Objective: To describe the chiropractic care of a 10-year-old boy experiencing frequent nocturnal enuresis (NE), otherwise known as “bedwetting”.


Clinical Features: The child suffered from long-term regular bedwetting.


Intervention and Outcome: The child received instrument assisted and drop table technique adjustments over a two month period. After four weeks of chiropractic care the child’s bedwetting ceased.


Conclusion:   This case study adds to the growing body of literature that supports a possible link between chiropractic care and improvements in NE. Further research in this field is required to investigate this potential link.
