Scoliosis Specific Treatments
The Schroth Method
The Schroth Method was developed based on the principles developed when Katarina Schroth found ways to treat her own scoliosis in the 1950's. She noticed different movements and exercises minimized the look of her scoliosis.
Today, the Schroth Method is somewhat different than the original techniques due to changes based on research and changes over time. It is the most researched of the scoliosis treatment methods and is very comprehensive.

The Schroth Method requires a commitment to doing exercises on a regular basis. Usually, patients are asked to perform exercises 5 days a week for 30 minutes a day. The exercises are designed specifically for each individual curve.
This method provides a basis for our scoliosis program and can also be used to treat other spinal deformities. Certification for this method was completed through the Barcelona Scoliosis Physical Therapy School where we have both C1 and C2 level certification.
The SEAS Approach
The SEAS (Scientific Exercise Approach to Scoliosis) Approach is based on exercises and movements developed in Italy to treat scoliosis. Michele Romano developed it based on specific movements to counteract the scoliosis curve.
We are certified in the SEAS Approach and use it in conjunction with the Schroth Method to achieve the best results possible.
Using Radiation Free Surface Topography for imaging of the back has helped us to stay on the cutting edge of Scoliosis Treatment. With the use of our Diers Formetric, we can education and treat better to yield better results.
