What is Vacuum Therapy?
Vacuum therapy uses an external vacuum device, more commonly known as a “penis pump,” to help a person suffering from erectile dysfunction (ED) achieve and maintain an erection. This ED treatment helps to increase the flow of blood to the penis, resulting in the user achieving a rigid erection. Regular use of the vacuum device may help to open and clear penile arteries and may even possibly help return their natural elasticity.
How vacuum therapy works
Vacuum therapy utilizes negative pressure to increase blood flow from penile arteries, bringing in more blood from the body to the rest of the penis in a healthy manner, helping the user achieve an erection. Depending on its purpose, vacuum therapy could be used with an external constricting ring to help the user maintain their erection for sexual gratification.
Popularity of ED vacuum therapy
This type of erectile dysfunction treatment was the method of choice for those suffering from impotence before the advent of pill technology. Vacuum therapy suffered a decline in popularity and usage following the introduction of Viagra, and later Cialis into the market. However, vacuum therapy and vacuum erection devices have seen a recent surge in popularity due to increasing interest in penile rehabilitation methods for those recovering from radical prostatectomy and other purposes. The reasoning behind this was that use of vacuum therapy after surgery helps increase tissue oxygenation, replacing the role of night time erections and reducing cavernosal fibrosis, or the formation of abnormal fibrous tissue in the penis. In addition, Medicare will no longer be covering Viagra for sexual use.
Erectile dysfunction is a serious condition that can be emotionally traumatic for men and cause serious relationship issues between couples.
