Encouraging Evidence for Acupuncture Treatment of Prostatitis

Acupuncturists frequently treat pelvic, urinary and genital problems arising from a variety of causes. This recent study, which can be read about here provides western medical reinforement of something that those of us in the field have always known: that chronic prostatitis generally responds extremely well to acupuncture and herbal treatment.

Chronic prostatitis may manifest with symptoms such as pelvic and/or perineal pain which last longer than three months. These symptoms may wax and wane and the pain may range from mildly annoying to debilitating. Pain may radiate to the lower back and rectum, making sitting difficult. Dysuria, arthralgia, myalgia, unexplained fatigue, abdominal pain, constant burning pain in the penis, and frequency may also be present. Frequent urination and increased urgency may suggest interstitial cystitis. Equally disturbing, there may be post-ejaculatory pain.
