Can Constipation Cause Bladder Leaking??






✅ So many of our clients report that their bladder leaking becomes worse when they are constipated.


Why would this be happening?


✅ The pelvis is like the body's main intersection! There is a lot going on in the pelvic bowl!!!


✅The pelvic organs sit on the deepest layer of our pelvic floor muscles with the digestive organs located above.


✅ In addition to our pelvic organs, there are muscles, ligaments, tendons, veins, arteries, nerves, and connective tissue going through the pelvis as well.



✅ If there is stool sitting in the lower rectum because of constipation it can take up additional space in the pelvic bowl and put more pressure on the bladder and can be the cause of bladder issues.


✅ Another important factor to keep in mind is that the pelvic organs pass right through the pelvic floor muscles, therefore, there is a close relationship between bowel and bladder function and the overall health of the pelvic floor muscles!!


✅ A recent study showed that about 70% people with constipation ALSO have pelvic floor dysfunction!


Remember…. The key to long term success in healing is looking at the WHOLE person and using a Total Body Approach!!


✅When working on a bladder retraining program managing constipation and making sure that the pelvic floor muscles are performing optimally should be an important part of the plan of care for optimal and long-lasting results!!!


✅There are so many ways a pelvic floor physical therapist can help you resolve bowel and bladder issues WITHOUT taking medication or having surgery!!
