Schroth therapy

Three-dimensional therapy by the method of Katharina Schroth has established itself in the conservative treatment of scoliosis. It is based on asymmetric breathing in certain adjusted body positions: standing, sitting, lying on the side, prone and supine.

The therapy was pioneered by Katharina Schroth in 1920. The development of the method was continued by her daughter Christa Lehnert-Schroth and grandson Hans Rudolf Weiss. In 1997, the medical concern Asklepios opened the Katharina Schroth clinic in Bad Sobernheim, where patients from all over the world come to diagnose and treat scoliosis. Also, the clinic offers official training of specialists.


The essence of therapy is the active and informed engagement with the patient:

  • Informing the patient about what scoliosis is in general, its development, and specific type of patient’s scoliosis
  • Analysis of the initial position of the body with the patient
  • Analysis of each positional correction and patient’s feeling about it
  • Patient’s self-control during the exercise
  • Patient’s understanding of the need for long-term and regular therapy practice
