Gwen's Mom, I live in Maryland too and found this website by searching "Schroth Maryland." I am so happy to stumble upon your post. Can you tell me your experience with the Schroth PT you found in Rockville? I am trying to figure out if this is worth pursuing... My daughter is 10.5 years old and we were just referred for bracing to the increase of her curve.... Yet the data on bracing seem so equivocal and I am eager to explore specific physiotherapy. Thanks.

I was trained in Schroth PT when I was 13 years old and was braced for over 5 years in conjunction with it. I am a HUGE advocate of the therapy, but I think its important to stress that if bracing is suggested, the therapy does work best for higher curves in conjunction with a brace. the PT alone is not going to halt progression in most cases. The Schroth method helps patients align their body to a more natural position that ties into their specific curves. Even 5 years out of brace I still apply Schroth principles in my daily life. Its a wonderful way to make a patient feel much more progressive about treatment. Bracing can feel very passive and I know I felt like I wanted to do more. Schroth was a way for me to focus my energy into something very tangible that helped me not only in brace but out as well! Good luck to your daughter! PM or email me if you have more questions. I'm in the DC area and have worked with young patients before both in person and via email.

Hi Elphie, welcome to SSO :welcome2:
Its good to hear that you have had some benefit from Schroth therapy :) In what way do you work with other patients, are you a physiotherapist?

Any young adults in here that experienced benefits of this method? By any chance managed to de-rotate the spine which resulted in a rib hump reduction? There's a certified Schroth therapist in my area. and since I wouldn't have to pay anything (insurance covers it), I'm actually considering giving it a try.

Hi Im a final year Irish student studying Osteopathy in London. I am seeing an ever increasing number of patients with functional and structural scoliosis coming into our clinic each week. However I feel our treatment and advise isnt very strong. Basically we are told to stretch the short side and de rotate the other side, I follow this up with stretches as seen in this clip http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9TWtrCmzaOw
However Im sure there are lots of people here who could advise me on other or even better ways to improve a structural scoliosis be it exercises given or techniques performed on you by therapists.
I have heard the Schroth Method of Management of Scoliosis is very good but cannot combine my own study with the time it takes to complete that course, so any info on it is greatly welcomes.
Thanks for any help on this and I'll let you know how I get on !
