Bladder or Bowel Dysfunction
Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation in Fremont
What causes bowel / bladder dysfunction? In many cases, especially in the
area of physical medicine and rehabilitation, these so-called voiding
disorders are the cause of neurologic disorders.
These complications may include:
- Cerebrovascular accidents (CVAs)
- Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs)
- Multiple sclerosis (MS)
- Spinal cord injury (SCI)
- Disease of the spinal cord
Not only can incontinence or loss of bowel control cause a patient social
anxiety and psychological distress, it may also cause additional medical
complications. Examples include:
- Renal injury
- Pressure sores
