Schroth Method Goals

Patients incorporating the Schroth Method into their lives can expect a few, many, or all of the following:

  • Spinal stabilization and better balance via improved body mechanics
  • Halt scoliosis curve progression – in adolescents we strive for reduction
  • Improve lung capacity via corrective breathing and active rib mobilization
  • Relieve or reduce pain as a result of scoliosis
  • Improve strength and flexibility
  • Prevent or avoid surgery
  • Improve postural appearance
  • Learn to maintain spinal corrections during daily activities
  • Empowerment given the knowledge and tools to manage one’s own unique scoliosis
  • For post-surgical scoliosis patients, the Schroth Method helps to improve posture and create stability above and below the fused spinal segments

The scoliosis treatment programs offered at Scoliosis 3DC℠ are comprehensive outpatient Schroth Method programs for those with mild, moderate or severe scoliosis:
