Hi. Dr. Troy Norris here with Balance Chiropractic. Today I want to talk with you just briefly with regards to bed-wetting and chiropractic. We’ve been having patients inquire, ‘Can you help my child with their bed-wetting problems?’
Chiropractic is not a cure for bed-wetting problems. It’s not a cure for stomach problems. The biggest thing we look for in chiropractic is we look for an area of your spine that you have a misalignment with, and we call that a subluxation in chiropractic. When you have a subluxation, it interferes with nerve flow, and there for your body is not going to be able to function at 100%. Some people, they express pain with that. Other people have other systems changes. I just want to be clear with regards to that.
Just a little case study with regards to it. We had a young man that came in. His name was Steve. About 15 years of age. He has had bed-wetting problems his entire life. He can’t get that under control. His father has taken him to the urologist, to the pediatrician, and they’ve done different forms of treatment to try to stop that problem from occurring. His father asked if we would maybe take a look at him and see if we could help him. We evaluated him from a chiropractic standpoint to see if he had an area of misalignment, and we found that his sacrum was out of alignment, which was ultimately irritating his nervous system. We went ahead and we adjusted him.
I’m standing here in front of what we call our Neuropatholator just to show you … I know it’s not the greatest picture, but I want you to see that, from a standpoint … Those nerves in your lower back go down into your legs, but as well, if you look, that upper region, that’s your bladder, then in women, lower portion, that’s a uterus. When we adjusted him, we got the pressure off that lower portion of his back, decreased the stress to his nervous system, and he no longer wet the bed. It completely changed this 15-year-old’s life.
I don’t know if that would be the situation for your child, but if you’ve never tried chiropractic, look at a chiropractor in your area. Give our office a call.
