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 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.
