Patients are often surprised to see wedge-shaped blocks in my office. Even patients who have been to other chiropractors will say "my other chiropractor never used those before."
The blocks are part of Sacro-Occipital Technic® (SOT®), which is the primary form of chiropractic I do. People love them because they are gentle. Often patients also say that adjustments work better or seem to "hold" better when I use the blocks.
Blocks are placed under your hip bones (pelvis) in various positions. Your body will naturally bring itself back into alignment while laying on the blocks. Patients who don't like the traditional popping and cracking associated with traditional chiropractic are especially fond of the blocks.
But other patients ask me how something so simple could do anything? It's a myth that a crunch must be heard for an adjustment to have occurred.
In fact, I have conducted and presented research at international conferences showing that laying on the blocks changes brain function. Yes, really! Click here for a portion of that study.
Bottom line, the blocks are awesome. Call my office at 727-509-3760 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule an appointment today to learn how the blocks can help you.
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.
