Dorn therapy, also known as dorn spinal therapy, is a form of therapy that is believed to be effective in correcting misalignments in the spinal column and other joints. It is also used in addressing problems involving the back, joints, and other organs which have been caused by the vertebrae being in the wrong place or legs that are of different lengths.
Dorn Therapy is considered a non-manipulative treatment. The self-determined movements of the patients are effective in getting the vertebrae and joints slip back into their natural positions. Classified as a low-repetitive therapy, it involves the use of gentle re-alignment techniques to work on balancing the length of the legs, the spine, and all of the joints in the body. It can be used as an adjunct with other therapies or be used on its own.
Dorn therapy is said to be a safe, simple, effective, and rapid therapy. This therapy works by helping the patient by teaching them perform simple exercises that can be performed at home to continue and reinforce the treatment that is performed in a session with a qualified practitioner. Generally, this will mean that fewer sessions will be required for the therapy.
During the session, the length of the legs are initially checked. Next, the practitioner will check the location of each vertebra. After getting checked, the practitioner will emphasize on correcting the partial displacement of the hips due to the easiness for the hips to slip out of their correct positions. When the hip is not properly aligned, there will be an uneven length of the legs which causes the pelvis to be disrupted which can lead to problems in the spinal column. Then, the therapist will use gentle finger pressure while swinging arms or legs to treat the spine.
