Spring and autumn are times of the year where the weather is unpredictable and each days temperatures change from warm to cold. Your muscles are like elastics so they react the same as elastic would in fluctuating temperatures, so when it is warm the muscles expand and when it is cold the muscles contract.

So what does this do?

The constant expanding and contracting of the muscles leads to spasm and the joints to be out of place from the constant expanding and contracting of the muscles, this in turn can lead to pain, headaches and constant muscle aches.

SO what can be done?

  • Get yourself adjusted to align the spine and ease off the muscles spasms
  • Keep yourself warm on the cool days
  • Needles and TENS for the affected muscles
  • Stretching
  • Take the appropriate vitamins
  • Eat healthily
  • Nice warm showers or baths to keep the muscles warm
  • Breathing exercises to keep the oxygen levels normal

Don’t live in pain if you are suffering at these times of the year, see your Chiropractor so that they can help and prevent it from getting worse.

Don’t be under the weather!

Colic babies are stressful on mums as they can’t stand to see their baby in pain.

Tips for the mommy to help aid in this crisis:

  • Always empty the breast when feeding, don’t switch from one to the other, baby needs both fore milk and hind milk
  • Avoid foods that are gassy e.g: cabbage, onions, garlic, carbonated drinks etc
  • Avoid caffeine and spicy foods
  • Try eliminating wheat and dairy from your diet and see how baby responds to the changes, if favourable there might be a food allergy problem
  • Certain burping positions are best for baby, the Chiropractor can help you with these
  • If bottle feeding, alternate holding positions of the baby when feeding to avoid the baby favouring one side
  • Also when bottle feeding try the special colic feeding bottles

Chiropractic neural massage and spinal mobilizations can help the gastrointestinal tract to function better and baby will feel more at ease and with less pain. There are healthy, alternative solutions to colic.
