Sacro Occiptal Technique
Originally developed by Dr M. B. DeJarnette in 1925, Sacro-Occiptal Technique (SOT) is a holistic approach to chiropractic healthcare which includes detailed analysis and corrections for the spine, pelvis, cranium (head) and visceral (organ) system. This enables practitioners to approach treatment and care from a long-term, ongoing, well-being perspective.
SOT is a technique that uses wedge shaped blocks to allow the body to find its correct alignment and balance. There are many combinations of block positions used, and these are determined by simple tests prior to each adjustment. From the patient’s perspective SOT is a particularly gentle but an effective treatment system.
SOT integrates easily and seamlessly with other chiropractic systems, allowing practitioners to use several different techniques simultaneously to gather information about body systems.
