Schroth Method & “Best Practice” Goals
The Schroth Method and Dr. Weiss’ Best Practice are a winning combination for the adolescent or adult with scoliosis.
Taking a non-surgical conservative approach for the treatment and management of scoliosis is effective and empowering. The exercise and breathing techniques address scoliosis from a 3-dimensional perspective. Goals of the Schroth – ‘Best Practice’ techniques are:
- to halt curve progression (in adolescents, we strive for reduction)
- improve pulmonary function
- create a stable, more balance spine
- improve posture and appearance
- address pain, if present
- improve strength/flexibility
- mobilize the spine and rib cage
- educate and empower
- decrease vertebral rotation
- to show you how to avoid surgery
Please refer to our Scoliosis 3DC website for more information on the Schroth Method.
