This is a common question asked when it comes to bedwetting and the answer is that while it may help some of the time, there is a good chance that what I'm about to explain may mean it makes little difference. Let me explain something that may make better sense. As a Chiropractor, we look for nerve interference in the messages from the brain down the spinal cord. With bedwetting we sometimes, but, not always find that there is a relationship between nerve flow interference and bedwetting. In simple terms, we find areas where joints may be tight or subluxated in the back and as a result the messages may not getting through from the brain to bladder when the child is sleeping. So even if you reduce evening fluids, if the message is not getting through, the bedwetting may continue.
Children and adults who have nerve interference from a tight joint or joints may have no symptoms or discomfort. Treatment is very gentle and often enjoyable for children. I would suggest if you have not seen a Chiropractor that you consider having your child assessed for nerve interference by a Chiropractor who has a special interest in treating children.
If you are in Sydney, I suggest Dr Felicity Young.
I hope you are able to resolve this soon.
Michael Cohen, Chiropractor
