Patients who come for treatment should expect to actively participate in learning his/her particular curvature. Patients will learn corrections for daily activities and exercises to take home and perform correctly without the help of the therapist.

Three-Dimensional Treatment for Scoliosis. Christa Lehnert-Schroth, P.T.
Subsequent appointments are crucial to continual learning and reassessment.
The patient should follow up initially at 1 month then every 3 months.
After the growth period has stopped patients can follow up biannually or as needed.
Follow ups always made on an individual basis.
1-2 hour initial assessment
Subsequent visits are 1 on 1 with the PT at every visit.
The patient's progress is continually being reassessed for progression with the treatment method.
Sessions are individually adapted to each patient as no two patients (or curves!) are alike!
Summer Intensive Program:
5 day intensive Schroth program in 2 sessions/day (4 hours/day)

The Schroth 3 dimensional treatment method is recommended for patients with idiopathic scoliosis starting at even a "mild" curvature. Due to need for body awareness and commitment required, it is recommended for patients older than 10/11 years of age.
Adults with scoliosis could also benefit to reduce curve progression; however due to long standing asymmetrical loading and muscle/soft tissue adaptations, treatment usually progresses much slower.
Post surgical patients would also benefit to ensure above and below fixation does not continue with compensatory curvature
3-5hours/day (1-2 sessions). This is ideal for out of town patients that can schedule for several days in a row as well as patients that are new to Schroth for a better understanding and diving into the program.
