Chiropractic Care for Colicky Babies

By Donna Stark

One of the hardest things for any new parent is to not be able to comfort their crying newborn. Even the best of parents can become frustrated and frazzled when trying to figure out if their child is uncomfortable, hungry, tired, or in pain. But sometimes, their child's fussiness doesn't come from any of those reasons. Sometimes, the cause of the crying is colic. If you are dealing with a colicky baby, take heart. You can find some help at The Joint Chiropractic.

What Is Colic?

Colic is a condition that is marked by inconsolable crying. This crying must meet certain criteria for a diagnosis to be made. It must last longer than three hours a day, occur more than three days a week, and last longer than three weeks in length. Three, three, and three. That's easy to remember but not so easy to get through, is it? Take a look at some of the most common symptoms of colic below.

  • Unpredictable episodes that can last several hours
  • Inconsolable, intense (often high-pitched) crying
  • Crying for no apparent reason (meaning the baby is fed, changed, and rested)
  • Muscle tension in the abdomen and clenched fists during the episode
