Laura Rowan | Talking Constipation

Show Notes:

In today’s episode, Lynn talks with OT Laura Rowan about constipation – what is it and how practitioners should be asking clients about their bowel health. 

Constipation is a term defined by frequency, observation and effort. Based on the statistics, 1 in 5 of your clients are likely suffering and need strategies to help manage these symptoms. As a clinician you should be asking questions about bowel health and treating it along with other client complaints. 

Learn what to ask and how to ask about this important topic in today’s podcast. 

Laura is joining us for our 10th edition of the Birth Healing Summit which will be focusing on all things pregnancy! For more tips on how to better support your pregnant clients, join us for the 2024 Birth Healing Summit.
