Having a child who suffers from colic can be a frustrating and emotionally painful experience knowing that you are unable to provide relief. Although colic affects approximately 25 percent of infants, medical researchers are not aware of the cause. Fortunately, parents can rely on Chiropractic care to relieve symptoms associated with colic. Contact our Marietta Chiropractors today to schedule treatment for your infant.
The primary feature of colic is intense crying. While all babies cry, the sounds associated with colic are different. Unlike a baby’s usual cry, colic causes infants to make a loud, shrieking cry that may not stop for three or more hours. If left untreated, this condition can occur several times a week for a few months.
Medical experts are still not sure how colic appears, but some believe that the condition stems from stomach and gut sensitivity, whether it’s acid reflux or allergies. Other possible nondigestive concerns are attached to overstimulation and exposure to cigarette smoke.
Chiropractic care is a safe, pain-free solution for treating the symptoms associated with colic. Our Marietta Chiropractors are experienced at determining what underlying conditions exist within the central nervous system and stimulating the body’s natural ability to heal itself. If your Chiropractor identifies the presence of subluxations in your infant’s spinal column, it may be the source of discomfort. Subluxations create significant stress and dysfunction in all areas of your child’s system, including their digestive track.
Our Chiropractors can eliminate these subluxations through manual or spinal adjustments, which are safe to use on an infant and pain-free. Most parents who have their infant treated with Chiropractic care notice improvements in their child’s demeanor after a few sessions. In fact, the Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics reports improvement in 94 percent of all colic cases that are treated with Chiropractic.
