Abstract


Objective: To describe the successful chiropractic care of a child with nocturnal enuresis and vertebral subluxation.

 

Clinical Features: A 10-year-old female presented for chiropractic care with a history of nocturnal enuresis of 6 years duration that began after a urinary tract infection was treated with multiple courses of antibiotics.

 

Intervention and Outcomes: The framework of detection and removal of spinal subluxations using Activator Methods and Torque Release Technique was applied at twice per week for a total of 5 patient visits. Improvement in the patient’s nocturnal enuresis was observed following 2 visits that continued with follow-up care and observation.

 

Conclusions: This case report provides supporting evidence that patients with nocturnal enuresis may benefit from chiropractic care.

 

Key words: Chiropractic, nocturnal enuresis, vertebral subluxation, adjustment, spinal manipulation
