The Schroth Method is a gentle yet complex, neuromuscular re-training program for all spinal disorders and postural mal-alignments, including scoliosis, hyper-kyphosis and Scheuermann's disease. It has been shown to slow, stabilize, and even stop the progression of posturally imbalanced curves by using an individually designed, curve-specific exercise program. The treatment is guided by a Schroth certified Physical Therapist to actively self-positioning one's body and extremities to de-rotate out of and elongate each curve, offering symmetrical muscle firing and muscle memory in that region. Pulmonary function is improved by increasing the lung capacity in one's concavities using the Schroth breathing technique. Schroth breathing expands and ultimately reshapes the ribcage by strengthening weakened, inefficiently functioning intercostal and intervertebral muscles, improving breathing, decreasing pain, and halting the curve progression.
