ACUPUNCTURE & CHILDHOOD ENURESIS

A study carried out in a Romanian hospital for severely handicapped children aged between 3 and 18 years showed significant benefit in treating nocturnal enuresis in 29% of patients. The most responsive group was the 10-14 year olds (50%). Children with the most severe mental retardation and those with daytime fecal and urinary incontinence responded least. Points selected were Guanyuan REN-4, Sanyinjiao SP-6, Zusanli ST-36, Shenshu BL-23, Pangguangshu BL-28 and Ciliao BL-32. Additional points were needled in difficult cases. Treatment was given 3 or 4 times a week for a total of approximately 20 treatments (Acupuncture in Medicine, December 1999, Vol 17 (2), 82-85).
