Who will benefit?
The Schroth (TM) method of treatment for scoliosis has a strong evidence base. The Scoliosis Research Society has recently endorsed the concept of the conservative management of scoliosis as being appropriate in the management of this disorder. It is no longer acceptable to follow the "wait and see" approach in the management of scoliosis.
Scoliosis: Is a lateral curvature of the spine. Most individuals who develop this lateral curve of the spine have what is called an idiopathic scoliosis, since the cause is unknown.
