by Administrator 4. April 2011 06:59

Bed wetting is certainly a common trouble for millions of kids and pre-teens all over the world. This problem is clinically called as "nocturnal enuresis". Bed wetting is usually as embarrassing as it is troublesome. People try out all kinds of methods in order to get rid of this issue. And yet there may be a simpler method to cure it than you might realize. This is when Chiropractics come in to help you; chiropractic therapy is a modern manipulation therapy that aims at general wellness and can get rid of some of the most common medical problems. 

The Reasons Why Kids Wet Their Bed:

It is all related to the phrenic reflex. Here is what happens to our body while sleeping: During the time we sleep, our breathing process slows down until the body's carbon dioxide levels go up high enough to actuate an instant shudder. This shudder is actually the phrenic reflex, which happens to be a spinal reflex also. Then one takes a nice deep breath, and starts breathing regularly once again. 

If the phrenic reflex is not working properly, nevertheless, rather than actuating a shudder, eminent carbon dioxide levels in the body will make the smooth muscles to loosen up. These involuntary muscles comprise of a valve at the end of the urinary bladder. In this instance, any fluid in the bladder is expelled, and the bed turns wet. 

How Can Chiropractors Help You In This? 

If the phrenic reflex is plainly underdeveloped or not yet grown, time could be the only aid. Yet often the reflex is completely developed, but it is just blocked by a vertebral misalignment cognized as subluxation. This out-of-place vertebra poses pressure on the spine and holds it from correctly responding to the usual sleeping processes. 

Chiropractic care can assist in determining whether or not your kid has a misalignment, and possibly even help your kid curb bed-wetting for good by manipulating the spine back on to the correct position.
