Katharina Schroth was born in Germany in the late 1800s with scoliosis. Doctors were unable to treat her condition so she dedicated her life to a cure.
She developed her own breathing technique and exercises to manage her scoliosis. She and her daughter opened a clinic to treat others and it is now a standard form of treatment to many around the world.
The Schroth Method is a non-surgical option for scoliosis treatment. It uses exercises customized for each patient to return the curved spine to a more natural position.
