Enemas

An enema is an injection of fluid into the colon to flush out stool. Because neurogenic bowels often cannot empty on their own, enemas are often the best way to evacuate stool to prevent or treat constipation, as well as promote social continence.

This section describes various forms of rectal enemas, as well as suppositories. See the Surgeries section for descriptions of surgical options for antegrade (from the top down) enemas that can be done more independently.
