Schroth Method for Scoliosis

The Schroth Barcelona method is one type of physical therapy treatment available to Stanford Children’s Health patients with scoliosis and kyphosis. We are the only children’s hospital in the Bay Area to offer the Schroth method. Through a variety of techniques including strengthening, breathing and mobilization, the Schroth method aims to help patients improve their awareness of their posture and maintain that awareness throughout their daily lives.

Our Schroth-certified physical therapist customizes treatment programs based on each patient’s unique needs. On average, patients are seen once per week for 12 weeks. Patients choosing the Schroth method will be given a set of exercises to practice at home. This will culminate in an exercise program that will be integrated into the patient’s daily activities and used throughout life.
