Summary of "Alternative Therapies for the Treatment of Chronic Prostatitis."

Chronic prostatitis/chronic pelvic pain syndrome (CP/CPPS) is a prevalent disease for which there is no standardized therapy. Traditional treatments have included antibiotics, α-blockers, and anti-inflammatories, but those have not proven to be efficacious therapies through many clinical trials. Alternative therapies, such as phytotherapy, acupuncture, and pelvic floor physical therapy, have grown in popularity for the treatment of CP/CPPS. As clinicians continue to explore these alternative therapies, there is an accumulation of strong evidence demonstrating the success of these alternative therapies.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Therapeutic practices which are not currently considered an integral part of conventional allopathic medical practice. They may lack biomedical explanations but as they become better researched some (PHYSICAL THERAPY MODALITIES; DIET; ACUPUNCTURE) become widely accepted whereas others (humors, radium therapy) quietly fade away, yet are important historical footnotes. Therapies are termed as Complementary when used in addition to conventional treatments and as Alternative when used instead of conventional treatment.
