When Infantile Colic hits, it hits the whole family hard. The definition of colic is inconsolable crying in an otherwise healthy infant. Despite the research done on colic, there is no known cause. The best way to diagnose colic is to establish that the child isn’t suffering from other conditions.
Our Approach to Infantile Colic
Our St. George pediatric chiropractor always performs a detailed exam to get to the bottom of your baby’s symptoms.
