Traction and Xiaflex
« on: August 21, 2017, 05:02:12 PM »

I have a question for guys on Xiaflex: Do you use traction instead of/in addition to modeling?

I asked my doctor about modeling and he said he didn't think it was necessary as he prescribed traction for two-to-six hours a day once any swelling and pain had subsided, and this could replace the need to do any modeling. I have been doing traction more in the vicinity of two-to-three hours a day, and have had no issues. But curious if other guys are using traction devices while on Xiaflex.

My urologist at UCSF directed me to use a traction device from esl40.com rather than the "modeling" which he no longer believes is effective - at least in my case.

Great, thanks. Yeah, I've stuck with traction and managing to squeeze in 5-6 hours a day.

In my case, I was instructed to begin hand modeling right away along with traction. The plaque is more effectively broken up within 5 days of the last injection of each cycle. As time goes on between cycles, it is important to keep stretching and/or use of traction as this keeps the repairing cells stretched out and allows for optimal healing and best results. This was the information given to me(I'm not saying it applies to everyone)and I have already noticed an increase in girth as well as lower hanging testicles.

Why would plaque softening in the tunica impact the testicles?

I'm no urologist but penile shortening, loss of girth and tighter/higher hanging of the testicles are all possible with this disease. All of which I've expierenced as it took me quite some time to get into a specialist that knows this disease.
