The Schroth Method for treating Scoliosis

The modern Schroth physiotherapy treatment for Scoliosis is based on the same principles originally created by Katherina Schroth in 1921.Worldwide it is the most widely recognised exercise-based approach to treating the condition.

Katherina’s grandson Dr Hans Rudolf Weiss has updated the Schroth method into what is termed ‘Best Practice Schroth’.
Each patient with Scoliosis has a unique spinal curve pattern and the goal of the Scroth method is to de-flex and de-rotate the body’s trunk allowing a return to a more normal physiological position. Potential benefits are:

Finally the method gives the patient a sense of empowerment over Scoliosis, very important psychologically, as previously it would have been assumed that it was a condition that was beyond the power of the patient to control.
