We have special programmes for babies and children and our chiropractors have undertaken extensive postgraduate training to ensure they receive the very best care.
Sacro Occipital Technique
Sacro Occipital Technique (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).
One of the functions of the sacrum is to pump Cerebro-Spinal Fluid (CSF) from the base of the spine back up the spinal canal to the brain and throughout the nervous system. CSF acts as the circulatory system of the brain and spinal cord. Sacro Occipital technique utilises an extensive checking system and then uses pelvic blocks to reposition and adjust the spine and pelvis into correct alignment for movement and Cerebro-Spinal Fluid flow.
SOT can also provide profound change and improvement for people suffering from disc issues as well as any type of injury or strain to the pelvis. Read more on the SOT website: http://www.soto.net.au/
We have found cranial adjusting to be an integral part of complete mind-body care. Many people do not realise that working with the cranium, (the sutures of the skull and each of the different bones that make up the skull complex) can have a profound impact on physical form and symptoms such as headaches, migraines, balance, dizziness and sinus issues.
At Vital Chiropractic, we also utilise extensive cranial work when working with babies who have had a difficult or traumatic birth process and children who display signs and symptoms of learning difficulty or delays with integrating primitive reflexes.
We encourage anyone who has suffered a trauma to the head or trauma during their birth process, including the use of instrumentation such as forceps, suction, and vacuum extractors to get checked by one of our chiropractors.
