Bedwetting and Chiropractic
Children suffering from "Nocturnal Enuresis" more commonly known as bedwetting benefit from chiropractic care. Several studies have shown marked improvement in children with bedwetting who have undergone chiropractic care compared to those who did not receive chiropractic care.
In one study, 171 children suffering with enuresis averaged 7 nights of bed wetting per week prior to the study. After the children were given some initial chiropractic care the average child reduced the number of "wet" nights to 4 nights per week. A full 25% of the children receiving chiropractic showed a 50% reduction in wet nights.
In another study, 46 primary enuretic children were studied. Of this group 31 were placed under chiropractic care while 15 were in the control group and did not receive any chiropractic care. The results of this study showed a 17.9% decrease in wet nights for the chiropractic group. Over the same period of time no change was noted for the control group who did not receive any chiropractic care. Improvements were observed immediately after the first adjustment and remained stable thereafter.
