The drugs most often prescribed for treatment are broad spectrum drugs - penicillin.

Treatment of prostatitis through physical therapy involves the use of various methods, among which are ultrasound, laser therapy, electrical stimulation, magnetic therapy, microwave therapy, UHF, galvanized, electrophoresis, chemotherapy darsonvalization, microlysis therapy, baths, mud procedures.
Ultrasound is used as high frequency waves that a person cannot hear.
Laser therapy is a fairly common, almost painless method. It is the effect of the laser beam on diseased organ tissues or on the reflex regions.
Electric stimulation of prostatitis is the effect of electrical impulses that cause muscle contractions in an organ. Electrical stimulation is divided into the rectum, perineum, and urethra.
Magnetic therapy is a treatment for prostatitis by exposing it to alternating low frequency and continuous magnetic fields on the tissues of the affected organ.
Microwave therapy is the effect of high frequency electromagnetic fields on affected tissues.
UHF is a complex of treatments using capacitor plates that are supplied to tissues.
Plating is a treatment by providing a constant current and low voltage.
Drug electrophoresis is a simultaneous effect on the tissues of low-intensity direct current and special drugs are introduced into the tissue with the help of it. Electric current increases ionic activity in tissues, at the same time a pharmacological effect of the drug occurs.
Darsonvalization is a treatment that rapidly quenches high-frequency, low-power pulse currents with high voltages.
Medical Microclyster - douching device, used to infuse and use various decoctions.
Baths used to treat illness are indicated in general or sedentary in place. During the bath, different medicinal liquids with different temperatures are used.
The sludge process - use the healing sludge. Treatment may include using external sludge applications or inserting a mud gauze in the anus.

The bark, seeds, roots, shoots and rhizomes of a plant are often used as a decoction, as an infusion - flowers, leaves, grass, and stems. There are many recipes for drug preparation.
One of the most popular recipes is infusing birch buds and oats mixed with rose hip infusion (1: 1), drinking half a glass 1 or 2 times daily.
