If your child has trouble staying dry throughout the night and is older than four or five, you may feel frustrated about your lack of options. Disposable undergarments may keep the bed dry, but they’re an added expense to a family’s budget and are taxing on the environment. Older children may also resist them because of their resemblance to diapers. Waking the child in the night to use the bathroom may help keep them from wetting, but this practice affects the sleep patterns of both parent and child. The same can be said for noisy buzzers and alarms.
If your child still wets the bed past the age of five or so, then it’s time to consider tackling the problem head on relying upon methods that only treat the symptoms. And according to many experts, one of the best ways to address the issue is by taking your child to visit their chiropractor.
Chiropractic care is a safe and painless way to cure nighttime enuresis permanently. Chiropractic care helps to relieve the stress and pressure placed on the nerves which control the urinary system. Often, just a few therapeutic adjustments are all that’s required to see a decrease in bedwetting. Many children are able to stop wetting the bed entirely after a few visits with their chiropractor.
Chiropractic care is for more than aching necks and backs. Because our spine houses the nerves that send out messages to the rest of our bodies, chiropractors are able to treat a variety of conditions that are seemingly unrelated to the spine. Bedwetting is just one of the conditions chiropractors can effectively treat.
If your child is having a hard time staying dry at night, consider making an appointment to discuss your options with a chiropractor. Not only will your child sleep better, they’ll also be able to experience the pride that comes with tackling a problem and overcoming it.
Always consult your chiropractor or primary care physician for all your health related advice.
