Women's health is a branch of healthcare treating problems affecting the pelvic girdle.  It is very specialised because of the unique nature of the various problmes affecting the structures inside the pelvis, and the highly sensitive parameters for discussion relating to the bladder, bowel and sexual organs.


Prostatitis and CPPS

Chronic Prostatitis or Chronic Pelvic Pain Syndome (CPPS) are often considered Synonymous where pain in the pelvis is of a persistent nature and at Core Body Clinic in Reading, Berkshire we see a large number of men who have been suffering for a very long time.   In Prostatitis, there is often as an infection affecting the prostate gland.  However, only about 5-10% are actually bacteria related with the vast majority related to inflammation or non-specific pain syndromes. Prostatitis can affect all men at any age and accounts for about ¼ of all pelvic pain conditions, genital or urinary conditions in young to middle aged men.  Where pain persists after a period of time and after medicine has failed to resolve pain, CPPS or Chronic Prostatitis is a diagnosis assigned.
