DORN SC-Joint Selfhelp Exercises
Special DORN Selfhelp Exercise
Frequency: Several times daily recommended, minimum once a day!
How to do this exercise correctly:
Give careful pressure directly onto the SC-Joint (sternoclavicular-joint) with the hand (ball of thumb) directed a little downwards and towards the shoulder. At the same time rotate the opposite shoulder (only shoulder!) upwards and backwards.
While lifting and turning backwards give pressure and exhale and on the way back to start position relax pressure and inhale.
Adjust force and movement in case it is too uncomfortable.
Repeat for approx. 30 seconds always on boths sides.
It is recommended to do this exercises often (several times a day) for a longer time period.
The improvement in this area requires a little patience and may take quite a while. Through the meridian = TCM (kidney meridian) connection this area is very important and recommended for patients with shoulder, neck or ear problems like tinitus.
If possible and there is not too much dicomfort or pain try to direct the force onto the SC-Joint more inwards and downwards by lifting the arm / elbow a little
The Basic 4 DORN selfhelp exercises:
Please note: Do not exercise after any injury following an accident and do not exercise if you experience fever, migraine or inflammations. The exercises must not cause any pain while doing them and it is best to repeat them more often than doing them too intensive. Do not hold your breath during the exercises. » All exercises must be done balanced on both sides of the body regardless where the problem is. Best results are achieved if all exercises are done several times a day for the first two month then at least once a day after that time. This however should be accompanied by the prevention (avoid wrong movements) and maintenance (muscular treatments like therapeutic massage and correct muscle training. The 3 tools for Self Healing: Prevention - Therapy (selfhelp) – Maintenance. Although the DORN Method Selfhelp Exercises are very safe if done careful and in the correct way unforeseeable reactions during the adjustment period are possible. Full Self Responsibility rests on the Practitioner of the DORN Method Selfhelp Exercises.
