Peyronie’s disease is a disorder that can occur out of nowhere and cause significant stress and hardship to men who are affected by it.
This condition is characterized by a significantly bent penile shaft that can range in pain severity.
It is unclear exactly what causes this disorder, but there are many risk factors that appear to contribute to the incidence of Peyronie’s disease contraction.
These factors include genetics, penile injury, as well as poor diet and resulting in diabetes.
In order to form the most effective strategy for dealing with your case, it is important to understand how the disorder works and what the associated risk factors are.
The harsh bending found in this condition is caused by plaque, or layers of scar tissue, that form within the penile shaft. This specifically happens around the corpora cavernosa. The penile shaft becomes angled upwards when hard deposits of plaque formation in the area. This causes a very uncomfortable and painful experience and can result in side effects such as inability to engage in sexual intercourse and difficulty urinating.
While there is currently no cure for Peyronie’s disease, there are treatment options other than surgery that can help those with the condition reduce symptoms and help those without it reduce their risk of contracting them.
One of the easiest ways to decrease the chances of the bending to occur due to plaque build-up is to engage in a consistent exercise routine. Exercise helps keep your heart healthy and your blood vessels flexible and plaque-free, preventing any blockage and helping decrease the amount of bad cholesterol build-up that leads to plaque formation. After exercising, the increased blood flow demands help to filter out bad particles that can clog arteries. In addition, exercise also has been shown to decrease the incidence of erectile dysfunction in men for the same reasons.
An easy addition to any daily routine, stretching is one of the healthiest habits that you can do daily to improve blood flow and muscle health throughout the body. Peyronie’s disease is caused by plaque build-up and an inability of the blood vessels to efficiently clear this blockage. Stretching helps your blood vessels’ elasticity and ability to dilate and divert blood where it is needed. When blood vessels are healthier, they are able to prevent plaque build-up and perform more efficient maintenance.
- Kegel Exercises
Popularly used as an exercise for pregnant women to re-strengthen vaginal tissue, Kegel exercises are used to help strengthen the pelvic floor muscles that help the genital area maintain strong erections, as well as provide the area with sufficient blood flow and urinary control.
When these muscles are strengthened, the healthy arteries and tissues in the area are greatly improved. In addition, Kegels can help to improve stamina and sexual pleasure when done consistently.
Acoustic Wave Therapy
Peyronie’s disease treatment with pulsed acoustic wave therapy uses focused energy of sound waves that have been shown to break up plaque and clogging within arteries and improve blood flow in and around the area treated.
Initially, this type of therapy was used to treat heart disease patients in order to help improve the cardiovascular system to the heart through the main arteries and veins.
This type of therapy has been shown to be extremely effective in breaking up the plaque that causes Peyronie’s disease and reducing the overall curvature it causes.
Peyronie’s disease can be a tremendous burden to those it affects, resulting in sexual difficulties as well as causing significant stress and tension. Instead of choosing painful, expensive, and difficult surgery to the penile area, use these tips to naturally reduce the symptoms and correct the root cause of the issue. In combination with our treatment options, these simple methods can help you to rid yourself of Peyronies and ensure that the symptoms do not return.
