Why do we also need to check the jaw? It has nothing to do with the spine....

TMJ (Jaw) tension can cause feelings of aggression, tension, tinnitus, emotional outbursts, etc.

Interesting. I want to find a doctor to look it up. But I'm a student and don't have a job. Is there any other way I can get away with it?

I guess you are going to have to read a lot.

Any competent Chiropractor will tell you the jaw, atlas and pelvis are linked.

Okay, time for another update. I had my first, pudendal nerve injection on 06/11/2013. There will be a series of three spaced 5-6 weeks apart. I have noticed a significant reduction in my symptoms. Ther was actually a full week that I felt normal. It was strange because it has been a full year since I was normal.

My follow up with my Urologist was on 06/24/2013. He did another DRE and stated he could notice significant improve not in the reduction of tension in my pelvic muscles. He also stated that I have been having a more positive reaction to the first injection than most of his patients.

I'm taking

Hello All-

Time for another update. I have been in physical therapy for CPPS for 20 weeks now, seeing a chiropractor on a regular basis, and had my second pudendal nerve injection 1-1/2 weeks ago. I take Gabapentin 600mgs daily and Amitriptaline 50mgs daily. I am pain free. At least for the moment. I go weeks without any pain. My primary pains were burning at the tip of the penis and pain in the coccyx. My erections are strong and I no longer have premature ejaculations.

I am scheduled for my third and last pudendal nerve injection on August 20th. I debating not having it. The only time I have had pain was a couple of days after the 2nd injections which consited of burining after urination or ejaculation which would subside with 30 minutes to 3 hours.

Wishing all the best of luck.

Great news Rich!

Keep learning

Sounds like your Sacro-Iliac Joint is still going out and your pelvis is still twisted.

Ok, some more info!

And it's good too.

One of the contributory factors in my Pelvic Pain is an old Arthritic joint in my left foot.

Whilst it hasn't hurt for nearly 10 years, my body has shifted my weight to the outside of my foot to take the pressure off it.

This causes the foot to over pronate and roll inwards.

This then engages the stabilising muscles. My ankle, my knee, my IT Band, my glutes, my hip flexors...and my Piraformis! One of the major contributors to pelvic pain.

When my hip flexors get tight they twist my pelvis and throw my left hip forward. This engages the pelvic floor and sets up the symptoms of Prostatitis/Pelvic Pain Syndrome.

I'm off to ProFeet in Putney, London to get some tests done and some orthotics fitted.

Now all this pain has come from a old problem which didn't even hurt. Amazing...and frustrating.

But this should be the final piece which gets me back to full fitness!

Fingers crossed.

Don't forget to get your toes/feet checked when looking at Biomechanics.

A good Podiatrist will do that for you.

Another update. In week 22 of pysical therapy for CPPS and 2 pudendal nerve injections. I now spend more time being pain free than in pain. Occasional discomfort after urination or ejaculation. But that is less frequent than after the first injection.

Anxiety level in considerably reduce....but not a big surprise, I'm in less pain....kind of a no brainer there. I will have the third injection simply to ease my mind.

Crazy how this all started after a sexual encounter (male to female). It was denfinantly hard to except that it was not an infection. However I'm thankful that I did my due dillagence and researched other possibilities.

I denfinantly have an "A" type personality and place my tension in my pelvis.

Richard

I feel that I am experiencing the same as you. Temendous Anxiety and Guilt and Fear after a sexual encounter. My timelines are a little different, but the symptoms the same, from the burning thights, buttocks and groin, to the pain and burning in the urethra and tip of penis. Even my glans is red and irritated and the sandpaper feeling never goes away. Even the awful spasms or vibrations in my urethra drive me up the wall. This has been going on for 11 months now with varying degrees of severity.

I have had the urine test, the blood test an nothing found. I am now 'hoping' it is CPPS from my extreme anxiety, and extreme it was. I have never been that wound up before. I had seen three different psychologists, a psychiatrist and multiple different meds all to literally sedate me and get me back to normal. Even now I have to remind my self to relax and that includes my muscles.

I was and still am convinced of STDs even though nothing shows up. I am trying to find a PT that knows CPPS. I also have my copy of 'A Headache In the Pelvis Coming'. There are a few posters on here that seem to have similar sex/stress stories and even more on Med Help where I frequent quite often looking for answers.

I've had my orthotics in my shoes for nearly a week now and my spine is now straight!

Three years of absolute hell and now it's fixed.

One of my toes didn't bend which caused the foot to roll over and pronate. This led to glute muscle tension and hip flexor tension which twisted my pelvis.

Which led to Prostatis.

But now I'm better!!

Keep going guys. This was the fight of my life but I got there in the end.

Post Re: An Explanation and Cure for a common cause of CPPS
For awhile, I thought I was overthinking when I believed my prostatitis was the result of muscular issues. However, I recently noticed a pattern where my pain would almost completely subside if I remained passive and didn't do anything involving the pelvis/hips essentially.

Naturally, that led me to a quality chiropractor, who in turn referred me to a deep tissue massage practitioner. Both of them immediately pointed out how the right side of my pelvis was twisted and my shoulders were not even. Additionally one leg goes out further than the other. All the muscles in that area are extremely tense, so I'm working on getting deep tissue massages. I really hope I'm on the right track. Thanks for the help.

richard how many times a week do you do pt. i have been trying it twice a week. i assume they go inside anal area and try to relieve tension on muscles. do u feel the pain being replicated when they touch a certain muscle?

also , what made them try the pudental nerve injections?

Hi guys,

Hope everyone is a little better since I was last on here.

I wanted to give some more information on what caused my Prostatitis/CPPS.

So! The origin of the issue is an arthritic 2nd toe on my left foot.

The toe will not bend upwards (dorsiflexion) high enough for me to walk properly.

Because the foot is no longer able to roll through the walking motion correctly, the hip flexor muscles become activated and help. They realise I'm under powered through my left leg and try to pull the leg along.

Over time the left hip flexor muscle gets tight and short and pulls my pelvis forward and rotates it too.

This causes lumbar disk issues and tension in the pelvic muscles which causes Prostatitits.

It took 3 years of constant, obsessional work to uncover this. I visited hundreds of specialists and even fell out with friends and family.

Never give up, be systematic, investigate every lead.

Good luck

Thanks for checking in Dave. One question, would you recommend seeing a osteopath in addition to a chiropractor?

I think they can both help but it comes down more to the quality of the person.

The key is to find the ORIGIN of the problem. It's no good just clicking the body back into alignment if there's a physical problem causing it to go out. In my case, the left toe.

I would obviously now add a Podiatrist to the list of people to consult. I went to a place called Profeet in Putney, London. They film you walking on a treadmill and also do pressure tests to see where you place your weight when you walk. The podiatrist should be a biomechanics expertly.

Bear in mind I had seen 5 podiatrists over the last 5 years, none of which bothered to do these tests and none who looked at the way I walk. They just looked at my feet and gave me an insole which didn't solve the problem.

Toe/feet problems absolutely can lead to pelvic pain.

Hey David88, I'm looking for some insight since you're knowledgeable:

I've been doing a deep tissue massage for about 3 weeks now. I'm not really noticing much improvement overall, even though I do sometimes get a response (both positive and negative) from the massages. They said I have a twisted pelvis, one leg goes out furhter than the other, etc. I feel like I'm onto something, but just not approaching it the right way.

I've noticed weird things like tingling feet, pain in glutes, and my lower back gets painful and numb after standing for a longer period of time (e.g. a concert). I'm only 23! I've also noticed if I'm sitting down and lean forward during a flareup, I get this sort of shooting sore muscle pain in my lower leg/heel area. This all sounds ridiculous and weird, but I was wondering if it is at all connected.

Thanks

Yes, all connected.somehow your pelvis I'd twisted which means one of your hip flexors is tight. Hip flexors get tight because you have dysfunction somewhere else in your bio mechanical system.

You could have toe/feet issues, ankle issues, a Sacro-Iliac dysfunction, etc.

The tingling in your feet could be from the l5s1 disk touching the sciatic nerve. Or msybe even the Piraformis muscle touching the sciatic nerve.

Trace all your injuries on a sheet of paper contains a diagram of the human body. Take it to podiatrißts, osteopaths, chiropractors and see what they say.

If you post it here, I can help.

Post Re: An Explanation and Cure for a common cause of CPPS
Just want to bump this post up due to its usefulness. In my opinion Id go to an osteopath rather than a chiropractor due to them specialising in a wider area. My hip flexors aka psoas muscles are really tender in addition to my right glute area and lower back. Trigger point release is currently really painful which Im hoping is the missing piece of the puzzle for me. As Dave states, try and find these specialists via recommendations etc.

Post Re: An Explanation and Cure for a common cause of CPPS
Some more info guys.

My issue all came from an athritic 2nd toe on my left foot.

A lack of flexibility even in this small part of the body slowly rippled up and twisted my pelvis.

The body will compensate for lack of proper motion through any joint in the body but altering your bio mechanics.

In my case it was walking on the outside of my foot so that I didn't overly stress the joint. Not anything I was aware of mind you.

This issue in the foot meant my calf muscle was being overworked to stabilise a foot which was no longer working properly. The muscle built up more and more knots (muscle scar tissue) which eventually stopped me being able to properly fully flex my leg when I was walking. I started to lift my foot early at the end of my stride on the left side which caused my hip to compensate and help me generate forward momentum. This slowly caused my hip flexor to tighten and twisted my pelvis. It also rocked my pelvis forward into an anterior tilt which then caused my pelvic floor to tighten as a support to my faulty biomechanics....which caused prostatitis.

The pelvic tilt and twist went up to my neck and jaw causing depression, anxiety, tension etc.

If you have any joint in your body which has restricted mobility then it's possible it will cause problems in lots of other places.

Deep tissue massage was needed in virtually every muscle in my body to get rid of the old knotted muscle tissue, get the blood flowing and get the muscle loose and healthy.

David:

I recently tried massage therapy, which seems to have helped a little bit and improved my posture drastically. I still wasn't quite satisfied, and ended up getting an MRI. The results indicated a bulging disc (precursor to a herniated disc they said) in my lower back, and the Doctor suggested that could be causing my symptoms. Do you think it's plausible that this disc is pressing on some nerve, causing symptoms? I get all kinds of back pain from standing for long periods of time, my symptoms seem to only occur from certain motions and almost go away when I"m passive, and all my symptoms started immediately after a jog about a year ago. I also did weight lifting with questionable technique around that time.

Just wondering if I'm finally onto something concrete,

Thanks

1. Massage Therapy - There is massage therapy and then there is MASSAGE THERAPY. You are looking for a master. Muscle scar tissue could be buried deep down under lots of surface layer muscles so you need someone with the knowledge and skill to access and change the quality of that type of muscle. Tui Na using tools (small wooden or bone tools) has helped regenerate my muscle tissue. It is painful and has often left me with bruises. But it's the only way to correct the muscle tissue. I've just had some work around the back of my left knee where the calf muscle meets the hamstring and it's helped reduce the twist in my pelvis. If your leg is not extending properly when you walk it was cause pelvic problems. Everything is related!

2. I don't think it's causing your Prostatitis but I would need to know what joint in your back it's at. L3/4 could affect your bladder and erections but usually pelvic pain comes from tight pelvic muscles.

I'd suggest the disk bulge is a result of a twisted pelvis which is putting pressure on one side of the disk causing it to bulge out. The same twisted pelvis is probably causing your Sacroiliac Joints to be out of place and also it's pulling your pelvis into an anterior tilt which engages the pelvic floor.

You need to look at your body and decide why it might be twisted. Do you have any joints that aren't 100% mobile? Broken bones? Ligament problems? Toe issues? Etc.

Any problem below the pelvis can travel up and cause the symptoms you have.
