We mean postural control by self-correction during various daily activities. This allows people with scoliosis to more easily form their newly formed posture and process it as a motor engram (we encode the brain by repeating a certain action, in this case movement). The purpose of self-correction is for new positions to become a new conscious corrected posture, which contributes to avoiding further progression of scoliosis.
Schroth camp is a seven-day intensive treatment that treats people who have a spinal deformity - scoliosis, kyphosis or lordosis. The Schroth method, which is based on three-dimensional correction of spinal deformities, is performed at the camp. The most common deformity of the spine is scoliosis, the term "healing of scoliosis" is often mentioned, however, when we talk about the conservative type of rehabilitation then we talk about "correction of scoliosis".
The Schroth method was founded in 1921 in Germany, but the spread of the method outside the borders of the German state didn’t begin until 2008. Axel Hennes, one of the bearers of the method, made a big effort to begin with his idea of spreading the method in other countries and other parts of the world.
Katharina Schroth was born on February 22, 1894 in Dresden, Germany. In February 1983, the clinic was renamed the ,,Katharina Schroth Clinic” as part of the method's founder. Katharina Schroth passed away on February 19, 1985. Katharina had big help from her daughter, Christa Lehnert Schroth, who was a physiotherapist and who played a key role in the further development of the method that her mother devised. After Christa divorced her first husband, with whom she had a son, Weiss, she married Adalbert Lehnert, who helps her build a new institute and who also helps treat patients. Christa ran "Katharina Schroth Clinic" until 2015 when she was sold to Axlepios.
Scoliosis was recognized at the 5th century BC, when Hippocrates described it, and also treatment for scoliosis. At the end of the 20th century, Katharina Schroth developed a three-dimensional treatment for the correction of scoliosis. From 1921, a new form of non-operative treatment of scoliosis began, which consisted of specific postural corrections, a corrective breathing pattern and correction of postural perception.
