Infantile Colic

At Chiropractic Dubai, Dr. Leader has had many years experience of treating babies from birth onwards. Their parent’s usually come, having read about the use of gentle spinal mobilisation for colic, constipation, or babies who are constantly regurgitating their food. Babies are examined, spinal and muscular problems are often discovered and then they are treated very gently. Symptoms usually clear up in two to three treatments and with this a normal sleep pattern is usually established.

 

The spinal muscles can become very tense and the correction of this tension and the spinal joints help to normalize and re-balance the autonomic nervous control of the intestines and stomach. This in turn aids the digestive process, eliminates the baby’s pain and calms the baby. The crying stops and the whole family breathes a sigh of relief! The emphasis is on gentle treatment methods suitable for babies and children.
