Sherman Oaks Erectile Dysfunction Treatments
Sherman Oaks, California is located in the heart of the San Fernando Valley in Los Angeles County. It is where the 405 and 101 freeways meet. It has been the scene for many famous movies such as “fast Times at Ridgemont High”, Terminator 2, The Lincoln Lawyer, Crash to name a few. There are approximately 60,000 people that live in Sherman Oaks, the median income is over $125,000 and the average age is close to 50 years old. The Olsen twins call Sherman Oaks home as well as Rami Malek, Jennifer Anniston, Levar Burton Demi Lovato and may others.
Because of the aging population in Sherman Oaks Erectile Dysfunction has become an issue. Erectile Dysfunction can be a devastating health issue for men and women alike. When ED (Erectile Dysfunction) strikes it can ruin relationships, increase depression, reduce sexual urges and even interest in sex. ED can also be symptomatic of more dangerous health issues and should never be ignored. There is nothing to be embarrassed about. ED affects close to 50% of men over 40 years old and modern medicine has a whole host of treatment options, many of which have been quite common for a number of years. Once the decision has been made to seek help for your ED your doctor will prescribe one of these common treatment plans for you. They most likely will be for one of the many medications that you have seen on TV. The prescription medications normally prescribed are: Viagra, Cialis, Levitra. Each one has their own attributes and side-effects. Some are fast acting; some need to be taken in advance of having sex and some last longer than others needing to be taken less often. They all have one thing in common, they may help you achieve an erection but they do not treat the root cause of your Erectile Dysfunction. Other treatment plans for more pronounced Erectile Dysfunction may include surgery or implants. These are typically very expensive and often painful with lengthy recuperation periods; success rates vary dramatically especially over time.

Treating the Root Cause of Erectile Dysfunction
Erectile Dysfunction is caused by plaque buildup in the veins in your penis. There are many different reasons for the accumulation of this plaque. Plaque is created by your body from cholesterol and is natural and varies greatly between individuals. Over time the body may not be able to adequately eliminate the excess cholesterol and it begins to stick to your veins and arteries. Other natural substances that your body needs or produces such as fat and calcium attach themselves to the cholesterol and then attach to your veins and arteries causing decreased blood flow. These deposits of plaque can cause Atherosclerosis, hardening of the arteries, clogged arteries and at the very least excess plaque buildup in your veins. This plaque buildup in your veins and arteries is the root cause of Erectile Dysfunction. Treatment for severe Atherosclerosis may require surgery and or a cocktail of drugs. Before you get to that point, it is highly likely you will begin experiencing Erectile Dysfunction. So, while the primary cause of ED is plaque buildup in the veins in and surrounding your penis, it is also important to note that key to getting and maintaining a healthy erection is nerve function due to its role in releasing nitric oxide and other chemical messengers. Lack of adequate flow of oxygen-rich blood, diabetes and natural aging can all contribute to diminished nerve function. Again, blood flow is key.

Pills, Injections and Surgery, Don’t Fix the Cause of ED
Prescriptions, injections and implants never get to the root cause of erectile dysfunction. Pills are sildenafil or other vasodilators that temporarily increase blood flow (blood pressure), and the side effects range from headaches to death. Injections are again just a temporary fix, and they are just concentrated vasodilators injected into your penis with the relief again being only temporary. In fact, there have been many incidences of self-inflicted Peyronie’s disease associated with injections when the patient consistently relies on a specific comfortable area to administer the injection and inadvertently creates scar tissue over time. Surgeries have a whole host of issues, that include lengthy recovery time to often times poor results. Once again, these treatments and procedures are not treating the cause. The cause is poor blood flow to your penis which makes getting an erection difficult, and this poor blood flow in combination with aged or weakened blood vessels and nerve endings over time leads to decreasing performance, vigor and pleasure. Our non-invasive, drug-free, pain-free advanced medical technology is Acoustic Wave Therapy.
Acoustic Wave Therapy in Sherman Oaks
Acoustic Wave Therapy is painless, accurate, with no side-effects and is highly effective. This 21st Century technology entails concentrated, low intensity, high frequency sound waves that are pinpointed to the areas where plaque has built up in the veins that restrict blood flow. The painless concentrated sound waves help break up the micro-plaque that has built up in the veins allowing for more unrestricted and increased blood flow. The waves also trigger the body to release dormant growth factors to the treated area to repair and regenerate soft tissue, specifically blood vessels and nerve endings. This contributes to greater sensation and stimulation during sex, and their key anatomical role in the release of nitric oxide. The end result overall provides for a strong, natural, and healthy erection allowing for more spontaneity, no more planning, no more waiting for the medication to take effect, and a much younger feeling you!
The Root Cause, Plaque Buildup
There are many causes of plaque buildup in your veins and arteries. Some of the more common medical conditions that increase plaque are diabetes, hypertension (high blood pressure), cardiovascular disease, Peyronie’s disease, obesity, and high cholesterol to name a few. No matter how clean a life we have led the simple act of aging also creates plaque. The more serious the plaque buildup the less blood flows to and through where the buildup is the greatest. This is where Erectile Dysfunction begins. As plaque begins its slow steady process of buildup in your penis, at first it is barely noticeable. As the buildup increases it becomes more difficult to achieve an erection; this also has the effect of decreasing your libido or sex drive. You may even think that there is something psychologically wrong versus physiologically wrong. Upon consultation with your doctor, he will undoubtedly prescribe one of the many vasodilator drugs such as Viagra, Cialis or Levitra to help you overcome your Erectile Dysfunction. These medications can help many men – if you’re able to take them and your body responds appropriately without side-effects – for a short-term fix. They do nothing to reduce plaque that is actually causing your erectile dysfunction as they simply provide a temporary “spigot handle” to increase blood flow to your penis. Once the drug has worn off your veins go back to their original plaque building ways. Plaque buildup and breaking up of the plaque buildup is treating the root cause and that is what we at Trident Health Group do with acoustic wave therapy.
Stimulating Tissue Growth Activates Dormant Growth Factors!
Acoustic Wave Therapy not only gently and efficiently breaks up plaque buildup through targeted sound waves but it also stimulates surrounding tissue in the affected area to begin to rejuvenate. Within this soft tissue are dormant growth factors that are triggered “to come alive” by the administering of the acoustic waves. Tired, aged and damaged blood vessels and nerves respond very favorably to these growth factors realizing repair and regeneration in the affected areas. The combination of improved blood flow and healthy nerve endings results in not only a very healthy erection but also heightened sensation leading to an increased libido. Additionally, a number of men have remarked that their penis has actually increased in size and ejaculations are more dynamic after having undergone acoustic wave therapy.
Heightened Sensation Leads to Increased Sexual Drive
There are over 3,000 nerve endings in your penis and each one of these require the proper blood flow so that they can do their job, that is to allow their natural function of stimulation, sensation, and satisfaction. Without these three s’s your sexual pleasure and drive will be greatly decreased, and you will have then let your erectile dysfunction take over your life. Nerves control everything we feel and it’s how our body communicates with our brain. Nerves allow us to feel what we touch, smell what we smell, taste what we taste, they control our stimulation and how we react when confronted with outside stimulation. If your nerves are not getting the proper blood flow to keep them healthy then the proper signals are not getting to your brain and your erectile dysfunction will continue to get worse. In the penis, nerves talk to each other by releasing nitric oxide and other chemical messengers. These messengers boost the production of other chemicals like cyclic guanosine, vasoactive intestinal polypeptide and others that initiate the erection by relaxing the smooth muscle cells lining the tiny arteries that lead to the corpora cavernosa, the erectile bodies. As the arteries relax, thousands of tiny caverns fill with blood and branch off into smaller arteries resulting in the initiation of the erection. The blood filling the corpora cavernosa ultimately compresses and closes off the openings to the veins that would normally drain blood away from the penis (in a normal, unstimulated flaccid state). So, you can see how critical nerve health is for not only stimulation and sensation purposes, but also for the very basic mechanics to achieving and maintaining an erection.
Patients We Effectively Treat
We treat three types of patients: those with underlying health conditions, those that are simply aging and those that may have sustained an injury. All of these patients have one thing in common and that is plaque buildup in their penises. The most common underlying conditions that create plaque buildup which is the primary root cause of Erectile Dysfunction are as follows:
- Hypertension/High Blood Pressure
- High Cholesterol
- CardioVascular Disease
- Peyronies Disease
- Injury or Surgeries
- The aging process
Unfortunately, many of life’s inevitable diseases and conditions create plaque buildup. Today’s Erectile Dysfunction medicines and medical procedures are made to help in the short term but they are not made to treat the root cause of the problem.
Diabetes and Erectile Dysfunction in Sherman Oaks
Diabetes is a disease that affects more and more people no matter your age. The causes and factors creating this epidemic are well documented. Encino has its share of Diabetics, and a good portion are also experiencing Erectile Dysfunction brought on by having diabetes. Because your body is not creating enough insulin, this can lead to severe nerve damage and decreased blood flow to your body’s extremities. The increased risk of coronary artery disease, heart attacks and strokes due to Diabetes are because of increased plaque in your veins and arteries. If you have been living with Diabetes for years, then you have increased plaque buildup and most likely are experiencing some mild to pronounced Erectile Dysfunction. Your current medication regimen may preclude you from taking the prescribed medications that most Doctors prescribe for ED, so this leaves few options. This is where Acoustic Wave Therapy can and does help diabetics overcome Erectile Dysfunction with an 85% efficacy rate. This gentle, targeted procedure will get you back on track to feeling and performing like your old self before your diabetes set in.
Hypertension, High Blood Pressure and ED in Sherman Oaks
Hypertension or high blood pressure is much more common in Men than in Women. It’s estimated more than 50% of American Men have hypertension and this percentage rises to close to 80% of men over 70 years old. Some of the symptoms of high blood pressure are as follows:
- Severe Headaches
- Fatigue, being tired all the time
- Vision problems
- Breathing issues
- Chest pain
- Blood in your urine
- Irregular Heartbeat.
If your blood pressure is in excess of 150/80 then you should see your doctor immediately.
Recent Studies in the Journal of Urology found that 66% of men with hypertension had some degree of Erectile Dysfunction and 45% of those had severe erectile dysfunction. Another study in the Journal of the American Geriatrics society found that close to 49% of men 40-79 with high blood pressure had Erectile Dysfunction. ED often times is a leading indicator or initial symptom of much broader circulatory issues. This is because high blood pressure or hypertension keeps the arteries that carry blood flow into your penis from dilating, keeping the smooth muscle from relaxing in your penis and thus resulting in the ability to achieve an erection.
Some of the most commonly prescribed drugs for combatting hypertension can also contribute to Erectile Dysfunction, these are known as diuretics and beta blockers. It is not uncommon to see these medications being a contributing cause of ED.
High Blood pressure is also often associated with lowered testosterone levels which can certainly impact sexual drive and sexual arousal.
High Cholesterol and ED in Sherman Oaks
High cholesterol is a major health issue in the U.S., 62% of men over 60 having high, unhealthy cholesterol. High cholesterol is also called hypercholesterolemia, and this condition creates a greater chance of artery disease, strokes, and heart attacks. Cholesterol is a waxy substance and is essential for building new tissue, producing bile and sex hormones. There are two main types of cholesterol that our bodies need to function, high-density lipoprotein and low-density lipoprotein. The low-density lipoprotein or LDL is what causes the problems. This type of cholesterol can stick to arteries and veins and cause blockages. Accumulation of this LDL can lead to atherosclerosis or narrowing of the blood vessels. This is in turn can directly lead to Erectile Dysfunction.
Acoustic Wave Therapy is designed to send targeted gentle sound waves to areas of your penis where these blockages are occurring and breakup the buildup of this plaque so that blood can again flow unrestricted into the necessary areas of your penis so that you can achieve a full erection and achieve sexual pleasure without medications or surgeries.
Cardiovascular Disease in Sherman Oaks and Erectile Dysfunction
Cardiovascular disease refers to a number of conditions: heart disease, heart attack, stroke, heart failure, arrhythmia and heart valve problems. In all cases it is a failure in normal blood circulation in either some particular part of the body or overall. In most instances this is a result of some blockage in your veins and arteries due to plaque or a blood clot. Heart disease is, in fact, the leading cause of death for men in America; over 350,000 men die each year from some form of it, and more than 15 million men suffer from this killer of a disease. When cardiovascular disease is a result of plaque buildup in your veins and arteries, then over time there is reduced blood flow to all areas of your body and it is this scenario that commonly leads to Erectile Dysfunction.
Cardiovascular disease is a major cause of ED in men over 60 years old according to the prestigious Cleveland Clinic. Because of the nature of the disease, Acoustic Wave Therapy is perfectly suited to help treat ED related to men who suffer from cardiovascular disease. Acoustic Wave therapy is used to specifically target plaque buildup in the veins of your penis and these gentle sound waves will break up the plaque that is restricting blood flow. Acoustic Wave Therapy is 85% efficacious and has proven to be a godsend for our patients.
Peyronie’s Disease in Sherman Oaks and Erectile Dysfunction
Peyronie’s disease affects nearly one out of every 11 men in the US. That translates into millions of sufferers of this disease. Peyronie’s is a connective tissue disorder of the penis which causes the penis to be bent or misshapen, and to collect unusually high amounts of plaque and or scar tissue. Obviously, this lends itself to restricted blood flow in the penis while often causing painful erections and, ultimately, Erectile Dysfunction. Sufferers of Peyronie’s disease may have penises that bend upwards, complex bends, indentations in the shaft of the penis or an hourglass shape of the penis when erect or when attempting to achieve an erection. These odd formations occur because of formation of scar tissue in the tunica albuginea area of the penis. This scar tissue does not perform like normal tissue would and it does not stretch when normal arousal would occur. The tunica albuginea is made up of elastin fibers and collagen. When the disease advances to the extent that the collagen in the tunica albuginea develops to the thickness of bone is when Peyronie’s disease is at its worst.
Erectile function can be adversely affected by Peyronie’s Disease simply by the inability to achieve sexual penetration due to the abnormal angles entailed. Erectile Dysfunction commonly occurs with most men suffering from Peyronie’s disease due to scar tissue and plaque accumulation. Acoustic Wave Therapy can help restore your penis’s natural shape by very effectively breaking up the scar tissue and plaque, the root cause of the Erectile Dysfunction created by Peyronie’s disease.
Obesity and Erectile Dysfunction In Sherman Oaks
According to the National Institutes of Health if you are obese, you are more likely to suffer from Erectile Dysfunction than those who are not. In fact, one study indicated nearly 80% of men suffering from Erectile Dysfunction were obese to some extent, from a mild to severe level. Obesity causes health complications such as hypertension, dyslipidemia, atherosclerosis, and abnormal carbohydrate metabolism. The fact is that obesity causes over 8 million cases of erectile dysfunction. Obesity is a greater factor in getting ED than aging. Obesity has such an adverse effect on the body and your metabolism that plaque is a natural occurrence to all of the diseases and conditions that obesity creates. Along with diet and exercise, Acoustic Wave Therapy can help reduce or eliminate your ED through its gentle focused sound waves that are targeted to where plaque is clogging blood flow to your penis. This lack of blood flow creates ED and lack of sensation because the nerves are not being nourished. Obesity can also lead to a lack of sexual drive.
Enlarged Prostate and ED in Sherman Oaks
Men suffering from an enlarged prostate may also be experiencing Erectile Dysfunction and ejaculatory issues. An enlarged prostate may in fact be caused by plaque buildup in the prostate and surrounding areas. Your doctor will be prescribing medications that may help to reduce your prostate to bring it back to a more normal size so that many of the restricted functions you were experiencing return. What the medications do not do is help to remove the plaque buildup in your penis which over time may only get worse, meaning your ED condition will continue to become more noticeable. Additionally, some of these medications may actually contribute to ED. Trident Health Group often may be able to help and will work with your urologist to assure a safe and effective treatment protocol. To find out more, call Trident, and our highly trained discreet medical professionals will be able to discuss specific solutions to your situation.
If you have had prostate cancer this is also a main contributor to Erectile Dysfunction. Depending on how skilled the surgeon was who performed your prostatectomy and if your nerves were in any way cancerous, you may be one of up to 50% of men who experience Erectile Dysfunction after this surgery. Radiation treatment can also harm erectile tissue and increase the likelihood of Erectile Dysfunction. If you have gone through surgery and had a prostatectomy there is a likelihood that we may not be able to help. However, in some cases, we can. Call us to find out if we can be an option to help you overcome your Erectile Dysfunction.
Injuries and Surgeries That Cause Erectile Dysfunction
Men that fracture their pelvises have a 30% chance of getting Erectile Dysfunction, this is because of the soft tissue and pelvic ring trauma when the fracture occurs. The soft tissue damage leads to plaque buildup in the arteries and veins in the pelvic area that contribute to ED. Nerves can also be damaged when the pelvis is fractured, and this can also contribute to Erectile Dysfunction. Spinal cord injuries can also cause Erectile Dysfunction and in many cases if the injury does not cause paralysis our method of treatment using Acoustic Wave Therapy can be a great option to restoring erectile function and thereby increasing sexual drive and pleasure.
Aging, Testosterone and Erectile Dysfunction in Encino
Major studies have shown that up to 40% of men in their 40’s will experience some type of Erectile Dysfunction and approximately 50% of men when they reach their 50’s and so on. Research also suggests that untreated this is a progressive condition that will continue to get worse over time. The underlying cause of most Erectile Dysfunction is the lack of adequate blood flow to and in the penis due to plaque buildup in the veins of the penis. This plaque buildup in many instances is a natual occurrence not due to many of the other illnesses and diseases that we have already discussed. In fact, there is much research that Erectile Dysfunction is a precursor to one’s longevity as it is considered a window into men’s cardiovascular system. There is much agreement in the medical science community that ED and essential hypertension are not only related but may be one in the same.
As men age testosterone that the body produces gradually declines. Testosterone is a sex hormone that regulates sex drive, bone mass, fat distribution, muscle mass, strength, sperm, and the creation of red blood cells. Although there is no concrete cause and effect between low testosterone and erectile dysfunction, there are many studies and tests that conclude that low testosterone is prevalent in men with Erectile Dysfunction. The likelihood is high that low testosterone is a function of other underlying conditions that contribute to ED. Low testosterone can accentuate ED since sex drive is diminished; no sex drive leads to no interest in achieving an erection which leads to even more diminished blood flow to the penis. It is understandable that science and medicine point to overcoming Erectile Dysfunction to help increase your body’s natural ability to produce testosterone. Of course, healthy lifestyle choices play into this as well. Acoustic Wave Therapy, in helping you to overcome Erectile Dysfunction, ultimately can help your body begin to produce more testosterone for your overall wellbeing and longevity.
