Sev­eral recent stud­ies have shown the ben­e­fits of chi­ro­prac­tic care for chil­dren suf­fer­ing from “Noc­tur­nal Enure­sis” more com­monly known as bed­wet­ting. Sev­eral stud­ies pub­lished in the Jour­nal of Manip­u­la­tive and Phys­i­o­log­i­cal Ther­a­peu­tics showed marked improve­ment in chil­dren with this prob­lem over chil­dren 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 addi­tion, only 1% of the chil­dren were con­sid­ered “dry” prior to the study and prior to receiv­ing chi­ro­prac­tic care. After the study 15% of the chil­dren were then con­sid­ered “dry”.

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.

Amaz­ingly, improve­ment in some of the stud­ies was shown to be imme­di­ate after the first adjust­ment and remained sta­ble thereafter.

It is really important to understand that children are subluxated, starting from the birth process; therefore prevention by early examination of asymptomatic children is the key and outweighs the symptom-based approach.

Bedwetting is just one of many other problems that occur as a result of subluxation.

After the neck, the low back is the second most common area of subluxation. Science has shown that subluxation chokes the spinal cord and applies dangerous pressure on the spinal cord causing dysfunction in the Autonomic Nervous System.

Pictured above, is the network of nerves going from the low back to a multitude of organs. How many people you know suffer or have problems with organs from this picture

There are a countless number of people in our office who have reported improvement in these areas as well as, Bedwetting, IBS, Infertility, Menstrual Cramps and Irregularity, Low back pain, Prostatic, Uteral and Ovarian problems, Sciatica, Numbness and tingling in legs, etc.

Even if people do not feel any problems there yet, how many people will have problems with those organs in their lifetime?

If you know or hear somebody complaining about those problems, ask them about their low back and say just MAYBE, just MAYBE, chiropractic might help.

Be a blessing to someone today and tell them about chiropractic!
