Cushions and Pillows for Prostatitis
Using Cushions and Pillows for Prostatitis
If your prostatitis causes discomfort when sitting, you can try using cushions and pillows for prostatitis pain. Prostatitis pain can sometimes be described as sitting on a golf or tennis ball. It can be very frustrating to have pain while sitting. You can’t be expected to stand all the time, so sitting on cushions and pillows can make you much more comfortable. Prolonged sitting can contribute to prostatitis, so you may want to evaluate the situations that make you sit for long periods of time and see where you can also take breaks and alternate with standing or other changes of position.
While there are donuts for people healing from pelvic injury, they can be more embarrassing and less comfortable than cushions designed to treat prostatitis. The cushions and pillows that are designed for prostatitis may have a depression where the prostate area would rest and can be taken with you to places where you might sit for long periods, like sports games, religious services, restaurants, flights, etc. Many fold up and have a handle for carrying.
How to Find Cushions and Pillows for Prostatitis
You can search online for prostatitis relief seats and cushions made specifically for relieving the pressure of prostaitits pain. Some seats are even designed to align and angle your spine to help with lower back pain as well.
While cushions and pillows for prostatitis can help relieve pain while sitting, they are not the only drug-free way to treat prostatitis pain. Other alternative pain relief strategies involve sitz baths, heat therapy, and applying ice packs to the prostate area.
There are many other natural and alternative treatments that can help relieve prostatitis symptoms. About half of the men with chronic prostatitis/chronic pelvic pain syndrome (CP/CPPS) have pain due to dysfunction of pelvic floor muscles. There are several different treatments that can help relieve this pelvic floor tension. Acupunture, biofeedback, physiotherapy, and trigger point release therapy all can help. Some men also benefit from stress-management techniques, because stress and anxiety contribute to pelvic tension as well. Incorporating natural treatments that involve dietary changes and treatment with supplements and probiotics can be very successful as well.
Treating prostatitis takes time. Use the cushions while you heal, but keep trying other types of treatment so that you can get to the point where you relieve your pain and no longer need them. A multimodal approach to CP/CPPS works best.
