Treatment and prevention of prostatitis is a difficult task aimed at eliminating causative factors, improving blood circulation in the organ, increasing the body's resistance and correcting lifestyle.
Treatment of prostatitis
Treatment of prostatitis should be comprehensive, competently and individually selected. It includes the following activities: antibacterial therapy, physiotherapy, prostate massage, immunocorrection, and maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Only after observing all medical recommendations and carrying out a full course of therapeutic measures can the desired result be achieved.
Antibiotic therapy is necessary for prostatitis, since the cause of the disease is an infectious agent. Antimicrobial drugs are prescribed after testing to identify the pathogen and determine its sensitivity to antibiotics. The duration of treatment is strictly individual, but on average it is 5-7 days. If there is no visible improvement in the patient's condition within three days from the start of treatment, the drug is replaced with an antibiotic from another pharmacological group.
Physiotherapy for prostatitis is a rather effective component of the treatment of this ailment. Most often, the following physiotherapeutic methods are used: laser exposure, electromagnetic oscillations, an increase in temperature in the rectum, ultrasound waves.
Prostate massage is not the most pleasant procedure that causes painful sensations and psychological discomfort in men. This is due to the prolonged knee-elbow position and the feeling of the urologist's moving finger in the anus. The effect of the massage is to remove the inflamed secretion through the ducts into the urethra and improve blood circulation in the gland, which increases the effectiveness of antibiotic therapy.
To prevent the recurrence of inflammation in the prostate and the negative effect of antibiotic therapy on the state of the immune system, immunocorrection is required. The selection of such drugs is carried out by an immunologist after receiving the results of a number of special tests.
Maintaining a healthy lifestyle, optimizing sleep and wakefulness, regular physical activity, proper nutrition are necessary not only for treatment, but also for the prevention of disease.
