Sacro-Occipital Technique / Craniopathy
Dr. Bloink is a board certified Craniopath and advanced instructor of S.O.T. (Sacro Occipital Technic)
S.O.T. is a highly analytical chiropractic technique which was developed by Dr. M.B. DeJarnette. It was one of the earliest techniques (dating back to 1925) and remains one of the most progressive, contemporary, and thoroughly researched techniques available to chiropractors today. In S.O.T., the doctor understands three main subluxation patterns alter normal body function.
Each subluxation pattern is called a category. Each category has its own analysis and adjusting procedures. Category I addresses subluxation patterns which involves the central nervous system directly. Category II comprises a primary subluxation of the posterior Sacroiliac joint, and the musculoskeletal compensations which result from pelvic instability. Category III consists of a primary lumbar instability or vertebral subluxation, and its resulting complications.
S.O.T. practitioners utilize full spine adjusting techniques as well as pelvic wedges to balance the pelvis and facilitate the flow of cerebrospinal fluid throughout the central nervous system. This allows the body to efficiently adapt to both environmental and gravitational stress.
In addition, S.O.T. doctors address soft tissue, extremities, viscera, and the cranium in their analyses and correction of the various subluxation patterns. When considering all those areas mentioned, S.O.T. becomes one of the most unique and comprehensive approaches to chiropractic today.
Craniopathy is a specialized Chiropractic field dealing with the micro motion and distortions of the skull. This technique improves the flow of Cerebro-Spinal Fluid (C.S.F.) which is dependent on a stable, balanced cranium, spine and pelvis. Correcting cranial distortions reducing cranial stress that improving C.S.F. flow restoring normal functioning to the brain and nervous system.
Cranial adjusting has been proven to help the following conditions: migraines, headaches, vision problems, TMJ dysfunction, coordination, speech problems, hearing, vertigo, tinnitis, sinus problems, emotional disturbance, hormone imbalances, sleep disturbance, insomnia, loss of memory, loss of energy and many others.
