Scoliosis Specific Treatments

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. 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. It is the most researched of the scoliosis treatment methods and is very comprehensive.

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.

This method provides a basis for our scoliosis program and can also be used to treat other spinal deformities. Certification for this method was completed through the Barcelona Scoliosis Physical Therapy School where we have both C1 and C2 level certification.

The SEAS Approach

The SEAS (Scientific Exercise Approach to Scoliosis) Approach is based on exercises and movements developed in Italy to treat scoliosis. Michele Romano developed it based on specific movements to counteract the scoliosis curve.

We are certified in the SEAS Approach and use it in conjunction with the Schroth Method to achieve the best results possible.

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 education and treat better to yield better results.

What Other People Just Like You Are Saying About Align Therapy in Lehi...

- Kristina C.

“We LOVE Align Therapy! My 11 year old daughter has Scoliosis and has been going to Align Therapy for about a year now. Everyone there is fantastic and we have had nothing but great experiences with all of the staff. Everyone is so friendly and accommodating that it feels more like going to visit family rather than going to a doctor’s office. Don’t get me wrong we see and feel the health benefits of the visits and the office is very professional, but with a friendly welcoming feeling.”

- Robbie M.

“I visited Align Therapy for upper back trouble. The staff was very knowledgeable and skilled. I suffered with the upper back pain for over a year before coming in. Other specialists said I should just wait it out and let my body heal itself or else go get an MRI (very expensive) and then go see orthopedic surgeons. It wasn’t getting better and I was in constant pain. I instead went to Align Therapy and they were able to help me resolve my back pain within a few short months of therapy.”

Scoliosis Success Stories From People Just Like You...

Scoliosis 1
This patient is a 13-year-old female with an original curve measuring 22 degrees. In this comparison, the before x-ray was after she had been doing Schroth training for 2 months. (We did not have access to the original x-ray) The after x-ray was 6 months following. She showed a significant reduction in her curve to 6 degrees in the thoracic and 9 degrees in the lumbar. (under 10 degrees is not considered scoliosis!) This is a great example of a mild curve reducing with scoliosis specific exercise.
Scoli 4
This before and after is of a 9-year-old male treated for scoliosis following surgery to correct a Chiari Malformation. Initially, the main concern was his scoliosis curve and his pelvis being off center. After working with scoliosis specific exercise and posture training, he was able to see a significant reduction in the imbalance of his pelvis and his scoliosis curve.

YOGA MAT

Many Schroth Method exercises are done lying on the floor. If your floor is not soft, it is nice to have a good yoga mat to cushion the floor.
