Scoliosis Treatment Norway

Undergoing scoliosis surgery can be a rather scary prospect, and so it’s perhaps no wonder that people are often willing to travel thousands of miles across land and sea in order to access an effective non-surgical alternative. Norway is one country that is quite short on non-surgical scoliosis treatment options, which explains why several of the pins on our Overseas Patients map are situated along the western edge of Scandinavia.

Case Study: Camilla Bang

Camilla, a young woman now in her early 20s, is one scoliosis sufferer who frequently flies over to our clinic from Norway for a refresher session. We first treated her in 2013 after she decided that she didn’t want to have steel rods inserted into her back!

Camilla was first diagnosed with scoliosis as a teen. She was experiencing a bout of back pain, and her mother – upon examining Camilla’s back – noticed a visible curvature that prompted the family to visit the hospital in Oslo for an X-ray. That scan revealed a 37-degree spinal curve; one year later, another X-ray showed that Camilla’s Cobb angle had progressed to 43 degrees, severe enough to qualify her for surgery.

However, when Camilla realised what the operation would actually entail, she and her father began researching alternatives. Their search led them to the Scoliosis SOS Clinic in London, which turned out to be a less expensive option than the one non-surgical scoliosis treatment clinic located on the other side of Norway. (London’s many shopping opportunities were a big draw too!)

Camilla attended a 4-week ScolioGold course back in 2013 and saw rapid progress thanks to our special exercise-based treatment programme. Eventually, her curve was diminished to a Cobb angle of 38 degrees, and her refresher sessions and ongoing exercises have managed to keep it there for several years now.

Watch the video below to see Camilla speaking about her experiences at the Scoliosis SOS Clinic.

Scoliosis Hong Kong

Over the years, we at Scoliosis SOS have been privileged enough to treat patients from practically every corner of the world. Not only is it very gratifying to know that people are willing to travel thousands of miles in order to receive treatment from our ScolioGold-certified therapists, we also find it very educational and enlightening to meet people from so many different countries. As you’ll see on our Overseas Patients map, we’ve welcomed scoliosis sufferers from all over the world through the doors of our clinic!

For instance, quite a few patients have come to us from China – including Hong Kong, which used to be a British colony but is now a special administrative region of the People’s Republic of China.

Case Study: Saffron & Tobey

Saffron and Tobey Turl are two siblings who live in Hong Kong. Both of them have curved spines: Saffron, who had been experiencing unexplained back pain for a while, was diagnosed thanks to a school health screening, while her younger brother’s curvature was spotted by their mum when he was running shirtless one day (Tobey is a keen distance runner!).

In order to get their spinal curves under control, Saffron and Tobey travelled nearly 6 thousand miles to reach our clinic in London. Once here, they completed an intensive exercise-based treatment regime that got great results for both of them.

During a refresher visit, Saffie and Tobey sat down for a quick chat about their experiences at the Scoliosis SOS Clinic. Watch the video below to find out what they had to say.

Although we’re located in London, we’ve treated patients from all over the world, including numerous scoliosis sufferers from the USA. Our excellent accommodation facilities and unique treatment methods have persuaded many people to make the long journey from America to the UK in search of an alternative to scoliosis surgery.

Here are two of our success stories, from individuals who were unable to get the scoliosis treatment they required in the USA:

Patient #1: Nadia Browne

14 // Female // New Jersey

 Sara Van Zandt

Until her diagnosis, neither Nadia nor her family had heard of scoliosis, which meant that there was a great deal of worry and confusion when the doctor brought it up. Nadia became anxious that her curved spine would impact her love of sports, and found that her outgoing personality was beginning to slip away.

Why did Nadia choose Scoliosis SOS?

After deciding not to undergo a risky 9-hour operation to correct her spine, Nadia and her mother began looking for alternatives. They found a chiropractor who claimed that he would be able to help Nadia’s condition, but after two years of treatment, no progress had been made – in fact, Nadia’s condition sadly got worse during this period. This heightened the family’s urgent need to find a viable alternative to surgery, which is why they made the decision to travel from the US to the UK for Nadia to receive scoliosis treatment at our clinic.

Results:

After four weeks of treatment at the Scoliosis SOS Clinic, Nadia’s physical appearance and spinal rotation improved dramatically, which meant that she no longer required surgery. Her pain disappeared, and her personal wellbeing improved as she was able to return to playing sports.

Patient #2: Tina Barlow

41 // Female // Florida

 Tina Barlow

Although Tina was diagnosed with scoliosis at the age of 12, she did not experience physical or emotional issues until her mid-thirties, after she had given birth to her third child and suffered a car accident.  This meant that she was in agonising pain for 3 months, and experienced flare-ups on a regular basis thereafter.

Why did Tina choose Scoliosis SOS?

Having read articles about our work here at the Scoliosis SOS Clinic, Tina was convinced that we could help her. This decision was made even easier and more urgent when Tina discovered that her daughter was affected by scoliosis as well.

Results:

Since receiving treatment with Scoliosis SOS, Tina and her daughter have been pain free, and are able to manage their conditions with the advice provided to them. Tina can now ensure that her condition doesn’t deteriorate while also preventing her daughter from having to undergo major corrective surgery.

Patient #3: Kurt Wunder

29 // Male // California

Another patient who crossed the Atlantic to reach our clinic is Kurt Wunder from California. Watch the video below to learn his story.
