The method of Katharina Schroth - history, principles and current development The history of conservative treatment of scoliosis is rather long and leads us back to the original methods of Hippocrates (460-370 BC) [1]. Although more than two thousand years have passed since the century of Hippocrates, the main approach of conservative scoliosis treatment has been based on mechanical viewpoints still in the early 20th Century and in most of the approaches still existing today.

But there are times when the subject or the participants in a debate so capture the public imagination that otherwise dry, technical matters of discord among researchers erupt into the media, eliciting a wide array of opinions from experts and non-experts.

And there is a controversy of just this type bubbling away for many years now in linguistics.

Open Access - SPARC Research provides the foundation of modern society. Research leads to breakthroughs, and communicating the results of research is what allows us to turn breakthroughs into better lives—to provide new treatments for disease, to implement solutions for challenges like global warming, and to build entire industries around what were once just ideas. However, our current system for communicating research is crippled by a centuries old model that hasn’t been updated to take advantage of 21st century technology: Governments provide most of the funding for research—hundreds of billions of dollars annually—and public institutions employ a large portion of all researchers.Researchers publish their findings without the expectation of compensation. Our current system for communicating research uses a print-based model in the digital age.
