How to Properly Pick Up Your Child | Parenting and Back Wellness from Align Wellness Center


– Hey, it’s Dr. Gerstin from
Align Wellness Center and I wanted to go over a tip
that I frequently get asked. “How should I be picking up my kids?” So, what I’d like to do is
enroll my good friend Jordan. Would you come here? Hey, this is my little
daughter, she’s two years old and I’m going to share with you the best ways to pick her up. So, first off, we want
to make sure we get down as low as we can, we want to look to give our child a hug, whether they want it or not, and then you want to lift up with your legs. Lifting up with your legs will take a lot of the pressure off of your lower back and put it onto the muscles in your legs so that you can lift well. What we want to go ahead and put her down what we do, we bend down
with our knees again and we lower her all the
way down to the ground. Now, you know this isn’t always the easiest thing to think of but when you get to practice it, easily, and when you’re thinking about it it becomes easy all the time. This will also help to
reduce any lower back pain you get from lifting, not only with your kids
but throughout the day, as well as any neck and shoulder pain. Now, if you do wind up
running into any of those, please, give us a call, let’s see if we can help you
out in solving these problems so that they don’t
become bigger and worse. Once again, I’m Dr. Gregg Gerstin with Align Wellness Center.
