Apart from being a pilates studio, CorpoSchema Pilates & Rehab is a physical therapy clinic that specializes in the treatment of spinal deformities and postural defects. 

Conditions such as scoliosis, hyperkyphosis, and flat back syndrome are treated with Physiotherapy Scoliosis Specific Exercises (PSSE); following the "Schroth Method."  The Schroth Method originated in Germany in the 1920s, further evolved in Barcelona under Dr. Rigo (developer of the Rigo-Cheneau brace), and it's the main physiotherapeutic approach utilized in CorpoSchema to address a variety of spinal deformities.  One of our goals at CorpoSchema is to make the Schroth Method, as taught by the internationally recognized Physical Therapy School of Barcelona (BSPTS), more accessible to people in the Miami region. The Barcelona Scoliosis Physical Therapy School Schroth Method or BSPTS has been identified by the Scoliosis Research Society as a viable treatment option in the conservative treatment of spinal deformities.  

Beatriz Rodriguez, founder of CorpoSchema, has been a Schroth practitioner since 2011. Her involvement in the conservative care of spinal deformities, specialized fitness training, and health care can be summarized as follows:
