Chronic prostatitis, mainly caused by the inflammation of the prostate, is a disease of urination and sexual dysfunction. The condition is sometimes also referred to as chronic pelvic pain syndromes, as there are cases where the inflammation is unclear while showing similar symptoms.
Chronic prostatitis is common among men under 50 years of age, and according to local research, the prevalence of the disease in males 5 to 9 percent.
The cause of the disease is not known precisely. Prostate infections can happen due to bacteria or viruses, autoimmune diseases, stress, pelvic damage, neurological abnormalities, and many other factors. Frequent urination, urination pain, perineum and pelvic pain, including testicles, various urinary tract discomforts, including residual urine, are symptoms of the disease.
Conventional treatments include antibiotics, alpha-blockers, analgesics, skeletal muscle relaxants, prostate massage, heat therapy, and biofeedback. However, as the cause of inflammation is unclear, and various factors lead to the disease, it is difficult to treat, while frequent relapses reduce the quality of life.
Studies confirm that low-intensity extracorporeal shockwave is effective in treating prostatitis, by reducing inflammation and promoting tissue recovery.
Extracorporeal shock wave treatment delivers an electric shock wave to painful areas outside the body.
Low-intensity extracorporeal shock therapy for patients with chronic prostatitis and chronic pelvic pain syndrome reduces the inflammatory response. It heals tissues by directly applying low-intensity extracorporeal shock waves to the prostate gland.
Low-intensity extracorporeal shockwave therapy directly applies the shockwave to the prostate in order to reduce the inflammatory response, and to heal tissues through vascular remodelling and anti-inflammatory effects.
MHC urologists are trained at using Shockwave Therapy for treating Prostatitis and Chronic Pelvic Pain.
