"I decided that enough was enough and booked an appointment to see my chiropractor. I knew that my back needed some work but I never imagined I would be told such devastating news. Almost as soon as I was told I had scoliosis I started looking for alternative treatments to surgery. I knew right from diagnosis that I didn’t want an operation. I was frightened of the pain and even more terrified of the risks."
Samantha and her husband found Scoliosis SOS through the internet. It took them a while to decide to come over to England for treatment as was such a long way for them to travel. However, her pain got so severe that she was left with no alternative but to take a chance and book in for treatment.
During the weeks before she started treatment, Samantha was very anxious. Her whole life was balancing on the results of a clinic she had never even visited.
She had spent weeks preparing herself and had very mixed feelings when the day finally arrived for her to go to the airport. The accommodation was booked and so was the treatment course, there was no backing out now.
On arrival at the clinic Samantha and her husband were both visibly nervous. She now had four weeks of intensive exercising to do and her husband faced spending the next four weeks in a foreign country on his own. However, within a few days Samantha knew she had made the right decision.
By the end of week one she was noticing a change. Her pain was improving on a daily basis and her husband had started commenting on her posture and physical appearance. By week four Samantha had gained a massive amount of confidence and had become a different person.
"I cannot believe what a transformation this treatment has made to my life! I am now absolutely pain free. The pain I was experiencing was taking over my life and I felt as though I was letting certain work opportunities pass me by. I had studied for my business degree and I just felt like it was being wasted. Since I have returned to Australia so many people have commented on my back and for the first time in my life they are good comments and I am finally proud to be who I am."
