USA BSPTS region

SBI believes that the Schroth method is important to help educate health care consumers on effective treatment options for their condition. We know that understanding and performing the method can both improve the quality of life of people with scoliosis and offer a cost-effective health care solution.

SBI began teaching in 2010. Students came to SBI by word of mouth recommendations from those who had taken our courses. SBI promoted its certification courses through short introductory courses, lecturing at universities, hospitals, state and national meetings including: the American Physical Therapy Association Combined Section Meet, School Nursing Convention and Nurse Practitioner meetings and presentations at SOSORT. SBI has also been involved in scoliosis support groups such as Curvy Girls. Currently, SBI has a an internet presence through Facebook, our website www.schroth-barcelonainstitute.com, a Linked-In group, and through our quarterly newsletters to past students. We provide a course feedback form to all students at the end of a course. The students continue to cite the organized and professional teaching style and ability of the SBI instructors who focus on heightening the standard of care for scoliosis patients.

BSPTS North American region has 5 instructors in US (SBI) and 1 in Canada. Since 2010, SBI instructors have held 62 C1 courses and 34 C2 courses. Currently, SBI has nearly 300 C1 certified physical therapists and over 250 C2 certified physical therapists.

SBI advertises scheduled course dates and locations on its website as well as offers offsite courses as requested. Currently, SBI clinic locations are located in Wisconsin, New York, Massachusetts and California. In the past year offsite locations have included Texas, North Carolina, New Jersey as well as the Netherlands, China and Canada.

SBI instructors have conducted teacher retreats since 2016, most recently in 2018 in Wauwatosa, Wisconsin and 2019 in Boston area in Massachusetts. Weekly email communication and monthly skype discussions allow for exchange of information to benefit all the instructors.

SBI currently employs a part time administrator – Tia Abuls – who assists with website management, meeting minutes, and other administrative functions. We cooperatively fund Tia’s expenses, as well as the additional shared group expenses (website, liability insurance, legal and accounting fees, and newsletter publications) through a per-student set dollar contribution to the SBI. We do not share in course revenues but manage revenues and individual course-related expenses through our own independent businesses
