Date:2020-09-15 click:0

Chronic nonbacterial prostatitis, also known as aseptic prostatitis, is an inflammatory disease of unknown cause. In 1981, Schaeffer et al. found that the number of patients with chronic nonbacterial prostatitis was 8 times that of bacterial prostatitis. In addition to physical, chemical, and mental factors, which lead to prostate congestion and secretion siltation, many nonbacterial prostatitis may be an infectious disease that has not been identified.
Therefore, most of the treatment methods are to help patients alleviate symptoms.
1. Western medicine treatment
1.1 General treatment
It includes health education, psychological and behavioral counseling, which have positive effects. Patients should abstain from alcohol, avoid spicy and stimulating food, holding urine, and sitting for a long time, pay attention to keeping the private area warm and strengthen physical exercise. Also, a sitz bath helps relieve pain.
1.2 Drug treatment
The three most commonly used drugs are antibiotics, α - receptor blockers, and nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory, and analgesic drugs. Other drugs also have different degrees of efficacy in relieving symptoms.

It is mostly empirical treatment, and the theoretical basis is to speculate that some pathogens with negative conventional culture cause this type of inflammation.
It is recommended to take antibiotics orally for 2-4 weeks, and then decide whether to continue antibiotic treatment according to the efficacy feedback. It is recommended to continue to use antibiotics only when the clinical symptoms are relieved. The recommended course of treatment is 4-6 weeks.
α - receptor blocker:

It can relax the smooth muscle of the prostate and bladder and improve the symptoms and pain of the lower urinary tract, so it becomes the basic drug for the treatment of prostatitis. The results of the control study showed that the above drugs could improve the urination symptoms, pain, and quality of life index. The course of treatment of α - blocker should be at least 12 weeks.
Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory and analgesic drugs (NSAIDs):

It is an empirical drug for the treatment of type Ⅲ prostatitis related symptoms. Its main purpose is to relieve pain and discomfort. The clinical control study confirmed that celecoxib was effective in improving the pain and other symptoms of IIIA prostatitis patients.
Plant preparation:

The therapeutic effect of plant preparation in chronic nonbacterial prostatitis has been paid more and more attention. It is a selective treatment method. Plant preparations mainly refer to pollen preparations and plant extracts, which have a wide range of pharmacological effects, such as non-specific anti-inflammatory, anti-edema, promoting bladder detrusor contraction, and urethral smooth muscle relaxation.
Antidepressants and anxiolytics:

It is mainly used for chronic prostatitis patients with depression and anxiety. These drugs can not only improve the patients' emotional disorder symptoms but also improve the discomfort and pain.
1.3 Physical therapy
Ultrasonic therapy:

The main effect of this treatment method is to improve blood circulation, especially the blood in the local gland, so as to improve metabolism. However, this method is only suitable for patients with dysuria caused by inflammation and excessive white blood cell content in the prostatic fluid.
Short-wave treatment:

This treatment is to sterilize and resist infection by enhancing resistance and immunity, mainly by short wave. It is most suitable for patients with acute and chronic inflammation and excessive white blood cell content in glandular fluid.
Microwave therapy: 

This is a kind of high-frequency electrical therapy, which can penetrate into the focus and thoroughly sterilize. This physical therapy is a new breakthrough. However, due to the sensitivity of testicles to microwaves, more attention must be paid to the treatment, and testicles should be injured accidentally.
Green comprehensive therapy:

This method has many advantages, such as strong drug penetration, no antibiotic resistance, repair damage, etc. before warm prompt: physical therapy is generally used in adjuvant therapy. It can not fundamentally improve the pathological changes caused by inflammation and other factors, but can only temporarily relieve the symptoms.
Radio-frequency radiation and other therapies can also cause damage to the organs around the prostate. Because the curative effect is not exact, the patient's acceptance is difficult, or it may cause erectile dysfunction and infertility, which leads to the limitation of male application in a normal growth period, so it has not been widely used.
2.Traditional Chinese medicine(TCM) treatment
Cupping, acupuncture, scraping, moxibustion, and other TCM treatment have a very good auxiliary effect on chronic nonbacterial prostatitis, and it can improve the discomfort of patients.

However, if you want to get rid of this disease completely, you can choose Dr. Lee Xiaoping's patented herbal medicine Diuretic and Anti-inflammatory Pill, which has the effect of clearing away heat and dampness, promoting blood circulation and removing blood stasis, and can effectively kill all kinds of pathogens and eliminate inflammation.
Moreover, it has the functions of anti calcification, anti-fibrosis, detumescence, and clearing glands. Therefore, it can not only have the effect of targeted treatment of chronic nonbacterial prostatitis but also help the patients to keep a balance between Qi and blood circulation, enhance the immunity, so as to achieve the goal of a thorough cure and preventing recurrences.
