Your child can get relief from colic.
If you have a colicky baby, and other forms of treatment don’t seem to be helping very much, you may want to investigate taking your baby to a chiropractor. Caring for a newborn can be a challenge, and this challenge is increased if the baby has colic.
As your child is being born, the neck and back vertebrae can go out of alignment due to the stretching and compressing of the body as it emerges into the world. If your delivery included a prolonged pushing stage, forceps or vacuum extraction, or other form of assisted delivery, the chances of a misalignment are great.
Misalignments in the spine can compromise the function of major systems in the body. The digestive system can be affected and ineffective digestion of breastmilk and formula can cause major discomfort in your baby, leading to colic episodes.
Many parents are wary of taking their small, helpless babies to see a chiropractor. The main reason being the “Snap, Crackle and Pop” stereotype that chiropractic invokes.
In actuality, the adjustments that a chiropractor will do on your baby is basically applying gently pressure with the finger to areas on the neck and back. You may see your baby totally relax before your eyes as the misalignments are corrected.
