Physiologic® & 3-D Made Easy® by Dr. Hans-Rudolf Weiss: essential components of the Schroth Method for optimal outcomes and only available with Schroth Best Practice®

These effective enhancements to the Schroth method are available at limited locations in the U.S. They are one reason our scoliosis therapy program and back school is the most comprehensive and thorough in the United States and patient’s travel from all over the globe for our Schroth Method intensive programs. Our innovative techniques are not just supplemental to traditional Schroth Method exercises, but absolutely necessary load-altering protocols that can potentially make a significant difference in patient outcomes in the short and long term.

Schroth Method Therapy and Bracing:

Dr. Moramarco is familiar with nearly every type of scoliosis brace.  Over the past several years, patients have come to Scoliosis 3DC℠ from near and far with different braces.

As a result, he jumped at the chance to introduce the Chêneau-Gensingen® brace in the U.S. in 2013. Patient results have improved significantly using our two-pronged Schroth therapy approach and the Dr. Weiss’s Chêneau Brace. Learn more how you can improve your child’s chances for an improved outcome using Schroth therapy and the Gensingen Brace: two powerful weapons against scoliosis.

As a point of fact, the Schroth Method and the SpineCor® Brace are not compatible. Dr. Moramarco, is not an advocate of soft braces for scoliosis. The principles behind the SpineCor® Brace and Schroth exercises are not the same, although there are those who are marketing SpineCor who would have you believe otherwise. If  your practitioner is offering two competing methods of managing scoliosis, then you may want to stop and ask why. What does that tell you? The difference between Schroth and SpineCor® is that Schroth is about elongation and opening voids. SpineCor® uses compressive forces. To learn more about SpineCor® from a media presentation in Canada, go here.

Bracing should be in accordance with the individual patient circumstances and each scoliosis brace should offer the maximum potential in-brace corrections.

In-brace corrections and the potential for improvement of scoliosis is the very reason we are so enthusiastic about the Cheneau Gensingen® scoliosis brace for adolescents with scoliosis. This newest Cheneau brace offers a high degree of in-brace corrections, consistently, for better long-term outcomes and other numerous benefits.

Scoliosis is not a one-size-fits all condition. Each patient should be treated individually, according to curve-pattern. At Scoliosis 3DC℠, that is our approach. If your child has a symmetrical brace or another brace offering adequate in-brace corrections, and comfort, then we think that’s great. We won’t recommend a change unless you are interested, but we do recommend that you help your child learn how to integrate Schroth therapy and fast if your child is still growing or has the potential for significant growth.

Learning the Schroth Method Boston:

Coming to Boston to learning the German method of scoliosis exercise is not something that can be accomplished in a few hours, or in a group setting over the course of a weekend. For patients with moderate or severe scoliosis, our program consists of a comprehensive examination and 20 hours of  one-to-one instruction. A proper Schroth program, for yourself or your child, requires time, energy and resources. We respect that commitment and believe you deserve the best, most knowledgeable and personally committed instructors.
