Back Pain, Neck Pain, Headache? Give Dorn Spinal Therapy a Go!

Dorn Spinal Therapy was developed by a gentleman by the name of Dieter Dorn in Germany in the 1970’s. Mr. Dorn, a farmer, had no medical training and sought out treatment for relief of his long term back pain. He had the fortune to meet a healer who performed a gentle procedure on him that eased his pain by helping vertebrae and joints sliding back into proper alignment. He then decided to learn the technique himself, help friends and family suffering from bad backs, and eventually teach it to others. Only slowly but steadily this new treatment approach is taking on its journey outside of the European border into Australia, the United States and Asia. Unless you keep up on all of the latest alternative treatement news, this is probably the first time you are hearing about it.

As most of the literature on Dorn Spinal Therapy is in various European languages, it has taken a while to get the information translated and distributed to English speaking countries. The Internet gets most of the credit for the increasing awareness of this exciting procedure now. This treatment can offer relief to anyone suffering the effects of a dysfunctional alignment in their spine. Studies have shown that these dysfunctions can cause restricted movement, pain, headaches, tinnititus and other ailments. If you suffer from back or neck pain, you know what it means to have restricted movement and just what a negative effect it can have on your quality of life. Chiropractic treatments are the most popular form of treatment for back pain in the USA, Australia and UK, but it has its drawbacks as many back pain sufferers might have experienced. Within the medical establishment in the United States and most developed countries, alternative treatments for back problems do not get the respect they deserve and therefore those of us wanting natural treatments must seek them out or find a knowledgeable practitioner to guide us. There are hardly any chiropractors making us aware of a different treatment that they do not provide.

With chiropractic treatments vertebrae are forced into place, while the Dorn technique encourages alignment using the natural movements of the patient. For example, if you are suffering from lower back pain, the practitioner would instruct you to swing one of your legs and at the same time he or she would use light pressure to push the vertebrae into alignment. Having the patient use a muscle at the time pressure is applied makes this method extremely safe because when the muscle is engaged it will not allow the vertebrae to move too far. Will Dorn Spinal Therapy help you? There is only one way to find out.

Whether you are seeking relief from lower back pain, neck pain or even stress relief, Dorn Spinal Therapy is one treatment you should look into. This gentle, natural treatment leaves most patients pain free within only three treatments. And even if you have been told you need back surgery because there is nothing that can help you, you might want to think again and look for a Dorn practitioner to give this treatment a go before undergoing final surgery. You would not be the first one to be spared from surgery and live a happy, painfree life after discovering the power of this treatment.

Information on Spine Surgery (Neck & Back Surgery)

About Spinal Cord Surgery

The primary purpose of neck or back surgery (spine surgery) is to correct an anatomical lesion in individuals who fail to show enhancement with conservative, that is, non – surgical treatment. Surgery isn’t an option for those patients whose anatomical lesion accounting for their pain cannot be identified.

Surgery is useful only if there is a need to change the patients’ anatomy. For example, to remove disc herniation. There is no particular reason to consider an exploratory surgery to look for a source of pain. An unsuccessful conservative treatment is itself a sign for surgery. A noticeable anatomic lesion is also necessary.

Evolution in Spinal Cords Surgery

Present – day spinal surgery has made significant developments in both spinal implants and technique over the past couple of decades. But even until today the most remarkable progress in spine operation has been better pre – effective imaging techniques, which have been significantly improved the ability of the surgeons to spot accurately and correct an anatomic lesion as a source of pain.

MRI scan (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) has transformed back surgery. It is the most frequent and the best test to recognise an anatomical lesion responsible for the patient’s problem. The most vital factor in the resolution of the success in spine operation is proper pre – adequate diagnosis. Without an appropriate pre – correct diagnosis, even the most technically successful operations have little chance for a successful result.

Though this surgery is done by either neurosurgeons or orthopaedic surgeons, it is more and more becoming a field unto itself. Many surgeons are doing extra specialised training in the field after their residency training. Given the precision needed for these more demanding surgical techniques, many neurosurgeons or orthopaedic surgeons with fellowship training are choosing to concentrate more of their practice on spine surgery. Some trust that the increased level of specialised training and concentration on the spine have donated to enhancements in surgical techniques, which in turn have led to overall better success rates and minimised morbidity with many types of spine surgeries. For example, the reduced post – operative discomfort.

Objective of Spinal Cords Surgery

This surgery is an elective undertaking, which means that it is observed as a possible approach to increase a patient’s ability to function and reduce pain. Anyhow, just because spine surgery is elective doesn’t mean that insurance does not cover it. Elective surgery may be medically necessary. ‘Elective’ means that the surgery of spine is seldom an absolute necessity. Only in exceptional instances, like for patients who have a progressive neurological loss of function or sudden start of bladder or bowel incontinence, is spinal surgery actually mandatory on an emergency basis.

Operation of Spine can achieve three tasks:

1. Decompress the spinal cord or the nerve root.

2. Stabilise a painful or an unstable segment with spinal fusion surgery.

3. Reduce a distortion (for e.g. scoliosis surgery in the thoracic spine).

Spine surgery isn’t done for exploration. The source of a patient’s pain isn’t readily apparent with exploring and opening the spine. The preoperative evaluation and imaging results are what identifies the problem and guide the diagram of the procedure.
