Re: CPPS: Positioning, telling, and performing a male illness

Note that the description of the NIH classification is completely incorrect. If recommendation number 1 is the future of medicine, I'm taking early retirement.

Re: Extracorporeal shock-wave therapy and CPPS

Thank you for this. Please excuse my extreme delay in replying. Usually when I am feeling ok, I try to stay off the forum and when I have a massive flair, then here I am again looking for answers. Is this basically the same concept? https://www.storzmedical.com/en/disciplines/urology/product-overvi...

Re: Low Intensity Shock Wave Therapy

My PA who is very athletic was having pain in the ball of her foot which I treated with our device and now the pain is gone. We are cautiously optimistic.

Low Intensity Shock Wave Therapy

Based on several reports from Europe we have been interested in trying the LiSWT device and finally have one. For our initial experience we are offering it in the context of open label studies. These are purely observational studies (no placebo or controls) that allow us to offer at no charge to pat...

Re: Opioids can prolong and worsen pain

Another rodent study getting overplayed by the science media. The rat immune system is so different from humans (unlike mouse which is closer) that studies like this can only be considered hypothesis generating.

AUA Panel on Orchialgia

Not a pure CPPS talk, but does touch on pelvic floor spasm and the common association between CPPS and testicular pain

Re: Sexual Guilt and CP/CPPS

Should have published it then. When we would talk with infectious disease MD's who had patients like this and we would quote our anecdotal experience, they would always ask "is there evidence for this, is it in the literature"? It does matter.

Re: Sexual Guilt and CP/CPPS

This was one I was NOT going to call Shoskes syndrome.

One of my female Urology colleagues says she sees this in the spouses after the husband admits he cheated. Symptoms of STD in the spouse without cultures or antibiotics helping

Re: Anaesthetic injection vs compression for trigger points

I've been doing trigger point injection (pelvic and abdominal) for the past year for patients who don't improve on PT with very good results so far.

Re: More to pelvic pain than an aching prostate

Strange article although I appreciate the (non-referenced) shout out to UPOINT. The final sentence is very bizarre so I had to look it up. The US didn't "pass legislation". The American Board of OBGYN changed rules for maintenance of board certification that allowed diplomates to see men as a propor...
