Chiropractors are skilled healthcare professionals who focus on the musculoskeletal system, including the spine and nervous system. When it comes to colic, chiropractors can offer valuable assistance in the following ways:
1. Spinal Evaluation: Chiropractors will conduct a thorough evaluation of your baby’s spine to identify any misalignments or tension that may be affecting their nervous system. These misalignments can disrupt the proper functioning of the body and contribute to colic symptoms.
2. Gentle Adjustments and Touch and hold Therapy: Through gentle and safe chiropractic adjustments, chiropractors can help restore proper alignment in the spine.
These adjustments aim to alleviate nerve interference and promote optimal nervous system function, potentially reducing colic symptoms.
3. Nutritional Guidance: Chiropractors can provide guidance on proper nutrition for both breastfeeding mothers and formula-fed babies. They may recommend specific dietary changes or supplements that can support your baby’s digestive health and overall well-being.
4. Craniosacral Therapy: Chiropractors may employ gentle craniosacral therapy techniques to release tension and promote relaxation in your baby’s body. This therapy focuses on the craniosacral system, which includes the skull, spine, and sacrum, to enhance the functioning of the central nervous system.
5. Soft Tissue Techniques: Chiropractors can utilize soft tissue techniques to address any muscle tension or restrictions that may contribute to colic symptoms. These techniques aim to improve circulation, enhance digestion, and promote overall relaxation. Our chiropractors can also release tension from the valves within the babies digestive system to help promote healthier digestion.
