Bedwetting and Chiropractic
Bedwetting is stressful for everyone involved. Lack of bladder control can cause embarrassment, shame, and interfere with normal social development. Chiropractic, although not thought of by many as a conventional coarse of care for those suffering with bedwetting, can help! A specific chiropractic adjustment can remove any irritation that may be affecting the nerves that control bladder function.
The bladder, like all other organs in the human body, is controlled by nerves that exit the spinal column. Specifically the nerves that control the bladder exit an area of the spine called the Sacrum. In adults, the sacrum is one large fused bone that is very resistant to injury. However, during childhood, the sacrum is separated into five individual segments. If these segments become misaligned, due to a fall or other type of trauma, they can compromise the nerves that are responsible for bladder function. Because of this chiropractic has helped countless children that are suffering with the issue of bedwetting. In fact, a number of clinical research studies have demonstrated that chiropractic care can help many children suffering from bedwetting. Schedule your appointment today!
