Bedwetting beyond “normal” age can be difficult for families. Unbearable amounts of stress on the parents who work tirelessly at changing the sheets, keeping up with smells, and not to mention the inability to sleep through the entire night. On top of parental stress, you add the devastating stress on the kids that are left with feelings of shame, embarrassment, and anxiety. The social patterns are disrupted and stress can pile on the entire family.
We’ve heard it all… and we are excited that we’ve also gotten to be a part of the solution for so many families. It truly is a beautiful thing to hear parents tell us that their kid is no longer wetting the bed!
We don’t “fix” bedwetting. As chiropractors, we simply work with the child’s brain and nervous system. The chiropractic adjustment to the spine increases the communication between the brain and the rest of the body. As a result to improving this communication, we see a wide-array of symptoms disappear. In the case of bedwetting, the body is able to go into a rest and digest state. Within this state, the brain is able to communicate with the bladder and improve control.
We cannot control what happens after the chiropractic adjustment, but we can share our success stories! We have had many families report that chiropractic care has helped their children with bedwetting; which improves the stress in the household, improves sleep patterns, and creates a healthier environment.
