Physiologic® & 3-D Made Easy® by Dr. Hans-Rudolf Weiss – an essential part of a Schroth program for optimal outcomes.

Only two North American Schroth practitioners are trained in these effective enhancements to the Schroth method. They are just one reason our program is the most comprehensive and thorough in the USA . These innovative techniques are not just a supplement to traditional Schroth Method exercises, but absolutely necessary load altering protocols that make a big difference in patient outcomes in the short and long term.

The Schroth Method and Bracing:

Dr. Moramarco is familiar with each type of scoliosis brace. Patients come from all over with different braces, some good, others not so much.

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 compatible, although there are those marketing SpineCor who would have you believe otherwise.  Don’t take our word for it. Follow this link to the SpineCor website: http://www.spinecorporation.com/English/index.htm. Go to: Patient Information/FAQ’s/”Why other physiotherapy methods like Schroth are not recommended in combination with the SpineCor® brace?” Is your practitioner offering two competing methods of managing scoliosis? What does that tell you? Schroth is about elongation and opening voids. SpineCor® uses compressive forces.

Bracing should be in accordance with the individual patient circumstances and any scoliosis brace should offer maximum in-brace correction.

It is for this very reason that we introduced the Cheneau Gensingen scoliosis brace of Germany in the U.S. This newest Cheneau brace consistently offers a high degree of in-brace correction for better long-term outcomes plus other numerous other benefits.

Scoliosis is not a one-size-fits all condition. Each patient must be treated individually according to curve-pattern. At Scoliosis 3DC that is what we do. If you have a Boston brace, or another scoliosis brace offering adequate in-brace corrections, that’s great. We won’t recommend a change and we’ll help you learn Schroth for the best outcome possible.

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.
