With the improvement of people's family economic level, the number of people who have cars is increasing. People who have cars and drive for a long time after buying a new car will experience symptoms such as dizziness and fatigue to varying degrees. Some people who have cars also suffer from low back pain, neck infarction, prostatitis, and other diseases. In particular, the most common occupational disease among drivers is chronic prostatitis.
Chronic prostatitis becomes a "taxi" occupational disease
Mr. Kong told the doctor that since buying a car, he has often experienced back pain and neck stiffness. Recently, he has been experiencing poor urination, sometimes even having to urinate 5-6 times within an hour. At night, feeling doubly tired can cause problems with erectile function. He suspected that he had a serious illness and asked the doctor for help in making a definite diagnosis.
Associate Professor Dai, deputy chief physician of the andrology department of a certain hospital, pointed out that with the improvement of people's family economic level, the number of people who have cars is increasing. People who have cars and drive for a long time after buying a new car will experience symptoms such as dizziness and fatigue to varying degrees. Some people who have cars also suffer from low back pain, neck infarction, prostatitis, and other diseases, especially the most common occupational disease among drivers is chronic prostatitis.
"Once suffering from prostatitis, not actively treating it can lead to ED, which can seriously affect the quality of sexual life." Is this theory correct?
Associate Professor Dai said that the prostate is the tissue between the male bladder and urethra, close to the perineum. If you drive for several or even more than ten hours for a long time, local air tightness, accumulation of metabolic products, poor blood circulation, obstruction of prostate gland tubes, and poor excretion of glandular fluid can cause chronic congestion of the prostate, leading to prostatitis. Once prostatitis is combined with bacterial and pathogenic microbial infections, it can also cause bacterial prostatitis, with more complex symptoms. The biggest characteristic of this disease is recurrent attacks, which can be cured and repeated. Chronic prostate discomfort can also cause symptoms such as neurasthenia, insomnia, general fatigue, and headaches.
Excessive formaldehyde in the vehicle can lead to "poisoning"
Associate Professor Dai pointed out that car owners who stay in their cars for a long time after buying a new car should be careful of the "poisoning" caused by excessive levels of harmful substances such as formaldehyde in the car.
This is also one of the reasons why Che ethnic groups are prone to male diseases.
Many people buy new cars and drive them, always feeling that there is a "strange smell" in the car. Soon, I feel dizzy, weak, and sore throat. After leaving the car for a while, I will feel better again. This is because the plastic accessories, carpets, roof mats, sofas, etc. installed in new vehicles contain harmful gases that can release formaldehyde, acetone, etc. Without passing the release period, people who inhale too much can cause poisoning.
In addition, low back pain is also a common disease among car owners. This is caused by driving in a fixed position for a long time, or by improper driver's seat, incorrect pedal distance adjustment, or improper back tilt angle.
Due to the driver's high concentration of thought, lack of exercise, and slow blood circulation when driving, it is also easy to cause heart problems, such as premature coronary heart disease, angina pectoris, and myocardial infarction. These are generally diseases that occur only in the elderly, and now occur occasionally among young people. According to outpatient statistics, heart disease is currently on the rise among young people, and professional drivers account for a large proportion.
Take a break after driving for 1-2 hours continuously
According to Associate Professor Dai, the deputy chief physician of the andrology department of the hospital, currently, patients with prostatitis account for about 70% of the total number of urological outpatient visits. Half of them are car owners and "taxi drivers". The doctor recommends comprehensive treatment, while reminding motorists to pay attention to their lifestyle and not to drive for a long time. After 1-2 hours of driving, they should stop and exercise for 15 minutes to relieve themselves. At the same time, exercise to strengthen your physique, exercise more at ordinary times, live regularly, and don't stay up late. In addition, during the first six months of driving a new car, it is important to maintain good ventilation in the car, adjust the driver's seat, and frequently change positions while driving.
