Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: PRF on S3 + ganglion impar denervation
patients will receive pulsed radiofrequency on sacral root number 3 in conjunction with ganglion impar denervation by alcohol
Procedure: pulsed radiofrequency
patients with chronic pelvic pain due to chronic prostatitis will receive pulsed radiofrequency on sacral root number 3 and ganglion impar denervation and the patients will be followed for 6 months to assess pain severity radiofrequency procedure: patients will positioned prone on the operating table and under x-ray guidence sacral foramen number 3 will be identified and through it radiofrequency needle will be advanced to target the sacral root ganglion impar procedure: under x-ray guidance the sacrococcygeal junction is identified and spinal needle will be introduced through it to target ganglion impar and 4 ml of alcohol 50% will be injected

Active Comparator: ganglion impar denervation
patients will receive ganglion impar denervation by alcohol
Procedure: ganglion impar denervation
patients with chronic pelvic pain due to chronic prostatitis will receive ganglion impar denervationand and the patients will be followed for 6 months to assess pain severity ganglion impar procedure: under x-ray guidance the sacrococcygeal junction is identified and spinal needle will be introduced through it to target ganglion impar and 4 ml of alcohol 50% will be injected




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. the percentage of patients that achieve more than 50% change of their initial pain on VAS pain score [ Time Frame: patients will be evaluated at 3 months postoperatively ]
    VAS pain is a scale of pain measurements scored grom 0 to 10 in which 0 = no pain and 10 the worst pain immaginable
