Kind of interesting, hadn't seen this before:

Tissue Stretch Decreases Soluble TGF-β1 and Type-1 Procollagen in Mouse Subcutaneous Connective Tissue: Evidence From Ex Vivo and In Vivo Models

"[E]longating the tissues of the trunk by 20–30% for 10 min twice a day significantly reduces the amount of subcutaneous new collagen 7 days following subcutaneous tissue injury. [...]  The data presented in this paper support the long-standing, but poorly understood, physical therapy practice of using brief, judiciously applied stretching of tissues to treat excessive scarring, connective tissue adhesions, and contractures."

If we're anything like mice, then next time you injure your penis it would behoove you to stick it in a traction device for at least 10 minutes twice a day for a week.

Thanks for the link Steveo.
I wish I had done that after the accident that started my Peyronies.
I am moving your post to the library otherwise will get lost within the many topics here.
