Recently I did a 2 part blog series on Upper Cross Syndrome. In this series I showed how our poor posture often leads to this head forward, rounded shoulder syndrome which can cause, upper back and neck pain, shoulder injuries, headaches etc. Most people I see in practice have this syndrome to some degree. It is the slouching that we do that causes our shoulders to roll forward leading to forward head carriage and then the symptoms of Upper Cross Syndrome. The second part of the series discussed several ways to help this syndrome. If you want to read the original posts, and try the simple test to see if you have it, you can read them here and here. In this post I wanted to show you a very simple standing or sitting position that can dramatically improve your posture and take the strain off of your upper back and shoulders.

5 months ago, I became a dad (that's her in the picture). Ever since holding my little girl, Bailey, for the first time, I am in continual amazement of the human body and how babies develop and change on a daily basis. You can see them thinking and working things out, it is almost like you can see their brains working and their neurons firing. The change that babies go though in their first year or so is phenomenal. They learn head control, they learn to roll over, they learn to sit, they learn to crawl and then they learn to walk. Like most parents, I also want the best for my child. I recently completed some chiropractic pediatric neurology courses to help boost my understanding of how babies develop and how I can give the best care to my child and those I see in practice. I learnt lots of things in these courses and other training's I have done, but there was several key points that I wanted to share. These 5 points will help you get the most out of your baby’s development.
