Developed 80 years ago in Germany by Katharina Schroth, it is the standard scoliosis treatment in Europe. The therapy, tailored to each patient, focuses on halting curve progression, reducing pain, and improving posture, strength and lung function. It includes stretching, strengthening and breathing techniques. Patients practice new techniques at home or in our clinic. The goal is to incorporate postural corrections into their daily lives. Studies have found that Schroth exercises for scoliosis improves patient prognosis, and reduces the incidence of surgery in all age groups.
Not all Schroth therapy is the same:
