Schroth exercises for scoliosis consist of a combination of stretching, strengthening and breathing techniques, according to SchrothMethod.com. Each of the exercises are tailored to each patient's curves. Although the exercises can be done at home, they are first taught by Schroth-certified physical therapists.
The process involves three steps, as stated on SchrothMethod.com. The first is to make corrections to the pelvis to place it in proper position. The second step involves spinal elongation and rotational angular breaching techniques to move the spine and ribs into proper position. The final step involves the use of isometric exercises to strengthen trunk muscles.
