Chiropractic is proven effective in relieving infantile colic
We all know newborns cry as a way of communicating their needs. But what about when those needs all seem to be met and yet your little one is still inconsolable? If your baby is crying uncontrollably for more than three hours a day, more than three days a week, for more than three weeks straight, it may be colic.
Although colic is common, it doesn’t make it any easier to cope. Persistent crying is uncomfortable for babies and can be quite stressful for parents. While originally thought to be caused by indigestion, consider the trauma of birth another explanation: examinations of colicky babies often reveal cranial and spinal distortions that result in subluxations and manifest as colic.
