Dorn Therapy Method FAQs:
Is Dorn Therapy Safe?
The Dorn Therapy Method is considered very safe. No force or manipulation is applied to the person. The treatment is done with the person and not on the person, and is never done beyond the person’s pain threshold.
What Causes the Degree of Leg-length Difference?
The most common cause of subluxation of the hip joint, the leading cause to a difference in leg length, is sitting with crossed legs, incorrect sitting positions, vibration from endless driving, birth, sports injuries, and accidents.
Often the femur bone eases out of its natural position in the hip socket as the muscles surrounding the hip joint relax when sitting and don't support the joint as they do when we are standing.
Is the Treatment Done On a Machine?
The true Dorn Method is applied as Manual Therapy, a hands-on approach without tools or machines.
Am I Required to Take Any Additional Medicine?
No. Conventional medicine at times offers over-complicated explanations and solutions for such problems, and may unnecessarily lead to an operation, large doses of prescription medications, or the requirements to use special shoes or insoles.
How Many Treatments Are Needed?
A minimum two-to-three treatment after the initial consultation is recommended for those with general aches and pains. However, our practitioners determine and number of treatments needed on a case-by-case basis.
When is the Dorn Method not appropriate?
The Dorn Method is not suitable for people with the following conditions:
• Immediately after an accident – Doctor should first be consulted
• Any type of paralysis
• Immediate post surgery of disks
• Acute prolapsed discs
• Acute inflammation or fever
• Acute migraine attacks
• Ongoing cortisone medication due to possible brittle bones
How is Dorn different from Chiropractic treatment?
A static correction, such as that used in chiropractic therapy is difficult because it needs to overcome the strength of the holding muscles, and because the client is often tense since the treatment is done “on” him and not “with” him.
The Dorn method uses dynamic motion, movement, which first, alerts the brain that activity is happening in the body. Using motion diverts the muscles’ attention, and in this relaxed state it is now possible to easily realign the bones.
Critics of the Dorn Method
The Dorn Method is widely accepted amongst the Holistic and Naturopathy Communities. More and more medical personnel are incorporating the Dorn Method into their daily practices, it is not yet accepted by mainstream medicine due to the lack of independent scientific research. Many Dorn Method Practitioners who are also health practitioners propose some regulatory guideline to be established that at the same time allow the Dorn Method to stay free.
