Schroth method for Scoliosis
RECENT studies conducted showed an increase of scoliosis sufferers among younger children. Eleven year-old girls are starting to get curved spines. In Asia, the incidence of scoliosis sufferers is close to 25% of the population, compared to 15% in the Western countries.
Idiopathic Scoliosis has been proven to cause significant physical and emotional stress as it continues to progress well beyond skeletal maturity, and commonly for the remainder of the patient’s life.
The physical complications of idiopathic scoliosis can be quite serious, ranging from spinal and limb pain, to organ stress and loss of function, even heart-lung distress. Some of the other complications include headaches, chronic fatigue, digestive problems including constipation and diarrhea, joint pain, difficulty sleeping, loss of concentration, and chronic muscle tightness and spasms.
The emotional effects of idiopathic scoliosis can be every bit as real and serious as the physical effects.
Juvenile patients with idiopathic scoliosis were unhappier with their lives. They reported more physical complaints, had lower self esteem and higher depression. Adult patients reported more psychological and physical impairment.
To date, the bulk of the information you will find related to Adolescent Idiopathic Scoliosis (AIS) on the Internet supports the use of bracing and surgery. Initially, treatment from a doctor consist of “observation only” until the Cobb angle (a measurement used for evaluation of curves in scoliosis) progresses to 25 degrees, at which point the patient is placed in brace. If bracing is unsuccessful in stabilizing the progression of the disease, which is frequently the case, surgery is the only other option that the medical community has to offer.
Surgical intervention, while potentially necessary at times, is only symptomatic treatment for a much complex condition. Some say that surgery should be a last resort for the treatment of idiopathic scoliosis, only after every other option for treatment has been thoroughly exhausted.

Schroth Method started in the 1920’s by Katharina Schroth who developed the method based on her personal experience with scoliosis as a teenager. She started sharing her techniques with patients and eventually set up her own clinic in Germany. Her daughter, Christa Lehnert Schroth, helped her further develop the theory underlying the Schroth Method while grandson. Dr Hans-Rudolph Weiss MD, continued the tradition on training. In 1985, Asklepios Katharina-Schroth Klinic (a German company which runs hospitals and clinics) bought over the Schroth family business.
Today, over one thousand patients are treated annually at this hospital in Germany.
Conservative treatment for spinal deformities is well accepted in Europe with large centres in Germany, Spain and Italy.
Spinal Inc’s treatment includes physiotherapy which is based on the Schroth Method and CLEAR’s treatments, accompanied with a home exercise program which is customized for each patient’s specific needs.

They encourage you to learn more about how their approach goes far beyond typical conservation idiopathic scoliosis care, and why they believe they can demonstrate a measurable reduction in the severity of Idiopathic Scoliosis on a X-ray in as quickly as six months.
Based on the results achieved from previous patients over the past several years, they believe that the methods for treating idiopathic scoliosis integrated by Spinal Inc is one the safest and most effective conservation treatment for the correction of idiopathic scoliosis.
