Chronic prostatitis/chronic pelvic pain syndrome (CP/CPPS) is a common problem for men with a prevalence of 2–10% worldwide. Some time conventional drugs dont help and even less so if cause of chronic prostatitis is unknown.
Based on evidence, acupuncture treatments have the ability to reduce pain and inflammation. A 2015 urology clinic study of a hundred participants (afflicted by prostatitis) has shown the efficacy of acupuncture as a good therapeutic modality treatment of chronic prostatitis and chronic pelvic pain syndrome showing a significant decrease in this condition.
You might want to try this alternative modality for yourself if you suffer of chronic prostatitis. We recommend you to consult your physician prior to any alternative therapies.
