They help us express ourselves by changing the shape of our ...Read more

Visited a sick friend, now have same symptoms: very sore swollen red throat, a lot of pain swallowing, coughing, muscle pain, congestion. Strep? Cold?
Yes! Probably cold: Both can be the cause; however the presence of a cough makes strep much less likely. This is an unusual time for flu.

If your symptoms change or worsen, may need to be seen. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Big head!: Infants have overall relatively low muscle tone and coordination because they have not used their muscles much, and their neurologic systems are still developing. Neck muscles seem especially poor in part due to the relatively large head which is out of proportion to the neck to begin with. ...Read more

Isometrics: A gentle means to strengthen muscles of the neck is to realize that the periodic stress of a muscle keeps it toned. As to the neck, one can use their own hands and arms to press the neck from different directions, or resist the neck as it attempts to move in different directions. Walking, with attendant head bobbing is another way. Swimming is an excellent way to tone muscles of the neck. ...Read more
