three girls laying in bed


When a child experiences nocturnal enuresis every night both the child and the parent suffer. Children are not able to spend the night elsewhere or go to a sleep away camp because they may wet the bed and have to face the shame associated with it. Parents deal with the continual task of changing and washing sheets every day. While many may believe the only solution for this problem is to wait, there is a solution that may be able to help your child. Dr. Tucker, as a Gainesville, FL chiropractor, can realign your child’s spine to reduce bedwetting.

How Chiropractic Treatment Can Help

The sacrum begins as five different pieces. Once reaching puberty, the segments will begin to attach to one another until the mid-20s when all of these segments will be completely fused together. While the segments are separate, they are vulnerable to being shifted. If a child is active or falls repeatedly when learning to walk their spine may become misaligned. This misalignment may cause segments to put pressure on nerves, especially those surrounding the bladder. When this occurs, your child’s bladder will be stimulated at inappropriate times and the bladder will involuntarily release urine.

An experienced Gainesville chiropractor is useful in these scenarios because they can realign the spine and sacrum. Therefore, the segments will no longer put pressure on your child’s bladder and your child can enjoy normal sleeping habits.

Benefits of Chiropractic Care

Children are very active; they are constantly running, jumping and riding bikes. As they learn new skills, they will experience many falls along the way. Small or large misalignments may occur because of various traumas your child may experience. Chiropractic therapy has been sought for symptoms such as trouble sleeping, headaches, colic, chronic ear aches, growing pains and constipation. It may resolve issues in the nervous system and increase the function of the immune system. Gainesville chiropractic treatment is also preventative. It may reduce the likelihood of bone diseases such as osteoarthritis or osteoporosis.

Gentle Chiropractic Treatment

One of the first thoughts that comes to mind when people think of a chiropractor are the loud pops and thrusts. This may seem like a frightening situation to put your kids in. However, the Activator Method provides the same benefits of traditional chiropractic care without the thrusts or twists. It utilizes a device that produces high-speed pulses in a specific location. This allows your Gainesville, FL chiropractor to determine the precise location and amount of pressure used to avoid other more violent techniques.
