What is hard Flaccid Syndrome?
Hard Flaccid Syndrome is a condition affecting the penis and is of unknown aetiology among men. However, hard flaccid synrome is believed to be more prevelant between the ages of 18 and 35. It is characterised by penile stiffness when the penis is in a flaccid state and flaccid size. The penis is essentially stiff to the touch, it is engorged and rubber in texture, and is often accompanied by a change in size or shape of erection. There may be a loss in nocturnal erections and it may require a greater degree of stimulation to achieve an erection. However, the most common reason for someone seeking help when suffering form hard flaccid is because of alarming changes in penile shape and size. Patients often self diagnose hard flaccid from reading online forums. It is different from peyronines disease because there are no visible signs of tissue scarring and plaque formation. Nevertheless, hard flaccid is a distressing and poorly understood condition. At Core Body cliniic, our pelvic physiotherapists are experts in the treatment of Hard Flaccid syndrome.
