Infants with Acid Reflux & Colic are Helped by Chiropractic

Research published in the Journal of Pediatric, Maternal & Family Health documented cases of 16 infants who were suffering with colic or acid reflux and got complete resolution of their symptoms with chiropractic care.

“Research is revealing that injuries to the upper part of the neck may be a factor in a number of disorders. These injuries lead to misalignments in the neck that may compress the spinal cord and other nerve structures in the neck. This compression leads to nerve interference and can result in a host of disorders such as colic and acid reflux.”                -Dr. E Elster, Chiropractor and author of the study

Chiropractic adjustments to this part of the spine in infants with these symptoms respond well.  At our chiropractic office in Lincoln, NE, Dr. Tarnick utilizes a finger tip adjustment with the amount of gentle pressure that it takes to blanch the finger nail.  The parents will hold the infant as Dr. Tarnick places his fingertips along the spine to motion the vertebra off of the nerve with the Chiropractic adjustment.  Our office specializes in helping many infants and children with all sorts of health conditions because we remove nerve interference and allow the body to function properly.
