This is the only centre in the world to offer rehabilitation treatment based on the Katharina Schroth method for English-speaking patients.

All medical staff are fully trained and certified in the Katharina Schroth method.

It is a completely safe, non-surgical and non-invasive treatment that has been used successfully in Europe since 1921.

The obvious questions are;

Is this going to be a residential treatment center like the German versions, or is treatment on an outpatient basis, or both.

What is the background of the medical staff? UK trained? GP's? Orthopaedic consultants? How have they been trained? What other staff will be employed? Qualified physiotherapists.??


The two british consultants I have dealt with re my daughter have been, to put it mildly, very uncommittal about schroth, stating amongst others that his german colleagues never mentioned the method when discussing scoliosis treatments, which makes you wonder whether it is a fringe treatment rather than mainstream. The other consultant would have expected solid published evidenced published if the method would have significant long term results.

Could you point me towards what you would consider the best published evidence?

As far as I know, there are no long term published results.

May I ask why the phone number of the clinic is the same as that of (I presume) your father's video-editing company? Does the clinic not have a number of its own, or are you sharing premises with his business?

Who are the medical staff - how many of them are there, are they permanently employed by the clinic (ie working there full-time), and are they quallified medical professionals?
