Colic: It could be just the start of a miserable childhood
We are passionate about the health and well-being of children! That’s why we want to extend an invitation to you to refer families with children that have been diagnosed with colic and have been suffering with the disorder for over a month to us for treatment!
What is colic?
Colic is often defined as crying more than three hours a day, three days a week for more than three weeks in an otherwise well-fed, healthy baby between the ages of two weeks and six months.
What could cause colic?
The cause of colic is generally unknown. Less than 5% of infants who cry excessively turn out to have an underlying organic disease, such as gastroesophageal reflux disease, anal fissures, subdural hematomas or infantile migraine.
How is colic diagnosed?
Colic is diagnosed after other potential causes of crying are excluded, typically via a history and physical exam.
