Schroth Scoliosis Treatment UK: Alex Szabo, Nottingham Osteopath. At the end of 2018, Alex travelled to Denmark to undertake a training course in the “Schroth Best Practice® Scoliosis treatment. Schroth Best Practice® is a further development of the original Schroth method, invented by Katharina Schroth.
Alex was keen to improve and broaden his range of available treatments. Scoliosis affects mostly girls and women, and we feel that it’s important to have other options before considering invasive surgery. Dr. Hans-Rudolf Weiss (grandchild of Katharina Schroth) has updated and improved her grandmother’s research with to make the treatment of scoliosis more effective and time-saving as well as giving the patient ownership and independence from the treatment system. Many people in the UK are advised to take the surgery option because of there so few Osteopaths who are specifically trained to work on Scoliosis. This is why Alex wanted to fill that gap and offer help to anyone suffering from this debilitating spinal condition.
