Traction Therapy for Peyronie's Disease

Your physician may recommend Penile Traction Therapy (PTT) for the treatment of Peyronie’s disease either as a solo therapy or in combination with PD medications. PTT involves wearing a traction device to stretch the penis in particular ways to increase penile length and improve curvature.

The majority of traction devices use similar mechanics to stretch the penis and require wearing the device daily over a period of 3-6 months to achieve benefits.

A prescription is not required to purchase a penile traction device. There are no known permanent side effects associated with traction therapy regardless of device type.
