Did you know that much of your back pain is due to adapted positioning over time, and a lack of understanding of how to return your spine to it's best alignment? This knowledge can result in a calming of the overstretched, irritated and angry soft tissue structures causing your pain. The Schroth Method will help you learn about your particular spine's behavior, positioning and inefficient compensatory patterns, and give you control over how to restore your spinal health and decrease your pain.
ADOLSCENT ONSET SCOLIOSIS
While "watching and waiting" may feel like your only option, there is good news! The Schroth Method to treat scoliosis is a proactive alternative that offers muscle retraining to awaken the weak and inhibited muscles in your child's curve. The goal is to stop the vicious cycle of asymmetrical loading through the vertebrae, causing asymmetrical growth and increasing the spinal curve. The Schroth Method is used to avoid surgery, by assuring the most effective neuromuscular retraining for learning and maintaining optimal spinal alignment. It is also used as a tool pre-surgically, post-surgically, and in conjunction with brace wearing to best prepare the soft tissues and to invest in the best outcome.
ADULT ONSET SCOLIOSIS
Adult scoliosis IS treatable!
You may have been told that there is little that you can do, however, you can slow or stop your curve progression, improve your lung capacity, and decrease your pain with the Schroth Method. You will learn how to align your vertebrae, expand your rib cage and re-educate your breathing and deep core musculature that are closest to your spine. When these muscles function correctly, they de-rotate and pull your vertebrae back toward midline, into a neutral postural alignment, restoring your height while allowing calming of the angry, irritated soft tissues that are causing your pain.
