Schroth Method Scoliosis Exercises

There are numerous Schroth Method exercises. The combination of exercises an individual performs
is based on each unique scoliosis. A few examples of various Schroth exercises are below:

Scoliologic Best Practice

Incorrect Seated Posture

Correctly Seated for Curve Pattern
Best Practice for the conservative care of scoliosis begins with addressing the scoliosis patients body
mechanics and posture during daily activities. Activities of Daily Living (ADLs)-3D Exercises Made Easy-
when performed correctly, may help reduce the possibility of curve progression. Simple adjustments during
daily life, depending on a patients curve, as seen in the photos above, may make a difference for the scoliosis
patient.
Best Practice also incorporates physio-logic. Treating a mild curve with physio-logic exercises offers the
patient a relatively easy, proactive approach, whose instruction and proficiency can be accomplished in a short
period of time. This new approach is a viable alternative to the prevailing tenet of watch and wait.
Physio-logic takes a unique approach, employing specific movements to help mobilize the spine in the
sagittal plane to re-establish thoracic kyphosis and lumbar lordosis. These symmetrical exercises are performed
repeatedly. First, the patient must actively neutralize the lumbar lordosis while tilting the pelvis anteriorly and
re-establish the neutral thoracic kyphosis in a backward direction.
To allow for additional correction in the frontal and transverse planes the physio-logic program then adds
asymmetric exercises for three-dimensional correction. These corrections are performed as simultaneous
movements to allow mobilization in all three planes.
The current physio-logic treatment protocol, used singularly addresses mild curves, with a sagital
malalignment, between 15 and 20 However, with moderate and severe curves, instruction in ADLs and
physio-logic exercises are used as an adjunct to the more intensive Schroth exercises.
