Acupuncture is effective for chronic prostatitis/chronic pelvic pain syndrome

Chronic prostatitis/chronic pelvic pain syndrome (CP/CPPS) presents as chronic pain in the region of the pelvis, and often associated to ejaculatory pain, urination pain lasting for at least 3 to 6 months. The benefits of acupuncture on CP/CPPS have been well established. How many sessions of treatments were required for this condition? A paper analysed existing data involved in ten studies of 329 participants. Overall, more acupuncture sessions received for CP/CPPS patients is associated with increased symptom relieving. After 6 sessions of treatments, the pain started to decrease; after 18 sessions of treatment significant improvement of pain was observed. The conclusion is that there is dose-response relationship between acupuncture sessions and CP/CPPS outcome. Prolonged acupuncture sessions were associated with less NIH-CPSI score. Six acupuncture sessions might be the minimal required 'dose' to reach its clinical effects.
