Erectile Dysfunction

A Common Problem

Erectile dysfunction (impotence) problems are a concern for many men. Problems getting or maintaining a firm erection can be due to a range of physical and emotional factors, such as stress, body confidence, tiredness, anxiety, age, alcohol, drugs and overall health condition.
At the Mews Practice, we provide the advice and treatment you need to help with any erectile problem. Come and see us for a consultation and discussion of your overall lifestyle, and we can provide health checks and the latest erectile dysfunction treatments.

What is Erectile Dysfunction?

Erectile dysfunction (ED) is a man’s inability to achieve or maintain an erection suitable for satisfactory sex.

To understand ED, it’s important to understand how erections occur. When a man is sexually aroused, nerves and chemicals work together to relax smooth muscle tissue and widen arteries so that the penis can fill with blood. Veins constrict to keep the blood inside the penis, forming the erection. Once the man ejaculates, the blood is released back into the body.

New Shockwave Therapy for Men of All Ages

Shockwave therapy is an innovative clinically proven treatment used for various medical conditions including ED for more than 30 years.

Contact us to discuss how our lower intensity shockwave treatment can help you.

Erectile Dysfunction can Happen for Many Reasons, Both Physical and Psychological:

  • Poor blood flow to the penis – This is one of the most common causes of ED and can be the result of diabetes, heart disease, high cholesterol, and high blood pressure.
  • Nerve damage – If there is nerve damage, messages from the brain to the penis when a man is aroused cannot be transmitted properly. Conditions that affect the nervous system such as diabetes, spinal cord injury, multiple sclerosis, and stroke – can lead to ED. Cancer treatment such as radiation therapy or removal of the prostate can also lead to nerve damage.
  • Hormonal issues – Men with low testosterone or thyroid disorders may have trouble with erections.
  • Medication side effects – ED is a side effect of some medications, such as those prescribed for high blood pressure, heart disease, peptic ulcers, insomnia, and depression, although not all medicines in these categories cause the same problem.
  • Psychological and emotional issues – Fighting with a partner, anxiety, depression, stress, past sexual abuse, and concerns about sexual performance can all affect one’s sexual well-being. In these cases, sessions with a sex therapist or counsellor may help.
  • Lifestyle – There are many lifestyle choices that can cause problems with ED including being overweight, smoking, unhealthy diet, lack of exercise, tight clothing, cycling, alcohol and high blood pressure.
