Bedwetting (cont.)


Certain underlying medical or physical conditions may require surgery.

Other Therapy

Bladder training exercises: These are useful for adults with bedwetting or other types of urinary incontinence. They do not usually work for children. A recent review of complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) therapies (for example, acupuncture, hypnosis, etc.) in bedwetting shows little encouragement for the use of these modalities.
