Nocturnal enuresis constitutes vital social problem, concerning approx. 16.1% five-year-olds and decreasing with age to 2.2 % in the group of nineteen-year-olds(source)1. Due to the limited efficiency of drug therapy, parents of children suffering from nocturnal enuresis search for alternative solutions and acupuncture is one of them.

In 2013 Egyptian physicians published their findings obtained from the group of 50 children(source)2. Acupuncture was applied in two series, 10 days each.  Children were examined every three months. After half a year, 78% children recovered and 18% showed improvement. In case of 12 children the therapy was repeated. After a year, 92% patients recovered.

Researchers associated in [dt_tooltip title=”Cochrane’s Collaboration”]Independent organisation, critically examining the available treatments[/dt_tooltip] published, in 2011, the report summarizing the clinical findings, available by that time (source)3 concerning the efficiency of various complementary forms of treatment applied in nocturnal enuresis. On completion of data analysis, the authors discovered there was the evidence of acupuncture efficiency in treating nocturnal enuresis, however still weak therefore requiring further research.
