Pudendal nerve entrapment

I suffered from chronic prostatitis for many years and went through all the usual treatments with no effect at all. Then I happened to run across an article by Dr. Stanley J. Antolak, Department of Urology, Mayo Clinic. I am now convinced that my disease was biomechanical in nature and not organic. I have been pain free for a while now and I suggest that others may benefit from the simple, free, treatment advocated by Dr. Antolak. The highlights of his article are:

1) Ninety percent of men with prostatitis are considered to have Category III, non-bacterial prostatitis.
2) Pudendal nerve entrapment (PNE) is frequently identified as the basis for the symptoms of "prostatitis."
3) Treatment consists, foremost, of perineal hyper-protection. Punctilious avoidance of sitting and cycling and use of special seating pads, which spare the perineum from pressure, is often curative. I hope this information will prove useful to other sufferers.
