Many people dismiss chiropractic as being something only for back pain, but chiropractic treatment can be used to treat a wide variety of physical issues, such as migraines and headaches, chronic pain, carpal tunnel, pain due to injury or muscle strain, and much more.

Does Your Baby Have Colic?

many people take their colicky babies to a chiropractic office

Do you have a colicky baby? When adults and kids have a headache, neck pain, or back pain they talk about it and complain about it. When a baby has a headache, neck pain, or back pain they can’t complain about it or talk about it so they cry. Crying is natural, but most parents instinctively know when their baby is crying more than they should be. Our Kansas City chiropractic clinic can help provide you with the Colic information you need.


Colic in Kansas City

At one time infantile colic was thought to be a result of the child having indigestion. Today, infantile colic is described as “unexplainable and uncontrollable crying in babies from 0 to 3 months old, occurring more than 3 hours a day, 3 days a week for 3 weeks or more, generally occurring in the late afternoon or evening”.

A study published in the German medical journal “Manual Medicine” involved a group of 1,258 babies who had their spines examined by two medical doctors within 5 days of birth. Of this group 211 suffered from vomiting, hyperactivity, or sleeplessness. Manual examination of the babies revealed spinal abnormalities in 95% of the group. Chiropractors are often able to help your baby grow naturally and properly. When a doctor is performing a cesarean delivery, it is estimated that the baby is removed with between 50-88 pounds of force. There are also chances that clamps or a vacuum might be used to assist in delivery. Now I want you to imagine what this experience might feel like, and how your head and neck might feel after?

If a child has a subluxation then there is a great chance that it is interfering with your child’s natural function and causing discomfort or even pain. A light chiropractic adjustment to clear up a subluxation helps the body heal and restore proper nervous system function. As a result, not only will your child(ren) possibly breastfeed better, they may cry less because they are more comfortable. They are also potentially at a decreased risk for allergies, ADD/ADHD, colds, flues, ear infections, asthma, and delayed development if their nervous system is functioning fully. Chiropractic care for your child can make a world of difference in their life and yours.

If you have a baby at home, or a baby on the way, please call us to discuss how you can get your baby prepared for a life of health and wellness.
