Memorial’s Rehab Services Moving to New Pooler Location; Therapist Offers Tips for Healthy Infant Development

Sunday, October 12th, 2014

Pediatric Rehab outpatient therapy services Memorial’s Rehab Services Moving to New Pooler Location

The Rehabilitation Institute at Memorial University Medical Center is moving its Pooler outpatient office to the Mulberry office park.

Beginning Monday, Oct. 27, therapists will see adult and pediatric patients at 101 West Mulberry Drive, Suite 210. Appointments are available Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. The phone number is 912-273-1000.

Therapist Offers Tips for Healthy Infant Development

Two of the conditions treated at The Rehabilitation Institute are torticollis and plagiocephaly, which affect some infants before or shortly after birth.

Torticollis is caused by a tight neck muscle and results in the baby’s head tilting to one side. It may occur before birth, although its cause is unknown. Left untreated, torticollis can cause developmental delays in rolling, sitting up and walking.

Plagiocephaly, which is often present with torticollis, is a flattening along the back of the head causing asymmetry. It can cause an uneven facial shape and uneven ear position.

Studies have shown that positioning and exercise started within the first three months result in excellent outcomes. Consult your pediatrician if you have concerns. Early referral to a physical therapist for evaluation may prevent a child from having to attend prolonged therapy and may prevent the need for a cranial molding helmet.

If you suspect your baby may have symptoms of these conditions, try these suggestions from Sherry Mitchell, lead pediatric physical therapist at The Rehabilitation Institute:

Give your baby tummy time when she is awake.

Position the crib, swing or bouncer so that your baby turns his head toward the tight side.

Position your baby on her side for play and alternate sides.

Alternate sides when nursing or bottle feeding to encourage head turning.

Use only approved positioning devices in the carseat to keep the head midline.

FREE breast health awareness seminar on 3D mammography technology, Oct. 21

Tuesday, October 7th, 2014

SouthCoast Health Richmond Hill SouthCoast Health, the Savannah-based medical organization formerly known as SouthCoast Medical Group, will host a community breast health awareness seminar in observance of Breast Cancer Awareness Month on Tuesday, Oct. 21 at 6:30 p.m.

FREE & OPEN TO THE PUBLIC

The free event, held at the practice’s Richmond Hill medical campus (89 Interchange Drive), will include a discussion on the latest advancements in 3D mammography technology. SouthCoast Health is one of the first practices in Georgia to offer this innovative service.

Family medicine specialist, Dr. Regina Dandy, obstetrician/gynecologist, Dr. Neil Odom, and family nurse practitioner, Nanci Ahearn, will be available to answer questions and provide health and wellness information for women of all ages during the seminar. Light refreshments will also be served.

3D mammography, also known as breast tomosynthesis, has become the new standard in breast cancer screenings. This technique involves the digital production of a 3D image of the breast tissue, which allows physicians to examine the area in fine detail without the confusion of overlapping tissue. Recent studies have shown that the use of this technology has led to a 41 percent increase in the detection of invasive breast cancers, a 29 percent increase in the detection of all breast cancers, and a 15 percent decrease in the number of false positive callbacks.

For more information about the breast health awareness seminar, call (912) 527-5301 or visit www.southcoast-health.com.
