Colic in Blue Bell and Spring House

425x425 placeholderColic is a constant, unrelenting crying. It can begin at birth but typically peaks between 3 and 6 weeks of age. It can be distressing for both infants and parents, causing prolonged periods of crying and discomfort along with sleepless nights, frustration, and a feeling of helplessness in parents.

Seeing your child in constant discomfort is hard for any parent to deal with. At Community Chiropractic Center, we offer gentle chiropractic care to help relieve children suffering from colic.

Commonly Seen Symptoms of Colic

If the child displays any of the following, it could be time to visit Community Chiropractic Center

  • Excessive crying that may begin at the same time of day each day
  • Tensed abs and legs (from excessive crying)
  • Usually begins when the baby is several weeks old and generally lasts several months
  • The infant is usually healthy otherwise
  • The baby may pull its legs up to its chest, tighten its abdominal muscles, or clench its fists; the infant’s face may be contorted or red

Our Natural Approach to Relief

There’s no known definitive cause for colic, but many medical professionals believe there is a connection to a digestive issue.

Our approach doesn’t treat colic directly, but our process helps the body function better by focusing on removing tension from the nervous system through gentle, low-force chiropractic techniques specifically designed for infants and children. By evaluating and restoring proper alignment and mobility, we help alleviate stress on the nervous system, allowing it to function optimally.

Some reasons why chiropractic gets good results include:

  • Our doctors are trained to identify and remove a child’s spinal subluxations, a safe, gentle, and effective strategy to reduce symptoms of colic
  • Correcting spinal dysfunction reduces irritation to the child’s nervous system to resolve colic symptoms in an otherwise healthy infant
  • Our chiropractors provide parents with advice on nutrition, supplementation, and infant ergonomics to support the child’s growing body
  • Chiropractors address the underlying cause of your baby’s colic; they don’t just treat symptoms
  • Our chiropractic adjustments are safe and natural, even for infants! Our focus is on natural, drug-free solutions to support the body’s innate ability to heal and function properly
