    Thank you @Juan Imaz for sharing one of the most important topics, not "trendy" but more as the trend for the next decade, with the increasing number of smartphone users.
    Well done !
    At all steps, children need guidelines, and more so in this digital age very competitive. Lowering the stress level digitally will help them focus on more important tasks in their daily life.

    @Rafael Garcรญa Romano and I were just talking about this topic during the coffee break today. At 10 they are too young to have their own presence in a social network and, on the other hand, they are 'big enough' to be accompanied by their parents in the path of learning how to use it. This was the advice I received in a talk by an expert in solving conflicts and problems with teenagers. This expert said that it was much better to teach children on social networks at 10 than to wait until they are 14, because they will not follow their parents' advice at this age and they will be taking their own decisions about what to share.

    Great article for awareness and prevention, @Margaret Aranda, MD, PhD! I agree, it is horrendous what the kids have to carry nowadays!

    On the topic of prevention and treatment, have you heard of Egoscue? A simple Google search:

    "Egoscue is a postural therapy designed to eliminate chronic pain without drugs or surgery. Founded by Pete Egoscue in 1978, the Egoscue Method focuses on a series of gentle stretches and exercises to correct misalignments in the musculoskeletal system of the body."
    I would add that it is not chiropractic, nor PT. It is more like gentle yoga poses.

    For backpack pain, see Backpacks Are Affecting Childrenโ€™s Posture,
    It has six exercises to help correct posture.

    Also see:

    Google "backpack egoscue" for more!
    Let me know if you'd like more information. I am stirring up more honey about Egoscue! See the Chronic Pain section of my first honey on the topic:

    #4 Waltzed right into my Reply 2 lines below! Current Studies that Dr Sean Mackey is doing at Stanford: (1) Cognitive Behavioral Therapy; (2) Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction and (3) Acupuncture. Stanford Pain Management is well-entrenched in Acupuncture. I 'grew up' with it and it is definitely a first-line avenue for many. (Has to be done in the right hands, literally!) RE: Chiropractors, I could write a Production on that. In short, I think that depending on your situation, you are literally putting your life in a person's hands. You've got to know your body infinitely well, speak up, advocate for yourself and enter with both eyes wide opened. #1 is that not all patients can do that. If you've been going to a chiropractor for a time and you've gotten QoL (Quality of Life) back, then hey...many times a chiropractors are a last resort. On that note, many people don't know that Medical Licenses are divided into 2 Types: Allopathic Medicine = MD; Osteopathic Medicine = DO. The Doctors of Osteopathy are trained to do chiropractic manipulations of the neck, for example. Huge Topic begging for a Production. Boy, are you guys keeping me busy!

    #2 Absolutely, and that's why I focused on children in an article on back pain. As adults, it's all too easy to look backwards and have regrets for not being as fastidious as we should be...but when this affects our children ~just think, as you said...a SuperParent would see that (s)he carries the full responsibility. And if it's too later for you and chronic back pain is an affliction, not only is Stanford holding the 9/11 #BackPain2016 Stream, but here's the link to look at their research programs. COMPLETED Studies: (1) genetic variation of opioid effect; (2) beta blockers and effect of increasing pain sensitivity with opioids; and (3) brain changes with opioids vs. placebo. CURRENT Studies (Enrollment Closed): (1) 5HT3 Antagonists to halt opioid withdrawal; (2) opioids and whether/how they effect body inflammation; (3) opioid withdrawal and ondansetron vs placebo effect on the brain. FUTURE studies: (1) effect of mHEALTH app for pain management and (2) QoL and validation of pain patients when using digital health tools. OPEN Studies: (1) Cognitive Behavioral Therapy; (2) Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction and (3) Acupuncture.

    Vibrantly vivid and wonderful. I think this should be part of medical textbooks. Thoroughly appreciated @Lisa ๐Ÿ Gallagher a most appreciable narrative.

    Thank-you @Milos for considering it relevant as I'd lost it :) a few days ago and was thinking of how to retrieve the article. This is happening.

    Substantially and significantly in the article are many places where the writer identifies being not informed of what to expect from her condition in a care setting. This is quite common all over. I think it could be easily overcome, easily said than done.

    #53 Hi @David Lisle, amazing what may come out of a woman's mouth after immense pain! My daughter told the Dr. during the delivery, I'm praying to the Angels, and in the next breath began to use the "F" word too which isn't like her. The Dr. asked her where the angels went when she slipped with the F bomb. She laughs about it now. Thanks for reading and sharing!

    Thanks for the insight. When my son was born I was there saying all the stock phrases learned in pre-natal classes. The one thing I was not prepared for was the reaction of my spouse after the baby came out. She was not a person prone to uttering expletives, but on this occasion she shouted, "If you think your getting another F****** one of those you are mistaken."

    #48 @Gerald Hecht, I'm laughing so hard I can barely type! I have a visual of a kidney stone with a cap on it now and someone rocking it. Yes, you are right- a room with only a mattress on the floor probably would have had your name on it. The other difference, once a person passes the stone, they are instantly healed. Not true with giving birth. I have seen others in extreme pain with kidney stones.

    #47 @Lisa ๐Ÿ Gallagher I don't think it compares (the medical staff were sayin similar things, but...they're supposed to)...and let's face it ...even if (and Im thinkin it's an if) the physical pain is as bad...at the end...you don't put a little cap on your kidney stone, and bring it home to lovingly raise it...and if I did, something tells me the Sequelae of having done so,would by now...have led to suspension of contact with the outside world from my cell on "Shutter Island"

I think of women in other countries who give birth out in the fields, in huts and other types of living areas without help at all! Ok, you sure CAN relate to impaction, it's so painful on top of being in pain elsewhere. The codone drugs will sure do that! My daughter was on tylenol with Codiene after delivery and I'm sure that did not help. She's no longer taking that. Thanks for reading and comment Aaron!

    Great post @Lisa ๐Ÿ Gallagher. An no, as a guy, I cannot imagine what it's like to push a watermelon out of a canal the size of a lime. . . Yet, I was present and accounted for at each of our three kids births, and its simply miraculous. I wonder though, much of what you write was information (what to expect, no not the book. . .) that so often mid-wives passed on to expectant mothers for generations. However, somewhere it seems around the early 1900's we (as a society) began treating pregnancy and birth like and illness, versus the natural thing that it is. Perhaps this is driving the higher level of anxiety before and after birth, and just maybe its why we, at least in my area, are seeing significant growth in the number of home births, mid-wives and doulas. . .

    Now as far as getting impacted, and as you say, "Who would have thought women could get so excited over pooping? I'm going to assume this would not cross a man's mind [ sorry guys ]." I can relate to that, but in a very different context! Following my motorcycle accident and being in ICU, busted and broken, loaded with pain meds, nothing worked. It got to the point, I would rather throw up than try to use the restroom. . . Not fun! SO this I CAN relate to, kind of :-).

    Again, great information and I happy to hear your daughter is recovering well!
