If so, the Schroth Method is perfect for you!

History of The Schroth Method

The Schroth Method was developed based on the principles developed when Katarina Schroth found ways to treat her own scoliosis in the 1950’s. As a result, she noticed different movements and exercises minimized the look of her scoliosis.

Today, the Schroth Method is somewhat different than the original techniques due to changes based on research and changes over time. Because of this, it is the most researched of the scoliosis treatment methods.

Prior to Align Therapy opening in Lehi, Utah in 2015, there were no Schroth Certified Therapists in Utah.

What Is The Schroth Method?

The Schroth Method requires a commitment to doing exercises on a regular basis. Usually, patients are asked to perform exercises 5 days a week for 30 minutes a day. The exercises are designed specifically for each individual curve.

These exercises are meant to reduce the imbalance of the curve and increase symmetry of the spine. Consequently, focus is placed on the “journey” and not as much on the destination. Schroth Method exercises are meant to be done slow and controlled with focus on the process of getting into correction.

This method provides a basis for our scoliosis program and can also be used to treat other spinal deformities. Receiving certification in the Schroth Method by the Barcelona Scoliosis Physical Therapy School allows us to be at the cutting edge of treatment.

Is The Schroth Method Right For You?

Those who are the most successful in Schroth training are those who are able to focus and do their exercises consistently. As you might guess, these exercises simply don’t work if you don’t do them.

If you are someone who is committed to taking control of your scoliosis, are willing to take the time to learn the exercises, and can consistently do them, then you will have a good result.

Training in the Schroth Method is to get you to the point where you are independent with your home exercises. Then, it is on you to continue doing them on a regular basis.

Advanced Imaging

Surface Topography

Using Radiation Free Surface Topography for imaging of the back has helped us to stay on the cutting edge of Scoliosis Treatment. With the use of our Diers Formetric, we can educate and treat better to yield superior results.

Specifically, we use this imaging to help visualize if Schroth Method corrections are being done correctly. We can also use this to monitor for progression instead of needing frequent x-rays.
