“Our son was diagnosed with scoliosis in June 2013, when he was 15 1/2 years old. His Cobb angle was measured at 45 degrees by the orthopedic surgeon and at 40 degrees by the radiologist who took the x-ray. His hips were significantly shifted to the left. We were told to do nothing and come back for surgery later, if he starts having back pain. We were in shock, both at a diagnosis which had come from nowhere, and at the lack of non-surgical alternatives. We went into research mode found the Schroth method of exercise, which is part of the standard of care in Europe. We contacted Dr. Weiss at the Schroth clinic in Germany and he recommended Dr. Moramarco. In August 2013 we took our son to Boston for one week training into the method with dr. Moramarco. He is very knowledgeable in the method as he has learned it to help a family member. He is also passionate about helping his patients and very caring. The Schroth method can be intimidating as in involves very specific body movements and breathing techniques, but he has a unique way of teaching this method and his visual aids) the DVDs, folders etc.) definitely help the patient continue these exercises at home and do them correctly. Upon returning home, our son did the Scroth exercises daily, for about 45 minutes a day. He returned to visit with dr. Moramarco twice, in October and December, for refreshers and to check his progress. His correction has been remarkable, is clearly visible with the naked eye and his posture is now very good. We believe in this method as we have seen the effectiveness with our own eyes. The difference in the before (August) and after (December) pictures is striking. I highly recommend dr. Moramarco for anyone who is considering non-surgical alternatives to scoliosis. I am glad we trusted him with our son’s care.”
