What are the conventional treatments for prostatitis?
1. Medications
• Antibiotics. Antibiotic treatment is commonly used for treating acute  prostatitis. If the inflammation develops chronic, doctor will prescribe long-term antibiotics for patients. 
• Pain relievers. Over-the-counter (OTC) pain relievers include Acetaminophen (Tylenol) and Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). Ibuprofen (Motrin, Advil) and naproxen (Aleve, Naprosyn) are common NSAIDs. If it is needed, patients can take some pain relievers to get some relief.  
• Alpha blockers. These are prescription medications, taken by mouth, that help relax the bladder neck and the muscle fibers where your prostate joins your bladder. These medications can help improve urine flow caused by prostate problems. 
• Muscle relaxants. Patients with pelvic tension disorders associated with chronic prostatitis/chronic pelvic pain syndrome (CP/CPPS) may be prescribed with these medications. They have good effect on alleviating the pain and pressure that many CPPS patients suffer. Common muscle relaxants prescribed for prostatitis include Robaxin (methocarbamol), valium (diazepam), flexeril (cyclobenzaprine)
2. Physical therapy
• Warm sitz bath. The sitz bath for prostatitis involves soaking the lower half of your body in a tub of warm water for about 30 to 40 minutes. It is an effective and easiest method to relieve the pain associated with prostatitis.
• Exercise. Aerobic exercise is helpful in fighting inflammation, and thereby  treating prostatitis. There are various forms of aerobic exercise, including fast walking, jogging, running, jumping rope, basketball. Other exercises that provide good effect on prostatitis include activities that help reduce stress and tension such as yoga and tai chi.
3. Surgical treatment
