While discomfort and pain are defining characteristics, men can also experience associated sexual and urinary problems. For many years the prostate was and often still is wrongly assumed to be the source of the pain and dysfunction - a view that has repeatedly been disproved by medical research.
Drugs and surgery have largely failed to alleviate symptoms or address the cause. Current research has shown that tension and dysfunction in the muscles of Date luther posted 95 theses pelvic floor play a significant and often primary role in the development of this condition and its subsequent symptoms, including pain.
However, "Most physicians neither appreciate nor understand the havoc that chronic tension plays in the pelvic floor. Research has also shown that massage and bodywork can be a very effective treatment.

The term Chronic Pelvic Pain Syndrome came into use in the s when the National Institutes of Health NIHin an attempt to more clearly define and standardize terminology, classified Prostatitis into four categories: Asymptomatic Prostatitis Categories I and II are the result of infections and are treated in the standard way with antibiotics.

Back to top The Conventional Medical Model of Treatment - A Dismal Track Record For decades the medical community - primary care physicians PCPsurologists, and researchers - has struggled to understand the cause of this syndrome and develop effective treatments.
While progress has been made, these efforts have largely failed. In fact, tests beyond those that are initially done to rule out more serious pathology are not usually in the patient's interest. Primary care and urology practices are oriented toward drug and surgery protocols, yet research indicates these approaches are rarely successful.
As a result, men with chronic pelvic pain may become "frustrated and feel misunderstood. Many patients describe a sense of alienation from healthcare providers, who are perceived to be unsympathetic to their pain and disappointment.
Further, when medical tests find no apparent cause for their pain, some men are told that there is nothing wrong with them, implying that their pain may be all in their head. This wrong assumption can be - and often is - devastating to the patient. We have so much to learn about pain, especially pain from muscles" .
It is worth noting that the two lead authors are physicians themselves. There is little research, however, to support their use. In a paper in Current Urology Reports, Suh and Lowe state that "Traditional treatments have included antibiotics, alpha-blockers, and anti-inflammatories, but those have not proven to be efficacious therapies through many clinical trials.
Anderson, inasserts that "Traditional therapy to treat these conditions has failed. This includes antibiotics, antiandrogens, anti-inflammatories, alpha-blockers, thermal or surgical therapies, and virtually all phytoceutical [plant-based] approaches.
Westesson and Shoskes agree, saying "The community standard for care for this condition is abysmal Many studies show a response rate no better than a placebo.
In sum, all randomized, placebo-controlled trials of antibiotics in CPPS have shown no benefit. We all use them, patients expect us to prescribe them; however, is the generalized and rampant prescribing of antibiotics justified in this unfortunate patient group?Summary.
Millions of men suffer from pelvic pain and related dysfunction annually. While discomfort and pain are defining characteristics, men can also experience associated sexual and urinary problems.
