Sacro Occipital Technique

sacrocciptalSacro Occipital Technique (SOT) refers to a specialized chiropractic adjustment technique that focuses on the relationship between the sacrum (base of the spine) and the occiput (base of the skull). By correcting any misalignments, the flow of cerebral fluid throughout the nervous system is optimized, thereby promoting the body’s natural healing abilities. SOT involves more “gentle” manipulations utilizing blocks under the pelvis and the body’s own weight to re-align the hip and spine. SOT can be performed in either a face-up or face-down position. Because of the gentle nature of SOT, it is optimal for pregnant women and those patients who are unable to tolerate the stronger manual manipulations.
