Infant Colic and Chiropractic
The constant crying of a newborn baby can be very distressful. Previously, colic was thought to simply be indigestion. However, now colic can be defined as, “unexplainable and uncontrollable crying in babies from zero to three months old. If it continues for more than 3 hours a day, and more than 3 days a week for 3 weeks or more, it is considered the diagnosis for Colic. This condition usually occurs in the afternoon and evening hours.” There can be several reasons for a baby’s consistent crying. Therefore, it would be in the best interest of all to seek the assistance of a medical professional.
Often, during a routine check-up, a Chiropractor will find spinal distortions in the neck and upper back area that may be painful for the baby. This can be especially common in the case of a difficult child-birth. Studies have shown over the years that very gentle spinal adjustments/mobilizations can decrease the crying in babies by a significant amount. Since babies lack the ability to indicate that something can be severely wrong, when a baby cries, this can signal a desperate ‘cry’ for help. That is why it is so important to look for professional help!
I have my life back!
"I have suffered with sciatica issues my entire life and worsened when I was pregnant. The severity was intense. I saw a general practitioner but had poor results. I found Dr. Rosenfeld through my insurance company and looked her up on the internet. I have had excellent results… I have my life back! Thank you from the bottom of my heart and back!"
