The Dorn Method
A gentle way to get into shape!
By Anita Bowden
Back pain and joint problems can be a huge issue for a lot of us and often finding a safe, natural and effective therapy can be challenging. There are many wonderful medical interventions and alternative and complementary options and it’s just finding what’s right for you and your body.
A wonderful Complementary Therapy that was developed in Germany over 40 years ago has, in recent years, been brought to the UK and its reputation is growing. The Dorn Method is gaining popularity due to its gentle and sensitive, yet effective, approach for correcting misalignments in the spine and targeting leg length discrepancies. It was founded by Dieter Dorn a German Practitioner and consists of a range of unique exercises and techniques developed to help joints and vertebrae slip into their natural positions without pain, clicking or crunching.
This form of manual therapy is considered extremely safe as there are no sudden thrust moves, no jerky manipulation and no heavy forces involved. All moves are carried out very gently and in full active cooperation and participation with the Dorn Method therapist. A high percentage of people suffering from back pain will show a leg length difference often due to poor leg seating in the hip joint. If your therapist detects a leg length discrepancy, safe corrections are made as necessary. Combined with this unique manual therapy is a 20min relaxing, spinal massage witch stretches, nourishes, aligns and energises the back. To prevent future problems and empower the client, simple leg length exercises and others are shown that can carry out a self-care routine in their own time and not solely rely on the therapist to improve problems. This helps to teach the client to take responsibility for their own health rather than the disempowering attitude society has become accustomed to of ‘let someone else fix me.
