What is Chiropractic Manipulative Reflex Technique (CMRT)?
CMRT is a type of soft tissue work developed by a chiropractor and osteopath named Dr. M.B. DeJarnette. It involves manual stimulation to the organs of the body. A CMRT-trained doctor may also touch various reflex points on the body depending on which organ is affected. This is additional work beyond simply adjusting the spine.
What's the general idea behind CMRT?
Each spinal vertebra in the thoracic and lumbar spine corresponds with an organ or organ system. For example, thoracic vertebra 5 goes with the stomach. When thoracic 5 is subluxated (chiropractic term for a vertebra not functioning properly), the stomach function can be affected (a somato-visceral reflex). Similarly, if the stomach is irritated by something, it can send signals back into the spine causing the vertebra to become subluxated (a viscero-somatic reflex). This is part of why some people have to go back to chiropractors again and again to have the same vertebra adjusted. They haven't fixed the viscerosomatic reflex.
Who performs CMRT?
Only chiropractors with advanced training in Sacro-Occipital Technic® (SOT®) practice CMRT. It requires additional continuing education after a doctor graduates school and then practices using it on patients. I am the only doctor certified in SOT® Methods in Pinellas county and only 1 of 2 in the entire Tampa bay area.

I'm a Chiropractic Physician, Psychotherapist and researcher. I'm interested in helping people live their lives to their full potential. That could be simply without pain. Or it could be without more complicated physical or mental health problems. Or it could be getting help in making changes in their life so that they can achieve their dreams.
