Scoliosis is typically measured on a 2-d x-ray using a limited line drawing on two vertebrae (the Cobb Method). Most scoliosis surgery is performed for cosmetic purposes based upon these measurements. The Schroth method Scoliosis exercise is designed to train the patient how to effectively improve the 3-dimensional deformity of the body, and not only to reduce the cobb angle measurement on X-ray.

The Schroth Method scoliosis exercise program  is a unique Scoliosis exercise approach that has been scientifically validated for use in patients of all ages. In addition to scoliosis exercises, our doctors and therapists will make appropriate recommendations for manual therapy.

Today, many physicians take a “wait and see” approach that gives the condition the opportunity to progress, so that the deformity of the spine continues to worsen throughout the individual’s lifetime.

The Schroth Method Scoliosis exercise offers physical therapy for scoliosis patients who are still in the early stages of the condition, as well as for scoliosis patients with more advanced conditions.

The Schroth method scoliosis exercise program focuses on breathing, walking and posturing techniques that address each individual’s specific case. By taking a hands-on approach to treating scoliosis during the early stages, amazing corrections can be made. Look at the Case Studies listed on this page and see how important early intervention can be to reducing curvatures of the spine, and attaining stabilization that will impact the individual’s deformity for the rest of their lives.

The schroth method scoliosis exercise is part of a comprehensive management strategy. Not all patients will be candidates for the Schroth Method scoliosis exercises. Please call our offices to discuss your questions.


Breathing is an important component of the Schroth method and Scoliosis exercise program, focusing on the affected area during the inhalations and exhalations in order to reshape the rib cage while decreasing the rotation of the spine. The breathing techniques are practiced in conjunction with the postures that are effective for specific areas of spine curvature. Certain exercises are appropriate for either lumbar or thoracic curvatures. Before participating in a scoliosis exercise program, you will need to schedule an evaluation. It is important to have current x-rays, in order for us to evaluate your situation and determine the best approach to treating your scoliosis.


Avoiding surgery is the primary goal of many individuals who opt instead to try physical therapy for their scoliosis. There are numerous benefits that the Schroth Scoliosis Exericse Method provides, including the reduction of rotation, an improvement in mobility and reduced pain. There are other options available to you that are not invasive, unlike traditional scoliosis surgery.
