Loss of Penis Sensitivity and Back Problems - Are They Linked?

Feb 26th 2015 at 6:01 PM

Penis sensitivity is of primary importance for a man's sexual satisfaction; the proper stimulation of the nerve endings in the penis is what sends a man into bouts of ecstasy. Yet diminished penis sensitivity occurs frequently in men, for a variety of reasons – and one of them could be related to back problems. Maintaining adequate penis health, then, includes paying attention to issues affecting the back and spinal column as well as the organ itself.

Why back problems?

It seems odd that a problem with the back could have an effect on that delicious tingling sensation that men enjoy when the penis is being stimulated. It might make some sort of sense if there was a connection with, say, a guy's posterior or his ears, which are often considered erogenous zones. While running a soft finger down the back does produce a nice sensation, the back is hardly thought of as a hotbed of sensual stimulation.

And yet there is a direct link. But to understand why, one needs to look at the brain first.

The brain

Guys may be said to think with their male members, but the brain is really the dude in charge. The brain's responsibilities include a major role in how a person "feels" physical sensations.

How does it do this? Basically, the brain is connected to a massive network of nerve pathways that drop from the skull and run throughout the body. When a person touches a substance or when an outside source touches him, the receptors send a signal up the nerve pathways to the brain.  The brain processes this information and sends a response: "Whoa, that's hot!" "Hey, don't stop stroking!" "Would it kill you to use a little lubricant?"

The spine

These pathways use the spine as the major "gathering route" between the brain and the nerve endings. If the nerve system is made up of pathways, the spine is like the super expressway for the nerve system. And just like on a real highway, a little incident in the spine can have major consequences.

Significant back issues, in which the spine and its collective components suffer a major injury, can cause severe damage in several areas, including the relay of nerve information. But even tiny injuries, which may seem insignificant, can cause a diminishing of feeling in an area. When that damage is in one of the neural pathways that processes information involving the penis, this can cause a loss of penis sensitivity.


In some cases, the injury can be such that a doctor's aid is required to assess the damage and to determine what treatments are necessary to restore the nerve system to its proper functioning. Sometimes surgery is required.

In other cases, however, much less drastic measures can be employed. For example, many men with a loss of penis sensitivity find that therapeutic exercises, healthy dietary alterations and application of specially formulated crèmes can help restore much-needed penile sensation.

The use of a high-quality penis health crème (health professionals recommend Man1 Man Oil) should be part of a restorative treatment plan. Regular application of a crème that includes acetyl L-carnitine may be beneficial. This ingredient is neuroprotective and has been proven to assist in treating peripheral nerve damage, such as may occur on the member from years of use. In addition, a crème that includes a wide range of necessary vitamins, such as A, B5, C, D and E, can help to further enable the health of the penis by enhancing the healing process and allowing the member to become more fully responsive to sensation. And a stimulated male organ is a happy male organ.
