Treatment for non-bacterial chronic prostatitis would depend on the symptoms that the man is bothered with.
We usually divide these symptoms into the acronym UPOINT.
Treatment options range from medical treatment including:
The most recent treatment would be the use of low-intensity extracorporeal shockwave treatment (LiESWT) for this condition. This procedure is done in the outpatient clinic settings and would need up to 6 sessions per treatment cycle.
Non-bacterial chronic prostatitis is not an easy condition to treat and different men will benefit from different treatment modalities and even a combination of many of the above-mentioned treatments.
Before a man is deemed to have non-bacterial chronic prostatitis, he would have to be evaluated appropriately before the best treatment can be tailored for him.
