Bowel Issues in Women
Bowel issues commonly occur in women. While it is common, it is not spoken about in the same way that other issues are.
The most common cause of bowel issues is childbirth, especially if you have suffered from a third- or fourth-degree tear or if you have had nerve damage throughout your pregnancy, labour, and delivery. The pelvic floor may also weaken due to constant constipation and straining. Being overweight can also cause strain to the pelvic floor. Bowel issues such as irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) can cause diarrhoea. If the sphincter muscle is weak, it may cause problems such as leakage.
Here at Physio Hub, we will conduct a thorough assessment including the history of your problem and to find the cause of the problem.
Bowel issues can be treated using the following:
- Strengthening of the pelvic floor using exercises and stimulation
- Defaecation techniques
- Soft tissue therapy
- Mobilisation of the nerves
- Advice on improving fitness and mobility
