Improve erectile dysfunction with physiotherapy

Improve erectile dysfunction with physiotherapy

When most of us think about erectile dysfunction (ED), the solution that pops into our head is likely to be that “little blue pill”. However, medication may not necessarily be the only solution.

As erectile dysfunction is not actually a disease in itself, but a symptom of another problem – either physical or psychological, or a combination of the two – there are alternative options that should be considered before taking on the expense and potential side-effects of medications.

What is erectile dysfunction?

Erectile dysfunction refers to the inability to get or maintain an erection that allows for sexual penetration. It generally relates to ongoing issues, rather than an occasional occurrence.


Despite popular belief, becoming aroused is actually quite a complex process as it involves various responses in the mind and body, each of which may contribute to ED. These responses involve the brain, hormones, nerves, muscles, blood vessels, energy and emotions.

Physical causes:

* Heart disease

* High blood pressure

* High cholesterol

* Obesity

* Diabetes

* Smoking and alcohol consumption

* Certain medications

Psychological causes:

* Depression

* Anxiety

* Stress

* Relationship problems

* Other mental health issues

How can physiotherapy help?

Following a consultation and assessment of your condition, a physiotherapist can provide you with exercises that are appropriate for strengthening your pelvic floor muscles. Recent studies showed that a high percentage of men with ED experienced strong improvements, while a significant amount recovered full normal function of both urinary and sexual health after following a pelvic floor exercise program.
