As a father of a child with scoliosis, Dr. Marc Moramarco discovered the existence of the Schroth Method, of Germany, while searching for a nonsurgical way to help his own adolescent daughter avoid scoliosis surgery. That was in 2001. The father/daughter team used the 3D treatment for scoliosis to improve her posture and reduce her Cobb angles. That was the start of his passionate journey to bring the Schroth method to the U.S. and to offer individuals and families the most effective, long-term conservative option for scoliosis management.
‘Dr. Marc’ became the first U.S. physician certified in the Schroth Method in Germany in 2007. He then established Scoliosis 3DC℠ near Boston. He initially began by incorporating the original Schroth protocols. As a result of his ongoing professional relationship with Dr. Hans-Rudolf Weiss, 3rd generation Schroth family member, he was on the ground floor when Dr. Weiss created integral improvements to update the Schroth method of his grandmother, Katharina Schroth.
Cutting-edge Scoliosis Treatment…
The ‘new’ Schroth Best Practice® has substantial advantages for patients and is more user-friendly. Our scoliosis exercise programs are custom designed for each patient whether they have mild, moderate or severe curves. There is the option for the Gensingen Brace®–alone or in conjunction with a program. The German-designed brace is Schroth compatible and easier to wear. It is unique in that, for adolescents it offers potential improvement of Cobb angle rather than just halted progression. It also is designed to improve the appearance of the torso and back. For adults, the goals are spinal support, stability and reduced pain.
Why should you choose Scoliosis 3DC℠?
Our approach to scoliosis care means patients have effective non-invasive options, from a caring team, at a standard of care not available anywhere else in the U.S. We aim to enable, engage and empower scoliosis patients who rarely get a proper explanation about their condition or told that they have no options to improve their scoliosis. Our motto “Not Wait and See” mirrors our proactive approach to lifetime scoliosis management.
Scoliosis 3DC℠ programs differ from others because we have a strong focus on education. Every patient understands the WHYS of what they are learning, not just the HOWS– a critical advantage that makes a big difference. Find out more about treatment goals, patient results, our Schroth programs for adolescents, adults, post-surgical, and Scheuermann’s kyphosis and why we think the Gensingen brace® is the best scoliosis brace!
