Causes of Bed Wetting

The underlying causes of bed wetting depend on a variety of factors. Generally, it relates to a child's behavior before bed as well as complications while a child sleeps.

Common causes of wetting the bed include:

·         Drinking water shortly before bed

·         Not being able to hold urine for the whole night

·         Poor daytime bathroom habits

·         Producing more urine at night

·         Not waking up when a child's bladder is full

·         Emotional health concerns

While some of the underlying causes are easily managed by encouraging children to use the bathroom regularly throughout the day and limiting liquids before bed, other factors require measures to help a child wake up when he or she needs to urinate at night.

Impact of Chiropractic Care in Cumming

Chiropractic care in Cumming provides an opportunity to assist children with their ability to recognize the urge to use the bathroom during the night. Since the treatment addresses the body's function and health, it allows a child to recognize when to use the bathroom.

Our chiropractor, Dr. Forrest Watts, D.C., focuses on addressing the concerns associated with the underlying problems. For example, we may use gentle adjustments to help a child maintain good posture throughout the day. When the spine is properly aligned and functions well, it helps a child recognize the urge to use the bathroom because the brain receives the signal from the body clearly. 

Along with the improvements in a child's nervous system, chiropractic care is non-invasive. The treatment does not cause physical harm; instead, we use gentle pressure or gentle movements of a child's body to improve the function of the spine and help a child learn better posture.

When to Seek Treatment

Seeking treatment for bed wetting depends on a child's age and situation. Generally, we recommend the treatment when a child previously slept without wetting the bed for a reasonable period of time or when the problem persists after a child starts school. We also recommend the treatment when you have concerns about a child's bed wetting stemming from a health concern or an injury from an accident. Consider treatment if the problem persists after making changes to a child's bedtime routine or bathroom habits during the day.

Wetting the bed is a normal behavior for young children, but it may raise concerns when it persists as a child grows. When you have concerns about a child's bed wetting behavior, you may want to consider working with a chiropractor to address the underlying reasons for the problem.
