Abstract/Notes

Objective: To describe successful chiropractic care of a pediatric patient with nocturnal enuresis.

Clinical Features: A nine year old boy with nocturnal enuresis was presented for chiropractic care after unsuccessful medical approaches. Visual examination revealed several postural bnormalities. Motion palpation revealed vertebral subluxations in the cervical and lumbosacral spine regions.

Interventions and Outcomes: The patient was cared for with contact specific, high velocity, low-amplitude type thrust to sites of spinal subluxations. Proper dietary modifications were implemented as indicated from the patient’s 7-day dietary intake form. By the seventh visit, it was reported that the patient had been enuresis free for two weeks which continued to be the case at a four month follow up; which deemed resolution of nocturnal enuresis.

Conclusion: The case of a nine year old male with past history of nocturnal enuresis is resented. Dramatic improvement is noted following the introduction of chiropractic care concomitant with a reduction in vertebral subluxation. Additional research on the benefits of chiropractic care and nocturnal enuresis is warranted.
