Schroth Method comes to the US:
While searching for a nonsurgical treatment alternative for scoliosis surgery for his daughter, Dr. Marc Moramarco discovered the existence of the Schroth Method in 2001. The father/daughter team used the 3D treatment for scoliosis to improve her posture and reduce her Cobb angles.
Upon seeing the potential of the Schroth method, his passionate journey to bring it from Europe to the U.S. began. In 2007, ‘Dr. Marc’ became the first U.S. physician to be certified in the Schroth Method at the Katharina Schroth Clinic in Germany. He returned to the US and immediately established Scoliosis 3DC℠, near Boston.
His extensive experience with the method (now more than 17 years) makes him America’s most knowledgeable Schroth expert. He and his team pride themselves on offering the highest quality conservative scoliosis treatments via Schroth instruction and/or bracing for adolescents and adults with scoliosis.
Cutting-edge Scoliosis Treatment
Dr. Marc’s ongoing professional relationship with Dr. Hans-Rudolf Weiss–3rd generation Schroth family–put Dr. Moramarco on the ground floor of cutting-edge improvements recently made to the nearly 100-year-old method. This allows him to deliver the highest quality non-surgical care for adolescents with scoliosis at a time when optimal management is critical.
Schroth Best Practice®, is still the Schroth method but with substantial advantages and shortcuts for patients. Each pattern-specific-scoliosis-specific-exercise (PSSR) program is one-on-one and custom-designed according to curve pattern and curve severity.
At Scoliosis 3DC, patients can also opt for the Gensingen Brace® –either alone, or in conjunction with one-on-one Schroth instruction.
Each scoliosis brace is designed in Germany and produced in the USA. When patients are from out-of-state, or in-need of bracing quickly we measure and begin the first brace fitting within 24 hours. Each of our Chêneau braces is 100% Schroth method compatible and patients tell us it’s easier to wear than traditional scoliosis braces.
For adolescents, the Gensingen brace® offers the potential for improvement of Cobb angle and improved postural appearance whether the scoliosis is mild and progressing, moderate or severe. The goals of our Chêneau brace for adults with scoliosis is spinal support, stability and reduced pain.

For more advanced cases, our scoliosis care means patients have effective non-surgical options, delivered by a caring team.
When scoliosis is progressing (greater than a 5º change in Cobb angle), taking the right steps to stop or improve scoliosis is critical.
