The Schroth Method for Scoliosis
November 30, 2015
Scoliosis is defined as a 10-degree or more curvature of the spine, causing it to have a “C” or “S” shape instead of appearing straight. It tends to begin before puberty but can also begin in adulthood, and can cause sufferers to lean more to one side and limp due to subsequent leg/hip misalignment. As scoliosis progresses, it can also cause painful pinched nerves, muscle spasms, herniated discs, even difficulty breathing.
Unfortunately, conventional treatments such as cumbersome and embarrassing back braces and invasive surgery can be costly. They also tend to have limited results.
Luckily though, these are not the only options available for scoliosis treatment.
Originating in Europe, the Schroth Method is a progressive, effective treatment plan that helps to correct posture, reduce or stop spinal curve progression, improve respiratory function, eliminate pain, and improve overall body appearance. It works by combining stretching, breathing, and muscle-strengthening exercises to combat spinal curvature and realign the pelvis in a way that is non-invasive and easy to maintain, even in the patient’s home.
