Men, Do You Feel Like You’ve Been Kicked in the Groin?
Are you experiencing groin pain without a known injury? Do you have urinary hesitancy, urgency or frequency? Have you been diagnosed with prostatitis, and given antibiotics but achieved little to no relief?
You may have Category IIIB chronic prostatitis or chronic pelvic pain syndrome (CPPS).
Chronic prostatitis or CPPS are not caused by an infection or inflammation, and pain is not limited to the prostate. In fact, it may be caused by muscle guarding or tightness in the pelvic floor, abdominal or back muscles.
Other symptoms you may experience include reduced stream, returning to the toilet within 2 hours, or feeling like you are not fully emptying your bladder.
Is this affecting your quality of life? With a delay of diagnosis, you may be feeling depressed, anxiety or withdrawing from social activities.
Pelvic physical therapists have been specially trained in the musculoskeletal system of the pelvis, pelvic floor, abdominal and back muscles and may be able to provide relief.
