What Is A Penile Traction Device?

The word traction in orthopaedic means the act of pulling on a bone or limb (in the case of fracture) to relieve pressure or align parts in a special way during healing. You’ve read it right, traction technique utilizes the pulling force and it’s been used in the medical world for a long time particularly the orthopaedics in treating people with bone injury as part of treatment and rehabilitation. You can also check out the traction handbook if you’re interested in learn more on it.

Today, the same technique is also used in penile enhancement or elongation and curvature correction. The device use in achieving or implementing the technique is known as the traction device, but it’s better known in popularity as a penis extender, which is also widely used by men who are into penile enlargement, which works well especially when used along with other techniques like penile exercises or another device called a penile pump.

However, we’re not going to talk about it, but perhaps, if you’re interested and keen to know more about it, feel free to check the link provided. In our case here, we’re going to look more closely how traction therapy for penile curvature correction works.

One of the first traction devices used in medical and clinical trials is the FastSize traction device. It is also the one being used in the video demonstration above. Unfortunately, FastSize is not in circulation anymore. On the other hand, don’t get disappointed as there are many traction devices available today with a similar design as FastSize. Traction-Device

If you take a look at the link provided above about penis extenders, there are a few choices that are proven to be effective. Most of them have a similar design to FastSize, but some are different, yet they achieve the same purpose. Additionally, if you consult with your urologist, he or she may recommend a different brand, which is fair because different urologists have their own preference, and perhaps better experience with their patients using such a traction device they recommended.

Traction Device Plus Supplementation


In addition to using the traction device, you may be prescribed by your urologist some oral medications, but mostly it’s a form of natural supplementation that helps stop the formation of plaque that is causing the curvature, and even helps dissolve the plaque which is very helpful along with the use of the traction device.

Penile Exercises

As mentioned earlier, penile exercises are used for penile size enhancement purposes. However, it turned out it has more benefits for maintaining penile health including erectile dysfunction and penile curvature corrections. For instance, a penile exercise routine using different variations of jelqing and stretching can have straightening effect. Of course, this is not something that has an immediate effect, but gradual and with consistent implementation of the exercise it can help straighten and in some cases even increase penile girth, which is a plus benefit.

One thing to consider when using penile exercises along with a traction device is to start at low intensity and short duration. It does not take a lot of time doing the exercises. In fact, with just 5 to 15 minutes a day at anytime of the day you prefer. In my case, I prefer morning prior to taking  cold showers, and once I’ve done doing it, I then put on the traction device.

Wearing The Traction Device

The great thing about wearing a traction device is it can be put on underneath clothing. Hence, even at work it can be put especially for people who work in the office. You can even wear the traction device while sleeping, but in some cases especially if for those just getting started using it, it’s not advisable.

Traction devices are pretty much comfortable and not painful to wear, and perhaps it also depends on the quality of the traction device. However, for beginners and even me when I was just beginning to do it, there was some discomfort that force me to take off the device and massage the entire penile shaft every 2 hours. Later, I found out that adjusting the traction force helped relieve the discomfort.

Hence, it’s a good idea to find the sweet spot when adjusting the traction force; not too loose or you’ll never get results, and not too tight or you’ll get discomfort. This is no magical device. Just like owning a new smart phone, the first time you have the unit, you need to read the user’s guide and do some exploration of its features. Well, it’s similar when owning other things like a traction device. With a little bit of tweaking and reading the user’s guide, you’ll be able to find the right force without discomfort, and at the same time giving you the results gradually in the long-term.

The key here is not to rush because rushing and pushing yourself will simply induce injury that can delay the results as it’s necessary to hold-off using the device when there’s pain. So, make sure there’s no pain and don’t rush. Always read the user’s guide that comes with the package.
