Why is Pooping So Difficult?

By Stephanie Stamas


The number of Americans who deal with constipation issues is massive (4 million!)! It seems like every time I mention that I’m a pelvic floor physical therapist another friend pulls me aside with bowel movement concerns. Why is it that so many people have issues? And more importantly – what can we do about it? This is the topic of our next Pelvic Health 101 seminar TONIGHT.

Not only will constipation be discussed but other bowel conditions, such as irritable bowel syndrome, fecal incontinence, bloating and hemorrhoids will be addressed. The lecture will also go in depth on the role of fiber, water intake, toilet posture and pelvic floor muscles in having a successful bowel movement. You will even go home with easy techniques that you can implement immediately to help you get that smooth move! Don’t miss out on this FREE event – it’s a MUST for anyone who struggles on the porcelain throne. Seats are going fast! Register here! PelvicHealth101.eventbrite.com . Light snacks and refreshments will be served.

    Hi there,

    I live on the west coast or I would sure love to attend your seminars! Im wondering if you guys could send out a summary of your session here in your blog for the ones who are into much pain to come see you or like me on the West Coast? I do get all of the blog posts from pelvic health and rehab, Stephanie Pendergrast (I saw her locally had to stop bc of money) and honestly I feel like I learn more from you physical therapists than I do all of my team of doctors. I’ve been struggling with chronic pelvic pain, vulvodynia, interstitial cystitis for over 10 years and i’m not much better.
    It would be great if you guys could do that I would be so appreciative. Many thanks!!

    I have pelvic floor and other issues. My consitpation has improved with the use of the “Squatty Potty”. It’s sold at Bed, Baty and Beyond. It’s an amazing tool and it realy works.
