Sacro-Occipital Technique (SOT), is achieved by analyzing the patient's spine in the positions; vertical, lying face down, and lying facing up. The Chiropractor then analyzes the nerve health and flow of cerebro-spinal fluid from the brain to the spine, and makes adjustments to improve this flow. During this process the chiropractor may examine the skull to make adjustments to the actual cranial bones, while simultaneously massaging or “pumping” various vertebrae to remove blockages that could interfere with cerebro-spinal fluid flow.
This technique is used to aid in the correction of abnormal spinal mechanics and any associated nerve problems. These can include back pain, headaches, dizziness, arm and leg pains. Through the use of Chiropractic Manipulative Reflex Techniques, your SOT practitioner can help normalize organ function in your body, including high blood pressure, digestive problems, urinary problems, toxicity, female reproductive dysfunction, etc.
