Sacral Occipital Technique (SOT®)

woman getting low back adjustmentThe Sacro Occipital Technique (SOT) is a gentle chiropractic method that focuses on the relationship between the sacrum (base of the spine) and the occiput (base of the skull). This technique emphasises their role in facilitating the movement of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) to the brain and throughout the nervous system, which is crucial for optimal health and wellbeing.

The Importance of Balancing Body Structures

SOT focuses on recognising the significance of normal cranial function in maintaining health. This technique employs a three-category system to evaluate, diagnose and deal with dysfunction within the body by addressing cranial issues during the adjustment process. The goal is to restore balance to body structures, especially by stabilising the pelvis to support optimal nervous system function.

Who Can Benefit From This Method?

SOT has been successful in reducing or eliminating pain and disorders in various areas, including

  • TMJ
  • Head
  • Neck
  • Back
  • Pelvis
  • Extremities (foot, ankle, knee, hip, hand, wrist, elbow and shoulder)

While pain relief is a significant benefit, the primary goal of a SOT adjustment is to normalise overall body function. Our approach at Barham Chiropractic aims to improve the function of the entire body system, enhancing overall health and wellbeing. With clinical success demonstrated in thousands of offices worldwide, this technique has proven to be a clinically valuable method in chiropractic care.

Providing Comfortable and Non-Invasive Care

SOT adjustments are designed to be comfortable and non-invasive. By precisely positioning the body and utilising gravity, the technique corrects imbalances. While there may be slight discomfort during specific points of correction, many patients describe it as a relieving sensation, often referred to as a “good pain.”
