Our Takeaways:

· Peyronie’s disease can cause the penis to curve or bend in an abnormal manner.

· Trauma is the typical cause of Peyronie’s.

· Exercises may be used with good effects to help resolve Peyronie’s without surgery.

Peyronie’s Disease is a medical condition that makes the male sexual reproductive organ curve. It loses its strength and girth due to the prevalence of scar tissue surrounding the affected area.

Peyronie’s disease is a common scar tissue disease, affecting 1 in 200 men, and can be acquired due to various reasons. It generally occurs due to:

· Physical injury
· Rough sexual intercourse
· Rough masturbation
· Accidents
· Trauma to the penis

While there are effective methods to treat Peyronie’s disease, such as with injection and surgical removal, Peyronie’s exercises can also help to reduce PD symptoms when completed in tandem with medical guidance and treatments for PD and sexual health.

The most effective time to reduce the symptoms is as early as possible to prevent it from getting into a progressively worse state. This erectile dysfunction disease can be improved effectively by using some of the best-known exercises for Peyronie’s Disease.

Are Peyronie’s Disease Exercises Safe?

Yes. Penile exercises for Peyronie’s Disease are fairly low risk and can even make you feel more comfortable in your body.

However, it’s also crucial to note that certain studies have disputed the use of manual penile exercises because of the lack of credible evidence available at this time in the research process.

It’s important to consult a medical ED professional for a specialized diagnosis and treatment that is unique to your situation, to support any PD exercises you may attempt to perform on your own.

Now let’s cover five of the most common Peyronie’s Disease Exercises to consider implementing.

1. Peyronie’s Disease Exercise: Jelqing

Also known as milking, Jelqing is a non-invasive, device-less penis stretching exercise.

First, you’ll gently massage the base of the penis and motion a circle shape around it. You’ll need to use your thumb and index finger to massage it, slowly tightening the circle and applying pressure to the penis shaft. Then, you inch closer to the penis head and repeat the cycle. Also, keep in mind to reduce any pressure if you encounter any pain.

A single cycle of this massage technique will take around 3 to 5 seconds. Do this for a total of 20 minutes daily for the best outcome.

2. Peyronie’s Disease Exercise: Penis Stretching

Does stretching really help Peyronie’s Disease?

While penis stretching is less accredited by scientific research, it may serve a benefit in combination with medical treatments. Additionally, it is a fairly simple exercise that you can do at home.

Here are the steps to perform penile stretching:

Clutch your penis and pull it vertically upwards. Keep the stance of your stretched penis still for 10 seconds.
After the 10 seconds have passed, pull it to the right and hold for 10 seconds.
After 10 seconds, pull it to the left this time.
Repeat steps 1 to 3 twice every day.

3. Peyronie’s Disease Exercise: Vacuum Erection Devices (VED)

A vacuum erection device is a tool used to help provide men with straighter erections. Men can use the VED, also known as a penis pump, by placing their erect penis inside a cylinder tube. The penis gets pulled in by a suction, and in doing so, this helps produce the effect of a normal erection.

A 2020 study showed promising results of VED. While the participant base is small at just 53 participants, those who had undergone VED traction therapy (n=20) showed significant curvature improvements in their penis compared to those who didn’t use a VED.

The search for more potent alternatives to treating Peyronie’s disease has led some men to try vacuum suspension devices in addition to massaging and stretching exercises.

4. Peyronie’s Disease Exercise: Penile Traction Therapy (PTT)

Penile Traction Therapy (PTT) is a non-surgical treatment for penile curvature that corrects deformities and restores the length of the penis. It’s a novel and seemingly safe approach to correct penis length that uses an external device. The device consists of a plastic support ring, a silicone band, and two dynamic rods, which all cradle and stretch the penis to promote its growth.

Further study and testing by medical experts are required to confirm that it may be used by anybody. However, a recent 2019 study has proven its modest effectiveness in correcting penile curvature in the earlier stage of the disease. It also improves the success rate of people who’ll undergo surgery for more severe cases of Peyronie’s disease.

5. Peyronie’s Disease Exercise: Penile Modeling

Penile modeling is frequently performed by your urologist in conjunction with collagenase injections. It entails manually bending your penis at the direction opposite of where your penis naturally curves due to Peyronie’s disease.

For more severe cases, penile modeling is used in conjunction with insertion of an inflatable prosthesis as part of a surgical procedure.

A study conducted in 2020 concluded that this procedure had a 82% effectiveness rate in reducing penile curvature after 3 months. After 6 months, this jumped to a 92% effectiveness rate.

Don’t try doing this method by yourself. You may risk injury, bruising, or permanent damage, so consult a doctor to see if you’re fit for this procedure.

Does Exercise Help Peyronie’s Disease?

Exercises can support Peyronie’s Disease symptoms; however, medical treatments are often required in addition to this when considering optimal penile health.

Exercises for Peyronie’s Disease should not make your curve worse or cause pain. Rather, it often helps to straighten the penis and bring it back to its normal shape when you have an erection.

Before initiating these PD exercises, it’s best to seek treatment with your doctor to gain access to specific and customized care that fits your needs.

Consult a Sexual Health Professional for a Medical Approach to Treating Peyronie’s Disease

While Peyronie’s Disease is often treated by surgery, there are alternatives to support in reducing the physical deformities of your penis by taking a multi-faceted approach to treatment.

Using a combination of massages, stretches, and other penile exercises, there have been many successful attempts in curing Peyronie’s disease without surgery.

Nonetheless, having a doctor supervise your Peyronie’s disease treatment is not just optimal—it’s mandatory.

Stretching, Extending and Penile Anatomy – Ask the Experts

Big Al, of MaleEnhancementCoach.com, answers questions about stretching, extending and the penile anatomy, in this Ask the Experts article.

If you have questions you’d like answered in an Ask the Experts article, please PM Kimberly at PEGymKMWylie – and she’ll have the experts here on PEGym get your questions.

Q. I’ve been doing some reading about hard gainers and a lot of them complain about a steel cord preventing them from making gains…

…I have a steel cord. Can I still make gains, and if so then how do I train to get them?

Big Al: Many complain about a “steel cord” atop the penis but this is actually known as a part of the penile anatomy known as the septum. It’s a typical part of the male anatomy and any healthy, intact human penis has one. Unless you have another penis you can compare yours to then assessing whether or not your septum is any more resistant to training is futile.

If you want to ensure you get the most out of your length training then do your best to focus on the feel of the stretches as you perform them. You should initially feel a stretch in the ligaments at the base of the penis. As the stretch progresses, the shaft itself should be felt to elongate.

Your post-session state should have your penis appearing elongated and only mildly tired- at most.

Q. I notice in a lot of your advice you don’t make mention of keeping the penis stretched out in an extended state so it can heal longer

…Why is that? Don’t you believe in doing this to make the penis longer?

Big Al: It’s been my experience that recommending additional activity like applying an extender or ADS to an already challenging routine usually causes overtraining. That being said, a properly structured routine can benefit from applying an extender or ADS after stretches- as can be seen in where the “pre-exhaust” method is recommended.

Testing this method out before prolonged application is a must!

What are Penis Stretching Exercises?

Penis stretching exercises – as the name implies – involves stretching the penis. These stretches are more than just a random tug here and there, but controlled, consistent, intense stretching that create microtears in the cellular walls of the penile tissues. These microtears then are repaired by the body and new cellular growth (and tissue growth) happens. It’s similar to the process of rebuilding muscle in other areas of the body.

What Types of Penis Stretching Exercises are There?

Penis stretching exercises come in a variety of types.  The Basic Stretch is the most common and straight forward penis stretching exercise. Other stretches include:

Devices for Penis Stretching Exercises

Although many penis stretching exercises can be done with absolutely no equipment at all (other than your hands), devices can make penis stretching exercises more effective and easier to do. Penis hanging is an advanced form of penis stretching exercises, but since this should only be done by men who have experience with penis exercises, penis extenders are a better penis stretching device for men of all experience levels.  Favorite penis extenders from our members include:
