Bedwetting (Nocturnal Enuresis)

Bedwetting, or involuntary urination while sleeping, affects many children and adolescents. It is important to remember that nocturnal bedwetting is involuntary, which means your child cannot consciously control whether or not they release urine in their sleep. What does control this function are the nerves that innervate a smooth muscle valve that releases urine from the bladder. A nervous system functioning free of vertebral subluxations can help to improve bedwetting symptoms. Getting your child checked by your chiropractor is a non-invasive and medication-free alternative that could help bedwetting symptoms.
