According to research published in Clinical Chiropractic
, infant colic responds very well to just a few visits to your Cheektowaga chiropractor. In this particular study, 43 infants who cried more than three hours a day engaged in regular chiropractic care over the course of a two week period. The results?
At the end of the first week, their crying had reduced by more than two hours a day. By the end of the second week, that amount had increased to 3.1 hours of quiet, stress-free time for the little one. Additionally, the infants slept almost two more hours each day, giving both them and their parents some much-needed rest.
Four weeks after treatment began, approximately 82% of the families reported that the chiropractic visits had completely resolved the colic issues that their baby had endured. Therefore, this type of treatment is a great alternative when you’re dealing with this particular condition.
