I've had Chronic Prostatitis and recovered from it. My journey was long and hellish. What I am going to pass on has been earn't in blood and tears.
Chronic Prostatitis is caused by muscular dysfunction in the pelvis. The thing that causes this muscular dysfunction is sacro-iliac joint dysfunction. This is a mis-alignement of the bones of the pelvis.
At sometime in your life, probably 10-20 years ago, you fell or banged your bum/lower back. This force was enough to slightly shift the sacro-iliac joints out of alignment.
Once the sacro-iliac joint is not functioning properly, the muscles that surround the joint become tense to try to hold the disordered joint in place. The pelvis becomes twisted. This is not something that will commonly show up on an MRI.
This twist travels throughout your spine and will affect you from your feet to your toes.
Within the Pelvis, there is a Sacral nerve called the Pudendal nerve. This nerve innerverates the anal sphincter, bladder neck and sexual organs. As the pelvis muscles are tight, they squeeze on the Pudendal nerve, causing it to send 'disturbed' signals to the organs it services. Your bum will be tight, your bladder neck will be unstable and you make have sexual function problems. As the pelvis is tilted and twisted, the pudendal nerve also now has to pass through a slightly different path, this also can stretch or squeeze the nerve.
With a disordered bladder neck, urine will spurt into the Prostate causing it to be inflamed.
SO HOW DO I FIX IT?
You need to find an EXCELLENT Osteopath or Chiropractor. Ask around friends and family for someone they recommend. You need to be checked for any form of spinal misalignment. You pelvis should be checked for any twist or tilting. This can then be corrected over weeks or even months of treatment.
As the pelvis re-aligns, the pudendal nerve will be released, the bladder neck will then calm down and so the Prostate will work normally.
Good luck guys. Been there. Learn't this the hard way.
