Bowel control problems

Did you know 1 in 20 Australians have a bowel control problem? This can range from difficulty stopping yourself from passing wind to having accidents from the back passage like loss of liquid, stools or smears. Experiencing this is called faecal incontinence, and this can have a massive impact on your quality of life and the way you live.

There can be numerous causes:

  • Pelvic floor and sphincter muscle weakness or wasting
  • Neurological conditions
  • Bowel or other pelvic surgery
  • Chronic constipation
  • Irritable bowel syndrome

Our pelvic physiotherapists can offer comprehensive assessments to help you regain control to the best of your ability.
