Schroth Method for Scoliosis and Spine Curvature

When it comes to scoliosis and spine curvature, you want the least invasive treatments without interrupting your life. The Schroth Method is a low-impact form of physical therapy with exercises designed to stop curve progression, improve posture and enhance your quality of life. In some cases, it can even prevent the need for spine surgery.

A Schroth-certified physical therapist has advanced training and can customize a physical therapy program based on your age, skeletal maturity and specific spine curvature.

What is the Schroth Method?

The Schroth Method is a physical therapy approach to treating spine curvature, with exercises tailored to each patient’s specific curvature.

Schroth therapy, which includes Good Shepherd’s Pilates Program, can help stop your scoliosis from progressing and lower your chance of needing surgery. The goals of the Schroth Method are to:

  • Make you more aware of your posture
  • Help correct your posture by improving muscle strength
  • Improve breathing quality and increase lung capacity
  • Decrease joint pain related to muscle imbalances from the spinal curve

Who Would Benefit From The Schroth Method?

Patients of all ages with scoliosis or spine curvature can benefit, including:

  • Children, adolescents or young adults with a diagnosis of scoliosis — whether or not you wear full- or part-time bracing
  • Anyone with a lateral curvature of the spine or exaggerated normal curves
  • Anyone who underwent spine surgery and is experiencing issues with pain, stiffness or limited function
  • Anyone with asymmetrical posture who is experiencing pain or stiffness
