Scoliosis Therapy Centre

Our Scoliosis Therapy Centre provides Schroth Method scoliosis exercise therapy for individuals suffering with idiopathic scoliosis. We provide programs for juvenile, adolescent and adult idiopathic scoliosis.

Our Schroth Therapy Residential Programs adhere to The International Scientific Society on Scoliosis Orthopaedic and Rehabilitation Treatment (SOSORT) 2016 Guidelines for the conservative treatment of adolescent idiopathic scoliosis during growth.


SOSORT's treatment goals as stated in the 2016 Guidelines are:

1. to stop curve progression at puberty (or possibly even reduce it)
2. to prevent or treat respiratory dysfunction
3. to prevent or treat spinal pain syndromes
4. to improve aesthetics via postural correction

The desired patient outcomes of individuals suffering with idiopathic scoliosis is influenced by the their age and their likely risk of progression. However, irrespective of age, improving body aesthetics, and psychological well-being are desired outcomes for both adolescent and adult patients. A prime concern of adolescents, at risk of progression, is preventing progression to avoid surgery; for adults it's preventing progression, relief of pain syndromes, and improved breathing.

A program of Schroth Method scoliosis exercise therapy is customized for patients based on their major idiopathic curvature type.
