Colic and Chiropractic
Over 1 million babies suffer from colic every year!
If you are a parent of a baby suffering from colic, you are bound to feel frustrated, stressed and helpless. Colic has been a source of great frustration for babies, parents and doctors alike. Colic is more defined by its symptoms than diagnostic findings. The symptoms are described as uncontrollable, relentless crying for hours at a time, at least three days per week in an otherwise healthy child. This crying behavior often lasts for up to three months before the baby seems to grow out of it. It’s enough to drive any parent batty! Parents and family members find it difficult to cope and are hopeful for a solution.
Medical doctors haven’t discovered the cause or solution to this common problem. There are two common theories for the cause: an immature nervous system or an immature digestive system. The medical solution is not promising. Medical recommendations include attempting to sooth the baby and a suggestion to take time for yourself – not very comforting when you’re pulling your hair out.
The solution may be as close as your Wellness Chiropractor who focuses on restoring a healthy nervous system. There are numerous case studies that have been published on the benefits of chiropractic care and colic babies, but the most compelling research is a study that included 316 babies with colic. In this study, 73 chiropractors treated 316 babies with moderate to severe colic. An incredible 94% of the babies demonstrated satisfactory results within 14 days of chiropractic care. 25% showed great improvement with just one treatment! In another study of 132 babies suffering from colic, an amazing 91% of the parents reported improvement within 1 week of care.
If you or someone you love has an infant suffering from colic, be sure to tell them about Wellness Chiropractic. A Wellness Chiropractor can quickly and safely evaluate a child’s nervous system for hidden disturbances. If the child demonstrates a problem, your Wellness Chiropractor may be the solution.
