I read somewhere that many people with Colonic Inertia are helped greatly when doing physical therapy for pelvic floor/outlet dysfunction. I have colonic inertia, going for a rectal manometry next week but I also have splenic flexure syndrome. I read somewhere that there is a large portion (possibly the majority?) of people with colonic inertia are able to avoid surgery and get resolution just by retraining the pelvic floor muscles. Does anyone have any data on that?

Thank you.

I was referred to a Pelvic Floor Therapist. I have not gone because I think its useless at this point. I will be going to motility clinic to find out why my constipation is getting worse. I will probably try the PFT before I make a decision to have surgery, but don't feel hopeful.
