Are you experiencing pain or discomfort with urination, having bowel movements, or intercourse? Is it affecting your sex life? Have you tried all means of treatment but have not been able to obtain relief? Osteopathic Manipulative Treatment (OMT), the all-natural alternative, may be the answer for you.

Studies have shown:

  • OMT is effective in treating patients with chronic prostatitis/chronic pelvic pain syndrome (CPPS)

The prostate gland helps in making semen and lies below the bladder and around the urethra (tube carrying urine out of the body) in men. Inflammation of the prostate gland is known as prostatitis. The enlarged prostate gland presses against the urethra, causing infection, pain and urinary problems. When symptoms last for more than three months, the condition is called chronic prostatitis, and usually affects men between 30 to 50 years of age.

What is the difference between licensing and board certification for a physician, and do you have any of these?

Physicians are required to be licensed to practice medicine in the U.S. by the licensing board in each state they wish to practice.

A board certified physician has completed an additional training program in a specialty and has passed a rigorous exam to assess his or her knowledge, skills and experience to provide quality patient care in that specialty.

In my case, I am licensed to practice medicine in Texas, and I have two board certifications. The first one is Family Medicine and the second one is Neuromusculoskeletal Medicine/Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine.
