Repetitive Prostate Drainage & Prostate Massage

Repetitive Prostate Drainage (RPD), or Prostate Massage, by itself or combined with antibiotic therapy is one approach for he treatment of Chronic Prostatitis used by a number of physicians.  The microscopic picture of the enlarged, inflamed prostate supports the rational behind this procedure. In chronic prostatitis, the enlarged prostate will have numerous pockets of bacteria surrounded by scar tissue and occasional calcification.  The massage treatment uses manipulation to drain pockets of painful secretions that have been isolated in the prostate and are thought to be the reason for recurring inflammation. RPD helps Chronic Prostatitis patients by expressing built up secretions that congest the prostate and block the body’s immune cells and/or antibiotics from reaching the bacteria causing the infection. The treatment can be performed daily in conjunction with oral antibiotics. RPD, without effective antibiotics in the system is probably counterproductive. There is a chance for spreading the bacteria within the prostate  Prostate health is vital for optimum sexual health in men.  

The prostate is in the center of a man’s sexual performance.

The belief, that modern lifestyle, unhealthy eating habits, continuous sitting, and the constant pressure of sexually performing are the main contributing factors to prostate diseases are so far from reality that they do not merit discussions.  I am not aware of other causes behind prostate problems beside infections.  Infections can be acquired either from parents, vertically, during intrauterine life and during birth, or through sexual intercourse, horizontally, after puberty.  Experiencing pain in the prostate, prostatitis, erectile dysfunction and impotence are all symptoms that follow an infection.

Benign Prostatic Hypertrophy (BPH) and Cancer of the prostate are late sequels of the initial inflammatory process that will need many decades to develop.  Prostate Massage as the secret to men’s sexual health is an often-encountered slogan on numerous web sites promoting self-massage techniques or instruments designed for performing at home massage therapy.

While massages, temporarily, improve pelvic feelings, a sense of less congestion and often reduced pain or discomfort followed by heightened sexual feelings, they do not change the underlying pathology, the inflammation that caused the congestion, the pain and the swelling.  As a rule, the benefits of a massage therapy will dissipate within days. As soon as the diseased prostate fills up with congested pooling of infected secretion, the local discomfort and sexual disturbance return.

Self-massage, manual or instrumental can have detrimental effects on the health of the individual.  Vigorous massage with an instrument can lead to tear in the rectal wall, the sphincter muscle or can aggravate hemorrhoids.  For the long run, massage therapy, by virtue of ignoring the underlying infectious pathology will allow the process to continue and all original prostate related problems to progress. Our approach, instead, centers on intra-prostatic injection of antibiotics.
