Description

Constipation Management is a free app from University of Utah Hospitals and Clinics. It is only available in the App Store to download for iOS 8.0 software or higher. While it is marketed as ‘simple’, reviewers claim it has all you need to know about constipation.

 

Overview

Constipation Management is a comprehensive guide for people who deal with frequent constipation. You can locate many browsable topics on the app’s Constipation Management page. For example, the What is Constipation page defines constipation. What is Biofeedback educates readers on one solution.

Constipation Management is a comprehensive guide for people who deal with frequent constipation.”

 

Constipation Management

The guide offers an array of topics users can search to help manage their constipation. The main page is separated into sections such as: 

  • General
  • Management
  • Medication
  • Biofeedback
  • Opioid-induced Constipation

 

The general section lists frequent, useful questions about constipation including its causes and mechanisms and how to test for it.

 

What is Constipation

On the What is Constipation page the app delves into the reasons behind constipation occurrence. There, readers can use the information provided to properly identify if what their having is constipation or something else. If constipation is confirmed, the user can then move onto treatments. 

 

Biofeedback

Biofeedback is listed as an effective form of therapy for treating constipation. It is defined in the app, as “a behavioral therapy that teaches one how to have a bowel movement”. While this form of therapy may, in fact, offer relief, the actual definition is it monitors brain waves to train someone to complete a function. It can be useful for constipation, however, an authentic definition is still missing.
