Schroth Method for Scoliosis

Reduce pain and decrease the need for surgery for scoliosis with the Schroth Method.  The Schroth Method is a conservative treatment that has also been demonstrated to slow or stop curve progression in adolescents.

The Schroth Method was originally by Katharina Schroth, who had scoliosis, in 1921 in Meissen, Germany. 

The method utilizes stretching, breathing and muscular retraining exercises to decelerate scoliotic curve progression in children and teens, manage postural pain in children, teens and adults and restore optimal postural alignment and control.  A recent study demonstrated the effectiveness of the Schroth Method in adolescents.

Stephanie Penny, PT, DPT, OCS, is one of the Schroth Method-certified therapists in Chicagoland and will teach you specific exercises to address your individual needs and teach you a cohesive home exercise program for long term self-management. Stephanie also teaches monthly small group maintenance sessions to help you sustain your results and perfect your form.

Treatment with the Schroth Method for scoliosis is eligible for coverage by insurance with a physician’s referral.
