Extrapolating from reports on men with chronic prostatitis/chronic pelvic pain syndrome (CP/CPPS), acupuncture may also represent a safe and potentially efficacious therapy for CSP. In one pilot study, patients with CPPS underwent 2 acupuncture sessions weekly for a total of 8 weeks43. A significant decrease in NIH-CPSI scores were found in more than half of the patients. Further study is required to determine the translatability of these results to the specific Chronic scrotal pain (CSP) population (Level of evidence 4, Grade D).
