About 10% of males in the US experience some form of pelvic pain. Nonbacterial Prostatitis tends to be one of the most common diagnoses. However, many men are seen by multiple urologists, receive extensive medical work up, find that none of the medications works, and end up feeling helpless. When they are finally seen by a pelvic specialist, they can begin to have the confidence they need to regain control of their life.
Dr. T. R. Christian Reutter from Pelvic Rehabilitation, explains to us why seeing a pelvic pain specialist should be the first line of defense in the absence of bacterial/viral infection. Other than being set up with pelvic floor physical therapy, specific medications, trigger point injections, peripheral nerve hydrodissection injections, and other minimally invasive procedures can help men who experience pelvic pain.
Dr. Reutter attended medical school at the University of Health Sciences College of Osteopathic Medicine in Kansas City Missouri and then completed his residency in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation at the University of Texas Health Science Center in San Antonio, Texas. He practiced for almost 17 years as a sports medicine and spine specialist in San Francisco, California before joining the Pelvic Rehabilitation Medicine team in New York.
He took an interest in pelvic pain and realized that there were limited resources with regard to addressing pelvic pain conditions. He joined the Pelvic Rehabilitation Medicine Team in order to further pursue his interests. As a physiatrist, he feels that he brings a unique approach to patient care with the goal of pain reduction/resolution, improvement in the quality of life, and allowing the patient to return to the activities that they enjoy.
