What is the Schroth Method for Scoliosis

The Schroth Method is best known as a conservative exercise which uses a three dimensional approach to correct spinal misalignments, or subluxations, such as scoliosis, by elongating the trunk. The goal of this specific method of treatment is to naturally develop the inner muscles of the rib cage in order to alter the shape of the upper trunk and to correct spinal imbalances. Chiropractors or physical therapists who perform the Schroth Method will instruct the patient on specific exercises to help straighten, centralize and re-align the spine utilizing corrective breathing techniques.

The Schroth Method exercises aims to achieve: the stabilization of the body’s natural curves;  the mobilization of stiff body parts; the improvement of postural alignment; teaching daily living activities; promoting corrections; enhancing neuromuscular control; increasing muscle strength and endurance; reducing pain; and the improvement of cardio-pulmonary function.

Who Can Benefit from the Schroth Method?

The Schroth Method can be utilized to treat people of all ages with scoliosis and it can also be used to treat all stages of scoliosis, including cases of scoliosis where the individual has received surgery.

Schroth Method Exercises

The Schroth Method exercises which are specifically utilized for scoliosis are based on the individual’s curve patterns and severity as well as their specific function and mobility. The goal of each exercise is to achieve a proper alignment with an improved and correct posture through specific positions, repetitions and breathing techniques. Each exercise is designed to reduce a flat back posture and rib prominence, also helping to restore the alignment of the pelvis. The Schroth Method exercises can be modified in order to create the optimal posture for each individual.

A chiropractor or physical therapist who specializes on the Schroth Method for scoliosis will help guide a patient using tactile stimulus. This way, the individual can begin to understand where they need to breathe and elongate to create the proper muscle activation they need to correct the misalignment.

The reduction of the spinal misalignment, or subluxation, caused by the individual’s scoliosis will depend on the length of time they had the spinal condition. The primary focus of the technique is to reduce the abnormal curvature of the spine bur overall to halt the progression of this misalignment.

How Long are Schroth Method Exercise Therapies?

First of all, a chiropractor or physical therapist will individually evaluate a patient’s level of scoliosis. Subsequently, the healthcare specialist will base the Schroth Method program exercises depending on the results of the exams. Treatment sessions generally range from 45 to 55 minutes in length and can vary from up to 5 sessions up to 20 sessions. It’s also important for patients to continue their home exercise programs. Fitness should be a lifetime commitment and it can be vital towards maintaining a proper postural correction. It’s often recommended for patients to receive evaluations every 2 to 3 months after being discharged from the program. Make sure to speak to a healthcare professional regarding this.

Additional Topics: Neck Pain and Auto Injury

After being involved in an automobile accident, the sheer force of the impact can often cause whiplash, a common type of neck injury resulting from the sudden, back-and-forth motion of the head against the body due to a car wreck, or other incident. Because of this, many of the complex structures found within the neck, including the spine, ligaments and muscles, can be stretched beyond their normal range, causing injury and painful symptoms.
