An excellent new review of traction has been added, posted in 2016.

Penile traction therapy for Peyronie's disease—what's the evidence?

As expected, it concludes that the evidence is strong for traction and it appears to be a good treatment, even if there are not that many studies and sample sizes were small.

I highly recommend you all read the experimental data , it states that the mode of action is called "mechanotransduction." in which collagen fibers remodel themselves with traction.


Very interesting study!

Simple summary, traction great for bends, VED might actually be better for healing erectile function issues and decreasing the chance of re-injury or progression.
This is an emotionally destructive condition, we all have it, let's be nice to each other.
