Bowel incontinence is the impaired ability to control gas or stool. Causes may include diminished muscle strength with age, injury during childbirth, trauma, or infections around the anal area.
Depending on the severity of the problem, it may be corrected with simple dietary changes, the use of some constipating medications, and exercises to strengthen the anal muscles. In more severe cases, biofeedback maybe used to help patients sense when stool is ready to be evacuated and to help strengthen the muscles.
