How To Pick Up Your Kid Without Blowing Out Your Back

How To Pick Up Your Kid Without Blowing Out Your Back

Mamas and Papas! Lend me Your Ears! And Low Backs!

It has come to my attention (in the form of panicking new patients) that our kids are causing our emergency medical bills.

Swimming classes? Sure. Organic fruit squeeze packs? Why not.

But low back spasms and emergency doctor visits are certainly not what most families budget for in time or money.

How do our growing munchkins cause low back spasms?

Bending over to pick them up.

Repeatedly.

As they put more weight on every day.

And wiggle and squirm.

And hide behind hard-to-reach places.

Moms and Dads & Grandparents, did you know that there IS a right way and a wrong way to pick up your child?
