Can Vacuum Pumps Help With Peyronie’s Disease?

Can Vacuum Pumps Help With Peyronie’s Disease?

Peyronie’s disease is a condition in which scar tissue causes the penis to curve. For some people, the disease can be painful and make it difficult to achieve an erection.

Not everyone with Peyronie’s disease needs treatment. For those with persistent symptoms, a number of treatments are available to help. Your doctor may recommend injections of certain medications into the penis or surgery to remove some plaque in more severe cases.

Here are a few exercises that may help with Peyronie’s symptoms:

Penile exercises for Peyronie’s symptoms

Certain types of exercise can help Peyronie’s disease. Gentle stretching of the sheath may correct the curvature by breaking down some of the scar tissue.

Recent research has also shown that exercises with special devices can be effective at straightening and stretching the penis back into its normal shape and length during erection.

How vacuum pumps can help

Vacuum pumps are an effective, scientific way to improve the effects of several intimate issues, and are approved for use by medical bodies around the world. On a basic level, vacuum pumps form a vacuum around the penis, which results in an erection as blood is pulled into the penis.

In cases of Peyronie’s Disease, the pressure applied by this vacuum and the increased blood flow may work in conjunction to essentially straighten out the penis, helping to improve the symptoms of Peyronie’s.

Our Peyronie’s Pump is specially shaped for those suffering from Peyronie’s Disease, with a widened chamber accommodating for practically any level of curvature. Depending on the severity of your condition, our standard VaxAid Deluxe may be a more effective choice - our VaxAid Deluxe accommodates a penile circumference up to 6.5 inches.

Penile traction therapy

Penile traction therapy (PTT) involves wearing a device on your penis for a certain amount of time each day to help straighten it or reverse a curve.

These devices typically consist of two parallel stabilizing rods that run alongside the shaft of the penis, connected to a plastic support ring at the base of the penis and a distal ring below the head of the penis. The rods can be extended with a spring to stretch the penis.

While research on PTT for Peyronie’s disease is limited so far, a 2019 study found that it could provide modest improvements in lengthening the penis and correcting the curve during the acute phase, as well as assist in retaining penis length for people undergoing surgery for the condition.
