PA Green Wellness Helping Men With Prostate Health
Imagine having a peaceful night sleep followed by the relief of a painless, uninterrupted pee in the morning. Yes, that could be you!
Did you know that chronic prostatitis makes up 25% of visits to urologists? That works out to roughly 2 million visits every year in the US alone, but it doesn’t have to. Chronic non-bacterial prostatitis can be treated quickly and easily with shockwave therapy. Let us show you how.
What Is Chronic Non-bacterial Prostatitis?
Well, ‘Prostatitis’ is an inflammation of the prostate. Unlike bacterial prostatitis, the cause of the ‘nonbacterial’ form is often difficult to diagnose. Nerve damage has been found as the cause in some cases. In many other cases, the cause is considered idiopathic or not identified. To qualify as a chronic form of the disease, your symptoms must have lasted 3+ months.
Symptoms Of Chronic Prostatitis
If you are suffering from chronic nonbacterial prostatitis, you may experience some of the following symptoms:
- Difficulty urinating, such as dribbling or hesitant urination
- Frequent nightly urination
- Urgent need to urinate
- Cloudy urine
- Painful ejaculation
- Pain in the abdomen or groin
- Pain in the area between the scrotum and rectum (perineum)
How Can We Help?
Extracorporeal shock wave therapy (ESWT) can significantly improve one’s quality of life.
According to current studies including one by Ghazi Mohammad Al Edwan in 2016, ESWT (also known as Gainswave Therapy or Shockwave Therapy) can be a good treatment option for chronic prostatitis.
Shockwave therapy is noninvasive and drug-free. You won’t need anesthesia during the procedure. The shockwave therapy ‘wand’ is placed against the skin of the perineum with a small amount of gel to ensure good contact with the skin.
There is very little discomfort or adverse side effects from the treatment. It does not even require a hospital visit.
Now that we know a little more about chronic nonbacterial prostatitis. How is your prostate health? Have you tried antibiotics without any real relief? Has the problem been persisting? Feel free to share your concerns – even if you think it is a small matter. There are no silly questions.
