Chiropractors are not interested in a temporary solution, they are interested in treating your baby. The science is clear - regular chiropractic care can treat colic.
Chiropractors will rely on their expertise to adjust your baby’s spinal column. When the spine is aligned, your baby’s spinal nerves are able to relax and function without pain. This results in a spine that can relax without discomfort.
A misalignment of any degree is enough to throw your baby’s body out of balance, this leads to a breakdown in communication between the spine and the brain. The source of the breakdown in communication is usually from the often stressful birthing process. For the baby to begin life it must squeeze through the birthing canal and at this time many misalignments can occur in the baby’s body. The symptoms of colic are simply your baby’s body letting you know it is under pressure and needs help. Luckily, chiropractors are able to solve the problem through safe, natural adjustments to their spine.
