Erectile Dysfunction Risk Factors

Erectile dysfunction (ED) is a prevalent condition that can impact the lives of many men. While understanding the risk factors associated with ED is crucial, it’s equally important to be aware of effective treatments like Shockwave Therapy and the P-shot, available at Centrepointe Medical in Ottawa.

Unveiling Erectile Dysfunction Risk Factors


Aging is a natural risk factor for ED. As men get older, the likelihood of experiencing ED increases. However, it’s important to note that ED is not an inevitable consequence of aging. Centrepointe Medical offers solutions to address ED regardless of age.

Medical Conditions:

Certain medical conditions significantly raise the risk of ED, including diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, and obesity. These conditions can affect blood flow and nerve function, making ED more likely. Centrepointe Medical specializes in diagnosing and treating ED-related underlying medical issues.

Lifestyle Choices:

Unhealthy lifestyle choices, such as smoking, excessive alcohol consumption, and drug use, can contribute to ED. These habits can harm blood vessels and disrupt the body’s natural mechanisms for achieving and maintaining an erection. Centrepointe Medical provides guidance on adopting a healthier lifestyle.

Psychological Factors:

Stress, anxiety, and depression can have a profound impact on sexual function and are common risk factors for ED. These psychological factors can create a cycle where ED exacerbates stress and anxiety. Centrepointe Medical offers psychological support to address these concerns.


Certain medications, such as some antidepressants and antihypertensives, can have ED as a side effect. Centrepointe Medical works with patients to manage medication-related ED and explore alternative treatments.

Injury or Surgery:

Pelvic injuries or surgeries in the genital area can damage the nerves and blood vessels responsible for erections. Centrepointe Medical provides comprehensive evaluations and treatments for patients with ED caused by injury or surgery.

Centrepointe Medical’s Cutting-Edge Solutions:

Centrepointe Medical in Ottawa is dedicated to offering state-of-the-art solutions for ED, including:

Shockwave Therapy:

Shockwave Therapy is a revolutionary, non-invasive treatment that employs low-intensity shockwaves to stimulate the growth of new blood vessels and enhance blood flow to the penis. This natural approach helps patients regain their erectile function and confidence.

P-Shot (Priapus Shot):

The P-Shot is an advanced procedure utilizing platelet-rich plasma (PRP) derived from the patient’s blood to rejuvenate and regenerate penile tissue. This leads to improved erectile function and enhanced sexual performance without the need for surgery or medication.

Recognizing and addressing the risk factors associated with erectile dysfunction is pivotal in maintaining a healthy, satisfying sex life. Centrepointe Medical in Ottawa stands as a beacon of hope, offering innovative solutions like Shockwave Therapy and the P-shot to mitigate the effects of ED.
