Frequent constipation, diarrhoea, especially where they alternate, as well as pain while passing stool and faecal incontinence may be caused by dysfunction of pelvic floor muscles and nerves.
Similarly to the bladder problems, the role of a physiotherapist here is to examine the condition of pelvic floor muscles, nerves and ligaments (tension, pain, swelling, pressure) and to have them function in a balanced way.
