Looking for Proven Sexual Dysfunction Treatment in West Bloomfield? Try Shockwave Therapy!

At one point or another, millions of men and women across the United States have experienced—or will experience—some form of sexual dysfunction. Even with this knowledge, it’s not exactly an easy thing to talk about. We all want our partner and ourselves to enjoy a satisfying sexual experience, but physical issues (such as heart conditions or a hormonal imbalance) and emotional issues (such as depression and anxiety), can make it difficult to perform.

At Forum Health, we’re sensitive to these issues and provide proven sexual dysfunction treatment in West Bloomfield in a friendly, judgment-free environment. Combining advanced technology and a caring, experienced team of professionals, we help both men and women boost their performance and regain their sexual confidence.

This month on the blog, we want to discuss our most effective treatment for improving sexual dysfunction in both men and women: Shockwave Therapy. Read on to learn more!


What Causes Sexual Dysfunction?

Sexual dysfunction issues can happen for a variety of reasons, and it’s most common in men and women over the age of 40

In terms of physical reasons, several conditions can affect your sexual function such as: 

  • Diabetes
  • Heart disease
  • Hormonal imbalances
  • Side effects from prescription drugs


Additionally, emotional issues such as anxiety, depression, and stress can also play a role. 

Sexual dysfunction also isn’t just limited to one specific issue for men and women. For both, sexual dysfunction can include everything from loss of libido or sexual desire, troubles with arousal and excitement, or even painful sex. Men specifically may struggle with premature ejaculation or an inability to get or keep an erection, while women may experience problems with vaginal lubrication or trouble achieving orgasm. 

In order to properly diagnose the source of your sexual dysfunction symptoms, we recommend scheduling a one-on-one consultation with one of our experienced providers. During this time, we can review your medical history and gain a better understanding of the specific challenges you’re facing. From there, we can determine if Shockwave Therapy, or additional sexual health treatments are right for you. 

What Does Women’s Shockwave Therapy Treat?

Shockwave therapy uses a device that can help alleviate the symptoms associated with female sexual dysfunction. This can improve vaginal dryness, trouble with arousal and lubrication, trouble with orgasm, and more. 

However, Shockwave Therapy is not just effective at treating sexual dysfunction, it has also proved immensely successful at treating the symptoms of urinary incontinence. Urinary incontinence is the loss of bladder control. This issue is particularly common in women aged 30 or older. 

There are several potential causes of urinary incontinence, but what makes the issue particularly common in women has to do with reproduction. Events such as childbirth, pregnancy, and menopause can impact a woman’s bladder function. The hormonal changes that occur during menopause make older women particularly vulnerable, with about 40 percent of women over the age of 65 dealing with the issue.

For those dealing with urinary incontinence, it can greatly impact your quality of life from both a physical and emotional standpoint. Not only is it inconvenient, but urinary incontinence can be incredibly embarrassing dealing with loss of bladder control and leakage during their daily lives. 

Some of the most common signs of urinary incontinence include:

  • Leaking urine while laughing, coughing, sneezing, or exercising
  • Tampons loosening or slipping out from lack of muscular support
  • Frequent urination
  • Needing to wear protective clothing due to leakage


Fortunately, Shockwave Therapy is highly effective as both a sexual dysfunction treatment in West Bloomfield and Eastern Michigan and as a treatment for urinary incontinence.


What to Expect During Women’s Shockwave Therapy 

The treatment is designed to be a comfortable, quick solution that only requires a single 45-minute treatment. What’s more, the treatment is non-surgical and requires no anesthesia or numbing. During your treatment, we’ll place a small tip into the vaginal opening, which we’ll rotate to cool the surface of the area while heating the soft tissue underneath. 

This method helps improve vaginal tissue by restoring existing collagen and regenerating new collagen in the area. This helps strengthen the vaginal tissue and improve the symptoms of both sexual dysfunction and urinary incontinence. The best part? The results last for up to one year and there’s no downtime!

If this sounds too good to be true, think again. Shockwave therapy has been approved for use in over 50 countries and has consistently provided proven results for patients. Women can expect to feel improvement in physical sensation, lubrication, orgasm, and urinary incontinence symptoms within about 30 days. The full results should be noticeable after about 90 days

What is Men’s Shockwave Therapy and What Does it Treat?

For men dealing with sexual dysfunction issues, Shockwave Therapy is a highly effective way to improve every aspect of your sexual performance. This device uses pulsed acoustic waves to provide a comprehensive, non-surgical male sexual dysfunction treatment in West Bloomfield. 

Sexual health problems are an incredibly common, yet rarely talked about issue in men. This is particularly true when it comes to erectile dysfunction. At some point in their lives, over 50 percent of men will deal with ED. This is in addition to other common men’s sexual dysfunction symptoms like premature ejaculation, inhibited ejaculation, low sex drive, peyronie’s disease, and more. 

Like with women’s sexual health issues, men are more likely to experience sexual health issues as they age. This can come as a result of a few factors, most notably the natural decline of testosterone or years of potential smoking, alcohol use, or drug abuse. Psychological factors such as stress, anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, and relationship issues can also play a factor.

Though there are preventative measures men can take to care for their sexual health, the fact is that millions of men all over the world suffer from these issues. For those that do, Forum Health West Bloomfield can provide effective sexual dysfunction treatments in West Bloomfield to help optimize your performance.


What to Expect During Treatment

Shockwave Therapy is a simple yet highly successful method for treating numerous types of sexual dysfunction without the need for surgery. The Shockwave Therapy device is non-invasive and requires no drugs, anesthetics, or creams. The technology uses acoustic sound waves to open existing blood vessels in the penis while creating new ones. As a result, men experience firmer, stronger erections along with increased sex drive and improved performance. 

The treatment itself only takes an average of 20 minutes with no downtime or side effects after each treatment session. Within a series of 6 to 12 treatments, depending on the individual, men can experience up to 2 years of successful results. 

Though we do offer additional sexual dysfunction treatments in West Bloomfield, such as oral medications, Shockwave Therapy is particularly effective in its ability to treat the root causes of sexual dysfunction. Oral medications, on the other hand, tend to be a more temporary solution that can sometimes bring unwanted side effects. 

Before beginning treatment, patients will need an initial consultation with a Shockwave Therapy provider at Forum Health West Bloomfield. Each of our certified providers has completed the requisite training necessary to provide this treatment and is highly experienced in treating men’s sexual health issues. After a full evaluation of your symptoms and medical history, we can make an accurate determination of whether Shockwave Therapy  is right for you. 


Additional Sexual Health Treatments in West Bloomfield 

On top of Shockwave Therapy treatments, our professional staff also offers a number of other treatments to alleviate the symptoms of sexual dysfunction in both men and women. 

This can include oral medications for erectile dysfunction, injections, and more.
