime that is usually associated with surgery. We encourage our participants to enroll in this exciting and beneficial study and return to enjoying a more active lifestyle and regain control of their lives again.
