Colic Treatment

colic treatment

Many newborn babies suffer from colic which causes unusual amounts of crying in babies between the ages of 3 weeks and 3 months. Babies with colic may appear to be in pain, because they often turn red and draw in their legs and arms when crying. Although the cause of colic is unknown, gentle chiropractic techniques have helped many newborn babies find relief from colic.

The traumatic birthing process can cause subluxation and stress on the nervous system. With gentle chiropractic adjustments, it can help to correct subluxation and relieve any stress on the spine. These chiropractic techniques often help the baby to calm down and find pain relief. In additional to gentle chiropractic techniques, your chiropractor may recommend diet changes for the baby.

Some of the following at-home treatments may help your baby with colic:

  • Give your baby a warm bath
  • Gently rub your baby’s tummy
  • Rock your baby
  • Go for a drive
  • Avoid soy or dairy-based formulas
  • Place a warm water bottle on your baby’s stomach
