"Schroth" Scoliosis Treatment
Dating back to ancient centuries, from Hippocrates in 5th century BC all the way until the present day, Scoliosis was defined as a medical condition and treated.
The Schroth Method remains one of the most recognized forms of non-surgical Scoliosis treatments. Developed in GERMANY by Katharine Schroth in the 1920's and further developed by her grandson Dr. Hans-Rudolph Weiss, the Schroth Best Practice Program comprises over a century of the most advanced rehabilitative techniques in existence.
With years of experience in various postural deformity treatments, we are now focusing on this world- renowned therapy program. Specifically targeted towards the most highly evolved forms of Scoliosis, results of Schroth Best Practice often include improved postural appearance and muscular imbalance, reduction or elimination of pain, improved vital capacity and chest expansion, and halted progression in adults and/or Cobb angle improvement in adolescents.
Based on Lehnert-Schroth classification:
3CH functional 3-curve, hip group

1. The physio-logic program for correction of the sagittal profile,
2. Education related to everyday activities (ADLs),
