Bedwetting – Causes, Symptoms, Diagnosis and Treatment

A simple fall on the rump could be the cause

bedwettingA number of clinical research studies demonstrate that chiropractic care can help with bedwetting by removing any irritation that may be affecting the nerves that control bladder function.

Bedwetting is stressful for everyone involved. Lack of bladder control can cause embarrassment, shame, and interfere with normal social development. All of the causes of bed-wetting are not fully understood. There are children whose bladders are underdeveloped for their age and who have difficulty recognizing when their bladder is full. This is much more common in children under four years of age.

If a child, who had been dry at night for a period of time – weeks or months – suddenly starts bed-wetting again, this may be a sign that something is wrong. Most often this happens when some form of stress is in the child’s life: a new baby in the home, moving to a new neighborhood, or a divorce. Bedwetting may also be a sign of physical or sexual abuse or some other disease process. If your child wets the bed after having been dry at night in the past, it is important that they be seen by a doctor. The bed-wetting may be a sign that stress or a disease is causing the problem.

Chiropractic can help by removing any physical irritation that may be affecting the nerves that control bladder function. These nerves exit an area of the spine called the Sacrum. In adults, the sacrum is one large fused bone that is very resistant to injury. However, during childhood, the sacrum is separated into five individual segments. If these segments become misaligned, due to a fall or other type of trauma, they can compromise the nerves that are responsible for bladder function. While chiropractic is not typically a treatment for bedwetting, countless children have been helped by being adjusted. In fact, a number of clinical research studies have demonstrated that chiropractic care can help many children suffering from bedwetting. Contact us today!

If the cause of your condition is related to the misalignment of one or more vertebra which is directly affecting the flow of nerve impulses to your body, you need to know that only specific chiropractic adjustments to gently move your spine into balance is going to fix the cause. Medications may change the symptoms you are experiencing, but drugs have serious side effects and do not address the cause of the symptom. Physical therapy in the case where spinal misalignments are the cause is a waste of money and time.

The diagnosis is simple. You either have misaligned vertebra or other boney components that are out of alignment or you don’t. A good analogy  is when your car’s wheels are out of alignment. The only fix is to realign your wheels.

Finding your problem:  Subluxations or misalignments for the benefits of laymens terms, are easy and painless to detect by a highly trained and experienced chiropractor. Call us today at 949 388-0800 and let us get you back to health.

Conditions & Symptoms

Only one treatment and I felt immediate relief

“Hi, I’m Terry Hawn, Dr. Hawn’s wife. You’ve heard the old saying that the shoemaker’s children have no shoes. Well what that means is usually the shoemaker is so busy making shoes for other people that he’s too busy to make shoes for his own family. Not so with my husband, and I’m not just going to sing his praises because he’s my husband. I’m the first to say if something isn’t right. But I will tell you that my husband really saved my life with a treatment called Vibration Wave on what was diagnosed as Morton’s Neuroma. It was a major pain under my left foot.

It was so painful; this bundling of nerves that surgery, according to most podiatrists, was the only offered solution. Dr Hawn acquired this fabulous piece of equipment that breaks up scar tissue and adhesions and has evolved its application into what is now called Vibration Wave Therapy. While testing, he applied only one treatment and I felt immediate relief. So I’m not just blowing smoke, I’m telling you that this vibration wave treatment really works. So, I’m hoping maybe you too will give it a try.”

I experienced instant relief of my acute symptoms

“As a cycling coach and spin instructor, I am accustomed to extreme conditioning and lengthy outdoor training. This past May, I had a cycling accident two weeks prior to the Iron Horse Bicycle Classic in Durango, Colorado.  It was one of the painful injuries I have ever suffered. I couldn’t move my neck or shoulder.  My elbow and wrist were badly sprained.

I had a consultation and examination with Dr. Chris Hawn and after the very first treatment; I experienced instant relief of my acute symptoms and an increase in my range of motion of my neck and shoulder.  With just a few treatments from Dr. Chris, I was back on my bike and finished the race with my best time ever!”

Injured in an Automobile Accident !

“I was in an automobile accident and all they wanted to do was give me pain pills and muscle relaxers.  Their side effects were horrendous.  I couldn’t function, sleep or drive.  My attorney then sent me to Dr. Hawn. What a difference! I am now out of pain and back to normal.  NO MORE DRUGS!”
