Chiropractic Care for Infantile Colic
You’re on cloud nine with your precious bundle of joy at home and everything is going the way you imagined it would and then all of a sudden your baby is crying way more than normal and you can’t seem to figure out why they are crying. Hearing your baby cry uncontrollably is heart breaking and any parent would do anything they could to make their baby happy.
What is colic?
Colic is a term used to describe an infant that has uncontrollable crying episodes that last for more than 3 hours a day, more than 3 times a week and lasts for at least 3 weeks, the 3-3-3 rule.
Scientist have been trying to figure out the cause of colic, but there really is no answer. I think one thing we can agree on is that it isn’t part of the normal development for babies to be crying uncontrollably for hours on end because if that was the case then all babies would be doing it, but that isn’t what we see. Because the cause of Colic is unknown and the reason may vary from infant to infant, the course of treatment that is generally used may not work and or/ may make things worse, which is why Chiropractic care is a great option.
How Can Chiropractic Care Help My Baby With Colic?
More parents now-a-days are seeking holistic health care for keeping their children healthy and Chiropractic care is one of those choices. Chiropractic care is beneficial even when there are no known signs or symptoms because the goal of chiropractic is to remove nerve system stress by correcting misaligned vertebrae and bringing motion back into the spine. So what does that mean for your baby with Colic? Studies have shown that infants who were medically diagnosed with colic by a pediatrician showed improvements in their symptoms after 2 weeks of care with chiropractic when compared to a group of medically diagnosed colic infants who were not receiving chiropractic care. After only two weeks of chiropractic care 93% of infants had a complete resolution in symptoms. A follow up survey completed one month later showed that none of the infants had a recurrence of symptoms
