Intervention and Outcomes: The framework of detection and removal of spinal subluxations using Activator Methods and Torque Release Technique was applied at twice per week for a total of 5 patient visits. Improvement in the patient’s nocturnal enuresis was observed following 2 visits that continued with follow-up care and observation.
Conclusions: This case report provides supporting evidence that patients with nocturnal enuresis may benefit from chiropractic care.
