At MyAccess Clinics we also treat patients experiencing pain due to a number of other conditions.
Ulcerative colitis is an autoimmune condition caused by the body’s immune system attacking itself. This causes continuous segments of inflammation in the gut wall, affecting the colon and rectum only. 2 in 1,000 adults in the UK are affected by ulcerative colitis.
Crohn’s is a lifelong condition and it can be unpredictable. 145 in 100,000 adults in the UK are affected by Crohn’s disease. It is an autoimmune condition caused by the body’s immune system attacking itself. This causes patches of inflammation in the gut wall, affecting any part of the gut.
Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)
Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is a common condition that affects the digestive system. It causes symptoms like stomach cramps, bloating, diarrhoea and constipation. These tend to come and go over time, and can last for days, weeks or months at a time. There’s no cure, but diet changes and medicines can often help control the symptoms.
