When Erika Maude founded Scoliosis SOS back in 2006
, she opened a clinic in Martlesham, a village in her home county of Suffolk. Word quickly spread, and patients flocked to the Scoliosis SOS Clinic from miles around, eager to see if the Clinic's exercise-based scoliosis treatments could give them a better quality of life and eliminate the need for invasive surgery.
In 2009, Erika and the Scoliosis SOS team decided that, in order to better serve the needs of scoliosis sufferers from further afield, the Clinic should relocate to its present-day home in London. Non-surgical scoliosis treatments are still not widely available in a lot of countries, and many scoliosis sufferers wanted to travel to our clinic from abroad but found it difficult to get to a small village in Suffolk.

By contrast, our current location on Mansell Street in London is easily accessible from just about anywhere. London, of course, is served by several international airports, and Mansell Street is within easy walking distance of several railway stations (Fenchurch Street, Liverpool Street) and London Underground stops (Aldgate, Aldgate East, Tower Gateway and others).
