Hi
It does not sound like that the size of testicle gone down due to exercises. Sometimes during torsion if the torsion lasts longer around 6 hrs, the vascular supply to testicle is compromised. It causes dead testicle and fixing the torsion after that point does not help. The size of testicle shrinks gradually. I would suggest you get it checked by color doppler of testicle to confirm that whether is there any blood supply left or not.
Thanks
