Enteroptosis – abnormal downward displacement of the intestine

Anatori Sealife Comments 0 13th June 2018

Being diagnosed with this condition means the intestinal loops are displaced far below the required location.
This deviation from the norm is fraught with unpleasant consequences in the form of circulatory disorders and, as a consequence, worsening of the work of the gastrointestinal tract.
Enteroptosis has a multifaceted background. Firstly, this occurrence is genetically conditioned. Another reason may be the individual features of the structure of the human body, where there is a lowered tone of the abdominal muscles and a low diaphragm position. The curvature of the spine (lordosis) can also cause enteroptosis.
People who are actively engaged in physical labour or sports are also at risk of developing enteroptosis. Rapid weight loss is also capable of causing abnormal downward displacement of the intestine.
Abnormal downward displacement of the stomach itself can also lead to a further displacement of the remaining digestive organs.
Symptoms of this disease are extremely extensive. These include:

  • Painful sensations in the lower abdomen and groin area;
  • Uncomfortable sensations in the abdomen when in the body is in its vertical position. They are usually accompanied by headaches and nausea;
  • Flatulence is common and constipation may form;
  • Men often have frequent urge to urinate. Female menstruation with this diagnosis becomes much more painful;

If a disease is suspected, a comprehensive examination is recommended. Methods of diagnosis:

  • X-ray of the abdominal cavity.
  • Ultrasound of the peritoneum.
  • CT scan.

Abnormal downward displacement of the intestine: treatment and prevention.

To combat the diagnosis of abnormal downward displacement of the intestines, a balanced diet, therapeutic physical exercises, specialized massage and the use of necessary adaptations (for example, a supporting bandage) will help.
Surgical intervention with this disease is appropriate in case the other methods have not had the desired effect. In this case, the performed operation does not guarantee the absence of further relapses. Surgical intervention should be performed if the disease threatens the work of the abdominal organs, blocking the flow of blood to them.
In addition to ancillary tools, the appropriate help in combating abnormal downward displacement of the intestine can be provided by specially selected exercises. At the first stage of the exercise, the exercises are carried out in a horizontal position. In the future, you can move on to more intensive training.
Colonic irrigation will strengthen the muscles of the intestine and prevent the development of any pathologies.
