As you can see from our overseas patients map, we've had the pleasure of treating scoliosis sufferers from almost every continent. Back in 2015 we treated Nikke, our first patient from Nigeria. She travelled all the way to London in order to receive treatment for her curved spine.
Nikke - who was 36 when she visited our clinic - was first diagnosed with scoliosis when her mother noticed a hump in her back when she was 11 years old. She visited a local hospital, but was then referred to an orthopaedic hospital in Lagos (Nigeria's largest city), where she was told she had to wear a back brace.
Some time later, Nikke had noticed a sharp pain in her back; she tried to continue her life as normal in spite of the pain, but it got progressively worse over time and, by 2014, her back pain was so excruciating that she had to visit the hospital once again. There, Nikke was told she would need to go undergo surgery, and so she came to London to speak with a doctor about the possibility of an operation. She was told that the surgery would cost her £60,000 and that she'd have to undergo two separate operations, with the possibility of more surgery later in life.
Nikke was understandably put off by this, so while she was still in London she decided to look at other scoliosis treatment options. That's when she came across Scoliosis SOS. Nikke was looking for a treatment that would relieve her back pain and correct her posture - and we're happy to report that this is exactly what our ScolioGold treatment course achieved.
During her time at the clinic, Nikke sat down for a quick chat about her diagnosis, the treatment she received for her scoliosis in Nigeria, and how ScolioGold therapy helped with her condition. Watch the video below to find out what she had to say.
