Bowel Issues.

Gain control over bowel issues.

If the gut’s not happy, nothing is happy. It’s true on so many levels. When you’re having gut issues, it will affect your comfort in public or with activities, increase depression and/or anxiety, cause pain and disturb your sleep.

Fun fact: Did you know that 90% of the body’s serotonin (one of the body’s happy chemicals) is made in the gut? If the bowels are in disarray, then that serotonin machine is not pumping well either!

Bowel problems can include everything from constipation to diarrhea, fecal incontinence to bloating – and everything in between. You may have been diagnosed with IBS, Chron’s, Celiac or diverticulitis. Maybe no diagnosis has been given, but you’ve just dealt with it on your own. 

Regardless of your path, PT can help.

PT treatments for bowel issues include:

  • A lot of education about self-care strategies
  • Manual techniques to reduce restrictions
  • Defecation dynamics training (yes – that’s actually a thing!) 🙂
  • Personalized training in how to improve pelvic muscle function.

It’s never easy to start a conversation about bowel habits and issues, but taking that step can mean you finally getting back to life the way it should be!
