Colic

chiropractic-childrenColic is a condition in which an otherwise healthy baby cries or displays symptoms of distress (cramping, moaning, etc) frequently and for extended periods, without any discernible reason. The condition typically appears within the first month of life and often disappears rather suddenly, before the baby is three to four months old, but can last up to 12 months of life. Crying often increases during a specific period of the day, particularly the early evening. Symptoms may worsen soon after feeding, especially in babies that do not belch easily. Colicky babies can be very stressful on their parents.

The medical profession does not have any answers for a colicky baby who is deemed healthy, but your baby is trying to tell you something just isn’t 100% right. Subtle vertebral misalignments can cause great distress for an infant.

A gentle chiropractic evaluation followed by the necessary gentle chiropractic adjustments may be all that is needed to alleviate nerve pressure causing the unknown discomfort in your baby..
