Sacro Occipital Technique in Chelsea

For her chiropractic evaluations and therapies, Dr. Nanette uses a highly specific, effective and gentle technique called Sacro Occipital Technique (SOT). This approach is similar to other methods in that its purpose is to restore normal nerve function, which results in optimal wellness.

SOT is a unique system because it not only addresses nerve flow but also the flow of cerebrospinal fluid, which is vital for optimum health. CSF or cerebrospinal fluid should be free-flowing from the sacrum or triangular bone at the base of your spine to the cranium or top of your head. When the CSF is not flowing properly, it can lead to diffuse pain in the back, headaches, fever, high blood pressure, seizures, etc.

What to Expect

SOT protocol begins with a spinal evaluation, clearing and balancing with the use of blocks that are placed under your pelvis, and then moves into a cranial evaluation and clearing which results in the most optimal functioning of your nervous system. SOT is a valuable tool which allows Dr. Nanette to identify the specific areas of the spine that need to be addressed. This, in turn, results in the most effective session possible.

Your initial visit will include a comprehensive consultation and examination. Your second visit consists of a thorough report of your particular findings and your first therapeutic session. Therapeutic visits begin with the appropriate use of specific modalities. These include

  • Moist heat
  • Electric muscle stimulation
  • Pulsed ultrasound
  • PEMF (Pulsed electromagnetic frequency)
  • G5 massage
  • Cold laser

These therapies are followed by spinal adjustments, pelvic blocking and cranial adjustments. All therapies are completed with relaxing cranial pulse balancing, which may incorporate essential oils.

“In my clinical experience, the SOT protocol yields the most specific adjustments and the most effective treatments. I am so grateful for my discovery of this technique because I am better able to more effectively and efficiently help my patients and promote more wellness,” says Dr. Nanette.
