Date:2023-04-04 click:0

Epididymitis is a common disease seen in young and middle-aged people. When the body's resistance declines, pathogenic bacteria (like E. coli, staphylococcus, streptococcus, etc.) enter the vas deferens and retrograde into the epididymis, causing inflammation. Epididymitis will gradually transform into urethritis, prostatitis, seminal vesiculitis, and other diseases. So particular attention is required. 


Most epididymitis is caused by a urinary infection spreading along the vas deferens to the epididymis. Transurethral instrumentation, frequent catheterization, indwelling catheter after prostatectomy, and other factors can cause epididymitis.

Patients with epididymitis can generally soak in hot springs and go swimming. Epididymitis is an inflammatory disease that occurs in the epididymis. Typically, hot spring bathing and swimming will not aggregate the condition. Appropriate swimming can enhance physical fitness and is conducive to disease recovery.

Swimming can:

1. Enhance the body's immunity: appropriate exercise can promote blood circulation and improve immunity. Swimming, a sport to prevent colds, is a common exercise program. For hypertension, gastrointestinal diseases, neurasthenia, and other more common diseases, swimming has a good prevention and relief effect and improves the body's ability to resist disease.

2. Promote blood circulation, which in turn deposits the absorption of inflammation.

3. Relax the body and mind. The impact of water on the body will help relax the whole body, flush out all the negative emotions of the body and calm the anxious mood. It helps to relieve the mood of epididymitis patients and indirectly promotes the recovery of the disease.

Swimming will help relieve stress and depression. Endorphins are quite good hormones that improve people's mood, and swimming can effectively stimulate the secretion of endorphins, allowing people to ease the stress of daily work life; in addition, swimming can make people fully relax their bodies as well as yoga and the effect will be better if combined with regular deep breathing.

At the same time, swimming can calm people down, excluding external distractions and making people more focused, naturally reducing tension and depression. Research has confirmed that swimming can also help restore damaged brain function due to stress through a process known as hippocampal neural regeneration.

Swimming has an auxiliary effect on the treatment of epididymitis. Medication can be used if the cause of epididymitis is a bacterial infection. If it is chronic epididymitis, choosing the traditional Chinese medicine Diuretic and Anti-inflammatory Pill will be more effective.

In addition, patients with epididymitis can also be conditioned in the following ways:

For epididymitis, prevention must be the main focus. In ordinary life, it is necessary to develop good habits and personal hygiene. Patients should drink water frequently to avoid inflammation. They should not be anxious after the disease and promptly go to a professional hospital for treatment to prevent developing into a chronic illness, affecting health.

The following is a specific introduction to the healthcare modes of epididymitis:

I. Spiritual Conditioning

Experts advise that patients with epididymitis should stay relaxed daily, prevent overwork, and participate in appropriate physical activities, such as Chinese deep breathing exercises, taijiquan, etc., to enhance physical fitness and prevent colds. Patients are not recommended to hold back urine. In addition, they should live a regular life and keep the voiding excrement normally.

2. Dietary modifications

Patients should improve their diet structures to prevent the intake of high-cholesterol food. It is recommended to have fewer "red types of meat" (which refer to pork, beef, sheep, and other meats containing high cholesterol) and more "white meats" (which refer to meats with low cholesterol, such as chicken and fish). That will help prevent the incidence of prostate enlargement.

3. Life conditioning

Patients should avoid eating spicy and stimulating products and drinking alcohol to stop the source of endogenous dampness and heat. It is also necessary to prevent the difficulty of urination due to the sympathetic excitation caused by cold in the lower body. Patients should not have excessive intercourse and hold back urine.
