Chicago Infantile Colic Therapy

An infant with IL infantile colic is a normal, growing baby that engages in crying bouts for an extended period of time, usually three hours a day for at least three days a week in a three-week period. Excessive gas, abnormal peristalsis, and food allergies or intolerances have been suggested causes of infantile colic, but the exact cause has not been determined.

Infantile colic starts occurring when an infant is one or two weeks old and is at its height at about six weeks. Infantile colic usually stops when the baby is about 2-3 months old. Infantile colic affects 20-30% of babies. Infantile colic in Chicago usually strikes toward the end of a long day, when your baby is just about at the age when your sleep deprivation has really begun to set in. Many parents end up feeling very discouraged and frustrated when their baby ceases to cry.

Upon visiting the chiropractor, Dr. Jason Fennema DC, your baby will go through a detailed health history and diagnostic exam to figure out how severe the infantile colic is. From the results, the chiropractor will determine a customized treatment plan for your infant.
