About the Schroth Method
The Schroth method utilizes breathing techniques, visualization, and corrective exercises designed for muscle activation to improve body awareness and treat patients with Scoliosis or Kyphosis.
Our Certified Schroth Therapists help patients by retraining the mind-body connection and helping patients recall and maintain proper alignment. By using the Schroth method consistently, the patient is able to leave therapy with the knowledge and ability to maintain correct posture while performing their daily activities.
Treatment is customized to each patient’s individual needs. A thorough evaluation and review of x-ray imaging will help our Schroth therapists develop an exercise program to restore proper alignment of the hips, reduce the protrusion of the chest, and correct the curvature of the spine.
Patients with Scoliosis or Kyphosis who have seen our Schroth therapists have experienced improved postural alignment, spine stabilization, improved breathing, improved mobility, increased muscle strength and endurance, and decreased pain.
