This method of treatment is named after its founder Katharina Schroth. This therapeutic approach boasts of an extensive range of procedures used to treat Scoliosis.
Connected with a certain form of breathing, three-dimensional correction positions are developed, which are to be strengthened and strengthened. The respective exercises are individually adapted by the physiotherapist. Since scoliosis can deteriorate in growth, optimal scoliosis therapy is usually designed as a long-term therapy.
The goals are the individually optimal erection of the spine as well as the prevention of a further increase in curvature and the associated negative consequences such as pain, functional limitations of the internal organs and movement restrictions.
In order to achieve these goals it is absolutely necessary to carry out the learned exercises independently and regularly and to integrate them into everyday life. Only in this way can therapeutic success be guaranteed in the long term.
In accordance with international guidelines, scolioses up to 20 ° are usually treated exclusively with physiotherapy. If the angle of curvature exceeds the 20 ° mark, a corset is prescribed in addition to physiotherapy. For scoliosis exceeding 50 ° to 60 °, the surgeon must decide on surgical stiffening.
