CorpoSchema Pilates & Rehab is a physical therapy boutique studio that specializes on the treatment of spinal deviations and postural misalignments. 


A little background:

Physiotherapy Scoliosis Specific Exercises (PSSE) following the "Schroth Method" are used in physiotherapy to treat conditions like scoliosis, hyperkyphosis, and flat back syndrome. The Schroth Method originated in Germany in the 1920s, and further evolved as the Barcelona Scoliosis Physical Therapy School founded by Dr. Rigo (developer of the Rigo-Cheneau brace). The Schroth Method taught by the BSPTS is a specific approach to physical therapy for the treatment of spinal deviations that emphasizes the use of three dimensional exercises and breathing techniques, which are designed to help corrent the alignment of the spine and improve overall function.  Making the Schroth Method more available to people in the Miami area is one of our objectives at CorpoSchema.  

The Schroth Method is generally considered to be a safe and effective treatment for scoliosis, although more research is needed to fully understand its benefits. The Scoliosis Research Society has recognized the Schroth Method as a suitable therapeutic option for the conservative management of spinal deformities.
