    David, 

    most of us have a slight inequality in the length of our legs. We are talking milimeters or fractiuons thereof. 

    Prostatitis is very hard to treat and clear up, stick with your urologist dont throw money away on possibly uneeded treatments

    Prostatitis is an infection of the prostate and can't be cured by back ajustments. It is possible that you have back pain from an injury. I have three disks in my back that are degrading rapidly and now I have a bone on bone situation that causes me pain. Eventhough, I still have pain caused by my prostate. My uro thought I had a prostate infection, but I took Cipro for almost two months and it didn't get better, so I asked her what on earth is causing this. She said that I probably have BPH. She said if my PSA is high she will want to do a biopsy on me and I told her I wasn't going to have one. I had the PSA test done and it came back at .24 and I can tell you both myself and my uro were suprised at this low of a PSA. I have BPH, but a really low PSA, so she is no longer worried about Prostate cancer, you are pretty young, but you may want to get your PSA checked, because back pain is a sign of PC. But finish the antibiotics first.

      It's extremely difficult for a urologist to make a differential diagnosis between chronic, non-bacterial prostatitis and BPH because the symptoms are nearly identical.  Just did a fast search on "symptoms of prostatitis," which are as follows: dribbling after urination, excessive urination at night, frequent urge to urinate, frequent urination, urinary retention, or blood in urine.

      Now look at a comparison for "symptoms of BPH," which are as follows: dribbling after urination, excessive urination at night, frequent urination, sense of incomplete bladder emptying, urge to urinate and leaking, or weak urinary stream.

      Almost seems like a coin toss, doesn't it?

      The finger test doesn't detect PC very well. My Uro did that to me and boy did I scream in pain. My Prostate hurt like hell. I still have issues 9 months latter, even after a month on Cipro. I think in my case I have BPH, because my PSA was super low at a mere .24. After the antibiotics you should have a PSA test. Make sure you give it some time for your prostate to recover. If your PSA is high, then you may have a problem that needs attention. I am 48 years old and I didn't get your age, that can make a difference as to whether you are in a risk group for PC or not. Either way I hope you get better soon. I know what you are going through as I am still having trouble 8 months latter.
