COMMON CAUSES OF ERECTILE DYSFUNCTION

Various risk factors can contribute to erectile dysfunction, including:
  • Medical condition

  • Injuries

  • Smoking

  • Medications

  • Obesity

  • Psychological conditions

  • Certain medical treatments

  • Drug and alcohol use

...Current treatment of ED focuses on temporary symptomatic relief rather than on addressing the cause. Shockwave therapy could play an important role as the only currently available option that focuses on disease modification and restoration of erectile function
