How the Chiropractors at Wilbeck Chiropractic Help Children with Colic

At Wilbeck Chiropractic, we understand how distressing it can be for parents to see their child suffering from colic. This condition, characterized by prolonged periods of crying and discomfort in infants, can be challenging to manage. Our board-certified chiropractors in Wichita, Kansas, are dedicated to providing natural, gentle, and effective solutions to help alleviate the symptoms of colic in children.

Understanding Colic

Colic is a condition commonly seen in infants, typically appearing within the first few weeks of life and peaking around six weeks. The exact cause of colic is not well understood, but it is often associated with gastrointestinal discomfort, gas, spinal misalignment or a developing digestive system.

Symptoms of colic include:

  • Intense and prolonged crying spells
  • Crying that occurs at the same time each day, often in the late afternoon or evening
  • Clenching of the fists and drawing the knees to the chest
  • Arching of the back
  • Difficulty sleeping


How Chiropractic Care Can Help

Chiropractic care is a natural and non-invasive approach to managing colic. Our board-certified chiropractors at Wilbeck Chiropractic are trained in pediatric care and use gentle techniques to help relieve the discomfort associated with colic.

Here’s how chiropractic care can benefit your child:

  • Spinal Alignment: Even infants can experience misalignments in their spine, which can affect the nervous system and digestive tract. Gentle chiropractic adjustments can help correct these misalignments, improving nerve function and reducing colic symptoms.
  • Nervous System Support: The nervous system controls every function in the body, including digestion. By ensuring that the spine is properly aligned, chiropractic care can enhance nervous system function, promoting better digestion and reducing gastrointestinal discomfort.
  • Improved Comfort: Chiropractic adjustments can help relieve tension and discomfort in an infant’s body, providing immediate relief from colic symptoms. Many parents report that their babies seem more relaxed and comfortable after a chiropractic session.
  • Holistic Approach: Our chiropractors take a holistic approach to health, considering all aspects of your child’s well-being. This includes providing advice on feeding techniques, diet, and other lifestyle factors that may contribute to colic.

Here’s what you can expect during a pediatric chiropractic visit:
