Around 3 out of every 100 children suffer from some form of scoliosis (crooked spine), but for many kids it’s not a problem. Some kid’s spines, however, continue to get worse as they grow. You may notice signs of scoliosis such as their shoulder blades being uneven, or one pant leg is shorter than the other when trying on clothes. It could be as subtle as a tendency to lean to one side. If you suspect your child may have scoliosis, come see us LaTouche Pediatrics and our experienced pediatric providers will help decide the right treatment plan for you.
We are starting to be able to see some signs of vegetation around town and that’s got us thinking about our gardens! So, we decided to share a fun, but necessary activity for you and your kids to get ready for planting season. SEED GERMINATION!
Bean seeds are the biggest and easiest to handle but any seed will do. Place the seeds on a moistened paper towel, roll up the sheet, and place it in a plastic bag on your kitchen counter. Open them up a week later and watch your kids get excited that the seeds have sprouted. Happy planting, Anchorage!
