A Yes to Self Responsibility and a No to Back Pain

The Dorn Method – Spine Organ Connections


The information presented here is not a proven medical fact and is intended as information reference only.
Different annecdotal evidence collected from actual experience was used to develop this chart and it does not represent a medical anatomical chart.

Dieter Dorn experienced himself in the first years of applying DORN that the Back and Joint Pains of the people that came to him improved or disappeared often very fast but beside that many other ailments that these people had also improved at the same time.

By experience learning from his hands on work and learning more about human anatomy and physiology and the Meridian connection from TCM it became apparent that the re-balancing of certain spinal areas contributed to the improvement of other parts of the body and organs that were connected through the nerves branching from the spinal cord in these respective areas. A fact that was long known by other medical practitioners especially from the fields of Chiro- and Osteopathy.

Knowledge of these connections can help to understand the different results and reactions after a re-balancing of the structures and may be helpful in explaining DORN to Clients/Patients and motivating them to do the necessary Dorn selfhelp measures. Our sytem is a functional unit of hardware and software so to say and one should look at it in a more holistic way, something clearly missing in conventional medicine.

The Chart (see graphic below) is available as download (pdf) and makes a great reference poster and eye-catcher for the therapy sessions.

NOTE: Never try to use the DORN Method on other people without proper training best conducted by an authorized DORN Method Instructor. Although the DORN Method and the Self Help Exercises are very safe if done correctly, the DORN practitioner is not responsible for any consequences resulting from the application during the manual session and Selfhelp exercises. In any case it is advised to consult your doctor first because health problems and back pains may have other causes than misaligned joints and vertebrae and should be checked by a trained medical doctor or other healthcare professional. The DORN Method has certain Limitations that must be cleared prior to any practical application! Remember: The DORN Method is NO Replacement for any other form of medical or non-medical treatment but it can be a very effective complement in an integrative medical system.
