About half of the chronic prostatitis/chronic pelvic pain syndrome (CP/CPPS) patients have pain related to pelvic floor muscle disorders, weaknesses, and tension. Sometimes trigger points form in the muscles. Trigger points are painful and tight areas of muscles that are stressed or injured. There are therapies that involve applying pressure to these points to release the tension. Some of these muscles can only be reached internally, and for these sometimes a wand is more effective or preferable to using a finger.
Several different healing programs may train you how to use these devices so you can continue treatment at home. The Wise-Anderson Protocol, the “NPAT” Treatment Program for Prostatitis, the Renew XY Health Program for Men, and intrapelvic physiotherapy may all involve trigger point release methods that can incorporate wands such as internal trigger point wands, crystal wands, and TheraWands.
