Does Your Baby Have Colic?

colicky baby

If your baby is colicky, then sleepless nights and restless days may have you feeling desperate for a solution. Crying is natural and almost all babies do it, but when something is not right the crying can be ceaseless. The lack of sleep and peace take a toll on a parent's ability to feel sane. Watching a baby suffer is one of the hardest things in the world – actually, it's the hardest. Perhaps you have tried traditional remedies to soothe your child and nothing seems to be helping. Have you considered the possibility that a headache, neck or back pain may be causing your child to cry? Kent chiropractors are having success treating colicky babies, and this article explains why and how they are doing this.


Colic in Kent

At one time infantile colic was thought to be the result of indigestion. Occasionally it is, but more often it is not a digestive issue and colic will not respond to remedies aimed at soothing the stomach. Today, 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. The words “unexplainable” and “uncontrollable” leave parents feeling helpless to find anything to soothe their child, and to keep themselves healthy while dealing this exhausting issue. If this is you or someone you know, don't give up hope!

Through manual examinations chiropractors have found that a large majority of infants have spinal abnormalities. This is unsurprising given that an infant experiences an incredible amount of force and strain during the process of both natural and Cesarean delivery. Furthermore, the use of clamps and vacuums can easily lead to subluxations (spinal misalignment). Misalignments in the spine may be irritating your baby’s nervous system and causing the colic.


How Can Chiropractic Care Help?

Even a very gentle chiropractic adjustment can clear up major subluxations in an infant. Sometimes, it will take several treatments to restore the alignment of the spine and ensure healthy development is on track. A properly aligned spine restores the nervous system to its optimal function, allowing the body to heal and thrive.

Many people have observed that even after a minor adjustment, their child's capacity for breastfeeding is increased, and they cry less because they are more comfortable. Once the child's nervous system is fully functioning, they are at a decreased risk for allergies, ADD/ADHD, colds, flus, ear infections, asthma and delayed development.
