Introduction to chiropractic
The Sacro Occipital Technique (SOT) is used to correct the nervous system and the musculoskeletal system disorders by applying treatments to the spine,pelvis,organs,membranes,cranial bones and bite.
Chiropractic was founded in 1895 in Davenport, Iowa, the USA. The founder of chiropractic was Daniel David Palmer. His son, Bartlet Joshua Palmer, took over basic principles from his father and developed chiropractic into what is today the largest branch of non-conventional medicine in the world. Today there are Chiropractic Colleges established as independent schools in America, Canada, France, United Kingdom, Brazil, Chile, Japan, etc. Doctors of Chiropractic are trained to make corrections of the spine and other joints in order to treat musculoskeletal and nervous system disorders. . The official chiropractic studies last for five full years, and include an additional two years if the Doctor wishes to specialize in a specific technique. Chiropractic today includes about thirty techniques, distinguished by their approach to the specific patient’s issues, but they all share a common target: to achieve “homeostasis” in the human body. The definition of homeostasis by the Mellonis Medical Dictionary is as follows: “The condition of physiological equilibrium in a living organism (temperature, pressure, chemical equilibrium, etc.) under various environmental conditions.” In a nutshell, “Chiropractic is based on the understanding founded on the long-standing clinical and scientific observation of how musculoskeletal system disorders might have their bearing upon the nervous system.” Virgil V Strang.
