Schroth Method Frequently Asked Questions

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).

What Clients Are Saying...

"My 13 year old daughter has been seeing Donné... and wearing a Boston brace for 23 hours a day. We decided to pursue any and all alternative solutions, along with the brace, in order to hopefully avoid surgery... Donne has been wonderful with my daughter – very understanding & encouraging. My daughter says she always feels taller and straighter after a session with Donne, and she already feels like she is more aware of her posture throughout the day. She has also been an awesome resource about all things scoliosis..she is always willing to take the time to answer our questions and ease our minds. We are so thankful to have Donne help guide us through this sometimes scary and overwhelming diagnosis!"

"I started with Donné at ScoliosisPTJax because I was having low back pain. She was gentle with her physical therapy approach and was able to identify the source of the pain. I love the Schroth Method and the way it integrates posture exercises into all the activities and exercises we do.
I am feeling stronger, taller and have no back pain!"
