Peer Review Yes
Publication Type Case Report

Objective: The purpose of this case study is to present the chiropractic management and resolution of a case of childhood nocturnal enuresis.

Clinical Features: Case report of subluxation based chiropractic care for a ten year old boy with a history of nighttime enuresis that occurred two to three times per week.

Interventions and Outcomes: High Velocity, low-amplitude adjustments were given one to two times per week for ten weeks. Diversified technique was utilized to assess for the areas of vertebral subluxation that were present and an adjustment was given. The patient and his mother reported a decrease in the frequency of occurrence of the bedwetting.

Conclusions: The case report of a ten year old boy who is dealing with a history of nocturnal enuresis is presented. Chiropractic evaluation and care is presented with subluxations noted and adjusted. A decrease in severity and frequency of enuresis was noted. While more studies need to be performed, chiropractic care appears to be beneficial in the effects on nocturnal enuresis in children and adolescents.
