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

When applying for a course please submit your valid 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.

From 2018 on we will no longer provide individual 2-days A-Level courses. There will be four and a half day Schroth Best Practice (SBP) courses and advanced courses (SBP advanced), only.

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.

Prior to the course please read

- this academy site in full!
- this course site
- the info history 
- the info background site

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:

Additionally we provide advanced courses 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.
