Another condition, Pelvic Floor Dysfunction, can also exacerbate the symptoms of constipation. When patients have this condition and choose not to have treatment, the symptoms may persist or further advances. If obstructed defection occurs, long-term damage may occur to the colon.
Unfortunately, eating a proper diet doesn’t doesn’t guarantee that you won’t be affected by constipation, nor is it guaranteed to cure constipation. That’s why it’s important to understand alternative treatments to constipation. These include: laxatives, stool softeners, and enemas. All of these stimulate the intestines and induce bowel movements. None of these alternatives should be used as a long-term solution, or misused. Long-term use of these products can actually cause constipation and other serious health issues. They should be used circumstantially or under the supervision of your doctor/physician.
Constipation has over-the-counter solutions and can also be treated with natural compounds. At Dr. Davidson’s practice, the most effective and personalized treatment plans can be formulated after a scheduled consultation.
If you or someone you know is experiencing prolonged or frequent episodes of constipation, there may be a greater underlying issue. Let Dr. Davidson help you understand what you can do to alleviate chronic constipation. Serious cases of constipation will require more in-depth analysis and Dr. Davidson can provide numerous specialized services to get your digestion under control.
