Common Chronic Prostatitis Symptoms
* Prostate burning or aching
* Swelling of prostate
* Painful urination and urgency
* Lower back pain
* Pelvic floor muscle pain
Treatment for chronic prostatitis symptoms usually includes antibiotics to reduce any infection that may be present. In a lot of cases, it may feel as though there is an infection, but it isn’t there.
Diet modification, hot baths and massage of the prostate gland can also give relief. All of these methods can bring great relief to chronic prostatitis symptoms. New studies are showing that the muscles around the prostate deep in the rectum (pelvic floor muscles), are usually very tight and have multiple trigger points or muscle knots.
When these points are pressed, pain is reproduced. It is important to get a thorough examination of the pelvic floor muscles because they may be the main cause.
