Reducing Crying Time In Distressed Infants

Multiracial babies crying together side by side, 4-6 months old

For the first time the National Council For Osteopathic Research (NCOR) are able to show positive evidence that manual therapy based care helps reduce crying time (of around 1.27 hours a day) in healthy but distressed, unsettled or excessively crying infants. NCOR have also produced data showing that the incidence and risk of reported adverse events in manual therapy care of infants who are healthy but distressed, unsettled or excessively cry is low (~7 non-serious transient events per 1,000 infants).

The review shows that the quality of research is improving, but there is still much progress to be made.
