Swimming: Benefits of an Active Lifestyle for Men with Prostatitis

Date:2023-09-18 click:0

Being sedentary and inactive tends to cause the prostate tissue to endure strong localized pressure when the local blood supply is insufficient. This will aggravate the damage of the prostate function and trigger chronic prostatitis, which will lead to impotence, premature ejaculation, decreased sperm quality and other aspects of the problem. 


Sitting for a long time with little movement causes prostatitis. In the process of prostatitis treatment it will also seriously affect the progress of prostatitis treatment and then affect the prostate function and the recovery of male sexual function.

Therefore, adherence to long-term exercise is conducive to increasing the local blood supply of prostate tissue and improving the functional status of the prostate. This is very helpful for the prevention of prostatitis and the treatment and rehabilitation of prostatitis.

Swimming is a healthy exercise, so does swimming help to treat prostatitis?

First of all, what are the benefits of swimming for men?

1. Effective exercise for leg muscles of men

Swimming can exercise male leg muscles, abdominal muscles and pelvic floor muscles.

2. Beneficial to prostate health

Swimming can accelerate the local blood circulation of the prostate, promote the secretion of prostate fluid, and help prevent and control prostatitis. It also eliminates the back pain, lower abdominal pain, and neurasthenia symptoms caused by chronic prostatitis. Men who insist on swimming for 30 minutes a day can greatly reduce the possibility of prostate disease.

3. Increase body resistance

Swimming can promote blood circulation, speed up the heart return, increase lung capacity, and help metabolism. Moreover, under the stimulation of cold water, the capillaries on the surface of the male body will reflexively dilate blood vessels, which enhances the body's ability to adapt to temperature changes and resistance to cold and improves the body's resistance.

Next, let's know about the benefits of swimming for patients with prostatitis.

Swimming can improve blood circulation in men's bodies, making prostate fluid secretion more vigorous and restoring inflammation.

Swimming can relieve the symptoms of lower abdominal pain and discomfort, lower back pain and swelling in patients with prostatitis.

Swimming can promote local blood and lymphatic circulation in the male prostate, which has an adjunctive therapeutic effect on prostatitis.

Swimming can relieve the patient's nervousness and anxiety, thus contributing to the alleviation of neurological dysfunction and neurasthenia in chronic patients.

However, it should be noted that when prostatitis patients swim, the pool water temperature should not be too low. Otherwise, it will stimulate the prostate gland to contract, congestion, and exacerbate the accumulation of glandular fluid in the prostate gland. In addition, the patient must pay attention to keep warm after swimming! 

In addition, we emphasize moderate exercise and discourage high-intensity exercise. Excessive exercise can cause sports trauma, hurting the whole body's organs' physiological function. Therefore, patients should only exercise for a short time when swimming.

There is no doubt that swimming helps treat and recover prostatitis, but swimming or other sports alone cannot cure the disease. Patients can use traditional Chinese medicine to regulate their bodies. Traditional Chinese medicine can improve the patient's body immunity, improve local circulation, regulate the function of the reproductive system, and promote the local healing of chronic inflammation. 

One of the traditional Chinese medicines, Diuretic and Anti-inflammatory Pill, is a good choice for patients. Diuretic and anti-inflammatory pill can penetrate the prostate membrane, and the medicinal effect directly reaches the diseased area, eliminating the inflammation from the root, thus restoring the normal function of the patient's prostate.

In the process of prostatitis treatment, if the patient can adhere to the traditional Chinese medicine conditioning while carrying out the appropriate exercise, the treatment time of prostatitis can be greatly shortened, and it can also help improve the patient's sexual function and improve the quality of sperm.
