Chronic Pelvic Pain
Syndrome – Chronic Prostatitis

If you have repeatedly taken antibiotics without signs of clinical improvement, then you are probably suffering chronic prostatitis along with millions of other men who, it turns out, may never have had a prostate infection.

Ninety per cent (90%) of chronic prostatitis cases are actually cases that experience a type of chronic pelvic pain with non-bacterial prostatitis symptoms such as:

  • penile pain
  • erectile dysfunction
  • urge to urinate
  • frequency/difficulty at urination
  • ejaculation pain
  • perineal and suprapubic pain
  • pain in the rectum
  • lumbar spine pain

What most urologists fail to recognize is that structures inside and outside the urinary system, namely the pelvic floor muscles and connective tissue and/or the nervous system, can play a role in non-bacterial prostatitis.

How can pelvic floor physical therapy help?

It is worth mentioning that since 2010 the National Health System of the United Kingdom has replaced the term “chronic prostatitis” with the term “pelvic pain”. A conservative approach (one without drugs or surgery) is the best treatment for chronic pelvic pain.

At Athens Rehab, upon a comprehensive assessment, we will develop an individualized treatment plan which may include manual therapy such as myofascial release, nerve gliding/release, visceral manipulation and biofeedback.

To ensure the best results, treatments at Athens Rehab always last one hour with each patient at each appointment.

We are the only ones in Greece who have international PRPC pelvic floor physical therapy certification and many years of experience in these specialized treatments in Greece and America, with successful case studies of patients who completely changed their quality of life. According to our success rates, over 80% of our patients experience a spectacular reduction in pain within the first 2 months.
