What is Schroth Scoliosis Management?
Schroth Scoliosis Management is an exercise-based treatment approach from Germany that has been scientifically verified to generally reduce symptomology, improve trunk appearance, and improve the quality of life of those suffering from scoliosis/kyphosis.
Schroth exercises are specifically customized for your unique spinal deformation. The method teaches you how to simultaneously correct spinal rotation and increase lung capacity with a rotational breathing technique; help restore normal spinal position with pelvic corrections, breathing technique, and stabilizing isometric contractions; and also improve your posture during routine daily living, not just during therapy.
Accordingly, it is used as a first line scoliosis treatment in Europe’s public healthcare system. Although it is not yet offered publicly in Canada, instead leaving scoliosis patients here with only bracing and surgery as treatment options.
This method of care for scoliosis is offered by our Physiotherapist Dan, who is specifically trained in this method.
