Treating scoliosis in adulthood can present a variety of challenges. We discourage adults from expecting to improve scoliosis. That said, our patient EG is an adult diagnosed with scoliosis in adolescence who was searching for a way to manage scoliosis proactively. She participated in Schroth instruction sporadically over a few months time.

Her initial x-ray, left, showing Cobb angles of 44° thoracic and 55º lumbar (the hospital radiologist reported a 60º lumbar Cobb angle). EG reported a practice schedule of four times per week and was re-x-rayed one year later at her annual orthopedic visit at a Boston hospital. That image, right demonstrated Cobb angles of 39º thoracic and 43° lumbar. Her orthopedic doctor was amazed and asked what she had been doing differently. When she told him the Schroth method, he said he had never heard of it. (Note – At that time we did not offer scoliosis bracing for adults).
