Constipation is a multifactorial problem, with obstructed defecation playing an important role in the clinical picture. The interaction between the functioning of the pelvic floor muscles, intrarectal pressure and the integrity of the pelvic structures contribute to the difficulty in passing a bowel movement. In this webinar, Mandy Röscher introduces physiotherapists to their role in managing constipation. She highlights the important anatomy and physiology of the pelvis and rectal area and then outlines conservative management strategies for dyssynergic pelvic floor muscles and structural changes that can result in constipation.
This webinar aims to introduce physiotherapists to their role in the management of the pelvic floor and specific structural changes in the pelvis that can cause constipation.
This webinar recording consists of a 70-minute video and additional resources.
