Here at Scoliosis SOS, we pride ourselves on our status as a truly international treatment centre.

(Not including the United Kingdom, where our clinic is located.)

Why do people choose to travel to our clinic?
Having scanned the long list of countries above, you may be wondering why exactly the Scoliosis SOS Clinic is worth a long journey to London from Tanzania or Peru or New Zealand. In other words: why do people from every corner of the globe come to our clinic in England?
The answer is rooted in the fact that we specialise in non-surgical treatment
for scoliosis and other spinal conditions. In most parts of the world, the standard treatment route for scoliosis sufferers involves wearing an uncomfortable plastic brace and undergoing surgery if the curve progresses past a certain point. Here at Scoliosis SOS, we offer a real alternative to surgical intervention: ScolioGold therapy
, our own treatment programme which is based on the Schroth method
but also incorporates numerous other approaches.
For years now, ScolioGold treatment has been reducing Cobb angles
and improving quality of life among scoliosis patients from all sorts of backgrounds. Effective non-surgical treatments for scoliosis are unfortunately still unavailable in many countries, and this - combined with the worldwide word-of-mouth advertising that our happy patients provide for us upon returning home - goes a long way to explaining why people are prepared to travel long distances to benefit from our own treatment methods.
No matter where in the world you live, if you are suffering from a curved spine, we would love to hear from you. Contact Scoliosis SOS today to arrange an initial consultation - this can be carried out via Skype or over the telephone if you don't live anywhere near London.
