Methods of treatment of prostatitis in men - drugs, folk remedies, sports therapy

A man with prostatitis at the urologist's appointment

In men, prostatitis can take two forms: acute or chronic. In the first case, inflammation of the prostate gland develops rapidly. This form of prostatitis manifests itself with severe symptoms. The main symptom is painful, delayed urination. Toilet calls can be up to 6 times per hour and a small amount of urine will be excreted. In this case, unpleasant sensations in the lower abdomen and perineum, cramps and burning sensations may appear. The acute stage of prostatitis is accompanied by erectile dysfunction and fever with characteristic symptoms (weakness, headache, etc. ).

The next form of prostatitis, chronic, differs from the first stage in the milder severity of clinical symptoms. In this case, the body temperature is normal, but the man's sexual activity decreases.

Principles of treatment

First aid for acute prostatitis should only be provided by medical personnel.Self-medication is strictly prohibited. Painkillers can be used to relieve severe pain. However, it is desirable not to use a tool that can cause blurred clinical symptoms before a medical examination.

In the hospital, doctors perform antibacterial and detoxification therapy. Painkillers, antispasmodics and anti-inflammatory drugs are used. Physiotherapy procedures and massage are prescribed to the patient only after the acute symptoms have resolved and the intensity of clinical symptoms has decreased.

Prostate massage

With a sedentary lifestyle in the small pelvis and chronic prostatitis that develops against the background of obstruction, the patient needs prostate massage. Allows the contents of the prostate gland to be discharged into the bladder through ducts. This allows the size of the body to be reduced, which in turn stops the pressure on the urethra and frees the lumen to secrete urine, greatly easing the man's condition.

In the acute stage, these actions are contraindicated, because they can only aggravate the course of the disease.

A man should treat chronic prostatitis with an integrated approach at home. To do this, he must take the medication prescribed by his doctor and may also use special exercises to relieve congestion and folk remedies.


Mandatory antibacterial treatment is prescribed not only for acute inflammation, but also for chronic prostatitis provoked by the bacterial flora. With the help of antibiotic therapy you can get rid of the disease in a short time, but you need to follow the scheme of their use and dosage of drugs. In the acute stage of prostatitis, a person is given an intravenous or intramuscular injection to have a faster effect on the bacterial flora. Tablets or suppositories are used to treat chronic forms of the disease. The latter has less effect on the liver, but is no less effective than tablets.

Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs are often used with inflammation of the prostate gland. Intoxication helps to relieve pain symptoms and eliminate inflammatory foci. They are in the form of oral tablets and rectal suppositories. The second option is more appropriate, because the rectum is located near the inflamed prostate, which has a local effect on the focus of the disease.

Antispasmodics and painkillers are used for severe pain. The first group helps to relieve muscle spasms in the internal organs. They relax the smooth muscles of the prostate gland. Alpha-blockers are also used to prevent spasms. There is a special rectal suppository with analgesic effect.

Venotonic drugs are used to improve blood circulation in the small pelvis with obstruction.

Herbal remedies are used to treat and prevent chronic prostatitis. Drugs derived from a similar prostate extract have a similar effect.

If prostatitis is triggered by an inflammatory process rather than an infection, it may be due to a disrupted blood supply to the muscle tissue surrounding the prostate gland. Exercise can effectively restore blood circulation. The most effective is squatting.

Test gymnastics is performed to get started. To do this, stretch your arms straight over your head and do deep squats. If you can sit at least 50 times without pain in your legs, this is a good result. In contrast, it indicates muscle weakness and insufficient blood supply to the pelvic organs, including the prostate.

Squats are performed 3 times a week. An exercise includes 3 sets of 50 repetitions each. There is a 3-minute break between them. Other exercises are recommended to increase the number of squats:

  • sit on the floor, keep your hands behind your back and cross your legs 20 times like scissors;
  • lie on your stomach and lift your straight legs 20 times.

You can use the following with these exercises:

  1. Lie on your back, bend your legs at the knees and press them to your chest so that your knees are as close to your face as possible. You should cover your feet with your hands and stay in this position for 5-20 minutes. The effect will depend on the duration of training, but you should not lie for more than 20 minutes.
  2. After waking up in the morning, massage the perineum for 5 minutes. It will help to get rid of the stagnation in the prostate gland that occurs at night.
  3. Stand on your feet, place them on top of each other, sit on 1/3, and take turns bringing your knees back and forth in this position. Exercise should be done 5 minutes before breakfast. The evening can be repeated.
