Chiropractic will help your baby whether it directly affects her sleep or not. Chiropractic is not about relieving symptoms. It is about making sure the body has a properly functioning nervous supply (information to and from the brain). That said, there are lots of symptoms (colic, asthma, etc) that chiro has shown to significantly decrease in frequency or even go away after regular chiropractic care was begun. But it's because regular chiropractic care ensures that the body is communicating effectively among its systems (getting all the messeges from the brain and the body is able to send messeges back to the brain). Thus the body is able to heal itself.
I'm gonna recommend you take her to a chiro who is experienced in dealing with children. A good place to look for one is www.icpa4kids.com. There is alos a ton of chiro and kids related research on the site you can browse through.
You may also want to look at the possibility of her diet affecting her sleep. Dairy, grains of certain sorts, even some fruits may cause sleeplessness. There is a ton of info in the health forum.

Check this out:
I don't know if this applies or not.
Could just be a stage thing:

my son had a very gentle birth and his sleep issues seemed normal but he still had some chiropractic care. so who knows? but i do know women who have had tough births say that CS therapy worked wonders.
