Bed-wetting is also known as nighttime incontinence or nocturnal enuresis. Generally speaking, if your child is under age 7 and still wetting the bed, it isn't something of which to be concerned. At this stage, your child may still be developing nighttime bladder control.
However, what should you do if it persists beyond this point? Medical treatment may involve medications, but what if you don’t want to go that route? The great news is there are other safe, effective, and natural options, including chiropractic care!
There is evidence that subluxation (misalignments of the spine affecting the nervous system) can be a contributing factor, and once the subluxations are reduced the condition improves.
In a 1991 study of 171 bedwetting children, the average of incidents was reduced from 7 per week to 4, and the number of children assessed as “dry” rose from 1% to 15.5%. Many parents report their children have no bedwetting incidents for several days following chiropractic adjustments.
Chiropractic care works for the whole family! Have you had your spine check by your Kennesaw chiropractor recently?
