The spine as a human soul axis. The spine is the central supporting structural element. It forms the center of the body and envelops the spinal cord in the spinal canal and the vital nervous system. It is connected to the atlas (the uppermost head joint), to the skull and to the pelvis via the illiosacral joint. Hence, the spine has an enormous priority in human health.
Musculoskeletal Therapy is a therapy used to treat the muscles and skeletal system to treat using spinal manipulation, soft tissue techniques, and joint mobilisation techniques.
It relieves tension, frees the nerves, improves freedom of movement, restores blood flow, and is a "natural pain reliever" that releases so-called endorphins (endorphins are endogenous opioid neuropeptides and peptide hormones). They are produced and stored in the pituitary gland. The main function of endorphin release is to inhibit the communication of pain signals.
Musculoskeletal Therapy and Joint Mobilisation Therapy combine a wide range of treatment techniques to find the root cause and any underlying factors that may be contributing to injury or pain, and are used to treat and rehabilitate:
The Sacro Occipital Technique (SOT) is a specialised, comprehensive, gentle chiropractic technique developed and founded in 1925 by Dr. Bertrand DeJarnette, who was both a qualified chiropractor and an osteopath. The Sacro Occipital Technique was developed to restore a functional relationship between the sacro (sacrum, the base of the spine) and the occipital (occiput, the base of the skull) - a structure that envelops and protects our central nervous system.
The Sacro Occipital Technique (SOT) does not use force grips, but gives impulses in the right place, and the therapy mobilises the self-healing powers of the organism.
From an SOT perspective, the pelvis is the basis for correct spinal alignment and support for the human skeleton. Proper alignment and freedom of movement support the integrity of the nervous system. It supports the upper body up to the skull and allows us to transfer our weight to our legs. The spine keeps our bodies upright, supports all of our organs and provides anchor points for our muscles. It also protects our delicate nervous system. The nervous system controls our body and can only function normally if our structures are balanced and our pelvis is stable. That is the aim of SOT.
To determine the severity of the spine displacement, some painless tests are done first. Afterwards, impulses are set through gentle and targeted manual movements, conscious breathing by the patient and with the help of correctly inserted 'wedges' (which are often perceived as pleasantly liberating). The entire body with its nervous system is holistically adjusted, especially the skull and brain, the meninges, spine and the pelvis with the central sacrum (sacrum), the function of which is so immensely important for our health. The pain relief and the noticeable gain in strength and energy can often be felt immediately after the adjustment. Patients report a pleasant feeling of lightness, they feel straight and in stable balance again.
SOT is an extremely gentle but very effective technique known for safe, consistent results that emphasise patient comfort.
