Does your baby cry excessively for no apparent reason? They may have a condition known as colic, it is estimated that 5-25% of infants experience these symptoms. There are many reasons a baby may experience colic such as hormonal imbalances, upset stomach, unbalanced gut flora, infantile headaches, spinal misalignment and more.  Medication is proven to be ineffective and people are searching for an answer to their and their baby’s stress. Luckily, chiropractic care can make a difference! If you or someone you know has an infant suffering from colic, let them know we are here to help.

The nervous system controls every cell, organ and organ system in the body. By getting your child adjusted, we can help the body and everything in it function at its best no matter where the problem lies. The nerves in the neck go to the brain and the center of hormone release and the nerves in the back go to the stomach and gut. These are just a few areas of the body that may be affected by colic. Call today and schedule an appointment for your child!

 

A note from one of our practice members:

 

“My first child cried constantly. I was going through a divorce and was crumbling under the stress. I brought her to the chiropractor, desperate for help. It was a miracle. She fell asleep on the way home from her first adjustment. I’ve been bringing her ever since.”

-Ann, 29
