The birth process puts a lot of pressure on your baby’s head and neck. Distortions that happen at this time can give rise to headaches and neck pain. Of course your baby can not tell you this and all they can do is cry. The cry of a baby in pain may be mistaken for colic, and if you have tried the accepted remedies for colic unsuccessfully, it may be worth trying a cranial treatment.
There have been no large scale studies to show whether or not cranial work can help babies with colic. Cranial therapist have claimed to treat all sorts of infantile conditions like glue ear, earache, asthma, breathing difficulties and, of course, colic. Chiropractors cannot claim to treat these conditions successfully because no large scale RCTs have been carried out, so no evidence is available.
The following elements make up the baby programme at our Chester and North Wales clinics: Assessment, Craniosacral therapy, Treatment. (The baby assessment consists of different tests compared with the adult assessment, while treatment is much gentler for babies than for adults)
