However when I discovered the Dorn Method two things happened , I found a safe, effective non-manipulative therapy for back pain and I discontinued my Chiropractic Studies . The Dorn method is a compensive system that treats patients on all levels

I had been having on-and-off back pains for several years until I came across the Dorn Method. I immediately noticed a significant improvement after just one session.
I am convinced that the Dorn Method is a safe and effective means of treating various muscular-skeletal disorders.

As an osteopath who already treated spinal misalignments, The Dorn Method had a huge impact on my practice, because it gave me the tools to address spinal misalignments in a gentle non-invasive way
