Calming Colic with Chiropractic Care in Central Ohio
What is Colic?
Colic is when a child cries for an extended period of time despite being well-fed, rested, and comfortable. Most doctors believe that when a child cries for more than 3 hours a day, 3 days a week, and more than 3 weeks in a row, he/she may be suffering from colic.
Every child can be fussy, but when you are handling a baby with Colic, the frustration can be felt by parents as well. Since a colicky baby is crying continuously for no known medical reason, it is difficult to try and make effective decisions that stop your child’s sobbing. The inability to subdue the tears can strain parents and it is okay to feel stressed by these incidents. We want to help find solutions to put you a little more at ease.
Orr Chiropractic and Your New Baby
After the birth of a new baby, both the parents and child have a lot of growing to do. The contorting of the muscles and bones during the birth process can throw off correct spinal alignment, making an infant more susceptible to discomfort, and then later on possibly leading to sickness and disease. These growing pains are not always severe, but sometimes they cause the child to be uncomfortable as he begins to grow.
When a child is suffering from Colic, it is believed that little can be done to end the crying. Orr Chiropractic believes that there are ways to improve your child’s health safely and naturally to make your child more comfortable in the hopes of settling them down more affectively. In addition, we offer a variety of services that can relax the parents, thus making it less stressful for them to handle a difficult baby.
