Let's talk about bed wetting

Bed wetting (Enuresis) is a big challenge for both children and parents when it persists beyond around 6 years for girls and 7 yrs for boys. Daytime wetting can also cause a lot of issues for 4+ yrs children at preschool or when they first start school or longer.

Bed wetting is mostly a developmental issue although there can be other underlying medical issues which need checking out. The child may also present with other developmental issues such as clumsiness, poor balance, messy handwriting.

Emotional issues can also be present particularly for older children or if it is dealt with as the child’s fault or the child is shamed or disappointed that they are not pleasing their parents/ caregivers by being dry.

This is an area that I often work with in my clinic from a neuro

-developmental and Kinesiology perspective. The issue is often a retained spinal galant reflex.

I came across this interesting website for practical equipment around dealing with bed-wetting.
