Are you having back pain with any of the following?
We understand that you are experiencing one or more of the health issues that might be impacting your back pain.
We recommend that you discuss these health issues with your doctor before proceeding with this program.
Once you are cleared by your doctor to do this program, we hope it helps you find relief from your back pain.
Teaching your children good health habits now will give them a solid foundation for growing strong and healthy. We offer resources to support you as a parent and help you handle the challenge of raising healthy kids.
Watching your child grow and change is one of the great pleasures of being a parent.
Right before your eyes, your baby evolves from tiny, helpless newborn into a climbing, willful toddler. Just as quickly, that toddler grows into a pre-school-age child – curious, active, and fun. Kids' bodies and brains grow so fast, it seems you are buying bigger clothes and marveling at their latest tricks every week.
Once your child starts school, the years may seem to fly by. Looking back at pictures, you may be surprised by just how much and how fast your little one has grown.
Other areas of development
In addition to physical growth, there are several other main areas of development that include:
Many factors affect your child's development
We know that multiple factors contribute to a thriving, healthy child, including:
Parents and caregivers play a huge role in supporting a child's development. Your love and attention are perhaps the most important factors in helping your child develop to his or her full potential.
Young children accomplish certain developmental "milestones." When they are babies, common milestones include things like rolling over, sitting up, and saying a first word. These are all milestones that indicate that a child is developing normally.
In preschoolers, milestones are still important, but you may not be as aware of them. For example, most 3-year-olds are able to:
These simple activities are markers that a child is on track developmentally.
To learn more about the developmental milestones for your child's age, check out our Healthy Kids, Healthy Futures series. Developed by Kaiser pediatricians, this information can help you know what to expect at each age and stage of your child's development.
Is my child developing normally?
One of the most important reasons to keep up with all recommended well child visits is to ensure that your child is growing and developing normally.
All children are different and develop at their own special pace, so try not to worry if your child is a bit earlier or later than others. It's also common for a child to develop in one area faster while developing more slowly in other areas and then catching up.
Please talk with us about any concerns you have about your child's development.
If you have an emergency medical condition, call 911 or go to the nearest hospital. An emergency medical condition is any of the following: (1) a medical condition that manifests itself by acute symptoms of sufficient severity (including severe pain) such that you could reasonably expect the absence of immediate medical attention to result in serious jeopardy to your health or body functions or organs; (2) active labor when there isn't enough time for safe transfer to a Plan hospital (or designated hospital) before delivery, or if transfer poses a threat to your (or your unborn child's) health and safety, or (3) a mental disorder that manifests itself by acute symptoms of sufficient severity such that either you are an immediate danger to yourself or others, or you are not immediately able to provide for, or use, food, shelter, or clothing, due to the mental disorder.
