The digestive system, unlike the urinary system, does not have a storage component.
It is a linear system with a beginning and an end.
This is called the train 🚝🚝model:
Refers to bowel movements that are infrequent or hard to pass.
The stool is often hard and dry.
Other symptoms may include abdominal pain, bloating, and feeling as if one has not completely passed the bowel movement .
Constipation can cause serious problems in the pelvic floor and two common constipation complications are:
Hemorrhoids are essentially connective tissue containing blood and nerves vessels. They occur from an effort of pushing down such as constipation, pregnancy, birth, mental stress. External hemorrhoids are usually treated with ointments that are applied topically to the hemorrhoid itself and the surrounding area and often cause pain and itching. Internal hemorrhoids will usually not cause pain but will manifest bleeding.
Fissures are cuts in the anus that are irritated every time something passes through the sphincter.
Because of the location in the rectal environment fissures are very prone to infection.
Constipation is considered to be a problem of over-tightening of the pelvic floor muscles. Therefore, a training program that focuses on the movement, stretching and release of the pelvic floor will help to cope with Constipation.
Especially for this purpose, we have prepared a special exercise program that anyone can do at home.
It is also advisable to consider the issue of nutrition and drinking as a contributing factor to Constipation.
