What is Colic?

Colic is defined as the despaired crying of an infant for a minimum of three hours a day, at least three days a week for at least three weeks. These babies suffering from colic are known to produce loud piercing cries, flexed legs, balled fists, and stiff abdominal tissue. Research shows it can start at three weeks old in the child and can last up to six months. According to doctors, 10-20% of babies suffer from colic.

How Does Chiropractic Care with Dr. Lawrence Clayman, D.C. Help?

Chiropractic care has shown the most success over other treatments like dietary changes, medication, and different infant positions. A randomized clinical trial published in 1999 in the Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics found that "Spinal manipulation is effective in relieving infantile colic”. For this study, the researchers randomly assigned infants diagnosed with colic into two groups. One group received chiropractic care for two weeks and the other group was given the well-known anti-gas medication called dimethicone for two weeks. The babies who got treatment from a chiropractor showed a 67% decrease in crying while the babies on medication showed a 38% decrease.
