We do not aim at...... we simply do! The Best Practice Academy is the foundation of the instructors for the Schroth Best Practice program®. Trainees can apply for a full basic course lasting 4 and a half days and after that for a 3 full day advanced course.
The Schroth Best Practice program® is the consequent development of the original program by Katharina Schroth initially designed for curves exceeding 70° Cobb (3-curve program).

The next step of this development was made by Christa Lehnert-Schroth (divorced Weiss) in the 70s of the last century. This was the time Christa Lehnert-Schroth developed special exercises for double major curve and lumbar curve patterns (3- and 4-curve program).
The recent step was the simplification of the Schroth program and the 'easy to perform' add ons based on recent evidence by Dr. Hans-Rudolf Weiss, Grandson of Katharina Schroth and son of Christa Lehnert-Schroth. This program, the only one based on the original, is called the 'Schroth Best Practice' program.
The Schroth Best Practice program® is the recent development of the original program provided by the Grandson of Katharina Schroth.
The Best Practice Academy now is arranging courses worldwide inviting professionals from all over the world to participate in the most recent developments in the field of physiotherapy but bracing as well for the safety and benefit of the patients.
The recent developments in the field of spinal deformity rehabilitation have been presented in different medical journals and books and high level evidence has been achieved.
A patients' guide to scoliosis is available and is distributed worldwide, but also can be ordered locally in Germany. This patient guide has been translated to Chinese, Russian and Korean and actually also is available in Indonesian.
A new book describing the actual development of the Schroth program as well as the recent developments of braces is also distributed worldwide.
Now also available in Chinese.....
