More recently, experts have also begun to recommend chiropractic care for babies with excessive colic. A 1999 case study showed that babies with colic that were treated by a chiropractor reduced their total time of crying by an average of 2.4 hours.
These results were compared to babies treated with dimethicone, a commonly prescribed drug for colic. Babies given the medication in place of chiropractic adjustment only reduced their crying time by an average of one hour.
