ISST Camp

ISST Camp is an intensive scoliosis-specific group treatment according to the original Katharina Schroth Method. The camp is primarily tailored for patients with idiopathic scoliosis and kyphosis (including Scheuermann’s disease).

The purpose of the camp is:

  • to educate patients about their own specific curve type and how it affects their posture,
  • to teach patients the home exercise program (HEP) aimed at recalibration of the posture affected by scoliosis or kyphosis using their own ability to auto‐correct in all three planes of the body,
  • to teach them how to use Schroth principles in activities of daily living (ADL) to assure constant active correction throughout the day
  • to stabilize the corrected posture by emphasizing the importance of compliance with the HEP and ADL
