Which device is best for treating prostatitis and prostate adenoma?

A physiotherapeutic device for the treatment of prostatitis is selected by the attending physician

For the complex treatment of prostate problems, various physiotherapeutic techniques are used, the effectiveness of which is based on the effect on the prostate: ultrasound, magnetic field, light, vibration.

The devices used are constantly improved, which opens up new possibilities for their use. Devices for the treatment of prostatitis and prostatic adenoma are intended for home and professional use in medical institutions.

Is it possible to cure the prostate using the device?

Prostate diseases and problems do not appear suddenly. The disorders develop over a long period of time, after which they begin to manifest themselves symptomatically. Complications are found in a number of problems and malfunctions of the genitourinary system:

  1. Erectile dysfunction.
  2. Problems with urination and bowel movements.
  3. Pain syndrome.
  4. Infertility.
  5. Extensive congestion in the pelvic area.

Treatment without drugs with physiotherapeutic techniques alone will not bring a long-term positive effect. To combat the disease, effective drug therapy is required.

On the other hand, this is unlikely to be possible even without physiotherapeutic procedures. Congestion and associated disorders reduce the effectiveness of drug therapy. After the patient recovers, it is also mandatory to undergo physical therapy to prevent relapse.

If you consider how much a session costs, it becomes clear why medical devices for treating prostate adenoma at home are so popular.

The main effect of the devices, regardless of the principle of their operation, is associated with the stimulation of glandular tissues and blood vessels. The most modern devices are also used effectively in the treatment of chronic prostatitis and facilitate well-being even in the advanced stages of prostatic adenoma.

Some equipment is multifunctional and combines several methods of influence. It has an anti-inflammatory, healing and blood flow-improving effect.

Devices for the treatment of prostatitis at home are effective as preventive and auxiliary therapy. With regular use, a preventive effect on the prostate is achieved, preventing the onset of inflammatory processes and tissue proliferation (with adenoma).

What are the limits of hardware therapy for the prostate?

If you examine the negative reviews regarding the use of home physiotherapy equipment, you can identify several disadvantages and limitations. Typically, dissatisfaction is associated with the following complaints:

  • The appearance of pain: hardware therapy is strictly contraindicated during periods of exacerbation of the disease. Pain syndrome is a direct consequence of failure to comply with this restriction.
  • Lack of results: Treatment of chronic inflammatory diseases of the prostate requires complex therapy. Physical therapy, medications and physiotherapy are combined.
    In the absence of one of the components, the effectiveness of therapy is drastically reduced. But complex treatment of prostatitis using the device accelerates the patient's recovery after the disease by 30% and reduces the likelihood of recurrence by 40%.

Reviews of use help to draw a conclusion about the advisability of long-term therapy. The effect becomes noticeable after 5-6 sessions.

Another limitation, which can be learned from independent reviews, is the development of any form of cancer. Exposure to ultrasound, vibration, heat and electrical stimulation causes accelerated growth of cancer cells.

Buying a prostate treatment device is quite profitable. For a physiotherapy session at the medical center they charge from 3 to 10 dollars, depending on the technique. An appliance will cost $50-160.

Types of prostate devices by type of effect

Hardware treatment of prostatitis is associated with several effects on the prostate gland and surrounding vessels and tissues. It is customary to classify used devices into several groups based on the type of impact and the principle of operation.

Urological devices for the treatment and prevention of prostatitis mainly stabilize blood circulation and nutrition of glandular tissues. During the impact on the prostate, its activity is normalized: the production of seminal fluid and the ability to absorb and process testosterone.

Devices for the treatment of prostate adenoma, on the contrary, inhibit the functions of the prostate more, causing it to decrease in size. There are universal devices that can be used with the same effect for prostatitis and benign hyperplasia.

In addition to the division by type of impact, the existing classification divides devices into two types:

  1. transrectal— have a special sensor to insert into the rectum.
  2. minimally invasive- act through the skin of the abdominal cavity.

Another division of physiotherapy devices is related to their manufacturer. The consumer is offered imported devices and domestic analogues. The difference lies not only in the country of origin, but also in the type of exposure. Thus, the Israeli device for the treatment of prostatitis has a thermal effect on the prostate tissue caused by a change in radiofrequency waves. The home device is based on the use of magnetic fields together with vacuum stimulation.

To choose which prostate treatment device is better, it is necessary to study the principle of its operation and the manufacturers' instructions regarding the healing effect. It would be a good idea to consult an experienced physical therapist.

Reviews of Israeli devices show that their efficiency is not much superior to the characteristics that distinguish domestic analogues. The effectiveness of therapy is more related to the correct choice of hardware treatment based on the principle of its effect.

Transrectal action

Home medical devices and home prostate treatment devices are divided into transrectal and non-invasive applications.

The former are more effective in therapy. The main difference is that the devices are equipped with rectal sensors that are inserted into the rectum through the anus. The head of the device is practically in contact with the prostate gland.

The effectiveness of the therapy is linked to the anatomical characteristics. The rectal apparatus can act directly on the prostate; the intensity of the effect is not reduced by natural barriers: the abdominal cavity and surrounding tissues.

Transrectal devices should not be used for the following violations:

  • Hemorrhoids.
  • Proctitis.
  • Cracks in the anus.
  • Ulcers in the rectum.

In the final stages of prostatic adenoma the insertion of a transrectal sensor will be difficult. In other cases, the use of devices of this type is completely justified.

Non-invasive use

The difference between this type of devices is due to the fact that the prostate influence sensor is placed over the skin, without inserting it into the rectum. The devices are intended for those patients who have health-related limitations: diseases and inflammation of the rectum, especially in the acute phase.

Despite their lower efficiency, non-invasive devices also show good results in the treatment of chronic prostatitis and prostatic adenoma: they alleviate the symptoms of the diseases and relieve pain. The equipment is used in case of contraindications to transrectal physiotherapy techniques.

Operating principles of prostate treatment devices

There are 6 main directions or methods of influence. Devices used in urology for the treatment of prostatitis and hyperplasia are divided into the following groups:

  • Electrostimulant.
  • Vibration stimulators.
  • Equipment with antiparasitic effects.
  • Devices that use changes in the frequency of a magnetic field.
  • Ultrasonic.
  • Laser therapy devices.

To treat chronic prostatitis, devices are used to improve blood supply and metabolism in the glandular tissues. Ultrasound, electrical stimulation devices and devices with an antiparasitic effect are ideal for this purpose.

Hardware treatment methods for adenoma are aimed at reducing the volume of glandular tissue. A similar effect is achieved with magnetotherapy and laser treatment.

Professional devices used in physiotherapy often combine several types of effects. Recently, household equipment is also distinguished by its multifunctionality.

The rating includes foreign devices and domestic analogues that managed to prove themselves from the best side. Special mention deserves the unique equipment: the device was the first to combine the effect of a non-invasive magnetic field with variable frequency and the effect of vacuum.

Modern treatment of prostatitis cannot do without physiotherapeutic techniques. To consolidate the effect of drug therapy for hyperplasia, the use of devices with therapeutic effect on glandular tissue is necessary.

When choosing equipment for home use, one cannot do without consulting a competent urologist and physiotherapist. Specialists will select a device with the necessary technical characteristics.

You should pay special attention when choosing innovative devices. You should only purchase certified devices. The quality symbol indicates that the device has been certified and approved for use in domestic conditions.

Electrical stimulation devices

The positive effect obtained from the operation of the devices is based on the effect of low-frequency electric current on the damaged areas of the gland. The result is obtained by stimulating the nerve endings. Electrical devices are absolutely harmless and have a healing effect even in the advanced stages of prostatitis.

The principle of operation of the devices is closely related to the stimulation of metabolic processes in damaged prostate tissues. Exposure to dynamic currents alleviates the patient's condition. After the first sessions the following changes are observed:

  • The pain syndrome is relieved.
  • Power is restored.
  • Makes urination easier.

Electrostimulation devices are effective for prostatitis, but for adenoma, especially in an advanced stage, it is better not to use them.

Vibration stimulators

Disturbances in the functioning of the prostate gland often occur against the background of stagnation due to irregular sex, sedentary work and a sedentary lifestyle. Devices for the treatment of prostatitis work as a kind of massagers that have a mechanical effect on the tissue of the prostate gland. Prostate massage stimulates its work and eliminates congestion.

There are vibration therapy devices that combine mechanical action with infrared heat, as well as the healing effect of a magnetic field. During the session a double effect is obtained. The heat from infrared devices helps deal with congestion. Massage eliminates infectious exudate from the gland cavity.

The cost of the devices is relatively low, which explains their high popularity in the domestic market.

With antiparasitic effects

To eliminate inflammatory processes in the genitourinary system, it is necessary to eliminate the catalyst of disorders. Often the source of the problem is infections and pathogenic microorganisms, fungi.

Complex devices with antiparasitic effects use the principle of bioresonance: waves with a frequency at which most microorganisms die.

The use of the devices does not cancel antibacterial therapy, but is successfully used as an addition to classical drug treatment.

Magnetotherapy devices

The beneficial effects of a magnetic field on the human body have been clinically proven and have long been beyond doubt. Modern devices use frequency resonance waves. There is a further complex effect on the prostate.

Multifunctional devices differ in their principle of operation:

  • With a vibromagnetic laser head you combine several types of effects at the same time: laser therapy, prostate massage and the use of magnetic therapy.
  • Vacuum devices: The main influence remains the magnetic field. The creation of the vacuum has an effect similar to tissue massage, but has no mechanical effect.

Changing the frequency of the magnetic field leads to heating of the prostate. Thermotherapy is particularly useful for prostatic adenoma, but can also be used in cases of chronic prostatitis.

Exposure to ultrasound

As the reviews show, in terms of effectiveness and convenience, these are the best devices for treating prostatitis at home. The devices are compact and can be easily carried in a small travel bag.

The operating principle is based on microwave thermotherapy. Ultrasound affects tissues, heating them slightly.

Bioresonance vibrations stimulate cells and nerve endings. Physiotherapists recommend installing ultrasound sensors on the biologically active points responsible for the functioning of the prostate, as well as directly on the groin area.

Laser therapy devices

Laser devices are used in quantum therapy for prostate diseases. The sensor is positioned rectally to the position of the prostate.

Home portable devices do not have the same power as professional devices, but they have a sufficient effect for prevention and therapy.

Laser devices for the treatment of prostatitis stabilize the patient's condition: they reduce pain during sexual intercourse and urination and normalize the functions of the prostate gland. With prolonged exposure, stagnation is eliminated.

A therapeutic laser device with a rectal attachment should not be used in case of acute inflammatory processes in the rectum, as well as in diseases associated with a violation of the integrity of the mucosa.

Physiotherapeutic techniques are selected exclusively by the attending physician. Self-medication is dangerous!
