Some decisions in life are far easier than others and require little to no thought — let alone research — before making them. Finding a pediatrician, however, is not one of them.
Similar to primary care physicians or family care physicians, pediatric doctors focus on the general well being and overall health of their patients, who range in age from infants all the way up to 18.
Choosing a pediatrician who is experienced in treating a variety of conditions in different children is important. In fact, choosing the right pediatrician can help keep you maintain your child’s health, especially if you develop a solid, professional relationship with the p
Chances are you’ve experienced low back pain, either short- or long-term, at some point during your life. Back pain is even the second most common reason for doctor visits, after only respiratory infections.

If you think you might be pregnant, but you’re not sure where to go next, you don’t have to face this alone. From finding a pregnancy test for free to meeting with a doctor, there are plenty of resources out there for women just like you. Here are three things you should plan on if you suspect that you may be pregnant:

As a consumer, you hold a lot more power than you may think you do, and that power lies in your hard-earned cash. After all, money talks and makes the world go ’round, right? Cash still reigns as king, especially in the hands of consumers. As such, it’s important to pay close attention to skin care products you purchase. As a matter of fact, you should only trust the condition and health of your skin to professional skin care products.
Like many other health conscious Americans, you most likely check the nutritional facts of the food products you buy in grocery stores. Anything that doesn’t measure up to your healthy standards gets left on the shelf. So why not do the same for your skin care products? By continuing to purchase inexpensive, drug store skin care products, you’r
Syracuse City Ballet’s upcoming production of the classic fairy tale and much-beloved ballet Swan Lake promises to balance artistry and athleticism in a staging that will be the region’s first since the company last performed it in 2004.
Dancers must display incredible athleticism in all ballets, of course, especially when dancing en pointe. The 26 bones (the feet contain 25% of all the bones in the body) and more than 100 muscles of the feet must support leaps, turns and other complex movement, all while the dancer is balanced on the tip of her toes.
But Swan Lake is particularly demanding regarding the technical skill and athleticism of the dancers, even those in the corps de ballet. Some dancers must hold uncomfortable positions, remaining perfectly still, for u

There’s no shortage of information nowadays about the obesity “epidemic” in the United States. The fact is, epidemic or not, the U.S. has a serious problem with its weight. Nearly two out of three Americans are overweight and more than a third of all American adults are obese. The problem has become so substantial that First Lady Michelle Obama made it a priority of her office to develop health and fitness programs, especially for children.
Of course, proper diet and exercise is the only true method of losing weight. With them, no method or procedure by itself will work — at least in the long-term. Still, some people who diet and exercise regularly have problems getting rid of stubborn pockets of fat located in the body. Sometimes diet and exercise aren’t enough to tot
There are few worse thins than chronic lower back pain. It can affect your sleep, your daily activities, and even your work. Back pain is one of the most common causes of disability among Americans under the age of 45, and if you’re someone who suffers from it you know how debilitating it can be. There are millions of people affected by lower back pain in the U.S. each year. Here are three risk factors for developing it.
