Research and Clinical Trials with the Dorn Method

There is very few serious Research done on The Dorn Method so far, however the fast spread of the Dorn Method thanks to its efficiency on many health conditions will surely be noticed more widely soon and hopefully trigger the wish to do more clinical studies.

In an earlier post in www.curezone.com, Dorn Method Forum, (http://curezone.com/forums/f.asp?f=644), I wrote already about one of these clinical research projects that I re-post below followed by some articles in Medical journals to demonstrate the increased interest and acceptance of the Dorn Method.

The Effects of the Dorn Therapy seen on a Computer assisted EEG!

How important our Spine actually is can be seen at misaligned vertebrae causing not only Back Pain or Sciatica but also Migraines, Tooth aches and Tinnitus and other inner conditions like allergies, Immune deficiency or Cardio-Vascular problems.

With the Help of the computer assisted EEG could be proved that the Dorn Therapy indicated significant changes in the brain waves.

The division of the EEG in the classical frequencies 2-4hz (delta waves), 4-7hz (theta waves), 8-13hz (alpha waves =  relaxation waves), 14-21hz (beta waves) is one of the possibilities to visualize the Information within the brain using the electrical activity.

For example at a Tinnitus patient a significant change in the wave picture in the alpha level (p>=0.05) was found after a successful Dorn Therapy, the so-called alpha peak was higher.

This change in the alpha level produced a decrease in the Tinnitus Intensity.

This was done on ten different Tinnitus patients and all indicated that they can relax more easily after the Therapy and the Ear sounds appear less disturbing.

Dorntherapy: its effect on electroencephalographic activity in tinnitus patients with craniocervical dysfunction.

Dorntherapy was developed in the 1980s by Dieter Dorn, a nonmedical person, to cure his and his family members vertebral problems. This technique achieves correction of dysfunctions of the vertebrae and joints simply by using natural movements of arms and legs or by applying gentle pressure (thumb) to the spinous process. Various observations suggest that craniocervical dysfunction can lead to tinnitus, thus causing changes in the electroencephalographic patterns. This study demonstrates that the successful application of Dorntherapy induced prominent changes of the electroencephalographic activity. Data analysis revealed a significant increase in the power of the alpha (8-13 Hz) and the alpha2 (9-11 Hz). Besides electrophysiological effects, changes in the quality of tinnitus and in the intensity of the tinnitus were noted. These results suggest that Dorntherapy must be an integral part of any tinnitus therapy.

Dorntherapy: its effect on electroencephalographic activity in tinnitus patients with craniocervical dysfunction

International Tinnitus Journal 2003: 9 (No 2): 138-142

Brill K et al

Dorntherapy was developed in the 1980s. It aims to correct dysfunctions of the vertebrae and

joints by using natural movements of the arms and legs and by applying gentle pressure with

the thumb to the spinous process.

According to the authors, various observations suggest that craniocervical dysfunction can

lead to tinnitus, causing changes in electroencephalographic (EEG patterns. This study set out to

demonstrate that dorntherapy induced noticeable changes in EEG activity.

It reported changes in the quality andintensity of tinnitus in 10 patients with craniocervical dysfunction.

An EEG was taken before and after dorntherapy. All patients complained of tinnitus, headaches,

nausea, concentration problems and restricted head and neck movements.

The authors suggest their findings demonstrate the need to correct vertebral dysfunctions before starting any other therapies.

Real Case Study:

Herniated Disc scheduled for Surgery successfully treated with the Dorn Method

Cagla, 35 year old Turkish woman states:

I got paralised at 2nd of Feb 2006 and up to 1st of May I was not able to walk. 
Within these 3 months approx. last 6 weeks continuosly I stayed in the bed. Then all the doctors we have visited agreed on operation. 
They were going to fix a screw to L4-L5. At the hernia operation date (1st of May) the doctors discovered my heart problem.  First of course I did not believe in them, that is why I have searched for other doctors, hospitals, solutions etc. So 10th of May I got the heart (Atrial Septal Defect) operation.
Almost a month I was in bed at home, so my backpain was already easen at that time. 
Once Jose Garbe Vilijn (Dorn Practitioner in Dubai UAE) fixed my leg lenght on 21st of June (almost 1,5 month after my heart surgery) and kept massaging on 22nd and 23rd, it was like a miracle that I started walking without giving stops for every half an hour. 
Starting by 21st of June 2006 I started being very careful with my movements ie sleeping/walking/cleaning/cooking etc. I was perfect with my body posture. 
So in fact after the first treatment of Dorn, immediately my pain was decreased. I was already pain free according to my pain understanding. 
Once Thomas Zudrell did another treatment on my twisted hip on 29. Nov. 2007, the last bit of pain has gone. 
At my MRI dated May 1st, 2006 and Jan 11th, 2008 the improvement is so clear.
