Everyday Care

  1. Exercise: The Right Program and the Right Preparation

    You don't have to exercise for long periods of time—or even vigorously—to become fit. You do need to aim for at least 30 minutes of moderate activity most days of the week.

  2. How Is Your Child's Backpack?

    The Consumer Product Safety Commission found that in one year, more than 10,000 children ages 5 to 14 see doctors with backpack-related complaints.

  3. Smoking Hurts Your Back

    Smoking damages your arteries, and it’s thought that the damaged arteries in the discs and joints in your back may lead to pain and injury.

  4. Watch that Backpack Load

    When your child acts as if she’s carrying the weight of the world on her shoulders, maybe you should check her backpack.

  5. When Exercising, Don't Skip Stretching

    While it's true that stretching won't strengthen your heart or flatten your stomach, it can help you reach those goals more efficiently.
