Prostatitis Treatment

Prostatitis treatment and electrical pulse prostate stimulation

Prostatitis is one of the most wide-spread urological male disease. It involves inflammation of the prostate gland. In most cases it is caused by the impact of an infectious agent, which to a large extent is facilitated by anatomical position of the prostate in the small pelvis. Infection can enter the prostate gland from urinary bladder, urethra, and through blood and lymphatic vessels of the small pelvis.

Clinical signs of prostatitis are many-sided. At first the patient usually feels certain decrease of sexual activity and is not satisfied with the quality of his sexual life. This can be explained by inability to reach multiple orgasms or having not as intense orgasm as usual. The first serious symptoms include reduction of urine stream force, frequent urination during day or night time, imperative feeling of urination, painful urination, painful sensations in the perineum area associated with ejaculation. Step by step most of prostate gland becomes involved in this inflammatory process leading to impotency and even sterility.

Pathogenesis of the disease is based on the formation of “vicious circle”. Initially the prostate is in unfavorable anatomical position causing venous stagnation. This, in turn, causes loss of tissue immunity and leads to contact, lymphogenous or hematogenous infection. Inflammatory process results in deterioration of secretion outflow. Further, glandular acinuses become overfilled with secretion, which is followed by disturbance of microcirculation and contractile function of glandular segments. This creates favorable conditions for spreading the infection involving new prostate segments. And when the greater part of prostate is enveloped in chronic inflammatory process, the bacterium that has caused inflammation no longer plays the leading role, because even in the absence of bacteria the inflammatory process will progress due to involving autoimmune and hardening processes.

Thus it is evident that elimination of infection agents alone will not lead to full recovery. Such therapy will provide a remission of the disease with following reactivation of inflammation. Therefore, the key aspect of prostatitis treatment should be not the antibacterial therapy, but normalization of secretion outflow from glandular acinuses and restoration of blood microcirculation. Increase of contractile activity of muscle elements in pelvic area is also very important.
The above principles require some universal method of treatment, which is physiotherapy, and in the first place electrical pulse stimulation.

According to medical literature pulse stimulation was first used for treatment of men’s diseases in 1899. Further the influence of current stimulation on men’s potency was examined in 1916. Lately different types of physiotherapy are used as an aid in cases of chronic prostatitis and its consequences. These include electrotherapy, dyadinamic currents therapy, pulse stimulation used with transrectal, endourethral and sacro-abdominal methods. These methods influence male hot spots and spinal centers responsible for erection and ejaculation.

But these devices have some disadvantages such as high prices, low capacity, bulky size, impossibility of prostatitis treatment at home, etc. Considering the fact that patients do not like to stay at hospital and prefer out-patient treatment, or even better, at home, they need a simple, compact, and safe physiotherapeutic device, which they may use as many times as they need.

Erectonus electrical pulse prostate stimulator is a highly effective, non-expensive, safe and convenient way how to treat prostatitis at home. It conforms with all of above-stated requirements and may become a good aid for prostatitis patients. Erectile dysfunction cure with Erectonus, as well as the possibility of managing female frigidity, plus use of Erectonus for erotic stimulation constitute additional benefit of this innovative device.

The main forms of prostatitis

  1. Acute bacterial prostatitis
  2. Chronic bacterial prostatitis
  3. Chronic non-bacterial prostatitis
  4. Asymptomatic inflammatory prostatitis

Acute bacterial prostatitis

Typical causative agents for acute bacterial prostatitis are bacteria, provoking sexually transmitted diseases. However, other flora such as colon bacillus, Proteus vulgaris, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, staphylococcus, and streptococcus us also possible.

Symptoms of this disease include pain localized in the perineal region, external sex organs, lower belly, and rectal column, irritant and obstructive urination disorders. Acute bacterial prostatitis is accompanied by fever. Along with fever patients can experience general weakness, dizziness, as well as lack or loss of appetite.

The main treatment of acute bacterial prostatitis involves administration of antibiotics. Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs and pain-killers are used to manage pain syndrome and accelerate elimination of inflammation.

Detoxication therapy is mandatory. It is also recommended to use large amounts of high-vitamin drinks.
At the onset of the disease physiotherapeutic procedures is contraindicated; however, during the decline of the inflammatory process massage, electrophoresis and other procedures are quite effective and can be recommended as a good cure for acute bacterial prostatitis in the course of outpatient treatment stage.

Chronic bacterial prostatitis

Continuous (chronic) inflammation results from an incurable acute prostatitis. It is characterized by a sustained course and complications related to urogentital organs.

Long-lasting course of the disease is determined by an excessive sexual life or sexual abstinence, constipations, and diseases of the genitourinary system.

If bacterial flora is not detected, chronic process is induced by congestive pathologies or structural and functional changes of the prostate gland.

Bacterial prostatitis treatment includes, first of all, antibacterial therapy. The effect of these drugs is aimed at eradication of causative agents giving rise to this complication.

Patients are recommended to avoid hypodynamia and sedentary life-style and to use therapeutic exercises.
Thermal procedures (baths and microclysters), electrophoresis, mechanotherapy, and digital massage are used to improve blood circulation, metabolic and biochemical processes, as well as to raise the tonus of the prostate gland.

Massage is one of the most effective cure for chronic prostatitis during remission.

Mud therapy, ultrasonic procedures, electrophoresis, and laser therapy are also considered to be effective methods in chronic prostatitis treatment.

Chronic non-bacterial prostatitis

Inflammation of the prostate gland with no infection is considered to be one of the most common forms of the disease. It is quite difficult to diagnose, and it is often identified accidentally in the course of examination for sterility or prostate cancer. In these cases high levels of leucocytes and prostate-specific antigen are observed in the seminal fluid.

The main symptoms of non-bacterial prostatitis include urination disorders, pain in pelvis and genitals, and impaired sexual function.

Treatment of the disease is always long-lasting and, unfortunately, it not always ensures positive effect, which results in possible remissions over some period of time.

Notwithstanding the absence of infection patients with non-bacterial prostatitis undergo a course of antibiotics. Rectal anti-inflammatory drugs are used to normalize the function of the prostate gland and reduce pain. Additional vitamins, immunomodulators and drugs for improvement of microcirculation are also used for management of non-bacterial prostatitis.

Along with drug therapy such physiotherapeutic methods as ultrasound, ionic medication, electromagnetic waves, therapeutic exercises, massage of prostate, and acupuncture are used as a cure for non-bacterial prostatitis.

Asymptomatic inflammatory prostatitis

Causes of the development of asymptomatic prostatitis are the same as in the case of the classical course of the disease with the manifested symptoms. These include bacterial infections, hypothermia, reduced immune status, and circulation disorders. At the same time the nature of this disease remains understudied.

Asymptomatic prostatitis is usually diagnosed accidentally either during a planned examination or when a patient seeks medical attention due to other conditions. The main diagnostic index of asymptomatic prostatitis is an increased level of white blood cells in prostatic fluid.

Methods of chronic asymptomatic prostatitis treatment are identical to the methods used to cure other forms of the disease. Antibacterial and anti-inflammatory therapy form the basis of treatment. Reflexotherapy, ultrasonic therapy, prostate massage, thermal exposure and other methods are also widely used for managing asymptomatic prostatitis.
