Gastrointestinal motility disorders can be traced to problems with the muscle that controls peristalsis or with the nerves or hormones that govern the muscle’s contractions. In AGA’s Digestive Diseases Self-Education Program® (DDSEP) 9 chapter on gastrointestinal motility, Richard Wood Jr., MD, guides you with a review of the essential anatomy, innervation and physiology that affect the neuromuscular control of gastrointestinal motility.
