A new study shows again that acupuncture is a powerful technique to reduce pain and inflammation in chronic pelvic pain syndrome (CP/CPPS). Chronic pelvic pain syndrome is a problem that not a lot of men like to speak about, Yet pelvic pain is a very common illness. I have helped hundreds of men with chronic pelvic pain in my acupuncture clinic over the last 15 years.
Acupuncture is a wonderful technique for treating CP/CPPS because it reduces pain, inflammation, and calms the nervous system in order to treat the whole person. A research study recently published in the Annals of Internal Medicine shows that acupuncture helped reduce pain in Chronic Pelvic Pain syndrome. There have been many studies in the past that showed acupuncture helped CP/CPPS. This study is exceptionally important because it is the largest study to date that showed acupuncture to be effective in this condition.
