Erectile Dysfunction - ED Shock Therapy
The Physiological Erection
The penis serves as a sexual organ and is also closely related to the self esteem of an individual. An erection is based on the balance between inflow and outflow of blood into the penis. Blood that accumulates in the corpus cavernosum causes the penis to turn hard and eventually reach a erection. On the other hand, as blood leaves the corpus cavernosum from the penis, the turgidity then starts to turn into flaccidity, resulting in a loss of erection.
Any disruption to this delicate balance can result in poor erection, a term we also refer to as erectile dysfunction. There are many causes to this but they can be treated.
Erectile Hardness Score (EHS)
A normal male should be able to achieve a EHS of 4. Any level below that we should always look at evaluating the possible causes and treat it.
1 – Penis is larger, but not hard.
2 – Penis is hard, but not hard enough for penetration.
3 – Penis is hard enough for penetration, but not completely hard.
4 – Penis is completely hard and fully rigid.
