How does jelqing work on Peyronies disease plaque?

How does jelqing exercise work on peyronies disease plaque?  Does this exercise soften the plaque or harden it?


Jelqing can injure the penis because it is not so much an exercise, but a series of aggressive penis stretching and maneuvers that force blood under great pressure into penile tissue.  It cannot soften the Peyronies disease plaque, but can easily cause more plaque to develop because the tremendous squeezing and stretching force that are required in jelqing will literally tear the internal tissue of the penis like the delicate tunica albuginea.  This repeated and forceful stretching of tissue by jelqing goes beyond the normal tissue limit and causes the delicate tissues to become damaged far more than it causes it to actually stretch.

Overall, jelqing is a bad idea because it is dangerous.   The trauma to the delicate tunica of the penis caused by jelqing is probably enough in some men to start the injury that results in the excessive scarring that is known as Peyronie's disease.  Over the years I have spoken to many men who are convinced their Peyronie's disease started after just one session of jelqing.

One of the most common reasons that men say they do jelqing when they have Peyronies disease – besides their effort to enlarge the penis – is to increase the blood circulation.   Do you jelq your hands if they are cold, trying to make more blood to enter?  Do you jelq your arms too?  How about jelqing your feet when they do not have enough blood.  No, no one does that.   The body does not need to be jelqed to increase circulation.  Before touching your penis to jelq it, is it cold, is it blue?  No.   Then the circulation going into the penis is not the problem in Peyronies disease.   The problem is that the blood is not being trapped by the corporal veins to create the greater fluid pressure that results in an erection.  The problem of a weak erection in Peyronie's disease is caused by veins that do not trap blood and this happens because of the presence of the Peyronies plaque.   That is where you need to concentrate your effort.   You need to improve the ability of your veins to close by eliminating the PD scar or plaque.   Jelqing does not do this – and probably injures that ability since you are using such great forces that the valves can be damaged.  Proceed at your own risk.

Peyronie’s Disease Research

Peyronie’s research using Alternative Medicine

The type of Peyronie’s disease research conducted by the Peyronie’s Disease Institute (PDI) is not like the Peyronie’s research performed by the government, universities or large multibillion dollar drug companies.

To begin with, the Peyronie’s disease research of PDI is conducted exclusively in areas of therapeutic interest that do not have great profitability. The Peyronie’s Disease Institute works in the area of Alternative Medicine, meaning the use of vitamins, herbs, minerals, enzymes and non-invasive procedures that are intended increase the ability of the body to heal and repair the Peyronie’s disease plaque material. The goal of our Peyronie’s disease research is not to cure the body from the outside-in as a drug or surgery attempts –- so far unsuccessfully –- to do. Our goal and our research efforts are intended to work from the inside-out as a way to increase the body’s ability to self-correct the basic injury of Peyronie’s disease.

The body heals and self-corrects itself of a wide variety of conditions. Broken bones heal.  Some cancer will heal without outside help. many kinds of infections and disease processes come and go in a natural process of self-repair if the body is given adequate time and support to allow the normal immune response to occur as it should. What is the old saying? “God heals the body, and the surgeon takes the fee.”

Peyronie’s research projects at Peyronie’s Disease Institute

Peyronie’s disease research activity at the Peyronie’s Disease Institute for the last eight years has involved a few select projects of special interest:

1. Ongoing voluntary and anonymous Peyronie's survey research using online multiple questionnaire, consists of 48 questions, with scores tabulated and recorded for individual assessment and trend development.

As a result of the trend score tabulated, work was done to develop a specialized diet to assist balance of the blood pH more toward the alkaline side of normal. This information is available in the book, “Peyronie’s Disease Handbook”

2. Private individual Peyronie’s disease research with 10 volunteers to develop a gentle manual penis stretching technique that would reduce penile distortion commonly associated with Peyronie’s disease.

As a result of this 12 month Peyronie’s research effort the PDI Manual Penis Stretching Method© was developed as a totally new and effective way to change the penile distortion associated with Peyronie’s disease.

Additional Peyronie’s research projects are being considered for investigation into self-treatment with non-invasive self-administered acupuncture point stimulation, massage, and vitamin E therapy.
