Winter Anti-Inflammatory Strategies: 4 Physiotherapy Methods for Treating Salpingitis

Entering winter, the cold climate makes women with weaker constitutions more susceptible to the cold, leading to a high incidence of gynecological inflammation. Regrettably, many women do not take minor inflammations seriously, which can easily lead to ascending infections and more severe inflammations, such as salpingitis.


The acute phase mainly manifests as lower abdominal pain and fever, varying slightly with the severity of the inflammation. Some patients experience chills, headaches, and loss of appetite before the onset of high fever. An increase in vaginal discharge, due to the secretions from salpingitis passing through the uterine cavity, is also common. Some cases may exhibit gastrointestinal and bladder irritation symptoms. 

Chronic salpingitis clinically presents as lower abdominal pain accompanied by back and sacral soreness, a feeling of heaviness, and can recur, often worsening after exertion or menstruation. Long-term cases may develop psychoneurotic symptoms such as lethargy, fatigue, general discomfort, and insomnia.

Salpingitis is a common condition in women, with the most prevalent cause being bacterial infection. Salpingitis can be classified into acute and chronic forms, with chronic salpingitis characterized by a long duration and a tendency to recur. Chronic salpingitis may be treated with physiotherapy, which can promote local blood circulation and help alleviate the pain and discomfort caused by the inflammation.

Common physiotherapy methods include the following:

1. Massage: Massage can promote blood circulation and help improve the abdominal pain and other discomforts caused by salpingitis. However, care must be taken with the intensity of the massage to avoid causing damage to the local skin.

2. Phototherapy: Phototherapy for salpingitis includes infrared and ultraviolet therapy. Infrared radiation improves local blood circulation and promotes the reduction of inflammation, relieving muscle spasms. Ultraviolet light can alleviate inflammation and pain. Salpingitis, often caused by a bacterial retrograde infection, is commonly treated with infrared therapy in clinical settings. Infrared rays have strong penetrability and can reach the pelvic fallopian tubes, playing a role in sterilization and improving the metabolism of the diseased tissue, particularly in cases of bacterial infections, thus helping to alleviate pain.

3. Hot Compress: Also known as thermotherapy, hot compress treatment uses gentle heat stimulation as a benign stimulus to improve the efficiency of the pelvic blood circulation system, thereby aiming to treat salpingitis. However, it is important to avoid excessively high temperatures to prevent burns.

4. Microwave Therapy: Microwave therapy is effective for its antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties, capable of eliminating inflammation in the fallopian tubes. It promotes the circulatory system and cell metabolism, improving the nutrient supply of tissue cells, and has some degree of anti-inflammatory and bactericidal effect. While microwave therapy can assist in reducing inflammation and killing bacteria, it is not effective in treating adhesions and blockages caused by inflammatory infections.

For mild cases of salpingitis, these treatments can be somewhat effective. However, for patients with more severe symptoms, in addition to using physiotherapy methods to alleviate discomfort, they can also consider using traditional Chinese medicine, such as Fuyan Pill, to eliminate the inflammatory infection, restore the patency of the fallopian tubes, and relieve symptoms.

Patients with salpingitis should also strengthen their preventive measures. In daily life, attention should be paid to personal hygiene, such as frequently changing underwear and wearing loose, pure cotton clothing. 

Diet is important too. In the winter, appropriate nutritional supplements should be taken to ensure adequate intake of nutrients. It's crucial to stay warm in cold weather to avoid getting chilled. Additionally, maintaining good daily routines, ensuring sufficient sleep, avoiding staying up late, and improving one's immunity are also important.
