Biofeedback for Constipation
Chronic constipation has the potential to be a highly serious and disruptive health issue. The excretory system is critical to maintaining our bodily comfort and normal functionality – when something goes wrong in the bowel, fast, effective treatment is essential. At JAG PT, we use clinically-backed biofeedback treatment to quickly relieve the symptoms of functional constipation and keep the digestive and excretory process working properly in the long term.
Our biofeedback program is rooted in our pelvic treatment specialization and has helped many patients experience significant improvement or resolution to their constipation without the need of medication or risk of side effects.
How Does Biofeedback to Treat Constipation Work?
Biofeedback uses sensors and controlled stimuli to help individuals learn more about their bodily processes. Under the guidance of JAG PT’s specialists in biofeedback treatment, people who have constipation can exert greater control over their bowel, their abdominal and pelvic muscles, and other related body systems, thereby improving their excretory regularity, lowering their levels of pain, and overall contributing to symptom relief.
What Are the Benefits of Biofeedback in Cases of Constipation?
Clinical studies have shown that biofeedback is a very effective treatment for functional constipation. In these studies, 80% of people experienced improvement in their condition, and continued to enjoy this improvement 3 and a half years later and more. The level of symptom relief from biofeedback can be up to 70% greater than other treatments (including medication), and this treatment can be used in cases of IBS-C, neurogenic bowel disorders, spinal cord injury, multiple sclerosis, and more.
