What is the Schroth Method?

The Schroth method is a conservative treatment approach using tactile stimulus, muscle activation, and breathing techniques to support improved posture and reinforce proper alignment.

Goals of this treatment include:

  • Establishing an awareness of postural positioning
  • Activation of muscles in the direction of correction and elongation of the spine
  • Breath support of proper alignment

An individual plan of care is developed to meet the curve pattern, fitness status and level of function of each patient.

Schroth-certified physical therapists are currently available at the following CHKD sports medicine locations:
