Acupuncture is an Excellent Means of Resolving with Chronic Prostatitis and Chronic Pelvic Pain Syndrome

Diagnosing and treating chronic pelvic disorders is usually done in error due to the difficulty of diagnosing the exact cause of the pain. When this happens, the patient cannot receive an effective type of treatment that not only addresses the pain but resolves the underlying condition as well.

There are occasions when the cause of the pelvic pain is an undiagnosed proctitis. The word proctitis often means that there is an inflammation in the lining of the rectum, known as rectal mucosa. This condition can be acute (short term) or chronic (long term) with a variety of causes. Proctitis may be the result of antibiotics and other kinds of medical treatments. It may also be caused by Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis, herpes, yeast infections or other conditions that lead to small intestine or colon inflammation. It can also be brought about by cholecystitis, panceatitis (chronic), allergies, bacterial infection, or rectal injury.

Proctitis symptoms may mimic some of the symptoms of chronic pelvic pain disorders, including constipation, discomfort and heaviness after meals, indigestion, gas, bloating, pain on the left side of the stomach, itching, and rectal and/or anal pain. This is so because the colon, rectum, prostate, and urinary bladder share mucosal epithelium permeability and sacral parasympathetic and sympathetic nervous system.

In a lot of instances, these symptoms occur in patients with a specific occupation. An inordinate number of cases of proctitis is seen in automobile drivers such as taxi, limo, and truck drivers which leads to the conclusion that long hours of seating in the same positions coupled with frequent bumps of the pot holes and constant vibration is one of the possible overlooked causes of this problem. These repeated, frequent albeit small traumas can lead to irritation and/or inflammation as well as neurological abnormalities resulting in pelvic floor dysfunction. Moreover, they may be some of the underlying reasons for chronic pelvic pain syndrome, interstitial cystitis, painful bladder syndrome, prostatodynia, and chronic abacterial prostatitis. All these conditions have the above-mentioned overlapping and similar urinary symptoms of pain, urgency, and frequency.

In terms of Western conventional medicine, all pelvic conditions are deemed incurable and not manageable. Surgical procedures and pharmaceutical therapy sadly have proven inadequate, not to mention expensive. There are on the average around 12.5 million people In United States suffering from these debilitating conditions. Fortunately, for people diagnosed with Chronic Prostatitis and Chronic Pelvic Pain Syndrome there is an effective treatment available. This treatment is acupuncture, a Chinese healing procedure in Spokane that has been around for thousands of years constantly producing excellent results without side effects and has shown to work ideally against most types of chronic inflammation.

Depending on the patient’s constitution and symptoms, a certain type of acupuncture protocol will usually produce excellent outcomes. Using a focused and multi-level approach when attempting to resolve the underlying cause of the problems, not just the symptoms, often produces guaranteed results.
