Abstract

Gastrointestinal motility is regulated by a complex balance of inhibitory and excitatory neuronal, humoral, and mechanical factors. The goal in the management of motility disorders is to maintain adequate nutrition while decreasing symptoms. This can be accomplished by medications and support of nutrition and biofeedback; the application of these therapeutic strategies to patients with gut motility disorders is reviewed.
