Even bears need adjustments from time to time

Lack of bladder control can cause shame, guilt and impaired social skills. Bedwetting (nocturnal enuresis) takes a tremendous toll on children. Embarrassment. Alarms. No sleepovers. Plastic mattress covers. Frustration. Unable to fit in. Even diapers.

Up to the age of four or five, most children have poor bladder control at night. But after that, the inability to stay dry at night may be a sign of an underlying problem.

Physiology of the Bladder

Two key muscles control the emptying of the bladder. Their technical names are the detrusor and trigone muscles. Nerves that exit the spinal column in the lower back and sacrum control these muscles.

Sometimes, the brain cannot send messages to control these areas appropriately because the pathway between the brain and the bladder has been disturbed or blocked (from falling, learning to walk, ride a bike, etc.). These blockages may compromise nerves that are responsible for bladder function.

While chiropractic is not a treatment for bedwetting, countless children have been helped with safe and natural chiropractic care.

We look for these disturbances and blockages during our examination. When these blockages are cleared with safe and natural chiropractic adjustments, nervous system control and regulation of the bladder may often be restored.


Published Research About Chiropractic and Bed Wetting

The Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics document many studies showing the positive benefits of chiropractic care.

  • A study of 46 children received chiropractic care for a 10-week period. A quarter of those receiving chiropractic care had 50% or more reduction in the wet night frequency, while none among the control group saw a reduction. (JMPT 1994 (Nov-Dec);17 (9): 596-600)
  • Children with a history of persistent bed-wetting received eight chiropractic adjustments. The number of wet nights fell from seven per week to four. (JMPT 1991 (Feb);14 (2): 110-115)
  • The lumbar spine of an eight-year-old male bed wetter was adjusted once and at a one-month follow-up. There was a complete resolution of enuresis. “This happened in a manner that could not be attributed to time or placebo effect.” (JMPT 1994 (Jun);17 (5): 335-338)
