Special DORN Selfhelp Exercise
Frequency: Several times daily recommended, minimum once a day!
How to do this exercise:
Place the back of the hand downwards and grab the first metacarpal bone (= first bone attached to the thumbbase joint) with the fingers of the other hand and bend (rotate) the thumb inwards to the startposition. Apply careful pressure directed towards the thumbbase-joint (thumb saddle joint) and move (rotate) the thumb outwards to the normal position (open hand) while one exhales.
Move back to the startposition and inhale again. Repeat this several times and gradually increase the pressure but adjust (pressure force, movement) in case it is too uncomfortable or painful.
Do the same with the other thumbbase (thumb saddle) joint.

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.
