Default Scoliosis and the Dorn Method

Hi all,
I was browsing the web for a Naturopath in my area, when i came across a Practitioner who practises the Dorn Method. If you type in the above title, you will go to their website. It makes for interesting reading. It also has a before and after photo of a patient. I personally was impressed. Any thoughts?

P.S. Anyone heard of this treatment before?

Default Re: Scoliosis and the Dorn Method

I try to keep an open mind about these things. But I think if we're talking about "reversing" scoliosis, it would depend on what type of scoliosis a person has. If it's congenital or AIS, I can't see it being reversible. From everything I've read, the spine just seems hell-bent (scuse the pun!) on curving and only steel or titanium and a lot of screws can prevent that. But there are other types of scoliosis and it's believed that kids carrying their bags on one shoulder might be one cause. In these instances, I feel it's possible that it might be reversible with the right method.

Bring on the day though, that they find a non-invasive treatment!
