Infantile colic is a common problem in newborns, which is “unexplainable and uncontrollable” crying form 0 to 3 months old. Crying is hourly, afternoon, evenings, daily and never seems to stop.

During the birth process, pressure is placed on the skull and neck. In addition, forceps deliveries can put undue strain on the newborn’s neck. With a chiropractic examination we can often find “subluxations” in the baby’s upper neck.

In a South African study by Mercer and Cook, 30 infants diagnosed with colic were randomly divided into 2 groups. One group received chiropractic care while the other didn’t. Within a 2-week period, the babies seeking chiropractic care saw a complete resolution in 93% of the infants.

Can Chiropractic Care Help?

Remember chiropractic is neither a “cure” nor “treatment” for colic. If we find “subluxations’, these interfere with the nervous system which may lead to uncontrollable crying. Very safe, gentle movements of the spine can reduce this abnormal pressure on the nerves, easing or even eliminating these “colic” symptoms.
