Babies- Constipation and Colic
Does your baby seem really fussy? Are they struggling to have any consistency with their bowel movements? Chiropractic care often times can help in these circumstances by decreasing irritation to the babies nervous system. Often times the birthing process can cause excessive stress on a babies spine. This can end up leading to inflammation and irritation to the nerves that exit the spine. The nerves effectively work as the bodies circuit board. Any amount of increased pressure on these nerves can interfere with the bodies ability to send information to itself. When this happens the baby can present with a variety of symptoms including: persistent fussiness, decreased bowel movements, refusal to eat from a certain side of a mothers breast, etc.
