Schroth Method

The aim of scoliosis treatment is to delay or even prevent further progression of the spinal deformity. Specific physiotherapy method is used- Schroth method. By using this method the patient:

- Learns to be aware of correct posture.

-Strengthens the muscles that hold the corrections in position.

-Learns corrective breathing - improving thoracic mobility.

-Learns postures, movements that provoke worsening of deformity.

-Learns exercises that prevent or reduce asymmetric loading of the spine.

Under the guidance of a physiotherapist, a home exercise programme is developed for the patient, and they are taught these corrective exercises, which should be done every day, for at least 20-30 minutes a day. Further visits to the physiotherapist are depending on the need, at least 1x per month.
