Infants with Colic

Do you have a baby who cries more than you would consider ‘normal’? Do you think your baby may have infantile colic?

If so, you may be interested in taking part in a study that is seeking to evaluate two different treatments for infantile colic to find out which is more effective. (CHIC) is a study for Infants with Colic.

Infantile colic is the most common complaint seen by doctors in the first 16 weeks of a child’s life. It is usually thought of as a benign disorder because the crying generally reduces to normal levels by the age of five or six months, although some people believe that there are longer-lasting effects on the child.

But it can cause a lot of distress for parents and can disrupt family life. At present, there is no ‘cure’ for infantile colic but some people believe that certain gentle manual techniques (such as those used by chiropractors) might safely reduce the symptoms. So we invite you to take part in our research study. More information »
