In October of 2021, I received my Advanced Proficiency level of certification in Sacro Occipital Technique (also spelled Sacro Occipital Technic ® or SOT®). I already had a general certification in SOT®. This advanced certification documents a level of mastery in specific advanced parts of SOT®, including Chiropractic Manipulative Reflex Technique (CMRT) and chiropractic craniopathy.
CMRT deals with the function of the organs in the body. It includes visceral manipulation to treat dysfunction in the organs that are contributing to people's problems. Conditions I frequently treat with CMRT are respiratory problems (including viral illnesses), allergies, gallbladder issues, stomach and digestive problems, adrenal dysfunction, liver issues, kidney issues, constipation, diarrhea, heartburn, gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), menstrual problems, menopause symptoms, and prostate issues.
There are so many issues that can be helped with chiropractic craniopathy, since 80% of your nervous system is in your brain. Some of the more frequent ones I help in my office are headaches, traumatic brain injury, temporomandibular dysfunction (TMD; including dysfunction of the temporomandibular joint [TMJ]), trigeminal neuralgia, learning disabilities, tooth pain, dizziness, and vertigo. Babies' heads are often traumatized by the birth process, leading to problems like plagiocephaly, difficulty nursing or latching, and ear infections which can all be helped by chiropractic craniopathy. Chiropractic adjustments that do not hold can indicate an unresolved cranial bone issue. Since the brain controls the rest of your body, I've had cranial adjustments help things like neck pain, low back pain, sciatica, lymph drainage, and even ankle problems (really!).
I am the only chiropractor in Pinellas County Florida with Advanced Proficiency SOT® level certification. Interested in knowing if SOT® can help you? Please contact my office to schedule an appointment.
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.
