Colic

Chiropractic Care and The Treatment of Colic:  Breaux Bridge and Lafayette, Louisiana

treatment for colicThere is nothing that can give a parent more grief than a baby that has colic.  Many parents have been up all night long walking the floor with their babies all because of some gas on the stomach.  Most parents resort to medications to help with the situation.

If you have tried medications or other remedies and have gotten no relief, then maybe you should give a chiropractor a call.  Most people think of calling a chiropractor only when their back or neck hurts but chiropractic treatment can go a step further and help with disorders that are caused or influenced in some way by the central nervous system.

When a child is born, the babies body is put under a lot of distress.  Depending on the difficulty of birth, the functioning of major systems in the body can be compromised.  If the digestive system is affected, then the digestion of breast milk or formula can cause major discomfort in a baby leading to colic episodes.

Some parents are afraid of taking their child to a chiropractor stemming from the fear of the “snap, crackle and pop” stereo type most chiropractors have.  The fact is though that a simple adjustment can bring some relief to your child and ultimately to you too.  n a study involving infants with colic, infants who received chiropractic care had a 2.7-hour reduction in crying time, while those who received a prescription drug decreased their crying time by only 1 hour. In another study, 93% of infants who received chiropractic care saw a significant change within two weeks.

If you have an infant that is suffering with Colic, then give us a call. It may be that a simple adjustment can help your child relax and get the relief it needs.
