Max Thompson was diagnosed with scoliosis when he was still in his teens, but he wasn't offered any advice or treatment at the time. Here's how he tells it:
"I didn't know what 'scoiliosis' meant - it was a strange word I'd never heard before - and no treatment was offered by the NHS. So I thought, 'well, I'll just carry on'."
While Max - now 60 years old - hasn't suffered any severe symptoms from his condition and has kept himself very fit over the years, during his initial consultation with Scoliosis SOS, he compared the sensation of having a curved spine to "wearing a jumper that's two sizes too small". He also mentioned that he frequently felt stiff and inflexible, especially across his lower back.
Prior to coming here for treatment, Max was already doing core-strengthening exercises, plus swimming and cycling most days.
Following his 4-week ScolioGold treatment course, Max has achieved significant reductions in kyphosis, coupled with better head position and posture. His thoracic (upper spine) rotation decreased by nearly 20%, while his lumbar (lower spine) rotation is completely gone, meaning that he is no longer classified as being hyperlordotic!
On seeing his before and after photographs (above), Max was amazed by the appearance in his back's appearance and shape, remarking: "You can see my neck! I thought I'd lost my neck!"
"Over the years, I've seen chiropractors and sports therapists. They'd relieve it temporarily, but I always wondered if there was a better solution.
"I would recommend coming to Scoliosis SOS for a diagnosis - you'll be treated with respect and courtesy, and given a lot of hope and a lot of inspiration. It's a very honest diagnosis, and I came away thinking, yes, I really can improve my condition.
"The team here are excellent - they empowered me. I've been shown the skills, and now I can go home and do things on my own. You're given control; I feel like I've got control over my own health that I didn't have before."
