The Power of Poo

Constipation is defined in many ways, but it is typically seen as having fewer than 3 bowel movements a week. Constipation may also make itself known through harder than normal stool, difficulty passing stool, decreased appetite, pain, abdominal distension, and foul body odor (especially in children).

Healing a Cesarean Scar

The body is a self-healing, self-regulating unit. It’s pretty incredible. But wound closure isn’t the only thing that needs to heal after a Cesarean delivery, so there are a few extra things to consider that I encourage all of my patients to do.

Expert Q&A: Improve Your Posture

Whether standing, sitting, walking, driving, breastfeeding, or carrying a child we all have improvements that can be made in our posture.

Poor posture can negatively impact a persons health. Back problems are an obvious result of poor posture with back pain being the most common problem. Poor posture can affect our health in other ways too. For example, slouching can give rise to jaw pain and headache. Poor posture places more strain on the muscles and joints and can lead to arthritis. Poor posture can also affect breathing, and impair both the circulatory and digestive systems.

Most people have poor posture and it is visible in a variety of different activities we do every day. Join us for an Expert Q&A with Dr. Lindsay Mumma as she offers tips on how to improve your own posture during various everyday activities.
