About Chronic Constipation

Constipation is one of the most common digestive complaints, and is the cause of 2.5 million visits to physicians and 92,000 hospitalizations annually. Constipation is defined as unsatisfactory defecation that is characterized by infrequent stools, difficult stool passage or both. Difficult stool passage includes: straining; hard or lumpy stools; difficulty passing stool; incomplete evacuation; prolonged time to stool; or the need for manual maneuvers to pass stool. Symptoms must persist for at least three consecutive months for the condition to be considered chronic.
