Colic

Infantile colic is typically described as unexplainable and uncontrollable crying that occurs for more than three hours a day, three days a week, and for three weeks or more.

Through manual examinations, chiropractors have found that many infants with colic have spinal problems.  If you think about the amount of force and strain an infant experiences during the process of both natural and cesarean delivery, this probably won’t come as a surprise to you. Furthermore, the use of clamps and vacuums can easily lead to forces and strains on the newborn’s neck causing pain.

How Can Chiropractic Care Help?

Even a very gentle chiropractic adjustment with the slightest fingertip pressure applied at the correct location can eliminate subluxations in an infant. Sometimes, it may take several treatments to restore the alignment of the spine and stop the colic.

If your baby is suffering from colic and you’re not finding solutions from the traditional medical route, we invite you to call our team at Deutsch Chiropractic Clinic in Watertown.
