Schroth Method for Scoliosis

The physical therapy experts at St. Charles bring the Schroth Method for Scoliosis to Long Island. The Schroth Method is a promising new rehabilitation technique which can straighten the spine and may even eliminate the need for back surgery for those with scoliosis.

The Schroth Method is shown to slow down or halt curvature of the spine, which is a hallmark of scoliosis. The Method can also help:

  • Decrease pain
  • Improve blood circulation
  • Make it easier to breath
  • Increase mobility
  • Improve postural stability and strength

St. Charles Rehabilitation’s Schroth physical therapists (PTs) are part of an elite group of PTs on Long Island, and in the United States, who are certified in this highly-specialized therapeutic technique. The Schroth-certified PTs at St. Charles tailor the Method’s breathing, stretching and strengthening exercises to precisely target each patient’s specific spinal curves and correct the curvature. They also teach our patients strategies for incorporating Schroth techniques into their daily activities.

The Schroth Method can be used with patients at all stages of scoliosis, from those newly diagnosed, to patients wearing a back brace, to those preparing for, or recovering from, spinal surgery. 

The Schroth Method is offered at the following Outpatient Rehabilitation Network locations:
