It was not until 2019 when Andrew turned 15 years old that we realized, after he had developed a sore shoulder, that he had a significant scoliosis… I was shocked. Andrew's scoliosis had progressed into a double major…an Orthopaedic Surgeon…informed us that our only option was spinal fusion surgery…I found a reference to the Schroth Method in a journal article regarding the treatment of idiopathic scoliosis… Since we returned from the intensive [Schroth] program…We both feel that the Schroth Method is helping him to better manage his scoliosis. He remains pain free and continues to participate in the physical activities and sports he enjoys.

My experience at the Scoliosis Therapy Centre was a very positive one…
