Although the causes of the onset of the inflammatory process are different, the success of a complete recovery is guaranteed by a comprehensive treatment of prostatitis. Men's disease has become significantly "younger". Moreover, medical statistics show that in recent decades, more than half of men between the ages of twenty and forty have suffered from prostate inflammation.


Inflammation of the prostate progresses in different ways: in acute and chronic form, it can be infectious or not.

Urologists distinguish these types of prostatitis. Therefore, we will reveal the features of systemic prostate gland treatment and its effectiveness.

Types and characteristics of complex therapy

At this stage, the main methods of complex treatment for prostatitis are proposed:

  1. Antibacterial therapy.
  2. Anti-inflammatory treatment.
  3. The use of immunostimulatory therapy.
  4. Physiotherapy procedures.
  5. Prostate massage.

What are the characteristics of each method?

Medication. It is based on the use of antibacterial and anti-inflammatory drugs.

Antibiotics are recommended for bacterial prostatitis. When choosing an antibacterial drug, the sensitivity of pathogenic microorganisms to a particular antibiotic is taken into account.

Recently, urologists have prescribed a group of macrolides. These are new generation drugs that have the ability to penetrate prostate tissues. Their advantage is that they have no toxic effect, they do not kill the intestinal microflora. Antibiotics are used for ten days. Antibacterial drugs are recommended for acute and chronic prostatitis.

Anti-inflammatory therapy includes the use of drugs that inhibit the development of the inflammatory process.

The most effective means of this kind are suppositories, which provide a local anesthetic effect.

  • Ichthyol suppositories - improve blood circulation.
  • Propolis-based suppositories - have a wide range of action.
  • Drugs that stimulate the immune system.

Echinacea extract also serves as a supplement in the long-term treatment of chronic prostatitis.

All of these types are effective only with prolonged use.

The benefits of physical therapy and massage

In the complex treatment of the prostate, physiotherapy procedures are also important. What is their advantage?

  • Improves lymph movement through the lymph vessels. As a result, the cellular particles that accumulate in the tissues are rapidly absorbed by the addition of blood and lymph.
  • Blood circulation increases, this contributes to the rapid penetration of drugs into the prostate.
  • Metabolic processes in the prostate gland are restored.

The most effective physiotherapy procedures are used:

  • the use of low voltage direct current for medical purposes - galvanizing.
  • the use of current pulses to restore the prostate - electrical stimulation.
  • exposure to high frequency electromagnetic field - UHF therapy.
  • magnetotherapy - the use of a fixed or alternating magnetic field.

Physiotherapy is recommended for the treatment of chronic prostatitis. As a rule, such methods have no side effects and contraindications.

Urologists are convinced that proper prostate massage significantly improves the general condition:

  1. It has a beneficial effect on the muscle activity of the gland.
  2. Restores the movement of blood through the vessels.
  3. Promotes the rapid penetration of drugs into the glandular tissue.

Various types of massage are used to treat inflammation, but in some cases it is undesirable:

  • with various diseases of the rectum.
  • Massage increases the risk of infection for acute bacterial prostatitis.

You need to be careful with the massage: only a qualified specialist who understands the causes of the onset of the inflammatory process should do it.

Systematic treatment of the prostate allows you to get rid of painful symptoms of the bladder and urethra, prevents serious complications of the urogenital system and restores sexual activity.

In addition, all of these treatments reduce the chances of new exacerbations and restore prostate gland function. For every man, this is a guarantee of good working ability, healthy well-being.

The maximum positive result can be achieved only by the complex treatment of the disease.
