Best Treatments to Give Men Relief From Chronic Pelvic Pain

By    |   Wednesday, 09 Mar 2016 07:32 PM

Chronic pelvic pain syndrome is not life-threating, but it can have a serious negative impact on men’s quality of life. Fortunately, approved treatments exist that can provide relief.

According to Drugs.com, pelvic pain in men can be caused by muscle or nerve conditions, bladder inflammation, irritable bowel syndrome, tumors, prostate problems, and even psychological issues resulting from sexual abuse or drug use.

In addition to medical treatment, Drugs.com provides some general advice to help manage pelvic pain. Some strategies that can help include keeping a journal of pain symptoms. The journal should include specific information about each episode of pain, the severity of pain, time of occurrence and any other information that can help physicians find a pattern or identify the root cause of the pain.

Because tension and stress can make pelvic pain worse, relaxation strategies like meditation and deep breathing techniques also can help.

Finally, if pelvic pain is caused by irritable bowel syndrome, physicians may recommend changes in diet.

HealthDay News reports that the three most common drug treatments for pelvic pain include anti-inflammatories, antibiotics, and alpha-blockers. As many as 95 percent of all pelvic pain cases are triggered by an inflammation of the prostate gland called prostatitis, and a research review published in the Journal of the American Medical Association found that the most effective treatments are a combination of antibiotics and alpha-blockers, especially for men who reported painful or difficult urination.

In addition to these medications, another unconventional treatment is approved by the FDA for treatment of pelvic pain, says The New York Times. The treatment, known as the Wise-Anderson protocol, is suitable for men and women and uses a hand-held therapeutic wand that presses on trigger points in the pelvic muscles. For men, the wand is inserted rectally, and for women, vaginally. This treatment protocol is now approved by the American Urological Association as well. One of its developers, David Wise, says, “People who see us have failed all other treatments.”

According to HealthDay News, Dr. Paul C. Cook says pelvic pain is a poorly understood condition and he advises patients to become proactive in their own care, do their research, and partner with their physicians to manage their pain.
