Schroth Method is physiotherapeautic treatment system that uses isometric exercises to strengthen or lengthen certain muscles. Ultimately, the goal is to either “push” or “pull” the spinal curvature back in normal range by using your own muscles. Additionally, Physical Therapy for Scoliosis dramatically reduces the pain, appearance of scoliosis and increases the physical abilities of the patient.
