Chiropractors are concerned with the treatment and prevention of mechanical disorders of the musculoskeletal system, and the effects of these disorders on the nervous system and general health.
A first visit is usually 45 minutes to an hour and the chiropractor will take a full case history. With your permission you may be given an examination or if needed, x-rays will be taken. They will check for any serious conditions requiring hospital treatment.
Sacro-Occipital Technique (S.O.T.) is an advanced chiropractic method pioneered and developed by Dr. M.B. DeJamette. S.O.T. is based on the relationship between the sacrum (base of the spine) and the occiput (base of the skull).
