Natural Colic Relief Treatment for Your Baby in Lakewood, Wheat Ridge and Edgewater
Scientists rate “colicky baby crying” as one of the most distressing sounds humans experience. For parents, few things make them feel more powerless than being unable to provide relief for their baby’s pain. If your baby has colic and you are at your wits end, please schedule an appointment with your Well Beings Chiropractic Family Health pediatric chiropractor in Lakewood, Edgewater and Wheat Ridge now. Chiropractic care is one of the most effective natural colic treatment options available.
Symptoms of Colic
About 10 to 20 percent of babies exhibit the out-of-control crying, balled fists and apparent abdominal discomfort of colic. All babies will cry at some point, but to be diagnosed with colic officially, a baby will exhibit these crying bouts for three hours a day, going on at least three weeks. Because babies can’t talk, it’s hard for doctors to pinpoint the source of colic. In some cases, it seems related to acid reflux in babies, but again, there is no conclusive evidence on this.
And although babies usually grow out of this distressing colicky stage in a few weeks to a few months, the lost sleep suffered by both baby and parents can cause other physical and mental health and wellness problems.
Pediatric Chiropractic Care Helps Colicky Babies
The good news is that pediatric chiropractic care has a great track record as one of the most effective natural colic treatment options. Two separate studies published in The Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics showed that between 67 and 94 percent of babies who received pediatric chiropractic care experienced significant colic relief, as opposed to a 38 percent improvement in babies given dimethicone anti-gas medication.
Our chiropractor provides extremely gentle finger pressure adjustments to a baby’s spine, correcting common spinal misalignments that may have occurred during childbirth. This allows the baby’s nervous system to properly communicate and relieve reflux, back pain, neck pain, headaches or other types of pain that may be causing your baby’s discomfort.
