Back pain (also known "dorsalgia") is pain felt in the back that may originate from the muscles, nerves, bones, joints or other structures in the spine.
The pain may have a sudden onset or it can be a chronic pain, it can be felt constantly or intermittently, stay in one place or refer or radiate to other areas. It may be a dull ache, or a sharp or piercing or burning sensation. The pain may be felt in the neck (and might radiate into the arm and hand), in the upper back, or in the low back, (and might radiate into the leg or foot), and may include symptoms other than pain, such as weakness, numbness or tingling.
Back pain is one of humanity's most frequent complaints. In the U.S., acute low back pain (also called lumbago) is the fifth most common reason for all physician visits. About nine out of ten adults experience back pain at some point in their life, and five out of ten working adults have back pain every year.

The Power of Dorn Spinal Therapy

The Dorn spinal therapy is a gentle treatment of the spine and joints. It begins with the review of the leg length, as 80% of people have a difference in leg length, often without knowing it. Differences are easy exercises to the joints of the lower limbs back into their correct positions. Once the legs are balanced, the hip is the next area to check. It is for each phrase scoliotic or appearance. Once the people "base" is balanced,

of the spine is then examined.

"Displaced" vortices are back in by the pressure of the thumb next to the spinal vertebrae. In this process to take place is essential for the customer, their arm or leg in a swinging motion, depending on what area we are working. This movement relaxes the muscles so that the spine can back into position.

With this therapy tendons and ligaments are stretched or overwhelmed, they adapt, after a very short time and the muscles around the spine in the position. All

treatment is gentle and safe, no cracks or abrupt movements are used, only the thumb on a specific area. Many problems such as headaches, dizziness, ear and eye problems can result from nerve-end pressure in the cervical area of the spine. By using this gentle massage technique These problems can be reduced. Work on the neck area of the head is turned slightly, while the therapist finds the displaced vertebrae and massages back into position.

For sore joints or uneven, there are some simple exercises to reduce the pain and movement of the joints in their correct position.

The Breuss Massage is a gentle and sensitive treatment of the spine, the

is used in combination with the Dorn spinal therapy. By gently stretching the spine, the discs get unpacked, with St. John's word oil, which is used in massage, in the system. Breuss used the image of a sponge to explain the process. A sponge with a weight over 50 kg is very thin. But pouring water on the sponge when the weight is gone, in our case would be when we sleep, it grows back to its normal size. Similar happens with the discs. If they absorb the oil and they extend the distance between the vertebrae expanded so that more flexibility in the spine.

The spine is not only the central organ support "of the body, but more important is the protection for the bone marrow, the higher command organ" for all functions of the organs, tissues, including every cell in the body. Pain, dysfunction and tissue changes - not only in the back, but also in any other body region - are often caused by irritation of the spinal nerves. This means that, for example, poor digestion can be used in conjunction with a displaced vertebra in the appropriate field, and thus can be treated on the spine. Therefore, it is always worth that you have a spinal check-up on all complaints that are not cured or before the surgery. "Sometimes it would be advisable to have the second thoracic vertebra before the implantation of a pacemaker is a by Dieter Dorn? s humorous remarks.

thorn spinal therapists always the length of their customers first, and correct a difference with simple steps and simple exercises to make the corrections in place.

Work on the structural adjustment of the body always in motion, which means that the customer cooperation is crucial for the success of treatment.

Why is the compensation of leg length differences so important?

When we walk on 2 different long legs leg more and more impact on the hip, which will lead to a hip move front, rear or worse. This change creates a stable base for the spine, and the basis for a strong back is no more. As we all know, the body has amazing abilities to correct the imbalances, but it will be that one day, where they can no longer cope and the slightest wrong move can be a massive impact, pain. And people wonder why, since they can not remember something wrong.

bring the balance back in the leg often solve back pain and it is a good start to the entire structure.

Why is the movement during the treatment so important?

The structure of our body is very smart and highly developed to give us the opportunity to do whatever we do with our bodies. But the structure itself is also very flexible and that is when a thorn Spinal Therapist works. We try to solve all the imbalances by this flexibility, and by supporting the body with the movement. This means that for example, by correcting an imbalance in the hip we are working with the rhythm of movement, with one leg swinging like pendulum. Each swing back we move the hips and they are not too many swings for the "hip" for a realignment.

Even if we are all "different" vertebrae, we use the movement of clients to massage the vertebrae back into the correct position and it is easier for the vortex actually creates swing back as a little gap in the spine, which open the space for the vortex. But at the same time, because the customer is always moving the opposite leg or arm, where the therapist, the muscles are working as well and create a natural barrier, so the vortex can never move too far.

And the neck orientation is easy to exercise, how we use the rotational movement of the head to the relaxation of the spine and the realignment of the spine.

All in all, Dorn spinal therapy is a very simple technique, which, fortunately, shows good results and definitely the hope of those who believe they have tried everything and everyone in a gentle way of treating back problems.
