Spastic Colon

Read in Hindi

Spastic colon occurs due to increased contractility of the intestinal muscles. This may also lead to abdominal spasm. The exact reason for such problem has not been properly investigated, but the experts have identified some abnormalities in the signaling mechanism between the nervous system and the intestinal muscles which can be a leading cause for such abrupt muscular contraction. Stress may also instigate such a situation. Spastic colon is often associated with bowel irritation, stomach pain and bowel incontinence. Several advanced techniques are available for the treatment of spastic colon. In addition to that, by staying away from certain types of foods (fat-rich food, caffeine, sugar and alcohol) and incorporating fibres in daily meals help to keep the problem at bay.
