It can be absolutely crushing when your health prevents you from doing the things you love. Here at the Scoliosis SOS Clinic, we frequently treat people who have found themselves in that demoralising position, and we've met a number of people whose passion is bowls (also known as lawn bowls).
Bowls is a very social sport, and when the symptoms of scoliosis - primarily back pain - threaten to stop you playing, it's easy to feel like you're losing friends as well as your favourite pastime.
Fortunately, it doesn't have to be that way. Here are the stories of two people who came to the Scoliosis SOS Clinic and, with the help of our ScolioGold treatment programme, overcame their pain to get back on the green.
from Barnet, North London
"When playing bowls, you often get slightly sore on one side, but the pain I was experiencing was entirely different - and much more painful - than anything I'd experienced before. I genuinely thought I was going to have to give up my bowls, and for me that would have been devastating. So I am delighted with the outcome of my treatment."

from Coventry, West Midlands
"Living life as 'Gloria with scoliosis' has not been easy, and I was devastated when I had to give up playing bowls. But the Scoliosis SOS consultants have been great - I have been able to start playing again, and have made a great new group of friends from the clinic."
