    Patient Resources

    The Schroth Method is an approach for treating scoliosis that uses customized exercises (PSSE – Physiotherapy Specific Scoliosis Exercises) & breathing techniques that are uniquely designed to help stabilize and reduce scoliosis curvatures. Most conventional exercise are done the same on both sides of the body but PSSE are applied unilaterally and designed to help correct the imbalances of the scoliosis spine by lengthening and strengthening the weakened muscles on the inside of the curvatures, so you can stop worrying about future problems, ongoing curve progression and anxiety about how the things you do on a daily basis might be causing more damage to your spine.
