Suggest treatment for a pinched nerve

.I have a newborn that was diagnosed with colic but after multiple GI tests and formula changes, I believe it is a pinched nerve that hurts him,thus the reason he cries. Even one GI specialist agreed that Garrett suffered nerve damage to his neck, that s why he pulls his head to the left...can you help me find an answer? The labor lasted for 18 hours, it was a vaginal delivery and I had to push for more than 4 hours to get him out...he was logged to one side, severe back labor and umbilical cord around his neck. He was also 2 weeks late. My first baby at 42. Thanks so much!

Pediatrician 's  Response
infantile colic is really challenging for both parents and pediatricians , it's of unknown cause , yet cramps starts from the 3rd week of life and persists for month , mostly resolve by the 1st year of life , and no organic cause is identified
some medications may help a little bit , changing formulas will not help much
some of the probiotics might help but it's not guaranteed
you will have to live with it , I know it's difficult for the mother but try when it happens to hold the baby from its belly , that give him a small relief, and please don't try herbs
I hope this answer helps you
