TUMMY TIME!! 👶 Head action stimulates your babys nerves. Brain development is entirely dependant upon input received. The head action provides enormous input as it stimulates nerve receptors. These nerves fire impulses into the brainstem which is responsible for driving motor and cognitive development and learning. Tummy time works the extensor (back ) muscles that run along the spine. These muscles need to be strong to allow for development and progression onto sitting, crawling, and eventually walking. A decrease in the amount of extensor tone will delay this development and the associated milestones. Plagiocephaly (mis-shapen head ) has been linked with delayed milestones and extensor tone, and tummy time plays a big role in promoting good head shape. When face down on the floor, babies are exposed to a new range of tactile input to the face and body parts. Toys and floors with different fabrics and feels help increase the stimulation to the nervous system. As your baby learns to master tummy time they will gain more confidence and sense of achievement. This will encourage further development as they strive to roll, reach, grasp, and pull. Tummy time is one of the most important stages of learning development. Helping your child develop depth perception, back/core muscles, and with a nervous system free of interrupted nerve pathways, will eventually lead to good readers, attention and focus in the classroom, ability to listen and follow directions, copy notes on the chalkboard and sit still at their desk. If your baby cries when you encourage tummy time, have them checked by an ICPA Certified Chiropractor. Babies do undergo stress to their spines and cranial systems, making it uncomfortable or sometimes impossible for them to move their heads freely. Chiropractors work to ensure proper movement of the spine and cranial bones, and that your baby's overall nervous system is functioning at 100% 👶💓🧠🤱 #chilliwack #chilliwackbc #sharechilliwack #chilliwackchiropractor #chiropractor #chiropracticisforeveryone #chirokids #chirofamily #health #wellbeing #wellness #allyouneedisanervoussystemandaspine #pregnancy #pediatric

When you bring your child(ren ) in for appointments, there is a numbered sign located at each parking spot with a phone # to text upon arrival. You and your child(ren ) remain in your car until a dental assistant does a COVID-19 screening at the car. All parents and non-patients must stay in their car for the duration of the appointment. . ****Children who require a companion are still able to have that person accompany them while following our normal protocols, as well as our infection control protocols. New patients may have one parent accompany them inside for their first visit but are required to wear their own mask. 😷 . #ToothTipTuesday #GCPD #Pediatric #Dentist #Greensboro #Covid19 #Corona #safetyfirst #StayHealthy #SocialDistancing

In a recent 2019 study, it was found that chiropractic care leads to cost savings from reduced use and abuse of opioid prescription drugs. Chiropractic also led to a 60% decrease in spinal surgery risk and 40% reduction in medical costs. This is why we have our freedom bin. Our freedom bin signifies breaking free from prescription or over-the-counter drugs that you rely on for pain relief. We’ve even had patients dump their inhalers and allergy meds! Don’t underestimate your innate ability to heal. Chiropractic offers better outcomes at a lower cost. Let our chiropractic doctors assist you on your journey to wellness!

Transitions are hard—- but this little dude makes it look easypeasy 😎 @defyingodds_romansjourney 🔆Resource @babysteps_physicaltherapy Transitions! 💪🏼 Being able to transition from the floor to sitting to standing is a HUGE milestone for kiddos to improve their independence 🙌🏼 Most ideal techniques teach children how to properly weight shift and go from sitting (or side sitting ) to a half kneel position to then push off their leg to stand upright. Some children learn by using their upper extremities to grab onto nearby objects to pull themselves upwards..Other kiddos have to learn how to facilitate this transition with an assistive device, just like this amazing boy here! 🤩 #pediatricphysicaltherapy #hydrocephalus #cerebralpalsy #physiotherapy #pediatric #physicaltherapy #pedspt #nicu #preemie #physicaltherapist #physiotherapist #dpt #rehab #exercise #PT #grossmotor #development #infant #toddler #kids #babies #mother #disabilities #rehabilitation #cp #feelgood #goodnews

The healthcare landscape is evolving, and practitioners must adapt. Many healthcare providers do not want to be bought up by big hospital systems and prefer the flexibility to practice on their own terms. At the same time, the cost for quality medical space has been rising, and practices are forced to sign long leases with restrictive terms. Medical coworking offices provide an innovative solution for today’s healthcare providers. Increase Efficiency: Medical coworking spaces are particularly appealing because they are cost efficient. Sharing resources such as office equipment, administration staff, furniture, and general utilities allows you to start your private practice with ease. Modifying the space to fit your needs will no longer be a problem. There are no overhead costs that you need to worry about so you can pour all your attention into providing the best care to your patients. Your productivity will increase, and your business will grow as a reflection of that. Flexibility and Convenience: MedCoShare allows you to choose your own hours and to create your schedule as it fits your needs. As if sharing resources wasn’t enough, health practitioners can pay for what they need which allows for flexibility and convenience. Due to this, new practices will save on upfront costs and monthly fees. In a major city such as Philadelphia, the money incurred on these savings will only help build your clients. Patient-Centered Care: We understand the importance of building strong and reliable relationships with your patients. Coworking medical offices allow you to enhance your care and grow your business without sacrificing any attention given to your patients. The patient’s experience will be entirely dependent on your valuable relationship. MedCoShare takes care of the vital business operations and ensures that your business is able to run smoothly. Independence: Members of medical coworking spaces understand the need for entrepreneurial work in today’s modern society. There are no restrictions and distractions in a shared medical space. Big organizations will not guide the conversation and make important decisions for these practitioners.

Vitamin K. Why is it essential for newborns? Vitamin K is needed to produce the factors required for the blood to clot. Vitamin K does not cross the placenta and is not transmitted well in breast milk. Thus, babies have very low vitamin K levels. This decreases their ability to clot and puts them at risk for dangerous bleeding events, known as “vitamin K deficiency bleeding (VKDB )”. VKDB is a serious and potentially life-threatening cause of bleeding in infants up to 6 months, but it is likely to be prevented by a vitamin K shot at birth (lovingly known as the ‘thighs’ part of the ‘eyes👀 and thighs🦵’ ). How common is VKDB? It isn’t common in the US because most newborns get the shot. We have seen from other countries that initiating programs to give vitamin K at birth has decreased cases of VKDB to very low levels. Estimates of the incidence of VKDB are 1 out of every 59 infants if vitamin K is not administered, 1 out of every 100,000 if it is. Reportedly, refusal of vitamin K is as high as 31% in birthing centers. Why is it so serious? Bleeding can happen anywhere in a baby’s body - the brain, stomach, intestines, etc. 🚨1 out of every 5 babies with VKDB dies🚨. For those that survive, permanent damage can result, particularly if bleeding is in the brain. Is the shot safe? Yes. Benzyl alcohol an ingredient in many medications. The amount in the shot is not dangerous. Other risks include pain, bruising, or swelling at the place where the shot is given. There was a paper years ago that showed the shot was associated with childhood cancer - this has been disproven. Is there an alternative to the shot? Oral vitamin K is available but has shown to be less efficacious and less reliable because of spit ups, vomiting, and decreased intestinal absorption. Vitamin K supplementation to baby or mom is also not as effective. Have you seen VKDB? . . . Photo is my adorable new niece! References: 🔸Phillippi et al. Prevention of Vitamin K Deficiency Bleeding.
