In brief: Bowel program
If you are referring to a spinal cord injury, the bowel can be trained to have regular movements.
This often requires several steps and is taught during rehabilitation.

In brief: Depend on cause
If you have experienced a spinal cord injury, you should contact your doctor for bowel & bladder management techniques.
If this is secondary to medication, a change of medication may be helpful. The drinking of plentiful liquids, eating a high fiber diet may helpful. The use of prescription or otc stool softness and laxatives may help. Daily exercises may serve as a stimulant.
