Here at Scoliosis SOS, we are proud to treat scoliosis sufferers from every corner of the globe; if you've visited our Overseas Patients page, you'll know that people have travelled to our clinic from all over Europe, as well as from Africa, Asia, Oceania, and North America.
One foreign country from which we frequently receive enquiries is Canada, with many Canadian scoliosis sufferers making the transatlantic journey to our London clinic
each year. (That's London, England not London, Ontario!)
Twisted Sister Thrown a Curve
If you often read about scoliosis online then you may have come across a blog called Twisted Sister
. This blog is written by a woman named Jennifer from Vancouver, and it details her experiences as a scoliosis sufferer and her quest to get treated and overcome the symptoms of her spinal condition.
Jennifer is actually one of the many Canadian people we have treated here at the Scoliosis SOS Clinic. She first came to us in 2013 after reading about us online, and she blogged about her treatment course while she was staying in London (for instance, you can read about her first day at the clinic here
Last year, Jennifer returned to the Scoliosis SOS Clinic and recorded this short video interview with us:
Why Travel to the UK for Scoliosis Treatment?
Canada to England is a long journey, but as we feel Jennifer would testify, it can be a very worthwhile trip indeed. Non-surgical scoliosis treatment remains outside the mainstream in Canada, and finding an effective alternative to surgery within the country's borders can be difficult.
Our treatment programme, the ScolioGold method
, is proven effective; as our research
has shown, it can visibly reduce a scoliosis patient's Cobb angle measurement
, as well as providing pain relief and improving flexibility and self-image.
Jessie Bowen, a 23-year-old girl from North Canada, was another scoliosis sufferer who came to us from the other side of the Atlantic Ocean. You can read her story in full here
, but to demonstrate just how life-changing our treatment courses can be, we'd just like to share a short excerpt from her testimonial now:
"I never thought when I went to Scoliosis SOS that I would gain so much. I never knew what I wanted to do as a career, but throughout the time I spent at the clinic, it just clicked, and I realised how important physiotherapy work is. I am now working with patients and teaching them about their various conditions.
"I can't explain how grateful I am to the SOS Clinic, as without them, I may have lost my flexibility forever."
