Any parent who has witnessed the sadness and disappointment of their 8 year old child turning down a sleepover due to persistent bedwetting understands the pain and shame the child feels. Parents try everything from waking their child during the night to the good old fashioned restricting fluids at night with no results; most parents don’t even consider chiropractic care.
Chiropractors don’t claim to treat bedwetting. However, they do know that there is a good chance that chiropractic can help stop bedwetting, or at least reduce the frequency of “wet” nights, if the bedwetting is related to a spinal misalignment.
Several research studies have explored the effectiveness of chiropractic adjustments on bedwetters. In one such study, 25 % of children who received chiropractic adjustments experienced a 50 % or higher reduction in the number of wet nights. None of the children in the control group experienced this same result.
Any person of any age can experience bedwetting and although chiropractors do not claim to cure bedwetting, the studies are beginning to show that it may actually be worth trying.
