Low back pain and pubic symphysis dysfunction are often dismissed as normal during pregnancy, but just because they are common, does not mean they are normal. In this course we will review these common conditions, including how they might present differently during pregnancy, adjusting tips to keep mom comfortable, and home care recommendations to keeps moms feeling good. Once those littles ones make their way into the work, they can present with conditions unique to infancy. In this course we will also dive into the three most common presenting conditions of infancy. Using clinical case examples and current pediatric evidence, we will discuss the best management protocols for these conditions.
