What Is Erectile Dysfunction?

Erectile dysfunction (ED) is a sexual disorder that affects a man's ability to achieve or maintain an erection.

Physical or psychological problems can lead to this disorder.

Examples of physical causes include diabetes, heart disease, and nerve damage. Psychological causes include anxiety, depression, and stress. Other factors that can cause ED include medicine, injuries, or surgery.

Typical treatments for ED may include medicine, therapy, or surgery.

Conventional treatments for erectile dysfunction include oral medications, such as sildenafil (Viagra), tadalafil (Cialis), and vardenafil (Levitra).

These drugs work by inhibiting an enzyme called phosphodiesterase type 5 (PDE5 ). PDE5 is found in the smooth muscle cells lining the blood vessels supplying the penis.

Inhibition of phosphodiesterase type 5 leads to increased levels of cyclic guanosine monophosphate (cGMP)

This relaxes smooth muscle cells and increases blood flow to the corpus cavernosum.

Or there is testosterone replacement therapy.

Testosterone replacement therapy is used to help men with low testosterone levels. The testosterone production therapy involves taking testosterone supplements, which can help to increase a man's testosterone levels and improve his overall health.

Can a Chiropractor Help With Erectile Dysfunction?

Yes, a chiropractor can help with erectile dysfunction. The bottom of the spine (lumbar region) serves as the exit for nerves that control the male's reproductive system. Misalignments in your spine can press against the nerves that travel toward your genital region. The impact of this compression could lead to impotence. Adjustments to your spine can release any potential pressure that presses against your nerves. Thus, you can increase nerve activity and blood flow to your sexual organs. Without the side effects of medication. Chiropractic care comes with few (if any) side effects. Most of the time, with chiropractic care, you may, at worst, feel a bit of soreness for a couple of days. In rare scenarios, you could suffer from a stroke. However, medications like viagra can have side effects like headaches, stomach pain, dizziness, and more. Side effects that could affect your daily activities.

How Does Chiropractic Care Help With Erectile Dysfunction?

When visiting a clinic, a chiropractor will use spinal adjustments to target the root cause of impotence. This treatment will relieve pressure on the nerves that travel to your genitals. And because of this, many will see minimized symptoms.

  • Returns range of motion to your body
