Acupuncture NYC Treatment for Chronic Pelvic Disorders

without comments

Chronic pelvic disorders are frequently misdiagnosed and mistreated.  Whenever this happens, the patient loses an opportunity that would help hem/her in the treatment not only of the painful conditions but the underlying cause of the problem itself.

More often than not, proctitis is the cause of pain in the pelvis.  Proctitis means inflammation of the anus or rectum, more specifically, swelling of the rectal lining or rectal mucosa.  This disorder can stem from various causes and is classified as either chronic or acute in nature.  One common cause of proctitis is it is a side effect of drugs, most likely antibiotic drugs.  Proctitis can be linked to causes that irritate and inflame the small intestine or colon; herpes; yeast infections; hemorrhoids; Crohn’s disease or ulcerative colitis as well as other factors such as cholecystitis, chronic pancreatitis, allergies, bacterial infection or rectal injury to name a few.

Chronic pelvic disorder is associated with symptoms such as constipation, stomach uneasiness after eating, indigestion, gas, bloating, abdominal pain, anal itching or rectal pain.

There is a high correlation of chronic pelvic disorder with the occupation of driving.  Inordinate cases of chronic pelvic disorder where seen in drivers of taxis, limos, buses or trucks.  Many physicians suspect that rectal traumatic injury due to prolonged seating in the same typical position plus the constant irritation of the anal area due to bumps in the road have lead to neurological problems in the anal area.  This daily experience may lead to chronic pelvic pain syndrome, interstitial cystitis, painful bladder syndrome, prostatodynia, or prostatitis.  These conditions have some common symptoms:  urinary pain, urgency and frequency.

Unfortunately, Western medicine does not have any answers that can cure or at least manage these pelvic disorders.  Neither pharmaceutical medications treatment nor rectal or pelvic surgery, which is very costly have proven to be effective remedies for these problems.  What are the options of the 10 to 15 million sufferers of pelvic disorders in the United States then?  These disorders can be debilitating and usually become worse when left untreated for a long time.  It is so unlikely that an effective treatment for these pelvic problems such as chronic prostatitis, interstitial cystitis or chronic pelvic syndrome treatment can be found in the arcane treatment of acupuncture.  Acupuncture NYC has been proven to effectively treat inflammation, acute or chronic, of the pelvis.  It is a great and effective treatment of the three aforementioned pelvic disorders.

The use of Chinese herbal medicine is also combined with acupuncture treatment for chronic prostatitis, interstitial cystitis or chronic pelvic syndrome often delivering excellent results after several treatment sessions.  Acupuncture and herbal medicine treatment addresses the cause of the symptoms and relies on the body’s own healing mechanisms to heal the injury of the pelvic region.
