Explanation:
What is digital stimulation?

Digital stimulation is a way to turn on peristalsis in the colon, to start a bowel movement, and to keep it going. This method uses a finger or a stimulant tool to relax and open the anal sphincters and to trigger peristalsis.

Many cord injured people (upper motor neuron or reflexic bowel) need to start bowel care by stimulating the rectum to eliminate stool. If you have a high lesion, you might need assistance in doing it.

There is another method of rectal stimulation which relies on a pharmacological agent (a suppository or a mini-enema) to trigger the emptying of the left colon.
