The Schroth Method of Scoliosis Exercises


The Schroth Method is a non-surgical scoliosis exercise program that people with scoliosis learn do at home to help stop the progression of the curvatures of their spine and in many cases help reverse them. The Schroth Method is a set of scoliosis exercises that helps strengthen and lengthen the specific  weakened and shortened muscles on the inside of the curvatures of the spine.

Nu-Schroth Exercise – De-rotational Sitting on a Chair

This method can significantly reduce scoliosis related pain and is great way to control and manage the curvature of your spine. There is a bulk of literature and studies that have shown this method can help put a halt to the progression of the curvature of the spine. Such is written by professional therapists and doctors that have long administered such method on people with scoliosis. Patient’s who have performed these exercises consistently over time have been found to be able to stop the progression of their scoliosis curvatures and in many cases significantly reduced the angle of the curve and after a few months.

This method has indeed greatly benefited many patients with scoliosis, and even if you don’t have the condition, you can still do the set of exercises in this method to prevent and avoid any curvature that might occur in the future. Though, this method is very promising in helping people treat their scoliosis, it is not for everyone. The success of this method is greatly in part affected by patient compliance. They must be willing to commit to a regular program of specific scoliosis exercises for at least ½ hours everyday to achieve noticeable results.

The best result are achieved when the condition is caught and treated in the early stages when it is most correctable.  So, as soon as you have been diagnosed with the condition, start doing this method immediately along with great compliance.  Yet we have had many adult patients gain success in relieving their constant scoliosis related pain with these exercises.
