About the resource

This issue of MS in focus is dedicated to elimination dysfunction; that is, bladder and bowel problems. Often these two topics are discussed together because the same MS lesions in the spinal cord can impair the transmission of messages that control both these functions.

Included in this issue:

  • Bladder function in MS
  • Bowel function in MS
  • Treating bladder and bowel problems
  • Role of rehabilitation in managing bladder and bowel problems in MS
  • Self-management of bladder and bowel problems
  • Bladder and bowel survey results
