Over the years, we have treated a lot of patients from Birmingham and the surrounding area! We love helping people of all ages to manage their back problems and regain their independence.
To celebrate the recent opening of our new scoliosis clinic in Birmingham, here are a few of our Birmingham success stories...
Lavinia was a housewife and keen gardener who was struggling to cope with her scoliosis. Her spinal curvature was so severe, doctors warned her she might not be able to stand up straight again. Lavinia had been diagnosed with scoliosis in her twenties, but hadn't pursued treatment at the time. It was only when her condition visibly worsened in her forties that she explored our exercise-based therapy options.
" I feel so much better about my body and I have gained so much confidence."

Nishtha from Birmingham was a keen ballet dancer before her scoliosis worsened and started to cause her pain. Medics warned her that she may have to quit dancing, which left Nishtha heartbroken. She was even having nightmares about her condition. Our exercise-based treatment programme allowed Nishtha to get back to doing what she loved and sleep easy again!
"I can finally get back to dancing, and I'm no longer scared about closing my eyes at night."

Helen, a grandmother from Birmingham and another keen gardener, was in severe pain due to her scoliosis. Doctors told her that she had two options: live with the pain or undergo invasive spinal fusion surgery. Luckily, we were able to offer her a third, exercise-based option.
"I am so pleased with the results I have achieved. I truly believed that I was going to need to have my spine fused. I feel like I am back in control and I am getting used to being able to attend to my flowers again without pain."

Lucy was told her scoliosis was so bad that she might not stand up straight again. She had to face the prospect of spinal fusion surgery at a very young age, and she started to lose interest in the activities she loved. Luckily, her parents discovered our clinic and were able to bring her to us for a 4-week course of treatment. Her condition is now under control and she is no longer a candidate for surgery.
" I feel like myself again."

James, a keen tennis player from Birmingham, thought that his sporting career would be cut short due to his condition. He was in excruciating pain and found his time away from tennis soul-destroying. He wanted to find a scoliosis treatment that would still allow him to pursue his dream career as a sports therapist. He came to us for treatment and is now back to playing tennis regularly!
"It was amazing to believe that even though my spine was curving, I could prevent it from getting worse by doing a few simple movements. It has given me a new lease on life and I'm looking forward to the summer as I missed out on so many tennis games."

Aspiring model Ayesha was left devastated when her curved spine started to impact her career prospects, but she wasn't going to let scoliosis stand in the way of her dreams. She came to the Scoliosis SOS Clinic for treatment and continues to exercise every day to improve her posture. Ayesha has grown to be over an inch taller since visiting the Scoliosis SOS Clinic as her spine continues to straighten.
"I started to feel a change after a week. I started to feel a lot more comfortable. The visual effects became more apparent after a month, and my lung capacity has improved."

This young kickboxer from Birmingham was distraught after she was told she'd need metal rods in her back to correct her scoliosis curvature. The surgery would prevent her from training or competing in the sport she loves, as a blow to the spine could be really damaging. Using a range of equipment and exercise techniques, Paige has learnt how to elongate her back and prevent her spinal curve from getting worse, so she's been able to get back to kickboxing.
"With Paige having won the UK and European championships in kickboxing, we are all hoping that by avoiding the operation she can carry on with the sport she enjoys."
