How an All-Natural Approach Has Helped Thousands of Teenagers
Chiropractors have helped thousands of teen bedwetting cases. If that sounds strange or hard to believe, you must read on!
Here’s how today’s safe and natural chiropractic care addresses bedwetting teenagers and even those who are younger.
Hope For Your Teenager Starts Here
The chiropractors who sponsor this site are often asked, “How can the spinal column have anything to do with night time bedwetting?”
The answer makes total sense. But first a quick refresher on human anatomy.
The nervous system, consisting of the brain, spinal cord and all the nerves of the body, control and regulate every cell, tissue and organ of the body. (Even the muscles that control your teen’s bladder.)
The nervous system is so important, the most critical parts are protected by bone. The skull protects the brain. And 24 moving bones of the spinal column protect the spinal cord.
And that’s where it gets interesting…
Is the Lumbar Spine Involved?If individual bones of the spinal column (in the case of your bedwetting teen, the lumbar area) become misaligned, rotated or shifted out of position, the spinal cord and the pairs of nerve roots that emerge from between each spinal bone may be affected.
There can be just enough irritation or nerve interference to disturb essential brain-to-body communications. Pain may not even be present.
Nocturnal enuresis or nighttime urinary incontinence. A fancy name for wetting the bed in the middle of the night.
Addressing the Underlying Cause of Bedwetting
Interestingly, chiropractors don’t treat or cure bedwetting. At least not in the traditional sense. Instead, they look for areas of the spine producing nervous system compromise. Then they use precise chiropractic adjustments to restore more normal motion and position of involved spinal bones.
After a series of visits and the affected spinal bones assume a more normal position, nerve interference is reduced and symptoms usually resolve. Naturally. No drugs. No surgery. And no more bedwetting alarms!
“But My Child Doesn’t Have a Bad Back!”When people think of chiropractic, they often think of an older person with back pain or headaches. So, why would a youngster see a chiropractor?

Since a youngster’s body is so adaptive, they can usually accommodate the slips and falls, stumbles and tumbles that occur in childhood.
Until they can’t.
Imagine the physical trauma of learning to walk, ride a bike or from playing youth sports. These insults can produce spinal distortions. And let’s not forget the most traumatic thing of all: the birth process!
So while your child probably doesn’t have a “bad back” like an older adult, the nerve-rich spinal column is the first place to look when a portion of the body isn’t working as it should.
Taking Your Teenager to the Chiropractor
When you call one of the Choose Natural chiropractors who sponsor this site, what can you expect?
In a word, hope.
You and your teen will enjoy the highest level of respect, compassion and confidentiality. After the brief paperwork, you’ll meet the chiropractor for a private consultation. “When did it start?” “What methods have you tried?” “Have there been any recent physical traumas?”
Common sense, but important.
If it appears your teenager is a good candidate for chiropractic care, a thorough examination will be conducted. This is designed to determine if there is nervous system involvement and if so, its precise location.
“I Love Chiropractic Adjustments!”You and your teen will receive a complete report explaining what your chiropractor found. Plus, you’ll receive recommendations for a series of chiropractic adjustments whose purpose is to restore nervous system integrity.
The chiropractor will use his or her hands (or instrument) to direct just the right amount of energy needed to “nudge” the wayward spinal bone(s) back into a more normal position.
It surprises many that adjustments actually feel great.
Because if they didn’t, chiropractors would be unable to get patients to return for the repeated visits necessary to retrain supporting muscles and ligaments of the spine and produce lasting spinal changes.
How Long Will It Take For Bedwetting to Stop?
Because your chiropractor is relying on the healing potential of your teenager’s body, it’s difficult to predict specific time frames when bedwetting will stop.Some teens show improvement quickly. Sometimes after only a week or two of regular visits. Others take longer to respond, requiring a dozen or more visits. Everyone responds differently.
Maybe you’ve heard the myth that “once you go to a chiropractor you have to go for the rest of your life.” It’s not true.
Sure, some people decide to visit a chiropractor on a regular basis—like regular brushing and flossing. But how long you choose to benefit from chiropractic care is always up to you.
Take action now! Call a sponsoring chiropractor near you today and end the suffering and embarrassment.

A Former Teen Bedwetter’s Own Story
For as long as I can remember, I wet the bed. Sometimes it happened many nights in a row; other times there would be a few dry nights and I’d breathe a sigh of relief – maybe the nightmare was finally over. But, it never was.
I couldn’t join the Boy Scouts because they had sleep away camping trips and I’d be afraid to fall asleep, or if I did – what would happen if I wet my sleeping bag? Kids at school often steered clear of me because they said I smelled. I had very few friends, my grades were mediocre and I spent most of my time in my room.
My parents thought I was lazy at first, but the pediatrician told them that bedwetting in boys especially was more common than they realized and that most children eventually outgrew it. I didn’t. Then my parents bought a bedwetting alarm. It worked for awhile, but soon after, I was sleeping through that as well… and wetting the bed.
I was depressed, alone and lonely. There were times I wondered how I could even go on if this was going to be my life. Guys my age were supposed to be dating and having fun. Most of them were, but not me.
Finally, my mother saw an article on chiropractic care for bedwetters. After trying everything else, including oversized diapers that I refused to wear, she took me to see Dr. Joe.
Dr. Joe asked me if I remembered having any serious falls or injuries. I didn’t but my Mom did. I had fallen off the bed numerous times as a baby and my Dad had me in the car when he had an accident – I was only a year old, so, of course, I didn’t remember it.
Dr. Joe explained that falls, accidents and injuries could cause misalignments in your spine and that these misalignments sure could mess up your central nervous system, leaving you wide open for disease and other conditions. He said that those falls and that accident might be the cause of my bedwetting. Wow…finally a reason!
After only two adjustments, I started to notice a change. I wasn’t wetting the bed as frequently. Maybe chiropractic really was the answer to my prayers!
Six months later, I am no longer a bedwetting teen. I feel more confident and my whole outlook has changed. My only regret is that my Mom didn’t discovered this solution sooner. I hope this helps another bedwetting teen realize that there is an answer, and it’s inside of you. You just need a chiropractor to help you unlock the door to true health!
