Schroth therapy has a long tradition. It was founded in 1921 by Katharina Schroth in Meissen in the eastern part of Germany. In 1961 Katharina and her daughter Christa moved to Bad Sobernheim and in 1983 established their clinic – the “Katharina Schroth Klinik.” The further development of the Schroth method was developed mainly by the head of the physical therapy department Axel Hennes and Udo Roevenich and scientifically proven by the orthopedist HR Weiss the medical director and son from Christa.
Axel Hennes founded International Schroth Three Dimensional Scoliosis Therapy (ISST) -International with the ISST-Training Institute. The ISST training enables physical therapists to provide sufficient conservative treatment for patients with spinal deviations mainly for idiopathic scoliosis and kyphosis. The goal is to prevent surgery, decelerate, or stop the progression and develop effective coping strategies for the patients to improve their social participation and activities in their daily living. This has also a positive effect on the general HQL (health-related quality of life) for children, adults, and elderly patients suffering from scoliosis and kyphosis. Full certification training of ISST Program consists of Part 1 & Part 2 which will be covered in 5 days respectively leading to an official certificate from the official ISST Training Insititute in Germany,
