Here's what you should know:

1. Through the Schroth Method, providers direct specific therapeutic treatment to de-rotate, elongate and stabilize the spine. Patients can perform the exercises either sitting, lying down or standing.

2. The exercises combine muscular symmetry, rotational angular breathing and mirrors to increase patient awareness on their posture.  

3. The program's duration is contingent on the person and their condition.
