The spine as a human soul axis. The spine is more than just a skeleton, it is the human energy center, his life force, his support, his movement and the soul axis of the human being. Hence, the spine has an enormous priority in human health.
Musculoskeletal Therapy is designed to treat the muscles and skeletal system using Spinal Manipulation, Soft Tissue techniques and Joint Mobilisation techniques. Musculoskeletal Therapy combines a wide range of treatment techniques to not only assess and treat the following common conditions, but also find the root cause and any underlying factors that maybe contributing to the injury or pain.
Spinal Manipulation and Joint Mobilisation treatments are techniques applied to the spine or joints, to reduce tension, free the nerves, improve range of motion, restore blood flow and release 'natural painkillers' called Endorphins (Endorphins are endogenous opioid neuropeptides and peptide hormones). They are produced and stored in the pituitary gland. The principal function of endorphins release is to inhibit the communication of pain signals. Endorphins release also produces a feeling of euphoria very similar to that produced by other opioids.

Musculoskeletal Therapy is a therapy designed to treat the muscles and skeletal system using various soft tissue and mobilisation techniques. Musculoskeletal Therapy is used in the treatment and the rehabilitation of back pain, neck and shoulder pain, joint pain, leg pain, headaches and migraines, and muscular dysfunction and/or injuries. Musculoskeletal techniques incorporate a varied amount of hands on remedial and mobilisation techniques, as well as stretching and strengthening exercises. This assists in maintaining functional alignment of the skeletal system. The power the human body contains is what we term innate intelligence. Misalignments that occur in the spine and other places in the body cause interference to nervous system flow. This interference will disrupt the way the body, organs, muscles, and other parts of the body function.
Joint Mobilisation Therapy is a physical therapy technique designed to relieve pain and muscle spasms, release tension and improve flexibility in a joint. The main purpose is to align and correct vertebral subluxations along the spine, thereby improving the patient’s overall nervous system function leading to enhancement in overall well-being and better health.
Sacro-Occipital Technique (SOT) is a specialised, comprehensive, gentle Chiropractic technique, founded in 1925 by Dr Bertrand DeJarnette, who was both a qualified Chiropractor and an Osteopath. Sacro-Occipital Technique has been 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 envelopes and protects our central nervous system.
From an SOT perspective, the pelvis is the foundation for proper spinal alignment, and support of the human skeleton. Proper alignment and range of motion support nervous system integrity. It supports the upper body right up to the skull, and enables us to transfer our weight to our legs. The spine holds our body 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 when our structures are balanced and our pelvis is stable. This is what SOT aims to achieve.
SOT is an extremely gentle but very effective technique, known for safe consistent results emphasising patient comfort.
