For the past 32 years as a chiropractor, I have practiced and taught Sacro Occipital Technique® nationally and (SOT®) internationally. It has always amazed me to hear the vast misconceptions about this incredible chiropractic technique developed by Major Bertrand DeJarnette, DC. The true beauty of SOT® Chiropractic lies in its indicator system and Category system.

Nutrition

We live in a time of fluctuation, seemingly limitless choices and varying stress levels. While in a perfect world we might be able to get all the nutrients we need from our food this in not the case for most. Eating on the run, fast food, depleted soil, GMO products, skipping meals, extreme stress levels, high activity levels and inconsistent eating habits all make it difficult to consistently make the best food choices.

Pediatric Spinal Evaluation and Adjusting Protocols

Pediatric Spinal Evaluation and Adjusting Protocols

Because of the necessity for different adjusting procedures to deal with the delicacy of the pediatric spine, we also address the different types of subluxations - especially meningeal - that are often primary in this segment of the population. Demonstrations of multiple adjusting protocols for the entire spine are shown and correlations to the examination findings are discussed.

Since brain growth, development, imprinting and susceptibility are greatest in the first two years of life, this skill set is paramount in achieving full nervous system function and allowing the child to truly express their full potential.

Removing Cranial Dural Stress Patterns through the Sutural System

Pediatric Adjusting DVDs

In this 3-DVD set Dr. Rosen discusses the anatomy of the cranial sutural system, its effect on the dural meningeal mechanics of the cranium, and the global effect this has on spinal and pelvic stability. You will learn cranial landmarks, evaluation protocols to determine cranial sutural integrity, and the corrective procedures for sutural subluxation patterns.

The original sutural correction protocol taught by Major DeJarnette was a seven step process. In this video all seven steps will be demonstrated and you will learn how to incorporate them into your practice. Changing the cranial sutural mechanics affects TMJ function, the dural meningeal system, and head posture and pelvic stability. Learning to make corrections to this system will enhance your ability to correct aberrant postural, meningeal, neurological, and structural imbalances in your patients.

A PDF workbook is included on a fourth disc.

What is Chiropractic

The purpose of chiropractic care is to restore and maintain the integrity of the relationship between the brain, the spinal cord, its nerve roots and all the cells, tissues, and organs under its control.

These nerve pathways are housed in and protected by the cranial and spinal bones (vertebra). Slight misalignments, distortions or imbalances of these protective structures can cause a disruption of the normal transmission of neurological impulses through these pathways, thus effecting the optimal functioning of the entire body.

How Can Chiropractic Help You?

Why is a Proper Nerve Supply so Important?

Without an unimpeded nerve pathway, between your brain and spinal cord, the control and coordination of all tissues, organs and systems in your body is compromised.

One of the most damaging neurophysiologic phenomenon that interferes with the optimal functioning of the nervous system and affects the overall health of human beings is a subluxation.
