Stay Healthy, Live a Long Time

Hello! My name is Tony and this is my new blog. I decided to start this blog while I was in the hospital recovering from an operation I had to have to remove a tumour from my body. My story had started a few months beforehand when I developed a cough which I couldn't get rid of. I had some test and the doctors discovered I had a tumour in my chest.

However, since being diagnosed, I have been learning all I can about how to stay healthy.

What Athletes Can Expect When Undergoing Physiotherapy for Scoliosis

Physiotherapy is a useful treatment option for scoliosis. Scoliosis is a condition where the spine has a curvature that's more extensive than normal. The spinal cord typically curves slightly as it runs along your back, but patients with scoliosis have a curvature that almost resembles an "S" or a "C" shape. Athletes who have scoliosis may be particularly limited by their condition. Chronic back pain, fatigue from maintaining an upright position, and uneven shoulders may all hinder your ability to perform while on the field. Read More …

There is no denying the fact that old age brings with it eyesight issues. Such an eventuality, however, doesn't mean that people should neglect taking care of their eyes.
