Schroth Physical Therapists in the US

The Hunter College Physical Therapy Program is the first US based PT program to host certification courses in the Schroth Method of Management of Scoliosis based upon Katharina-Schroth. The listing below provides contact information of physical therapists that have completed this certification process at Hunter College or elsewhere. This listing is provided as a service to any interested individuals. Verification of any other qualifications or competencies is the sole responsibility of the user of this information. Go to our continued education page for information on our next series of Schroth certification courses.

The physical therapists listed below have either completed a series of courses hosted by the Hunter College Physical Therapy Program in collaboration with Axel Maier-Hennes, Senior Physiotherapist, Schroth Instructor, Katharina-Schroth-Klinik, or have been certified by the Barcelona Scoliosis Physical Therapy School. Providing this listing only verifies that these physical therapists have completed the full series of courses and examinations and are therefore authorized to practice in accordance with the method of Katharina-Schroth for the management of scoliosis. Continued licensure or compliance with all professional, ethical and legal requirements to practice as a physical therapist in their state is not continually verified by Hunter College.

All Physical Therapists listed below are Certified as Schroth Scoliosis Therapists.  If you are a Schroth trained physical therapist and would like to be added to this listing, contact Gary Krasilovsky.  This listing is divided into the seven regions of the United States.  Therapists are listed in alphabetical order by region.
