9 week old with colic-made happier!

Picture a cute little 9 week old girl. She looks cute, but something from the tired look in the mother's eyes tells the observer that all is not well.

The mother explains that the little 'angel' basically never sleeps. She will take a short nap for 10 minutes and then wake up screaming.

In my office, the wee one cried as hard as I have ever seen a child cry and her face turned a bright red at the least movement or touch.

We checked her out for subluxations (spinal misalignments that can interfere with the body's normal energy and healing abilities). No surprise, she had a bunch of them.

After a very gentle touch to the neck, and a few other areas: (interspersed with the little girl's full throated-red-faced screaming), all of a sudden, she calmed down and started to yawn.

The Mom called later to say that for the first time in this little girl's 9 week existence, she laid down for a nap for 90 mins. and when she woke up she was happy!

Chiropractic helps little bodies and big ones to work better!!!
