Bedwetting Treatment at Diamond Chiropractic
At Diamond Chiropractic in Omaha, our chiropractor will perform an examination and evaluate your child’s posture to determine the cause of their bedwetting, in relation to the spine. If your child is age 5 and older, x-rays will be taken to further determine the cause. After comparing the findings and confirming the diagnosis, we will develop a treatment plan to help alleviate your child’s symptoms, heal the pain, and provide recommendations to lower their risk for possible re-occurrences.
Our doctor will realign the vertebrae in the affected area to increase the child’s range of motion and alleviate the pain on the spinal nerves. Realigning the vertebrae will improve communication between the nerves to the rest of the body; in this case, to the nerves connected to the child’s kidneys and other organs. Symptoms resulting from bedwetting, from other nerves in the affected area, may begin to decrease as well.
Intersegmental traction involves the use of a special chiropractic table. This specific table includes rollers that help lock in the adjustment done the same day. It helps take pressure off the nerves connected to the kidney, bladder, and other nerves. This type of treatment is effective with alleviating nerve pressure from bedwetting.
Electro-therapy, or acupuncture, is effective with bedwetting and its symptoms. Acupuncture focus on certain points in relation to certain conditions. In this case, the doctor will target certain acupuncture points with connection to the kidneys, the bladder, the brain, and other nerves in relation to the case. Patients will notice, after several treatments, their child’s back pain begin to decrease. In addition, the child may experience more control over their kidneys and bladder, resulting in fewer incidents.
With any injury, whether to the back, neck, or extremity, the last thing you want to do is make the pain worse. The same idea applies to handling your child’s bedwetting. Our advice is designed to help you perform everyday tasks and responsibilities safely. We focus on healing and relief from bedwetting, not aggravating it further.
