Erectile Dysfunction Causes: Physical
About 90% of cases of ED are caused by physical factors, classified as vascular (related to blood flow) and non-vascular diseases. It is estimated that 70% of all ED cases may be attributable to vascular diseases alone.

The penis requires a healthy blood flow to become completely erect, and even a marginal reduction in blood flow can potentially cause problems. This condition is referred to as “vascular insufficiency” and is known to be caused by, or associated with, the following risk factors:

• Diabetes
• Hypertension
• High Blood Cholesterol
• Cardiac Diseases
• Smoking
• Poor Overall Circulation
• Previous Pelvic Surgery
• Obesity
• Hormonal Imbalances
• Alcoholism
• Medication Side Effects

Erectile Dysfunction Causes: Psychological
Psychological factors account for about 10% of erection problems and often result from nervousness, performance anxiety or fear of failure during lovemaking. These factors cause a surge of adrenaline, which reduces blood flow to the penile area, often resulting in erectile difficulty. Psychological ED may become self-perpetuating. After several episodes of repeated failure, the body becomes accustomed to releasing adrenaline at the very thought of a sexual encounter. This can become a vicious cycle difficult to break without help.

Other less common causes include stress, low sexual drive, guilt, anxiety, sexual boredom or depression. The characteristics of psychological erectile dysfunction include:

• The ability to achieve or maintain an erection with one partner but not with another.
• The ability to achieve or maintain strong and lasting erections in the mornings and during masturbation but not during lovemaking.
• The tendency to affect younger men with unstable relationships or unsettling past experiences.

Other Erectile Dysfunction Causes
Furthermore, research indicates that more than 200 prescription medications can potentially cause, contribute to, or aggravate ED. However, it is imperative that you must not discontinue your medications unless otherwise instructed by your physician. Other associated physical conditions or causes are less common. These include:

• Hormonal deficiencies caused by testicular disease, liver disease or thyroid problems.
• Neurological problems such as Multiple Sclerosis, Stroke or Parkinson’s disease.
• Trauma to the pelvic area as experienced in certain types of surgery, radiation therapy or automobile accidents resulting in damaged pelvic nerves or arteries.
• Chronic illnesses such as chronic liver disease, chronic renal disease etc.
• Peyronie’s plaque or disease, a peculiar condition of excessive fibrosis in the penile tissue.

It is however, not uncommon to see ED in an otherwise completely healthy person, both physically and psychologically. It is postulated that the penile circulation is intrinsically precarious, being an end-artery. As men age, partial obstructions to the blood flow of the penis may become more common. While this may be inconsequential under normal conditions, it may be enough to cause insufficient blood flow to the penis when sexually aroused.

What is Erectile Dysfunction?
Erectile Dysfunction (ED) is the inability to achieve or maintain an erection sufficient for satisfactory sexual intercourse. ED, or “impotence,” is a common problem for men of all ages.

52% of men ages 40-70 have some degree of ED

1 in 10 men cannot get an erection at all

Do you experience any of these symptoms?
• Difficulty achieving or maintaining an erection (occurs at least 1 in 4 times of attempting intercourse, or persists for a month)
• Achieving an erection takes longer than usual or is more difficult in certain positions.
• Sexual erection has become weaker or less rigid.
• Maintaining an erection becoming a conscious effort or becoming more and more difficult.
• Morning erections becoming less frequent or less rigid.
• Climaxing or ejaculating more rapidly or with an incomplete erection.

Erectile Dysfunction Survey
How common is Erectile Dysfunction?
Erectile Dysfunction is more common than once thought. Although most often seen in men over the age of 40, ED can affect men of all ages.

Go Beyond Medication. Experience the cure for Erectile Dysfunction.
Dr. Bligh believes in treating and curing the underlying issue with regenerative medicine. Shockwave therapy creates micro trauma to the tissue stimulating your body’s own healing response and creating new blood vessels in the area treated. In severe cases, clinicians combine Shockwave with PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) in order to add a high concentration of growth factors that work synergistically together. By treating ED patients with regenerative medicine, doctors can best restore patients to their younger healthier selves, rather than relying on oral medications or injections as a temporary fix for each sexual activity.

CuraMedix EPAT®
Dr. Bligh utilizes the CuraMedix EPAT® (Extracorporeal Pulse Activation Treatment) procedure. This non-invasive treatment is a based on a unique and proprietary set of acoustic pressure waves that stimulate the metabolism, enhance blood circulation and accelerate the healing process. Through years of research and perfecting the use of Acoustic Pressure Waves, to repair, the CuraMedix–EPAT® procedure improves the regenerative potential, by activating your body’s own healing mechanisms and eliminating the need for less effective and more costly traditional treatment methods including medication.
