OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this pilot study was to test methods needed to conduct a study with adequate power to investigate consistency between the arm-fossa test (AFT) and the Gillet test. METHODS: A convenience sample of chiropractic college students enrolled in a weekend Sacro-Occipital Technique seminar participated. Each was tested with AFT and sacroiliac orthopedic tests, including the Gillet test. Statistical testing included calculation of κ for consistency of the AFT and Gillet test and their diagnostic efficiency...

INTRODUCTION: The concept of a systematic or predictive relationship between distant vertebral levels distinct from accumulative functional compensatory mechanisms, such as in scoliosis, has been perpetuated within chiropractic technique systems based on clinical observation and experience. This study seeks to investigate this relationship between the cervical and lumbar vertebrae. METHODS: Patients (experimental group n=26 and control group n=12) were selected from the patient base of one office, and were limited to patients that had sensitivity at specific cervical reflex points...

The purpose of this series of case studies was to determine if the frontal plane position of the cranial bones and atlas could be altered using dental orthotics, prescriptive insoles, or both concurrently. The cranial radiographs of four patients were reviewed for the study. Three of the patients were diagnosed as having a temporomandibular joint (TMJ) dysfunction and a preclinical clubfoot deformity. The fourth patient was diagnosed as having a TMJ dysfunction, a preclinical clubfoot deformity and a Catetgory II sacral occipital subluxation, as designated in the chiropractic's Sacro Occipital Technique (SOT)...

OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this article is to present the case of a patient with an anatomical anomaly of the piriformis muscle who had a piriformis syndrome and was managed with chiropractic care. CASE REPORT: A 32-year-old male patient presented to a chiropractic clinic with a chief complaint of low back pain that radiated into his right buttock, right posterior thigh, and right posterior calf. The complaint began 5 years prior as a result of injuries during Airborne School in the US Army resulting in a 60% disability rating from the Veterans Administration...

The intent of this article is to provide a format for chiropractors to learn a Sacro-Occipital Technique (SOT) adjusting procedure (known as Disc Technique) for treating patients with lumbar discogenic syndromes. Disc Technique along with the 'Step Out Toe Out' procedure (SOTO) are central to the SOT Category III protocol. Other SOT Category III procedures will be discussed so that Disc Technique can be understood in its context. Disc Technique requires only a stool or an armless chair, a willing patient and your thumb...

INTRODUCTION: Dural port therapy (DPT) is a chiropractic procedure which can be used effectively with Sacro-Occipital Technique (SOT) procedures and which uses the sacrum as a lever to influence and balance the spine and cranium by way of the meningeal system. DISCUSSION: Rationale and research is presented to explain the basis behind DPT's method of affecting the craniospinal system and its relationship to the meninges. Though the procedure can be used with most conditions, DPT appears to be safe to use with osteoporotic conditions, fractured vertebrae, and other conditions where a "thrust" to the spine may be contraindicated...

Asthma is a multifactorial dysfunction of the respiratory system. Nutritional, environmental, genetic, and emotional factors all play animportant part in the etiology of this condition. One form of chiropractic, Sacro Occipital Technique (SOT), offers some conservative alternatives to the treatment of asthma. SOT expands the chiropractic armamentarium of techniques available, allowing methods putatively affecting the viscera, vertebra, post and preganglionic reflexes, as well as cranial and sacral influences on the primary respiratory mechanism...

INTRODUCTION: This study explores the extent to which consumers seek wellness care when choosing chiropractors whose practice methods are known to include periodic evaluative and interventional methods to maintain wellness and prevent illness. METHODS: Using an international convenience sample of Sacro-Occipital Technique (SOT) practitioners, 1316 consecutive patients attending 27 different chiropractic clinics in the USA, Europe and Australia completed a one-page survey on intake to assess reason for seeking care...

INTRODUCTION: Biophoton emission (BPE) is a quantum event characterized by a relatively stable but ultralow- rate emission of visible photons from living organisms. It has been associated with high energy processes such as: cell metabolism, growth, phagocytosis, neural activity, and oxidative stress. BPE has also been suggested to reflect the organism's global state of health as well as the response to stimulation including therapeutic interventions. If BPE changes occur as a result of various complementary and alternative medical interventions, this could prove useful to monitor both the patient's response to a specific treatment and global changes in their health status...

OBJECTIVE: To describe changes in lumbar and cervical range of motion measurements after supine pelvic blocking as used in Sacro Occipital Technique (SOT). METHODS: Five subjects with sacroiliac distortion and instability were recruited and selected for SOT. Cervical and lumbar ranges of motion were measured before and after category II blocking procedures used to change pelvic mechanics. Pre- and post-measurements were taken by a blinded assessor using a Zebris ultrasonic motion detector...

OBJECTIVE: To describe the use of Pilates therapy and sacro-occipital technique in the management of a 39-year-old woman with scoliosis who had undergone spinal fusion many years earlier. CLINICAL FEATURES: The patient had progressive severe low back pain that had worsened over the years after her surgery and had prevented her from activities such as carrying her son or equipment necessary for her job as a photographer. INTERVENTION AND OUTCOME: The patient was provided a series of Pilates exercises used to overcome her chronic habituation and muscle weakness...

OBJECTIVE: To demonstrate the concept of integrated dental orthopedic and cranio-chiropractic care for treating structural disorders of the jaw, neck and spine. CLINICAL FEATURES: A 33-yr-old woman sought chiropractic care for centralized lumbosacral pain that had persisted for 3 months. She exhibited pain on lumbopelvic extension and marked limitations on lumbopelvic flexion. In addition, cervical rotation and cranial sutural motion in the right malar maxillary suture were restricted...

OBJECTIVE: To present a case demonstrating the concept of integrated dental-orthopedic and craniochiropractic care for treating structural disorders of the jaw, neck and spine. CLINICAL FEATURES: A 33-yr-old woman sought orthodontic therapy for an overbite and severe crowding of the lower teeth. She reported a history of bilateral headaches and jaw popping. Orthodontic examination revealed degenerative changes in the right temporomandibular joint and restricted jaw opening...

A case of the external derangement-type temporomandibular disorder (TMD), temporarily relieved following chiropractic sacro-occipital technique (SOT) treatment, including SOT category II blocking to reduce sacroiliac sprain, is presented. Symptom exacerbation midway through the course of treatment followed additional dental work; symptom remission followed additional SOT treatment. Freedom from symptoms is maintained with a 3-wk treatment interval. There appears to be a cause-effect relationship between external derangement-type TMD and sacroiliac sprain...

Four interexaminer and one intraexaminer agreement studies were performed on specific diagnostic tests commonly employed within sacro-occipital technique (SOT). Ten of the tests were evaluated in more than one interexaminer study. Of these, only one test (bilateral supine leg raise with cervical compaction) had at least fair reliability more than once. Six of these 10 tests obtained poor agreement in more than one study. One examiner out of two had a number of excellent and fair intraexaminer values, whereas the other examiner generally had poor results...
