Courses


The Schroth Best Practice basic courses with a standardized content are for physiotherapists, occupational therapists, chiropractors, osteopaths (in Japan Judo therapists) and medical physicians only! No orthotists are admitted to the Schroth Best Practice courses!

When applying for a course please submit your valid medical professional license and your CV via e-mail to the course instructor / organizer!

In preparation for the course please be advised to read the textbook 'Schroth Therapy' prior to the course. This will allow to make most out of the course and grab the contents easily.

We do not regularly provide course materials other than the book (not included in the course fee) and we would prefer your preparation for the course reading this book prior to the course as this course will use a more practical approach to the Schroth Best Practice method of rehabilitation. You do not need to write during the course, just follow the instructor closely and you will achieve the best possible results.
The textbook can be ordered via Amazon or directly at the publishing company.

2nd. Edition now available!

Prior to the course please read

- this academy site in full!
- this course site
- the info history 
- the info background site
- the Schroth Therapy textbook as well as
- the description of the ALS classification

As we provide practical courses in the first place we would not like to have the participant’s attention attracted by some documents rather than watching and learning what is happening on the patients treated. Primary goals of the courses are to
 
- experience corrective movements (feel it)
- visualize the corrective movement (see it)
- learn how to use the technical aids (teach it)
- learn how to best approach the patient (teach it).

The theory can be found in the book. And what is not found in the book is not needed for practical treatment of scoliosis patients. If someone is interested in more theoretical background information this can easily be found on this site or can be downloaded from open access papers. Many papers can be found and downloaded from the literature listed here: http://publicationslist.org/hr.weiss.

Additionally we provide advanced courses (Course SBPadv) for those who wish to specialize in the field of scoliosis and other spinal deformities. At least one year of experience with the SBP program prior to admission will be necessary. The advanced trainee will share his experiences with a minimum of 10 case presentations during the advanced course. The case presentations (Power Point) have to be submitted to the course instructor 4 weeks prior to the course together with a copy of the SBP basic (former B-Level) certificate. We expect that attendees of the SBP advanced course have read 

- Schroth's Textbook of Scoliosis and other Spinal Deformities,

our recent comprehensive textbook (read sample pages) covering most aspects of spinal deformities.  

As it has become evident that therapists from time to time need an update we will offer a 2-day refresher courses (Course SBPref). The trainee will share his experiences with a minimum of 3 case presentations during the refresher course. In order to stay listed on this site attendees will have to book such a course two years after the basic, or three years after having completed an advanced course.
