SOT Technique (Sacro Occipital Technique)
The main corrective mechanisms employed in the correction of these subluxation patterns are pelvic blocks and hands-on adjusting techniques. The specificity and flexibility of SOT allows the chiropractor to choose either low force or standard HVLA adjusting techniques based on the needs and condition of the patient. SOT acknowledges the various forms and implications of nervous system dysfunction, including: structural, dural/meningeal,viscerosomatic , and tonal subluxations by addressing each of these specifically in its adjusting protocols and procedures.
Aside from its category analysis and treatment, SOT has various techniques novel to its care and is not an exclusionary chiropractic technique. Rather it offers guidelines and direction to those practicing its various methods through a system of diagnostic indicators and pre and post evaluation tests. These indicators could also be considered outcome assessment tools helping to determine positional or directional preferences and the effectiveness of the care rendered. This expansive mode of care includes methods can be used to:
- Adjust vertebral segments
- Affect the musculoskeletal system through wedges or blocks
- Affect viscerosomatic reflexes and the viscera
- Adjust the extremities
- Affect the myofascial system of the body
- Affect cranial bone dynamics
- Affect craniospinal meningeal balance
- Affect treatment of the pregnant woman, neonatal and pediatric patient
