The essence of chiropractic care lies in the body's natural ability to heal itself. When the brain and body are able to communicate clearly with one another, this natural healing ability is optimized. Chiropractic care identifies areas of the spine that are restricted and causing interference to the nervous system's communication. Specific adjustments to those areas restore movement and reduce nerve irritation which improves body function.
Sacro-Occipital Technique (SOT) is a specific form of chiropractic that not only identifies restrictions in the spinal column but also in the dura that covers the brain, spinal cord and each nerve as it exits the spine. SOT also helps to restore and balance the muscles of the body.
SOT is a comprehensive and adaptable system of evaluation and treatment. Adjustments are tailored to each person and vary from light pressure over specific points to a more traditional adjustment. It is also a natural complement to craniosacral therapy which addresses the dura in a different way.
