  1. I have the same problem.. My spine looks exactly like the skeleton.. I'll be your model if u want.. So we can actually see progress.. Lol

  2. Last February, I'd been to an X-ray ,I don't have scoliosis.. But after 9months, I'd been on an X-ray again, the result, I have mild scoliosis.. It sucks.. 😓😓

  3. hi, and sorry for my english, i am a physical therapist from morocco, i always been intrested by the schroth method, my question is, do you teach this method inside of your center pls? or do you organise any workshops about this it ? because i don't speak german to go to germanny to learn it, my english is not very good, but i think it is enough to understand and learn the method

  4. How to sleep,what to eat to strengthen our bone?

  5. I have scoliosis and the same my daughter hope you help us to fix it doctor..

  6. Excellent explanation how to use Schroth exercises for S thoracic curve.

  7. If ur shoulders still not even, how I believe u have the right cure

  8. Oh sure this is not at all confusing or complicated

  9. If this type of therapy is meant to be "3-D-Skoliose-Therapie nach Schroth" I have to correct you: what is shown in your video is in no way the schroth-principle! I am a german PT and a certified Schroth-Therapist, learned this method at it's original place of foundation, the Katharina-Schroth-Klinik in Bad Sobernheim, Germany. And I am working with scoliosis patients in my PT-clinic. I think, if you want to give properly advices about treating scoliosis according to the Schroth-method, you should do that in a more correct way. The correction of the lumbar arc (left-convex) is – for example – to correct by lowering and slightly backward rotate the right pelvis (and not the left, as you shown it in your video, this way you emphasise the pathologic lumbar arc). Next, the thoracal right-convex arc is to correct by elevating the left arm (in your video the arms are hanging passive downwards), furthermore the way and direction of breathing was not told in a right way by you and so on… you are welcome to Germany to get a real training in the method of Schroth – and afterwards you will not make such misstakes anymore. Best regards, Ralph Lacher (www.physiotherapie-lacher.de)

  10. I am a master clinician who specializes in Orthopedic Physical Therapy with over 37 years of clinical experience … This video is absolutely absurd …
    1) Although in theory I am in agreement with what you are attempting to accomplish here (and I am pleasantly surprised that you have a reasonable command of the anatomy, physiology, biomechanics, kinesiology, etc. … this procedure is far too complicated for 95% of the patients we all primarily see … 2) Why didn't you use a patient with scoliosis… One can see virtual correction in the procedure, but this is with a non-scoliosis compromised subject … please attend an accredited School of Allied Health and/or School of Medicine and obtain your Doctorate in Physical Therapy … specifically specialize in orthopedics … and become a Certified Orthopedic Specialist … there are a myriad of more effective techniques that are far less complicated for the patient to perform that yield far greater results in far less time … the number of pseudo-medical professionals that continue to play "Physical Therapist" never ceases to amaze me !!!

  11. I think I would lose my mind trying to remember what breath is for what area, what sound to make as I exhale, what body area I'm trying to lift, engage, turn, widen, raise, lower, rotate, fill out, support… And those are "just a few ideas"? Who was Schroff-someone with OCD?

  12. I haven't seen that supine treatment before with lifting of legs to engage tranverse ab.
    The one I am famliar with for right thoracic "s"curve, is placing wedges at the convexities right thoracic and left lumbar (pushing them forward and inward). Also pads under Left upper shoulder and right pelvis for corrective derotation of those areas. Then breathing into the concavities.
    Do you think it would be beneficial if I also incorporated the flexing at the hip to engage Transverse abs with the placement I described?

  13. Hello…any link to the results ? Before – after pictures?

  14. Hi!! I love your videos. I am sporty and I am very careful with the movements I do: I do lots of core exercises (especially with the Swiss Ball) then lunges, pull ups, push-ups, plunks and other good exercises perfectly executed such as pilates squats and deadlifts with very light weights. I have a scolioses, not a very serious one, but still, it is there. I am 40. As a young man (I was 15-16) a specialist (a doctor who was also a professor at university specialises in scoliosis and postural problems) suggested that I should have a heel lift of 5 mm to start (even though the gap was of 1 cm or more). The reason? Easy, my legs have the same length and more than a 5 mm correction would increase the thoracic curve; basically the lumbar curve decreases while the thoracic increases…also he added something about the rotation of the spine or of the pelvis, I can't remember. I did X rays after a few months (wearing the heel lift) and the doctor said that it was working (in terms of preventing the scoliosis from getting worse) however he added that as I turned 20 the heel lift would be useless since it does not fix the problem and just prevents the problem from getting worse. I stopped wearing the heel lift when I was 38 just to see what would happen. I was fine for the first few months then, after 4-5 months, I started having pain down my left femur and knee (not to talk of my lower back). I went to see a physiotherapist who said that my lumbar scoliosis almost disappears when I lay on my belly and but it is evident when I stand; this is due to a postural problem. He measured my legs again and said they have the same length. He told me to wear a thicker heel lift to correct the pelvis even though he explained to me that my thoracic curve would increase (he saw that while doing attempts to reduce my lumbar curve by using different heel lifts). I explained to him that a specialist in the past told me that that could be a dangerous corrections but he said that it would be fine. I did not completely trust him and I started to wear a 6mm heel lift (around half the needed heel lift according to him). I was feeling well, finally!!! However, after 7 weeks I started having pain mainly on the other side of my body; the right femur which had never hurt before)…my back pain is not as bad but the pain has moved to the other side…. Now I am puzzled. Any ideas about what the right fix might be? Thanks!!! Daniel

  18. who would I go to to get examined, I feel so unbalanced, especially with most of my lifts lately

  19. i feel i have such case my right shoulder has a lower level than may left shoulder eventually I have a hard times to breath whenever I staightened up my back and some pain so I just set myvself where I can be comfortable with but I didt go to doctor bcoz lack of funds.

  20. thank you shila, my niece 14year old have a scoliosis, i will try breath techniques with her.

  21. Hi…thanks for the great video. This is exactly my scoliosis situation and I knew that new breath method would help but tremendously tough. Subscribed and wait for more techniques. Thank you.

  22. Interesting. Thank you for sharing this. I've been looking for more information on scoliosis to try and find some ways to relieve pain on my own, but have only found that not much is known. Where would I be able to find those lifts, and how would I know how much lift I need?
    Also, does my scoliosis diagnosis definitely mean one leg is shorter? I was never told that, but it feels that way.

  23. How much time do we need to do these exercise?
