Bent Penis is Best Treated with Penile Traction Therapy Devices Known as Penis Extenders

bent-penis-deviceBent penis is most often caused by Peyronie’s Disease. Men who suffer from curvature of this nature are usually desperate for a cure because it can make getting an erection painful. Studies show that the safest and most effective method available to correct bent penis is penile traction therapy. The way penile traction therapy works is by holding your penis straight with moderate tension over time using what is called a penis extender or penis stretcher.

Using traction therapy to treat Peyronie’s Disease is considered a safe and cost effective alternative to surgery and injections, which have a high chance of catastrophic side-effects. The only side-effect associated with this type of therapy is length and girth penis enlargement. Most men will agree, that is a welcomed result.

For those who don’t know, Peyronie’s Disease, also known as “penile fibrosis” is fibrous scar tissue inside the penis that causes curved, painful erections. If not treated, it can last for years, if not an entire lifetime. It mostly affects men over the age of 20. Common symptoms include penile deformity (curvature) and painful erection and/or sexual intercourse.


The Association of Peyronie’s Disease Advocates (APDA) is a group made up of patients, partners and physicians working together to find what bent penis cure provides the most effective results with the least amount of side-effects. Dr. Levine is part of this association and is a frontrunner in treatment research. He says without a doubt, in his experience, penile traction therapy can yield tremendous curvature correction results.

“There is without a doubt evidence to show that penile stretching devices may be the most important treatment option that we now have available as non-surgical treatment for Peyronie’s Disease.” – Laurence A. Levine, M.D.

Although results using a penis extender can be very gradual, they are very real and they are FAR less dangerous than surgery and injections, which should only be viewed as a lost resort in extreme cases.

Most people associate penis stretchers as devices primarily developed and used for penis enlargement. That could not be further from the truth. Penile traction therapy devices were originally conceptualized by doctors to treat bent penis. It was only after enlargement gains were noticed in studies that men looking for an enlargement solution turned to using penis extenders. The truth is penis extenders should in all honesty be referred to as penis straighteners first and foremost.

Since the invention of penile traction therapy devices, there have been many revolutionary design breakthroughs. As they have become more accepted in the mainstream by physicians looking for a safe alternative to surgery for their patients and for men looking to add some length and girth to their penis, more companies have worked to improve and make these devices more effective than any others. It is worth noting that one company at the forefront of device design is X4 Labs. They are the only manufacturer that offer 3 different options for men suffering from bent penis. They also developed an add-on for their devices that is longer, and creates more stability, thus making straightening with a penis extender more effective than every before. And many doctors have taken notice.

The only downside to treating bent penis with a penile traction therapy device is that it takes time. Depending on the severity of the penis bend, it can take up to 1 year of perpetual use to correct the penile curve. That being said, those who are committed and use their devices as directed will be rewarded with results. Real results that they achieved safely.

Our message to everyone suffering from bent penis is simple; before opting for any other alternatives, speak to your doctors about penile traction therapy or try a device yourself as they are affordable (starting under $150) and well worth the effort. If your doctor is familiar with the APDA and their joint research, they will be the first to tell you that penis extenders are a viable treatment for Peyronie’s Disease.
