Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine for the management of chronic prostatitis with chronic pelvic pain syndrome

In September 2013 a case report I authored was published in the peer-reviewed Journal of Chiropractic Medicine on the successful use of acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine to manage a case of chronic prostatitis with pelvic pain syndrome. This case report is an important contribution to the medical literature because it documents the use of a conservative treatment modality with no side effects to manage a chronic and incurable condition. The typical treatment to manage this condition is the long term use of pain killers.

The case report can be read in full here: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/24396319
