Abstract/Notes

OBJECTIVE: To discuss a patient with primary nocturnal enuresis whose symptoms resolved following manipulation.

CLINICAL FEATURES: An 8-yr-old boy with a history of primary functional nocturnal enuresis was under care at this office. The patient's clinical examination was benign. He had several areas of lumbar segmental dysfunction. The patient's medical history was unremarkable except for childhood asthma.

INTERVENTION AND OUTCOME: The patient's lumbar spine was manipulated once, and at a 1 month follow-up there was complete resolution of enuresis. The patient had several recurrences of bed-wetting, all of which were associated with minor injury to the lower back. The patient responded positively to subsequent manipulation.

CONCLUSION: This patient's enuresis resolved with the use of manipulation. This happened in a manner that could not be attributed to time or placebo effect.
