Nocturnal enuresis and bed wetting

A recent study made some links between the development of equilibrium strategies and nocturnal enuresis.

What was noticed was that the children that suffer from enuresis also present with postural imbalances.

In a study, 171 children were recruited. 111 of them suffered from enuresis. 60 did not. We analyzed their equilibrium and their posture.

What was found was that the children that suffered from enuresis were unstable and their pelvis showed more tilted forward.

A hypothesis that comes to mind is that the motor aspect of the nervous system depends on the maturity of the central nervous system. We can therefore think that the same can apply for the autonomic component of the system. Is it possible that sphincter control is more difficult in children that suffer from postural imbalances and from being unstable?
