Chi­ro­prac­tic and Bed­wet­ting

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 remain sta­ble thereafter.
