SOT / Craniosacral Chiropractor
Sacro Occipital Technique (SOT) is a gentle, holistic, chiropractic technique that can be enjoyed by the whole family, and is the main adjusting technique utilised at Little Mountain Chiropractic. SOT is an effective method of caring for body pain and dysfunction within the musculoskeletal system. Sometimes referred to as Cranio Sacral Therapy, SOT is widely used within the Chiropractic profession.
SOT looks for patterns of relationship and dysfunction in the spine and body, rather than in a single area, and allows for comprehensive assessment and correction of the pelvis, spine, cranium and organ systems. The technique is so named for the important relationship between the base of the spine, the sacrum, and the base of the skull, the occiput.
SOT chiropractors understand the mechanics and neurology of the body in an organised and practical way. SOT integrates easily and seamlessly with other chiropractic systems, so practitioners can use several different techniques and approaches simultaneously to gather large amounts of information and then correct the underlying problem using effective, gentle and specific methods.
At Little Mountain Chiropractic pelvic blocks are used to balance the pelvis and restore normal function to the musculoskeletal system. We also incorporate Activator technique, Diversified Manual Adjusting and Cranial Specific Adjusting with SOT to allow our practitioners to cater for each individual, and every stage of life.
All registered chiropractors in Australia complete mandatory continuing education each year in order to maintain registration and practice as allied healthcare professionals. The standards are set to ensure the best level of Chiropractic care is provided across the profession.
That said, every Chiropractor is different and it can sometime be a case of finding the Doctor who you like best. At Little Mountain Chiropractic, we understand this and that’s why all of our Chiropractors are trained and experienced in a variety of techniques so they can tailor your care based on your needs and preferences. We strive to provide the best chiropractic care for you and your family on the Sunshine Coast.
