Our Schroth program is based on the the protocols used at the Asklepios Katharina Schroth Clinic in Germany, AND the newer innovations in conservative care by Dr. Hans-Rudolf Weiss called Scoliologic® which incorporate activities of daily living for scoliosis and simple 3D corrective exercises known as 3D Made Easy®.
Intensive instruction during a twenty hour program (for moderate to severe scoliosis) is designed to help the scoliosis patient learn a corrected postural stance while standing, walking, sitting etc. according to specific guidelines. The goal is to teach the patient to counteract the likelihood of spinal curve progression and to reduce symptoms associated with scoliosis.
The program can be completed within one week for patients traveling to the Boston area from out of state or country or over six weeks or so for more local patients. Mild curves require less instruction.
