Sacro Occipital Technique (SOT)®/Craniopathy
The Sacro Occipital Technique (SOT)® technique uses pelvic blocking in combination of both low -force and the HVLA style of adjusting.
It is a full, systematic approach that looks at the whole body. The analysis used with SOT includes the spine, the muscles, the cranium (skull), and the organs to balance the whole body. A structural example of this is direct relationship between the innominate (hip) bone and the temporal bone. This is why some people with low back pain may also have a TMJ problem and visa versa.
SOT also looks at the chronic pains that someone may be having as a possible functional organ problem. An example of this visceral somatic (organ muscle) relationship is low back pain associated with menstrual cycles. When a woman is properly aligned and the organs are properly supported, then she will not get the annoying PMS symptoms associated with her cycle. SOT doctors are trained to look at all these different relationships.
