Here at Cottesloe Chiropractic we employ the gentle technique of SOT (Sacro Occipital Technic) which is firmly based on the Principles of Chiropractic.

The Principles of Chiropractic are:

  • The body is a self healing and self-regulating organism
  • The nervous system controls and coordinates all of the functions in the body
  • Any interference with the nervous system inhibits the body’s ability to regulate and heal itself
  • Interference to the nervous system is most commonly caused by misalignment of the bones of the spine/cranium
  • Misalignments or the human structure are most often caused by slips and falls, mental & emotional stress, poor posture, car accidents, sport impacts, and the birth process
  • Maintaining a healthy and well aligned spine enhances the body’s ability to get and stay well


Sacro Occipital Technic (SOT) is a comprehensive, gentle and innovative technique of chiropractic. It is so named because of the relationship between the Sacrum (base of the spine) and the Occiput (base of the skull). SOT chiropractors understand the mechanics and neurology of the body in an organised and practical way. SOT integrates easily and seamlessly with other chiropractic systems, so practitioners use several different techniques and approaches simultaneously to gather large amounts of information and then correct the underlying problem using highly effective, specific methods.

How is SOT different than ordinary chiropractic?

SOT practitioners utilise 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, SOT doctors address soft tissue, extremities, viscera and the cranium in their analyses and correction of the various misalignment patterns. When considering all those areas mentioned, SOT becomes one of the most unique and comprehensive approaches to chiropractic today.

Visceral procedures are used to help normalise organ function without the use of drugs or surgery. SOT also recognises the important role of normal cranial function in health and disease. The cranial bones and other cranial structures can cause central nervous system problems that are often overlooked or ignored by most other chiropractic systems.

Misalignments of the spine can cause a disorder of the spinal, pelvic or cranial bones which is interfering with, or prohibits the correction of, the secretion, fluctuation and absorption of cerebrospinal fluid.
