Prostatitis is usually called inflammation that causes the tissues to swell and cover the man's prostate gland, located just below the bladder. The treatment of prostatitis today is done through many modern methods, such as treatment with antibiotics, physiotherapy, hirudotherapy, herbal medicines, immune corrective therapy, prostate massage and lifestyle correction.
When a patient is admitted to a medical facility, the doctor examines the patient for the reasons that caused the prostatitis. The treatment of the disease will be prescribed exactly according to the factors that contributed to the appearance of the disease.
Treatment of prostatitis begins with the diagnosis of the disease, which, in the first place, includes an interview with a urologist. The doctor then examines the patient's abdomen and genitals, palpating the prostate with his finger, inserting it into the rectum. During this examination, the doctor can diagnose the swelling, swelling and tenderness of the prostate.
After the rectal examination, the urologist directs the patient to give semen, urine and prostate secretions. These tests allow you to judge the presence or absence of signs of infection in them. Sperm culture is sometimes required.
The appointment of urodynamic studies will allow the doctor to understand how serious the effect of the disease is on the urination process.
Rectal and ultrasound of the kidneys and bladder allow the urologist to judge the volume and structure of the prostate gland, the volume of urine residues, the presence of a tumor or stones in the bladder, the presence of a blood clot or stonein the lower third of the ureter.
Based on the above analyzes and studies, the urologist prescribes treatment for an insidious and difficult to treat disease such as prostatitis. The treatment of prostatitis will give positive results only if it is complex and chosen by a competent doctor.
Antibacterial treatment of prostatitis
Due to the fact that prostate inflammation is often contagious in nature, doctors prescribe the treatment of prostatitis as an antibiotic treatment. The result of the treatment will be positive only if the urologist chooses the right treatment and the patient strictly follows the prescribed treatment. We must remember that the initial course of treatment with antibiotics can not be stopped - in this way, it is possible to harm not only the diseased organ, but also the whole body as a whole.
The patient should inform the doctor about any, sometimes not significant, changes in his body. If the patient did not feel any change during 2-3 days of treatment, then the doctor should replace the antibiotic with another, but not cancel it.
The most commonly prescribed drugs for treatment are broad-spectrum drugs - penicillins.
Also, modern medicine makes extensive use of the fluoroquinolone group media. Germs do not develop resistance to these drugs - this is one of the most important properties of this group of antibiotics.
In addition, many doctors prescribe tetracycline drugs for treatment.
Sometimes such highly effective new generation drugs are used. They should be used only after consulting a doctor.Antibacterial treatment of prostatitis in patients with chronic prostatitis lasts about one and a half months. In advanced cases, treatment of prostatitis is extended for up to 16 weeks. Occasionally, during antibiotic therapy, the patient develops intestinal discomfort. In this regard, the patient is prescribed the intake of money that restores the intestinal microflora.
Dosage and dosage are prescribed by the urologist in each case separately.
Treatment of prostatitis through physiotherapy consists of the use of various methods, the main of which are ultrasound, laser therapy, electrical stimulation, magnetotherapy, microwave therapy, UHF, galvanization, drug electrophoresis, darsonvalization, darsonvalizationmud.
Ultrasound is used as high frequency waves that a person cannot hear.
Laser treatment is a fairly common, almost painless method. It is the effect of laser beams on the tissues of a diseased organ or on the reflex zones.
Treatment of prostatitis with electrical stimulation is the effect of an electrical pulse that causes muscle contractions in an organ. Electrical stimulation is divided into rectal, perineal and urethral.Magnetotherapy is a treatment for prostatitis by exposure to a constant magnetic field and a low-frequency alternating field in the tissues of the affected organ. Microwave therapy is the effect of a high frequency electromagnetic field on the affected tissues. UHF is a set of therapeutic measures using tissue-connected capacitor plates.
Galvanizing is a processing method providing low direct current and low voltage.
Drug electrophoresis is a simultaneous effect on low power DC tissues and special drugs that are introduced into the tissues with its help. The current increases the ionic activity in the tissues, while the pharmacological effect of the drugs appears.
Darsonvalization is a method of treatment through a high-frequency, low-power, high-voltage, high-voltage pulse current.
Medical microclusters - enemas, for which various infusions and decoctions of herbs are used.
Baths used to treat the disease are prescribed in general or local living rooms. During the baths, different medicinal liquids of different temperatures are used.
Mud procedures - the use of healing mud. Treatments may include the use of external mud applications or the insertion of mud pads into the anus.
Leeches are a wonderful gift from nature to humanity. With the help of these living creatures, many diseases can be cured, including prostatitis. The treatment of prostatitis with leeches is carried out according to the following scheme: the leeches are placed in places located 3 cm from the anus (anus) and the arrangement should look like the letter "X". The center of the letter is the anus, the ends of the letter are the position of the leeches.
A very different method of treatment is also widely used: leaving about 2 cm in each direction from the middle suture of the perineum, leeches are placed. It is not recommended to place leeches directly on the perineal suture. The course is about 4-5 treatment procedures. In one session, 4 leeches are used. After each session, take a break of 5-6 days.
Herbal medicinesPhytotherapy is a complex of therapeutic measures with medicinal tinctures, decoctions, juices, infusions prepared from medicinal plants. Some of these drugs must be taken internally, while others are used externally, injected into the urethra. Herbal medicine is an additional treatment that helps the body to deal with the disease faster.
The bark, seeds, roots, buds and rhizomes of plants are commonly used to make decoctions, for infusions - flowers, leaves, grass and stems. There are a huge number of prescriptions for making medicines.
One of the most popular recipes is the infusion of birch and oat buds mixed with infusion of rose (1: 1), which is taken half a glass 1 or 2 times a day.
Chestnut horse bark tincture (pour 250 ml of 25 grams of chopped bark, insist in the dark for 10 days, shaking occasionally). After that, drain the tincture, take 30 drops 3 times a day.
Pour the parsley and mix with any honey (1: 1), consume 3 times a day, 2 tbsp. spoonful.
Immune corrective treatment of prostatitis
Treatment of prostatitis also consists of increasing immunity and activating the body's defenses. In this case, doctors prescribe immune corrective treatment. It includes the intake by the patient of various vitamins, immunomodulators, biostimulants, herbal medicines and other means.
The use of afala by patients with chronic prostatitis, the treatment of which has been carried out in a complex way, increases the effectiveness of the treatment and contributes to the greater preservation of the achieved results. The drug is well tolerated and has no contraindications. It can be combined with any other treatment. Afala is indicated for patients with chronic prostatitis of categories II and III A from the 1st day of treatment.
Treating prostatitis with prostate massage is an unpleasant but very effective way to treat the disease. The massage is done by an experienced doctor. First, with the help of a gloved index finger, he feels the prostate gland, trying to correct its parameters, the degree of pain, the ratio of the right and left lobes of the gland, and also to examine the quality of the mucus in the rectum. After that, the doctor immediately starts the massage process itself.
In order to avoid stagnation of blood in the prostate gland, the patient must move a lot, walk, play sports, etc.The onset of prostatitis is most often caused by a sedentary lifestyle, a sedentary job and infrequent sexual intercourse. They cause congestion in the prostate. In this case, for therapeutic purposes, the patient is prescribed physical activity (feasible), therapeutic exercise, walking in the fresh air, special diet, etc.
Therefore, the complex treatment of patients with chronic prostatitis should include:
- antibiotic therapy (only in patients with chronic prostatitis of an infectious nature, including latent condition).
- symptomatic treatment to eliminate the main manifestations of the disease.
- pathogenetic therapy aimed at restoring microcirculation in the prostate, restoring the drainage of prostate glands along the secretory ducts, normalization of urination, stabilization of the immune and hormonal system, prevention of excessive formation of fibrous tissue.
There are many signs that a patient has prostatitis "installed" in their body. The treatment of this disease is very difficult and long-term, giving positive results only if the patient strictly follows all the prescriptions of the urologist.
