Colic

When a child cries for an extended period of time but is well-fed, rested, and comfortable, there’s a chance they may suffer from colic. Colic is defined by extended crying for a set period of time, which most doctors define as greater than three hours a day, three days a week, and more than three weeks in a row.

Try Chiropractic to Improve Colic!

The contorting of the muscles and bones during the birth process can throw off alignment, potentially making an infant more susceptible to disease and sickness. A very gentle and soothing chiropractic adjustment can be provided as soon as the first day of birth.

In a study involving infants with colic, infants who received chiropractic care had a 2.7-hour reduction in crying time, while those who received a prescription drug decreased their crying time by only 1 hour. In another study, 93% of infants who received chiropractic care saw a significant change within two weeks.
