Bowel and bladder dysfunction is common in the neurologically involved patient. Some of these bowel and bladder complications are potentially modifiable through behavioral training and exercise. Join the Central District on Wednesday, July 17 for "Bowel and Bladder Considerations for the Neurologic Patient" as we learn the neurophysiology of bowel and bladder control as well as the side effects of many neurological insults.
