The Truth About Bedwetting

The Truth About Bedwetting

If you’re a parent to a child struggling with bedwetting, you understand the sadness and shame that your child feels each time it occurs. You’ve likely tried multiple things such as rewards, even punishments, and trips to the doctor. You probably made pull-ups a nightly routine and added plastic sheets to the bed.

There are many children who also have problems throughout the daytime. While this is frustrating for both parents and children, but often it’s something the child can’t control: a spinal problem.

Bedwetting is a devastating problem for both parents and children. Chiropractic care may help!

Why Does It Happen?

Enuresis, also known as bedwetting, is controlled by the brain, which regulates the bladder and every other part of the human body by sending messages down your spinal cord. If there is a problem in the spine, those messages aren’t being received. A problem in the spine could be affecting child’s ability to empty their bladder at the right times.

How Can We Help?

We can evaluate your child’s spine to determine if there are any spinal problems that could be causing bedwetting. Your child may not complain of back problems or pain but this misalignment in their back can be so subtle that they don’t even feel it.

Most parents usually just prepare themselves to wait for their child to outgrow this problem, but without treatment, it can last for years, in many cases it can go well beyond 4-5 years of age. We can evaluate a child of any age for this common problem. If you and your children want to get back to a good night’s sleep, every night, give us a call!
