Sacro-Occiptal Technique (SOT) is an holistic approach to chiropractic healthcare. It includes analysis and corrections for the spine, pelvis, cranium and extremities so as to provide a care programme based on long-term well-being.
SOT also integrates easily with other chiropractic systems. This allows me to use several different techniques and approaches simultaneously to gather large amounts of information about underlying cranial, spinal and organ related problems. These are then corrected using highly effective specific chiropractic corrections.
SOT was developed in the USA by Dr Bertrand DeJarnette in 1925. Originally an engineer, DeJarnette suffered serious injuries following an explosion which eventually led him to spinal manipulative treatment. He credited the treatment with saving his life. He was so impressed he went on to train as both an osteopath and a chiropractor in order to help others.
Once he had qualified as a chiropractor, DeJarnette felt that traditional chiropractic adjustments did not provide the full answer to better health. As a result, he spent the next few decades researching to develop a unique approach to chiropractic treatment. This approach he named "SOT" and was based on balancing the relationship between the sacrum and the occiput.
The technique includes a method of using a specific indicators for analysing, and subsequently treating, pelvic, spinal, cranial and extremity disorders.
