PSSE is Physiothrapy Scoliosis Specific exercises. These exercises are specifically designed to treat an individual curve pattern.

The Schroth Method is a physiotherapeutic treatment system which uses isometric exercises and rotational angular breath training patterns along with other exercises, to achieve neutral alignment of your spine. You will be able to strengthen the weak muscles and lengthen the tight asymmetrical muscles in your spine. Thereby, attaining your neutral spine alignment. You all also learn to breathe in and to your concavity caused by the curvature of your spine. Which may halt or in some cases decrease the curve progression.

History of the Schroth Method
The system of exercises for scoliosis was developed in the 1920s by Katharina Schroth (1894-1985), and further developed by her daughter Christa Lehnert-Schroth. By the 1960s, the Schroth Method had become the standard non-surgical treatment for scoliosis in Germany. Schroth treatment is currently supported in Germany by the federal health insurance system, and German orthopedic surgeons routinely refer patients for Schroth scoliosis exercise therapy.
