Scoliosis is a three dimensional spinal disorder and therefore should be treated using a 3D approach. The schroth method uses 3 dimensional posture specific exercises and breathing to stabilize the spine. The exercises work on axial elongation and derotation to decrease spinal curve, and reduce pain/ stiffness. The Schroth Method is backed by peer reviewed articles (a peer-reviewed article is published in peer-reviewed journals only after review and critiques by multiple scholars in the field in order to make sure that the articles reflect solid evidence).
