Urinary incontinence occurs when someone loses control of their bladder. It’s common, but it’s also embarrassing. In many cases, nothing more than a dietary or lifestyle change is enough to prevent accidents. But further treatment is needed in other cases, and chiropractic adjustment can help.

The stress that pregnancy and delivery put on a woman’s body is one of the most common reasons people develop incontinence. Chiropractic care is one of the best options for preparing your body for labor and delivery and dealing with the aftermath of birth.
Chiropractic care can effectively manage incontinence because spinal health is important to your overall health. The better your spinal health, the better your body's overall function.
Incontinence is sometimes linked to pressure on your spinal cord. It can also cause lower back pain. And because your bladder muscles are controlled by your central nervous system (CNS), the work a chiropractor does can remove interference and miscommunication between your brain and your urinary system.
A chiropractor fixes subluxations that cause incontinence. Adjustments restore body function and restore alignment through spinal manipulation.
One case study involving 21 people of all ages showed improved bladder control following chiropractic treatments. About half of the participants regained complete control of their leaky bladder.
Another study involving just over a dozen patients receiving consistent chiropractic treatments for two months reduced nightly trips to the bathroom from approximately four per night to only one.
