Cecilia Jané, nurse of the ‘Servei de Medicina i Rehabilitació’ of Althaia (Xarxa assistèncial Universitària de Manresa) participated in the IV International Congress of Physiotherapy in Pelvi-perineology (SEFIP) , held in Barcelona from October 24 to 26, to present the preliminary results of the study on the efficacy of MOWOOT, the non-pharmacological and non-invasive solution to treat chronic constipation.
The study, still ongoing, is the result of a collaboration between Mowoot, with Dr. Immaculada Herrero-Fresneda, head of the scientific-medical direction, and the Foundation Althaia (Manresa), with the participation of Cecilia Jané and Dr. Georgia Romero of the pelvic floor service.
One of the main objectives of SEFIP is to enhance knowledge of Pelvi-perineal Physiotherapy, promoting its development and research through the planning and organization of scientific activities or events. With this finality, SEFIP also organized papers, panel discussions, workshops and presentations of posters with the aim of spreading the new studies and initiatives that improve the treatment of pelvic floor dysfunction.
Cecilia Jané presented a poster with first preliminary results obtained to date about the effectiveness of the Colonic Exo-Peristaltic Therapy with Mowoot as treatment of chronic constipation. She explained that Mowoot treatment is safe and the results obtained so far indicate that it is also effective against chronic constipation in patients with pelvic floor disorders.
In the study, 17 patients were included with ages comprised between 43 and 84 years that are suffering from chronic constipation with involvement of the pelvic floor. They were prescribed the use of Mowoot for 20 minutes per day, 14 consecutive days without suspending any of their usual pharmacological treatments, although they could reduce the dose of laxatives and other aid evacuation if it was convenient. The registry of evacuations carried out before and after the treatment, certifies the improvement of the fecal consistency, the increase of the depositions and the reduction of the dose of laxatives. In addition, it should be noted that, during treatment, no adverse effects are reported.
