Prostatitis is a common disease in the reproductive and urinary tract of adult middle-aged and old men, especially in recent years, the prevalence of sexually transmitted diseases and irregular treatment lead to mycoplasma infection, chlamydia infection, gonorrhea urethritis and other retrograde infection of the prostate, which all lead to the multiple and high incidence of prostatitis.
In addition, repeated high-intensity use of antibiotics led to the increasing number of drug-resistant strains, which also made the prostate repeated and course prolonged. Therefore, many experts advocate physical therapy, such as microwave therapy, to speed up the discharge of inflammatory substances and relieve pain. What is the principle and harm of microwave therapy on prostatitis?
The principle of microwave therapy on chronic prostatitis is the warming effect. By adjusting the output power to preheat the probe, it acts on the prostate when the probe temperature is maintained at 41 ℃ ~ 43 ℃.
Thirty minutes of hyperthermia each time is maintained to increase the temperature of the prostate body adjacent to the rectum, expand the blood vessels, and speed up the blood operation, so as to directly kill the bacteria in the prostate body, improve the blood circulation in the prostate body, accelerate the discharge of metabolic products and toxins, and enhance the phagocytic function of white blood cells.
In this way, it can promote inflammation absorption, pus thrombus liquefaction, abscess regression, and scar softening. It can be used as an assistant treatment for patients with chronic nonbacterial prostatitis and no fertility requirements in a short period of time.
Hazard 1: It is not suitable for those with fertility requirements in the near future
The temperature of microwave therapy should be increased from 39 ℃ to 41 ℃ or 43 ℃, and it should be maintained between 41 ℃ ~ 43 ℃ for 30 minutes in the later stage. High-temperature treatment for 30 minutes each time has a certain influence on the testis, epididymis, and even vas deferens adjacent to the prostate.
As we all know, the testis is the organ that produces sperm, and epididymis promotes sperm maturation. Once the temperature is too high and lasts for a long time, it will not be conducive to the quantity and quality of sperm. Therefore, it is not suitable for prostatitis patients with fertility requirements in the near future.
Hazard 2: It may affect prostate function
Microwave therapy is generally applicable to chronic nonbacterial prostatitis patients, and each treatment time is at least 30 minutes, five times a week. This long-term, high-frequency microwave heating source treatment will lead to local capillary expansion, permeability enhancement, and affect the secretion function of the prostate.
What's more, it will lead to irreversible changes in the prostate, such as calcification and sclerosis, which will affect men's sexual life. Therefore, it is recommended not to try microwave therapy easily, especially for patients with poor economic conditions.
Microwave therapy can accelerate the elimination of inflammatory substances, which is conducive to the recovery; however, there is also harm, it is not recommended for patients with fertility requirements over a long period of time.
Therefore, patients can get rid of it through taking herbal medicine Diuretic and Anti-inflammatory Pill along with a warm sitz bath, it can also play a role in promoting the discharge of inflammatory substances, and it is also suitable for patients with fertility requirements.
