After a complete spinal cord injury the descending input from the brain to the colon and ano-rectum is lost. These changes result in the loss of sensation of the need for defaecation, loss of voluntary control of defaecation and loss of the brain’s influence over reflex activity.

Bowel care is provided to clients with a spinal injury and specialist moving and handling needs.

Our staff are sensitive and well trained to carry out bowel care.
