What is Colic?

Frequently Asked Questions

Is chiropractic care safe for infants and children?

Chiropractic care is safe for children. Dr. Brenda started checking her son and adjusting him when he was just a day old!

Is it painful?

The adjustment is so light that most babies barely cry. If they do cry, it is short-lived. An adjustment to an infant’s spine is extremely light. No twisting or severe pressure is used.

How long will it take to notice results?

Most parents will notice a change in their baby after the first adjustment! That is because their spines have not had the amount of trauma to them like adults. Therefore, they tend to heal quicker. Parents often notice less fussiness, better sleep, bowel movements, and a happier baby!

If you’re seeking a natural and non-invasive solution for your baby’s colic and excessive crying, we invite you to schedule a consultation with Dr. Brenda, Chiropractor. Dr. Brenda will work with you to develop a personalized care plan that addresses your baby’s individual needs and helps you find the relief and support you need as a parent.
