Bedwetting / Enuresis

Bedwetting is considered a medical problem only after a child is at least three years old. Almost 15% of children above the age of three continue to wet their beds, and more boys wet their beds than girls. Sometimes it can be the sign of an emotional problem, but most children stop it on their own before puberty.

Several steps can be taken to handle enuresis without medical intervention:

    * Limiting the child's intake of liquids before bedtime is one way to make it easier for him or her to stay dry.

    * Getting the child up to go to the bathroom at night may help.

    * Behavior modification techniques are effective in eliminating enuresis. For example, parents use wall charts with gold stars awarded for dry nights to inspire the child to work toward token rewards and favorite treats.

Success! A month on miralax, then Metamucil wafers every other day worked for my son. Bedwetting often caused by constipation. No caffeine at all! Years of Alarm system or night waking helps also. And Desmoppressin as last resort.

Alarm therapy

* Alarm therapy offers the possibility of sustained improvement of enuresis and should be considered for every patient. Alarm therapy is reported to improve bedwetting by increasing nocturnal bladder capacity or by enhanced arousal. Alarm therapy does not reduce nocturnal urine output. Some successfully treated children replace enuresis with nocturia, and others sleep dry without the need to void at night. Some improve within the first 2 weeks of treatment and others only after several months. The volume of enuretic urine may diminish progressively until dryness is achieved, or the improvement can be more sudden. A Cochrane review of 56 randomized trials involving 3,257 children concluded that alarm therapy is beneficial. About two thirds of children on alarm therapy were dry

After 25 years in practice I have seen numerous cases of incontinence in adults and in children safely and effectively addressed by chiropractic adjustments. By no means is this a cure all for every case, but in the instance of neurological deficit caused by vertebral subluxation, then the chiropractic adjustment may be the only cure. I have seen young children who were afraid of sleepovers and scouting events begin to make new friends and fully participate in life by knowing they are free from the fear of an accident. I have seen the mother who was afraid to attend her children's school events gain the freedom to go to school functions without the anxiety of an embarrassing episode.
