Chiropractic for Colic? Research Says Yes!

A study was done in 2012 to find out if chiropractic adjustments could help babies with unexplained crying.(Colic)

“Infants with unexplained persistent crying (infant colic) were recruited between October 2007 and November 2009 at a chiropractic teaching clinic in the United Kingdom. Infants younger than 8 weeks were randomized to 1 of 3 groups: (i) infant treated, parent aware; (ii) infant treated, parent unaware; and (iii) infant not treated, parent unaware.”

The conclusion of the study was that chiropractic adjustments improved crying behavior in children with colic.
