Colic is a condition that often has new parents stressed, worried, tired, and at times feeling hopeless; that there’s nothing they can do to help. Stress and constraint during pregnancy hard wires babies to experience stress more easily. Often times, babies who are colicky have had a birth intervention that involved axial traction (or pulling motion) via C-section, forceps, vacuum, etc. The average OB uses about 80-120lbs of pulling pressure during an assisted delivery, which would be equivalent to adding an 80lb weight to your child and lifting them up by their head! This can definitely be a contributor to why a baby is unsettled and unable to enter a state of relaxation. Our techniques are extremely gentle and effective at correcting the underlying problem. The amount of force used can be compared to the same amount of force you would use to check the ripeness of a tomato in the grocery store. Specific and accurate adjustments are made to ease stress and relax baby. Mom and dad are a huge part of the healing process and are involved in every step of the way.
