Does Your Baby Have Colic?

chiropractic care for colicky babies

Do you have a colicky baby in Austin? When adults and kids have a headache, neck pain or back pain they talk about it and complain about it. When a baby has a headache, neck pain or back pain they can’t complain about it or talk about it so they cry. Many parents have said at least once that they don’t know why their baby is crying. They said they have tried everything, but did they try a Austin pediatric chiropractor?


Is it…Indigestion?

At one time infantile colic was thought to be a result of the child having indigestion. Today, infantile colic is described as “unexplainable and uncontrollable crying in babies from 0 to 3 months old, occurring more than 3 hours a day, 3 days a week for 3 weeks or more, generally occurring in the late afternoon or evening”. Now, as a parent, is that an acceptable answer from a doctor that is supposed to be an expert on babies?


Colic in Austin

A study published in the German medical journal “Manual Medicine” involved a group of 1258 babies who had their spines examined by two medical doctors within 5 days of birth. Of this group 211 suffered from vomiting, hyperactivity, or sleeplessness. Manual examination of the babies revealed spinal abnormalities in 95% of the group. It is a chiropractor’s pleasure to help your baby grow naturally and properly. When a doctor is performing a cesarean delivery, it is estimated that the baby is removed with between 50-88 pounds of force. There are also chances that clamps or a vacuum might be used to assist in delivery. Now I want you to imagine what this experience might feel like and how your head and neck might feel after?

If a child has a subluxation then there is a great chance that it is interfering with your child’s natural function and causing discomfort or even pain. A light chiropractic adjustment to clear up a subluxation helps the body heal and restore proper nervous system function. As a result, not only will your child(ren) breastfeed better they may cry less due to the lack of present subluxations. They are also at a decreased risk for allergies, ADD/ADHD, colds, flus, ear infections, asthma and delayed development. Chiropractic care for your child in Austin can make a world of difference in their life and yours.
