Bedwetting is stressful for everyone involved. The cause of bedwetting is not fully understood. However, it’s thought that underdeveloped bladders and/or difficulty recognizing when the bladder is full may be the cause. Bedwetting is more common for children under the age of 4.

If a child goes a long time without wetting the bed and then wets the bed again, it may be a sign that something is wrong. Stress from a move, divorce, new baby, school, an underlying medical condition, or physical or sexual abuse could be the cause.

A child’s sacrum (low part of the spine) is 5 separate bones. A fall may cause these bones to become misaligned. This misalignment may hinder the nerves in the area that signal to the bladder when it’s full.

Chiropractors, like Dr. Schulte, help to gently realign the bones in the spine and remove stress so the nerves can signal clearly and effectively.
