Chronic Pelvic Pain Syndrome

If you’re experiencing pain when urinating or a sharp pang in the scrotum and testicles while sitting down, you might be experiencing symptoms of chronic prostatitis or chronic pelvic pain syndrome (CPPS).

CPPS can happen to anyone regardless of age. Anyone who works long hours sitting down with a computer and lacking physical activity might feel symptoms of chronic pelvic pain syndrome. Do you smoke, drink, or often overeat? If you feel pain near the pelvic area, you might be experiencing male pelvic pain and need relief. Athletic men can also endure chronic pelvic pain syndrome due to strain and continued physical stress. 

What is chronic prostatitis/CPPS?

Chronic prostatitis or chronic pelvic pain syndrome is a persistent inflammation of the prostate gland, leading to recurring pain and discomfort in the pelvic region. It is accompanied by symptoms such as pain during urination, frequent urination, pelvic pain or discomfort, and sexual dysfunction. This condition can have a significant impact on quality of life, affecting both physical and emotional well-being.

The prostate is a small gland located below the bladder in men. Despite its relatively small size, it plays a crucial role in the reproductive system, urinary function and overall health. The prostate produces the fluid component of semen that plays a pivotal role in fertility. Chronic prostatitis or CPPS can be caused due to bacterial infection or other causes such as excessive sitting, backflow of urine into the prostate, infrequent ejaculation or stress-related pelvic muscle tension. 

At XY Men’s Care Clinic, we offer a non-surgical and non-invasive treatment method that uses shockwave technology to manage chronic prostatitis. 

Symptoms of CPPS

CPPS doesn’t just cause pain in the pelvic area, it can also cause other symptoms such as: 

  • Pain in the genitals, including the scrotum and testicles 
  • Urinary issues such as increased frequency of urination and pain while urinating
  • Bowel dysfunction with issues such as bloating, constipation, pain with bowel movements and more
  • Sexual dysfunction including erectile dysfunction, painful ejaculations 
  • Pain while exercising, lifting weights or sitting 

Low-intensity shockwave therapy from Men’s Care Clinic can help in reducing the pain caused by CPPS in many men. It introduces surgically precise acoustic pressure that stimulates tissue growth and blood flow, two essential factors for effective healing.

Frequently Asked Questions

Shockwave therapy for Chronic Pelvic Pain Syndrome (CPPS) is a non-invasive treatment that utilizes acoustic waves to alleviate pain and improve symptoms associated with CPPS. CPPS is a condition characterized by chronic pelvic pain and discomfort in the pelvic region. Shockwave therapy can benefit patients by reducing pain, relaxing pelvic muscles, improving blood flow, and promoting tissue healing in the pelvic area.

Shockwave therapy works by delivering high-energy acoustic waves to the affected pelvic area. These waves stimulate tissue repair, improve blood circulation, and promote the release of natural pain-relieving substances. The therapy targets trigger points and tight muscles in the pelvic region, helping to relax the muscles and reduce pain. Additionally, shockwave therapy can help break down scar tissue and promote the healing process in the pelvic area.

During a shockwave therapy session, the patient lies down while a specialized device is applied to the pelvic area. The device delivers acoustic waves to the targeted pelvic muscles and trigger points. The treatment is typically well-tolerated and does not require anesthesia. The duration of each session can vary, but a typical session lasts between 15 to 30 minutes. Multiple treatment sessions, usually spaced apart over a few weeks, are recommended for optimal results.

Shockwave therapy for CPPS is considered a safe and well-tolerated treatment with minimal risks. Some patients may experience temporary discomfort or mild pain during the treatment, but these effects are typically transient. Rarely, mild bruising or skin redness may occur at the treatment site. It is important to consult with a healthcare professional experienced in shockwave therapy to assess individual risks and determine the suitability of the treatment.

The duration of the effects of shockwave therapy for CPPS can vary among individuals. Some patients may experience immediate pain relief and symptom improvement following the treatment, while others may require multiple sessions to achieve optimal results. The effects of shockwave therapy can be long-lasting, but periodic maintenance sessions may be recommended to sustain the benefits over time.
