When deciding which injuries to rest and which to move, ask first the question “Can I physically move it?” and if the answer is yes, you do. There is no injury anywhere in the body which will benefit from strict rest (IE idleness) over movement of some description. There are many reasons for this. My experience in PE is limited. However, I am a former rehabilitation consultant for athletes, a current senior lab technician in both research and clinical settings and a studying endocrinologist. Given that I have a fair few years and degrees of anatomical and physiological understanding, plus having yet to see any evidence either in research or real life to point towards rest>movement for recovery, I’ll recommend the movement.
For the record I will not diagnose online, but I will say again, I have yet to see even one example of any level of trauma wherein movement was possible and not beneficial.
I posted, I was just wondering, So you know about those certain glands that are in different parts of the body, that secrete hormones directly into the blood? That could be helpful here. I read about Endocrinology many years ago and what I remember and correct me if I am wrong, there is a mechanisms and signals, right. I am probably going to make an ass of myself and It has been a hell of a long time since I did a small study on this ( it has been about 25 years ago or so) I forget what the mechanism is called but it is a communication, it is a chemical communication between cells in a tissue or an organ, maybe? There are signals. I don’t remember what the scientific words for them are but one of them, is a chemical that has effects or acts on that the same cell. Another signal is another chemical that reacts within the that same cell. There is one more and that is a hormone that is released into the blood as a secretory nueron, or something like that. So Dozeknow, am I kind of on track? I remember it was interesting and goes pretty deep as well.
Let’s discuss the penis and movement. Have you ever injured your penis hanging weights off of it? A ligament/ligament get hyper-stretched and by the time the weights are released, damage is done. It hurts and at times, members here were not able to get an erection for a few days. A few days to let that heal really works even though, you can still move the penis. Have you ever pumped? A penis in a cylinder that is over vacuumed. It can move, but why continue to manipulate it. We let ourselves heal. The penis is not just a muscle, it consist ligaments as you know. It is not like an arm or a leg, it is a penis. Do you know anything about penis discoloration? It is internal bruising and it can take years to disappear, but in most cases you have it for life. Do you know about plateauing? Over exercising can cause the penis to plateau, meaning that the penis stops gaining, period. In most cases, it take about 6 months of rest to be able to come back to PEing to get the gains started.
To sum this all up, the bottom line is the biggest thing that this forum preaches is Safety, and a lot of these exercises can be detrimental to a penis. We don’t want that for any of our members, and what’s a few days off any ways. A lot of members will post of their injury, but may not be getting in the details that should.
I must say, I am very impressed with your education. I do look forward to reading your posts, maybe you can thread something that you may think that can help us with injuries, for example, discoloration, internal bruising. This is a problem to many here, it is ugly. Just a thought, I am just trying to pick your brain.
Now then, Lets get back to Panamera’s thread.
