Schroth method

The Schroth method is a scientifically recognized approach and a conservative way to treat scoliosis and kyphosis.

It uses special respiratory and isometric exercises, which basically strengthen asymmetrically a scoliotic or kyphotic body. It was developed in the 1930s and took its name from the German physiotherapist Katharina Schroth, who suffered herself from scoliosis and tried through movements and exercises invented by her to improve mainly her respiratory function and body posture. Since the 1960s, it is officially recognized and compensated by the German health system. It is also internationally the most widespread method of treating scoliosis, having a great amount of sound scientific research, validating its effects.

The Schroth method’s exercises are different to classical fitness exercises, and they are used to three-dimensionally correct scoliosis through special movements and a different way of breathing, known also as Rotational Angular Breathing (RAB), which aims at correcting the rotation of the spine.

The kinesiotherapy program is personalized, taught only by a trained and certified physiotherapist, who trains the patient to properly perform the exercises.

The patient has to focus physically and mentally on restoring their spinal symmetry, which has been lost due to scoliosis. In scoliosis there is a muscular imbalance at the spine, so with the special exercises of the Schroth method, the patient learns how to strengthen their muscles at the convex area of the scoliosis, which have relaxed, and to elongate the muscles of the concave part, which have been shortened.

Some of the objectives of the Schroth method are:

  • Correcting the spine rotation
  • Improving lung function
  • Improving chest expansion while breathing
  • Improving the appearance and aesthetic outcome
  • A more balanced posture
  • Lessening or complete elimination of pain, when it coexists with scoliosis
  • Proper muscular strengthening over a scoliotic body
