schroth method

The Hundred Wellness Centre is dedicated to bringing you the best resources and services to support you in achieving optimal wellness, health and movement. Our centre is the only location in UAE that offers the non-invasive Schroth Method exercises for the treatment of Scoliosis.

Our in-house Physiotherapist – Nora Sträeter – is a certified Schroth Therapist, that specializes in the treatment of Scoliosis, as well as other spinal conditions.

The Schroth Method has a functional approach of treating postural abnormalities. Through special exercise programs your child or teenager will achieve optimum spinal straightness, while preventing further contortion and minimizing the negative symptoms related to this condition.

After carrying out an initial assessment of each patient, Nora carefully educates and guides each patient through the exercises utilizing a specialized studio, where the equipment has been specially designed to accommodate the widest range of Schroth Method exercises possible. Under Nora’s watchful eyes, the patient perform a series of specific exercises that develop the inner muscles of the rib cage, and de-rotate any spinal abnormalities using corrective breathing techniques. The movements are modified according to individual conditions, and with tactile stimulus the child is directed where to breathe in order to activate and elongate the muscles and decrease the curve.

To compliment school semesters in the UAE, a class structure has been developed that provides both flexibility and availability for Nora’s patients through private, duet, and group classes (up to 4 patients per class).
