Colicky Baby in Tacoma?

many people take their colicky babies to a chiropractic office

Babies cry, a LOT, making it hard to determine if your baby is colicky. If your baby is colicky, then your baby’s symptoms might be making you desperate for an answer. Neverending crying might be a reality for you and can cause unhappiness and constant stress on those living with the child. Not only is it hard for you to stay sane, but the sound of terror from your baby is the last thing any parent wishes upon their child. Traditional solutions exist, but don’t always offer a lasting remedy. It is completely possible that headaches, neck, or back pain is causing your child to shriek in pain. Tacoma chiropractors offer some of the most effective care for babies with colic. This article will explain how Proctor Chiropractic has success with treating colicky babies.


Colic Options in Tacoma

Historically, colic was associated with indigestion in babies. Parents then looked to remedies that soothe the stomach which did not work in many situations. Nowadays, infantile colic is known as uncontrollable crying that is persistent and recurring in infants. This does not have to be the case as chiropractic care provides hope for nights that include more than 1-3 hours of sleep.

Chiropractors today find that many infants have spinal abnormalities which can cause problems now and potentially in the future. This is a result of babies undergoing extreme amounts of force and strain during the birthing process. Additionally, the various techniques of delivery can easily cause spinal misalignments due to the bones being composed partially of cartilage at this stage of their lives. The misalignments could be interjecting with the nervous system causing your baby to experience pain and presenting colicky symptoms.


How Can Chiropractic Care at Proctor Chiropractic Help Colicky Baby?

The simple and gentle adjustment from a chiropractor is able to fix extreme subluxations (spinal misalignments) in your child. Multiple treatments are needed in some cases so that your baby can grow up without issues that could hinder their development. Proper adjustments are able to remove the irritation to the nervous system allowing the body to grow without obstruction or pain.

People that have had a chiropractic adjustment performed on their child with colic have typically noticed an increase in breastfeeding capacity and less crying. This is likely due to a relief of the pain associated with colic. Once the child has fully recovered and their body is growing without misalignment, there is a decrease in the risk of developing allergies, ADD/ADHD, flus, ear infections, colds, and asthma.
