At the beginning of December we began a trial of Chiropractic care for a bed wetting (nocturnal enuresis) patient. We treated almost every night for 2 weeks and then reduced the frequency of treatments to 2-3 per week for 2 weeks. The Patient had 2 episodes of bed wetting during that time, when prior there had been 5-7 wet nights. The week between Christmas and New Years Day was crazy and treatment was not rendered. During that time and until Friday the 2nd of January there were no occurrences. Then from the 2nd to the 7th the bed was wet every night. Last night her chiropractor remembered the trial and adjusted listings found in the Lumbar spine. She woke this morning dry.
It looks like we may need to taper the treatment rather than stopping suddenly, through forgetfulness. I cannot say difinitively that this was not the natural history or that some other event did not cause this, however, it does appear, at least in this case study, that Lumbar Chiropractic Manipulative Therapy may have been effective in reducing incidence of nocturnal enuresis.
