Fecal Incontinence

About fecal incontinence

Fecal incontinence refers to the involuntary loss of gas or liquid stool (minor incontinence) or the involuntary loss of solid stool (major incontinence).  Some people may alternate with constipation or diarrhea.  Fecal incontinence should not be considered a normal part of aging, but rather symptoms of underlying conditions.  Fecal incontinence can occur at any age but happens more often with older adults, the elderly and young children.Fecal Incontinence

Fecal incontinence can greatly impact the quality of life, causing the individual to curtail normal activities and social connections, lose self-esteem and bear the cost of medications and incontinence products.   Poor recognition or poor treatment may lead to social withdrawal, depression, anxiety or even more devastating consequences.

Causes of fecal incontinence

Besides there may be cause from some other medical health issues, also the pelvis tissues in distress and pelvis dysfunction may lead to incontinence.  This is due to muscles in the pelvis being tonic, distorted or restricted; ligaments, scar tissues or fascia of the intestines hold tension, weak pelvis muscles have led to abnormal descending of the organs; knots or triggers may develop and weakened sphincter muscle.  Any of these problems may affect the function of visceral organs and cause fecal incontinence.
