The Spine Is the Key
Your baby’s nervous system, which is housed in the spine, can become irritated during the course of the birth process. During this process, a baby’s body is experiencing great amounts of pressure. In some of the more difficult births, the use of forceps may be necessary which heightens the pressure put on the baby’s body. The bones within the neck and spine can easily become misaligned which puts pressure on the nervous system. When pressure is placed on this system, the messages that are sent from the brain to the rest of the body can become intercepted or interrupted. This can cause various parts of the body to not function as properly as they were intended to.
There is much discussion about what the actual cause of colic is, however, chiropractic care has been effective for some parents helping their baby’s to find relief from their symptoms.
