Nikola Jevtic

People with the idiopathic scoliosis and kyphosis forms of spinal deformity can benefit by attending an International Schroth Three-Dimensional Scoliosis Therapy Camp, the first of its kind in the U.S., from July 12 to 18 at the Degrees Scoliosis Rehab Center at PhysioNetics, in Naples. Led by Nikola Jevtic, regional Schroth instructor from Germany, and Nicola Varveris, a doctor of physical therapy and certified Schroth therapist, the intensive group treatment is conducted according to the original Katherina Schroth method and is limited to 12 patients.

On the first day, each participant will be assessed and a home-exercise program will be prescribed based on their specific curve patterns. The camp consists of four-and-a-half hours of daily treatments provided in three, one-and-a-half-hour sessions with a one-hour break between each session. A light snack and lunch will be provided.

Organizers relate that the approach is a proven exercise method to help reverse curves in the spine or stop the progression caused by the ailments.

Cost: $1,500 includes Schroth-specific tools, T-shirt and informational materials. Location: 1575 Pine Ridge Rd., Ste. 15. For more information or to register, call 239-593-4348 or visit PhysioNeticsTherapy.com.
