Exploring Effective ED Exercises for Penile Rehabilitation

Weakening of the pelvic muscle group often contributes to the development of erectile dysfunction, or ED. The muscles in this group wrap around your bowels, bladder and prostate to help control the activity in your pelvic region. In addition, these muscles help your body maintain an erection by trapping blood in the cells of your erectile tissues. When you undergo surgery in this area, or suffer from a serious medical condition, your muscle strength may decline, causing the beginning symptoms of erectile dysfunction. Thankfully, you can utilize the four following targeted ED exercises to strengthen your muscle groups and potentially regain your ability to achieve an erection.


Kegels are a must for building strength in your pelvic muscle group. You must perform this exercise correctly to net the full benefits by activating all muscles in the group at the same time. To start, practice tightening up the target muscles by stopping your urine midstream during bathroom breaks. Once you can activate those muscles on demand, you can practice holding the contraction for several seconds in a row. You want to work your way up to holding the muscles tight for at least ten seconds while laying down, sitting, standing and walking, in that order.


Once you have your Kegels mastered, you can integrate bodyweight squats into your routine. The squats continue the same pelvic floor strengthening movements while integrating your core support mechanism. Balancing your strength gains in this manner helps prevent injury that could setback your progress in recovering from your ED symptoms. Make sure to do squats in front of the mirror to perfect your form before adding weight to your frame. You may eventually hold a 25-pound dumbbell or move onto an Olympic barbell as your pelvic floor and core muscles gain in strength.


To effectively perform Pilates movements, you must contract the muscles in your pelvis and core for extended periods of time. As you attempt to keep your balance, your muscles shift in micromovements that facilitate immense strength gains without adding heavy weights to the mix. Furthermore, the full body movements promote improved coordination between your muscle groups, which has a positive impact on blood flow and muscle contraction. Although you may be tempted to focus mainly on your pelvic floor muscles, alternate your routine on a weekly basis to balance your strength gains across your entire body. Otherwise, injuries could occur.


Yoga allows you to target specific muscle groups for improved strength while increasing your overall cardiovascular function. With hundreds of unique poses to choose from, you can customize your routine to work the muscles you feel are the weakest. As you master the poses, you can move onto the next difficulty level to continue making measured improvements to your physique. Make sure to include the boat, raised legs and plank poses into your initial routine to focus on your pelvic floor muscles from the start.

By integrating ED exercises into your daily routine, you can take back control of your body and fight against the symptoms you feel. Since gains in strength, flexibility and cardiovascular function take time to develop, you may want to utilize a SomaTherapy-ED vacuum therapy device to overcome your ED symptoms in the meantime.

Tips for Coping With ED: Erectile Dysfunction Exercises

Causes of erectile dysfunction may vary greatly.  Regardless of your particular cause of ED, one ED symptom shared by all who are effected by the condition is decreased blood flow to the penis.

If your cause of ED is a medical condition, medication, or any one of many potential causes, it is likely that decreased blood flow to penile tissues can be positively impacted by erectile dysfunction exercises.  If you have erectile dysfunction and want to learn how to fix ED, there are effective treatments that will increase blood flow to the penis.

Regular exercise is routinely recommended to counteract heart disease, increase mental clarity, and improve overall health and wellbeing. Penile health is no different, and blood flow can be increased with erectile dysfunction exercises and significantly improve the quality, frequency, and strength of your erections.

Better Erections

A very old adage applies to erectile dysfunction exercise, “if you don’t use it you lose it.” We take regular walks and make trips to the gym so we don’t lose the health of joints, muscles, and blood vessels by increasing activity and blood flow.

The more you achieve regular erections, the better your penile health.  Daily erections, even if you have erectile dysfunction, is the key to fuller, firmer, and stronger erections.

If you suffer from ED and require treatment to achieve daily erections the following methods can produce daily erections and blood flow to the penis:

  • Oral medications
  • Penile Injections
  • Erectile dysfunction pump

Erectile Dysfunction Pump and Stronger Erections

Using Soma Therapy ED for erectile dysfunction exercises is a very effective option and one of the natural ED remedies.  It is the guaranteed treatment that has the unique ability to create and release 2-3 erections in 10-15 minutes.  This ability to ensure multiple erections on a daily basis is an advantage of an erectile dysfunction pump for exercise since the average man without erectile dysfunction obtains three to six erections per night in (REM) rapid-eye-movement sleep. Soma Therapy ED can create daily blood flow to the penis like men, who do not have ED, without drugs or needles.

The fact that Soma Therapy ED devices pull blood from the body to the penis without drugs and needles is very important to men who are health conscious and want results. Pills and needles are not good choices for erectile dysfunction exercise when you consider that Soma Therapy ED is not only a non-invasive treatment, but in also has the unique ability to create and release multiple erections in a short amount of time unlike other interventions.  Soma Therapy ED can by used somewhat like interval training for better erections.

The Absence of Regular Erections

It is recognized that a prolonged erection problem can lead to shrinkage of the penile tissues and a reduction in penile circulation (non-use atrophy). Regular use of the Soma Therapy ED vacuum therapy device will create penile rigidity.  Daily penile rigidity through erectile dysfunction exercise will duplicate the benefits of nocturnal erections, reversing penile shrinkage, reconditioning penile tissues with blood circulation and promoting a return to good penile health.

This therapeutic benefit of regular device use is perhaps best understood as the Soma Therapy ED “Penis GYM” concept. In other words, we can talk in terms of regular device usage equating to penile “exercise” with a resulting improvement in penile “fitness” – hence a physiotherapeutic effect.

How to use Soma Therapy ED for Stronger Erections

Like all other forms of life style changes, the trick is to make ED exercises part of your regular routine.  In the morning or evening, dependent upon when you shower of bath, is probably the best time.

You want to train penile tissues using erectile dysfunction exercises before bathing because you are naturally undressing and the small amounts of lubricant needed to apply the device will be washed away when you bath.

Once you make the training protocol part of your schedule, it will become second nature to perform this simple 10-15 minute exercises.  Here are the steps:

  1. Apply lubricant to the body and device.  Do not use the tension system at all for this exercise.
  2. Use the system to slowly create an erection by pumping the handle 3-5 times and waiting ten seconds for blood to flow into the penis.
  3. Repeat to step two (2) until the penis has become fully erect.
  4. Hold the erection within the cylinder for 2-3 minutes
  5. Release the erection within the cylinder be pressing the release button on the back of the pump head. Note: do not remove the cylinder from around the penis at all during this process.

Repeat this 5-step process of creating and releasing erections three times, remove and clean the device and take your shower or bath.

Erectile Dysfunction Exercises

Benjamin Franklin famously coined the phrase “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.”  This expression has been applied by physicians and members of the medical community for years as a practical way to avoid chronic health conditions.  Diet and exercise recommendations are becoming not only more common for prevention, but also prescribed as a practical way to combat existing cases of heart disease, diabetes, and cancer to prevent or halt the progression of an illness. Urologist who treat erectile dysfunction and prostate cancer have coined a medical term used to describe exercise of the penis, they call this type of exercise “Penile Rehabilitation.”


For more information, check out our “Guide to Erectile Dysfunction“.


Erectile Dysfunction and Penile Rehabilitation

Urologist are medical doctors who study and treat disorders of the urinary system.  They are considered the foremost experts in the treatment of erectile dysfunction.  Even though all urologist are trained surgeons, non-surgical treatments for erectile dysfunction are gaining acceptance among the most respected urologist and medical centers in the world.  The University of Texas MD Anderson Center is a leading thought leader in which penile rehabilitation using vacuum therapy is common place.  The Director of Sexual Medicine is Dr. Run Wang who published a clinical study titled “Vacuum Therapy Device for Penile Rehabilitation.” Dr. Wang makes a compelling case that using vacuum therapy following prostate cancer is a preventative form of exercise that significantly improves a man’s chance of returning to normal sexual function following a surgical procedure to treat prostate cancer known as a radical prostatectomy.

Erectile Dysfunction Exercises

There is clinical research that indicates that the use of a vacuum erection device as a first-line therapy in treatment of erectile dysfunction following a radical prostatectomy is recommended as a very effective preventative treatment.  The Journal of Sexual Medicine publish an article in February of 2017 Titled “Vacuum Erectile Device for Rehabilitation after Radical Prostatectomy” Volume 14, Issue 2, p184-186.  This study recommends men start using vacuum therapy 2 weeks following a radical prostatectomy as part of an exercise or penile rehabilitation regiment in which it is used 5 minutes twice daily with a 1 minute interval, Monday through Friday.  This research is very focused on prostate cancer patients and does not address the benefits of creating erections using vacuum therapy to decrease penile shortening, penile shrinkage, or the prevention of program cell death in men who suffer from diabetes or other medical conditions.  It will be interesting to see if this type of research emerges in the future.

Natural Ways to Treat Erectile Dysfunction

In a medical community that often focuses on drug therapies and surgeries it is very exciting to see more and more thought leaders and leading medical institutions focusing on natural ways to treat erectile dysfunction.  When a man uses vacuum therapy, no drugs pass the skin through needles.  Oral medications are commonly used in those cases in which they are effective, but oral medication use the circulatory system and pass drugs throughout the whole body.  Surgical procedures are without argument the most invasive form of erectile dysfunction treatment.  Each of these treatments has a place in medicine and are effective forms of managing erectile dysfunction depending on the goals of the physician and medical condition of the individual who is seeking treatment.  Vacuum therapy is the only proven treatment in which no chemicals are ingested or surgical procedures are performed.

Soma Therapy-ED for Erectile Dysfunction

Many of the most respected medical centers, including those mentioned in this article, in the United States and around the world have prescribed Soma Therapy-ED for erectile dysfunction or penile rehabilitation.  If you would like to order a Soma Therapy-ED device without a prescription you can do so directly on our website or give us a call at 1-800-827-8382.
