Colicky Baby In Fort Collins

colicky baby

Colicky babies make for sleepless nights and restless days, and can lead desperate parents to find a solution to soothe their child. While crying is natural for babies, endless crying can point to an underlying issue. There are many traditional remedies for colic, but when these fail to help, Advanced Healthcare is here for you. Our Fort Collins pediatric chiropractors have success treating colicky babies who are suffering from headaches, neck, or back pain.

What Causes Colic?

For many years, medical professionals believed that infantile colic was the result of indigestion. Occasionally that is the cause, but often times colic is the result of a nervous system problem, rather than a digestive one. Colic is characterized by uncontrollable and unexplainable crying which lasts for more than three hours a day, and continues for multiple days or weeks. When faced with this situation, and growing levels of exhaustion, parents can find relief for their colicky baby through pediatric chiropractic care in Fort Collins.

How Can Chiropractic Care Help?

Many chiropractors find, after performing manual examinations, that most infants have some form of spinal abnormality. This is not surprising considering the force and strain that an infant undergoes during the birthing process (whether natural or cesarean). The clamps and vacuums used to aid in these deliveries can also cause spinal subluxations (misalignments), which can affect the nervous system and result in colic.

To resolve these misalignments that may be causing colic, a pediatric chiropractor from Advanced Healthcare in Fort Collins can use very gentle adjustments on your infant. These adjustments restore the spine to proper alignment, so that your baby’s nervous system can have optimal performance. Chiropractic adjustments can actually increase an infant’s capacity for breastfeeding, allow for greater comfort so the child cries less, and decreases the child’s chances of developing allergies, colds, ADHD, ear infections, and asthma.
