Schroth Therapy today is an evidence-based method of physical rehabilitation for scoliosis and other spinal deformities. There are cohort studies which clearly show that the program established by Katharina Schroth and improved by her daughter, Christa Lehnert-Schroth, PT, can benefit nearly all signs and symptoms of scoliosis. A prospective controlled study clearly shows the effectiveness of Schroth methodology and a recent randomized controlled study from Turkey has elevated evidence for Schroth to Level I.
The Schroth Best Practice Academy board, an international team of highly skilled specialists in the conservative treatment of scoliosis and other spinal deformities, offer the following list of fully trained (SBP basic certified) practitioners to patients seeking trusted care:
Schroth Best Practice Centers:
Australia and Oceania
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 case presentations during the advanced course.
All persons on our lists have agreed that their names and contact data are published on this website. The only purpose of the use of their personal data is to provide a list of professionals where patients worldwide can find a specialized therapist / orthotist. The data will not be used for other purposes and will not be processed for other reasons. No automated processing of this data will take place. Persons / therapists listed have the right to withdraw their permission as well as the right to demand correction whenever needed. No other data of the persons / therapists as listed are recorded or processed.
Fully licensed trainees advertising other concepts of Schroth than the Schroth Best Practice program® or mix our treatment protocols with other unproven methods (Pilates, Yoga, CLEAR, NuSchroth, SpineCor etc.) will immediately be removed from this listing as it is necessary to ensure patients receive instruction in our evidence-based specialized approach and can find professionals on our homepage dedicated to our updated concept of physical rehabilitation. This also applies to SBP therapists who refer patients to bracing services not approved by the Academy board. This has become necessary as there are bracing workshops advertising trademarks they have no permission for and selling under average quality braces. For the sake of treatment security patients should be advised to visit an approved bracing service.
Only listed academy board members with an instructor designation are qualified to teach our Schroth methodology to other professionals.
