Scoliosis treatment with Schroth exercise therapy
Schroth best practice therapy in the Netherlands
The Schroth method is the only scoliosis treatment whose effect has been scientifically proven. The scoliosis treatment is targeted, specific and easy to apply in daily life. The therapy and postural advice are individually adapted to the personal situation, such as age, prognosis, fitness, brace or surgery.
HOW DOES SCHROTH SCOLIOSE THERAPY WORK?
The Schroth therapist will carefully examine the patient, and this will often happen between two mirrors. This allows the patient to observe the posture himself. For many patients it is special to see the curvature through scoliosis, and to be able to observe how they use their back during daily activities. For example, someone with scoliosis always has a preference for moving “with the bend”, so that the curvature is stimulated unnoticed and unintentionally. When you become aware of this, you can also change this.
Het oefenprogramma wordt aan de individuele situatie toegepast. Het doel van de therapie is de verergering van de scoliose te voorkomen en deze het liefst te verminderen.
FOR WHOM IS IT SUITABLE?
Schroth Best Practice is a suitable treatment for both children in growth and for (full-grown) teenagers. Older (operated) scoliosis patients, patients with asymmetrical posture and / or pain can also benefit greatly from this approach.
EXPERIENCE HAS PROVEN THAT WITH THE SCHROTH BEST PRACTICE TREATMENT EXCELLENT GOOD CORRECTIONS ARE POSSIBLE!
