SOTAll our Doctor of Chiropractic are qualified SOT practitioners. This technique was established by the famous American Chiropractor Dr Major DeJarnette DO DC. DeJarnette was also the main researcher and developer of Cranial Chiropractic. SOT is predicated on the relationship between the pelvis and the cranium and that by re-establishing the functionality between the two, the spine is restored towards overall health. Characteristic of SOT are the wedged shaped blocks which the chiropractor inserts under the pelvic bones. By improving the function of the spine, chiropractors hypothesise that they help to restore neurological relationship between the brain, the spine and the body. With improved spinal function the overall health of the body is anticipated to improve. SOT is very gentle and insides protocols for the viscera and the extremities making it a total body health solution.
