Inflammation of the prostate is one of the most common diseases among men. They require a comprehensive treatment of prostatitis, since inaction leads to serious complications. Therapy aimed at stopping the disease includes several effective methods that perform different functions. To achieve recovery, it is required to undergo a full course of medical treatment in combination with herbal remedies, physiotherapy and diet.
What does the complex therapy of prostate inflammation include?
If you do not start to eliminate the disease in time, the health consequences will be very serious.
Only complex treatment helps to cope with prostatitis. You can not do without it in the acute and chronic course of the pathological process.
The course of treatment for prostatitis must necessarily include taking medication. They are the main therapy, as they help suppress the negative influence of the factor that led to inflammation. In addition, the drugs suppress the severity of the symptoms of the disease.
Comprehensive treatment of prostate inflammation performs a number of important functions. It allows you to eliminate the cause of the pathology, stop pathogens in the genitourinary system, strengthen the immune system and solve the problem of deficiency of nutrients that regulate the functioning of internal organs.
Comprehensive treatment of acute or chronic prostatitis will not be effective if the patient refuses to take medication. With such a diagnosis, systemic and local agents should be used.
In the process of selecting drugs for a patient with bacterial prostatitis, an antibiotic is necessarily included in the therapy. With this drug, they not only fight infection, but also carry out the prevention of secondary infection of the genitourinary system.
Antibiotics are required for patients diagnosed with acute prostatitis.
When choosing a drug, the type of pathogen that led to the inflammatory process in the prostate gland is taken into account. The pathogen must necessarily have an increased sensitivity to the antibiotic, otherwise such therapy will not lead to a positive result.
A course of antibiotics is prescribed for men with prostatitis, in which the disease is accompanied by an increase in the general body temperature and pain in the place of the focus of inflammation.
The most popular are drugs that have the particularity of crossing tissue barriers. Thanks to this they manage to be directly in the focus of the inflammatory process. This treatment regimen is followed for no more than 2 weeks. If during this time the patient does not feel relief, repeated tests are carried out and another drug is taken.
As part of the complex therapy should be an anti-inflammatory drug. Helps to eliminate the main symptoms of inflammation of the prostate. Often anti-inflammatory therapy is based on local remedies.
Suppositories can improve the performance of the affected organ, relieve inflammation and reduce pain. They can also perform a protective function.
Inflammation weakens the immune system. Therefore, drawing up a treatment regimen, the doctor necessarily includes the intake of drugs that solve this problem. They strengthen the body's defenses, thanks to which it has the opportunity to independently fight pathogens.
With prostatitis, preparations containing echinacea and zinc are recommended. These funds strengthen the immune system and have a positive effect on the functioning of the male body.
Even after recovery, the doctor may recommend that a man take multivitamins to restore the proper functioning of the immune system and internal organs, which could be affected by illness.
The drug course is based not only on immunomodulatory, antibacterial and anti-inflammatory drugs. To achieve full recovery, the patient will also need to take:
- pain medications;
- Antidepressants (in some cases);
- Diuretics and laxatives.
The patient is prohibited from taking medications that have not been approved by his doctor.
The operation is prescribed only as a last resort, when other methods have proven ineffective.
Prostatitis is not always treated with medication. In some cases, patients are recommended surgical intervention.
Radical therapy is prescribed only if tablets and local preparations do not give the desired result, and the person's condition continues to deteriorate significantly.
Surgery is indicated for a man with prostatitis in the following cases:
- development of prostatic hyperplasia.
- The appearance of abscesses.
- Severe narrowing of the urethral canal.
With these pathologies, the patient's condition becomes critical, so he needs an urgent operation.
In the chronic course of prostatitis, physiotherapeutic procedures are useful for men. They perform a number of important functions. This treatment option leads to an improvement in the flow of lymph and blood, an increase in membrane permeability and the effectiveness of drug treatment.
Outside of exacerbation, inflammation of the prostate gland is treated with massage. This procedure ensures the correct outflow of the secret from the problem area and improves blood circulation in the pelvic organs. Due to this, metabolic processes are accelerated, and harmful substances are eliminated faster from the affected organs.
Prostate massage is strictly prohibited in the acute course of the disease. It is also contraindicated in men who have diseases of the rectum.
Massages are performed in the hospital or at home. In the latter case, it is recommended to do them with the help of massagers.
The electrical impulse has a positive effect on prostate therapy.
This procedure is called electrophoresis. It is one of the most effective in the treatment of chronic prostatitis.
The healing procedure is carried out only with current or in conjunction with the use of drugs that enhance its effect.
In the process of exposure to current, the active substances of drugs have the opportunity to penetrate directly into the lesions. The procedure does not produce serious side effects.
One of the modern methods of prostate treatment is laser therapy. In the process of its implementation, low-intensity infrared radiation is used, which has a beneficial effect on the condition of the skin in the perineal area.
Laser therapy helps speed up the recovery of affected tissues. In addition, it stimulates metabolic processes and strengthens the body's defenses.
