Nocturnal Enuresis also known as “bedwetting” is a condition defined as having involuntary urination during sleep affecting an estimated 5-7 million children in the United States. Wetting the bed creates a host of issues, concerns, and emotions beyond just a mess that needs to be cleaned. Dr. Kaminsky offers a Bedwetting Therapy that’s founded in both his areas expertise, Cranisosacral Therapy and Chiropractic care, resulting in an excellent treatment option for childhood bed-wetting.
Bedwetting commonly occurs as a result of the child not being able to hold their urine through the night and / or not waking when his or her bladder is full at night. Other causes may be physiological, such as the child producing a lot of urine during the evening and nighttime hours. Children who wet the bed often may also have the habit of holding it during the day and ignoring the urge to use the bathroom.
Treatment for bedwetting ranges from the “wait it out” approach to pharmaceutical intervention. While waiting for the child to mature or outgrow the problem is a popular approach, it can lead to issues with self-confidence, hygiene concerns, and other problems. While there is no exact known cause of bedwetting, alternative medicine practitioners believe it is a result of abnormal nervous system, poor sleep patterns, and possible hormone imbalance. Dr. Kaminsky’s Bedwetting Therapy focuses on non-invasive treatment of the whole person, including the spine..
Unless a child has a clear problem or complaint it can be difficult for a parent to recognize when a child’s spine is not working correctly. Many are initially surprised to learn Bedwetting can indicate spinal compromises, but then realize the link to spinal dysfunction once it’s understood the bladder is controlled by the central nervous system, (spine / spinal cord). A spinal misalignment can have an adverse effect on the nerves that flow from the spine out to every part of the body. This can translate into interference of the nervous system, the link between the brain, spinal cord and bladder, which is critical if the bladder is going to function properly.
It’s important to be aware that often spinal misalignments will not necessarily result in immediate pain or symptoms, and may not become evident for several years. In addition to physical stress, parents should be aware that emotional and chemical stress affect the child’s nervous system and may also warrant a spinal check up in exploring a treatment for bedwetting. In sum, Dr. Kaminsky’s Bedwetting Therapy starts from the point of discerning if a spinal misalignment and or nervous system irregularity may be the underlying cause for your child’s bedwetting.
Parents should be mindful within the spine the central nervous system is heavily influenced by the craniosacral system and the craniosacral mechanism itself, which is made of the membranes and fluid that surround, protect and nourish the brain and spinal cord.
During the examination on the initial visit, Dr. Kaminsky looks for areas of the body that feel guarded / tense or functionally and structurally compromised. By using an extremely light hands-on touch during a treatment session, Dr. Kaminksy looks to release that restriction / tension in order to get the fluids surrounding the head and spine flowing freely again, positively effecting the nervous system. Dr. Kaminsky’s Bedwetting Therapy is founded in theory, experience and practice, soothing the central nervous system and promoting a general sense of ease in the body resulting in the ability to monitor and control more consciously the bladder. As both a Craniosacral Therapist and a Chiropractor, Dr. Kaminsky has received years of advanced training to understand the complexity of the nervous system and how it functions.

About Dr. Kaminsky & Craniosacral Therapy
Having a Chiropractic background since the year 2000, Dr. Kaminsky offers many methods of treatment with an emphasis on Craniosacral Therapy and Pranic Healing in NYC.
Craniosacral Therapy (CST) is a method focusing on the link between the cranium (head) and sacrum (the second to last bone at the base of your spine), scientifically proven to work in unison to pump fluid throughout the body, an unknown disruption of which can cause many health issues. The craniosacral mechanism pumps vital fluid called cerebro-spinal fluid (CSF) through the body and in a sense energetically lubricates the joints, tissues, organs; basically all cells of the body. It is the driving force of all your body’s systems of function; including maintaining the tone of your muscles.
The Central Nervous System (brain and spinal cord) are surrounded with CSF generating energetic rhythmic impulses of fluid delicately pumping throughout your body’s parts “breathing” the movement of life. This measurable rhythm of moving fluid, like the heart rhythm, pulse rhythm, breathing rhythm is the foundational “blueprint” and primary principle of our real-time state of our health.
Compromises of our rhythmic movements of fluid flow correlates to the impulse restrictions in the system which the body is unable to overcome or self-correct. This is the reason why we have “dis-ease”, symptoms, conditions, basically all ailments. This is where the skill of an experienced craniosacral therapist becomes valuable. By placing his or her hands on your body the practitioner can feel, detect, evaluate, and facilitate correction of these restrictive arrhythmic impulses.
The craniosacral therapist helps your rhythm restore and renew in compromised areas allowing for healing to take place of sensory, motor, musculoskeletal, neurological disorders, symptoms, conditions and pain.
