Acupuncture Treatment for Bed Wetting (near Andover, MN)
Does Your Child Wet the Bed?
If your child wets the bed at night, it may be getting in the way of your child’s social development. Your child may avoid going to sleep-overs. Spending a night at a friend’s house or going to camp are a big part of growing up and socialization for a child. However, to a bed wetter, this fun part of childhood can cause unnecessary worry and anxiety.
Acupuncture is good at treating bed wetting.
Acupuncture treats the symptom of bed wetting and the root cause of it at the same time in Anoka, MN.
Your licensed acupuncturist may also go over food and lifestyle in your child’s first visit. Diet is important, as it may influence bed wetting according to Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM).
What You Can Do
Never scold or ridicule your child for this problem, especially in front of others.
The most important thing to remember about your child’s bed wetting problem, is to be patient and loving with your child. Never scold or ridicule your child for this problem, especially in front of others. Your child has no control over bed-wetting and is not doing it on purpose.
When to call a Doctor
If bed-wetting continues past age seven
If the problem stops, only to start-up again months later
If your child is experiencing urological issues such as painful, burning urination or overactive bladder
Visit your child’s Pediatrician or Primary Care Physician when in doubt. Approximately 1% of bed-wetting involves a neurological issue and most children outgrow bed-wetting by age seven.
