Hydrotherapy treatment for scoliosis

Image
Hello everyone,

Hydrotherapy also known as aquatic therapy, can be used to help influence body alignments.  There are 5 key features which help with the treatment of hydrotherapy, Buoyancy, the upwards pressure of the water eases stress on muscles and joints, soothing the aches and pains that scoliosis can cause. The warm water within a pool can help to relax the muscles and body. viscosity, the thickness of the water prompts gentle resistance from the muscles and turbalance can also help with scoliosis because when a body is placed within water it naturally moves in order to balance consequently excersising the muscles. The last factor in which contributes towards Hydrotherapy is known as Hydrostatic pressure which provides a natural relief for joint swelling.

Hello everyone,

Today I wanted to share with you all the products I've been using and loving, during the month of October. Before I start this blog post, I just wanted to say how fast October  has come and gone! Also, I don't know if its just me but this month seems to have been crazy busy with new beauty launches, it's actually been quite hard to keep up! But, I have to say I've found a lot of holy grail products this month.



Garnier ultimate blends Coconut and Aloe Vera shampoo and conditioner -
I love the Garnier ultimate blends range and I mentioned them in my Current Hair Care Routine blog post, so when I noticed they had brought out a new scent to the collection and one which claimed to hydrate my hair, which I desperately needed, I knew I had to try it out. I was expecting good things if I’m being totally honest especially since I love other products within the ultimate blends range and these certainly did not disappoint. They managed to hydrate my hair and lock …

New surgical treatments for scoliosis - Vertical body stapling and Wedge osteotomies

Hello everyone,

I was looking at new scoliosis news and i stumbled across two new treatments which are currently being developed in Philadelphia right now! The fact that new operations and treatments are constantly being developed  is really interesting and can help new patients with scoliosis as they now have a choice and to some extent control over the flexibility maintained post surgery and of course the procedure which suits them.

For patients with progressive moderate scoliosis, (less than 45°) who are still growing (girls up to age 14 and boys up to age 16), inter vertebral body stapling of the convex (outer) side of the anterior spine may keep the curve from progressing. With the convex growth plates held in place, continued development of the concave (inner) growth plates should stabilize the progression and may allow some slight correction of deformity as the child grows. This concept has been used in children with bowlegs and knock-knees for some time. Using staples in the sp…

Soph X Makeup Revolution eyeshadow palette - review

Hello everyone,

One of my favourite YouTuber, recently released two palettes in collaboration with Makeup Revolution. I have the eye shadow palette, however there is also a highlighter palette within this collaboration, I really wanted to review and test out this eye shadow palette and let you all know my thoughts and opinions on it.





The palettes packaging is very aesthetically pleasing with the rose gold font and the design of the box the palette came in was designed by Sophie herself, by Sophie I mean soph does nails from YouTube. I have watched Sophie on YouTube for years now and I love the way she does her makeup and you can tell that she knows what she's doing, so when I found out she was releasing her own palettes I knew I had to get them! The collaboration is with the brand Makeup Revolution, which I already use products from and love. Again, this made me even more excited for the palettes because I knew they would be of great quality.
From my first look at the palette, I w…
