Colic and Chiropractic Treatment

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.

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.

If the misalignment’s, called vertebral subluxations, are big enough, the functioning of major systems in the body can be compromised. The digestive system can be affected and ineffective digestion of breastmilk and formula can cause major discomfort in your baby, leading to colic episodes.

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 misalignment’s are cdr-h2orrected.

As with selecting any health care provider, you need to ask questions first. In this case, “Have you adjusted other infants?” would be most important. Ask for referrals that you can contact if you are unsure.

Chiropractic care can be very valuable in helping to calm the colic tendencies. Below you will find links to information on using chiropractic to deal with colic. For more information visit http://www.bolingbrookchiropractor.com or google International chiropractic pediatric association
