Sacro Occipital Technique (SOT)

SOT SOT is one of Chiropractic's most enduring, gentle and effective techniques and is an absolute favourite with patients. This is because it is not only extremely effective but is very gentle and the results last so long. The pelvis, including the ilia and sacrum, is the foundation; the base of a 24 floor skyscraper of vertebrae which holds aloft your cranium, a tightly configured dynamic arrangement of separate bones. This complex and completely integrated arrangement holds, encases and protects the entire central nervous system thus making it so vital to the health and integrity our entire body. By ensuring that your pelvis is balanced and your "tower of vertebrae" are then straight, your head and brain are then well supported. SOT uses specific indicators to direct the doctor to undertake very specific adjustments with typically the minimal of physical input. Our Doctors of Chiropractic are continually increasing their knowledge of this exceptional technique by attending continuation training by SOTO Europe and also by the master Chiropractor Dr Jonathan Howat of Oxford Chiropractic Clinic.

Vojta Therapy/ Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilisation (DNS)

We are born with a pre-programmed set of instructions on how to survive and thrive. This includes reflexes that control how we breath, beat our heart, digest our food, eat, sit up straight, roll over and so much more. As we gain conscious control of our systems we often mentally override our natural programmes as our posture, breathing and mannerisms become sloppier. Professor Vaclav Vojta, a Czechoslovak paediatrician, discovered some extraordinary methods of getting the body to re-engage with the natural reflexes with which we were born. Once our muscles, organs, and most importantly our nervous system are functioning as close to the way nature had intended, our core can support us, our smooth muscle organs regain their motility and our nervous system can relearn to communicate as smoothly as nature had intended. Our Doctor of Chiropractic has undertaken significant instruction from members of the Prague School and also under instructors trained at the Vojta School in Germany.

Sports Injury and Rehabilitation

Our Doctor of Chiropractic uses many different rehab techniques to rebuild the body when it has been injured. Primary focus is on Active Care including exercises, Myo-fascial Release, Trigger Point Therapy, Proprioceptive re-education, joint manipulation, core stability retraining, spinal stability and most importantly Chiropractic adjustments. At Tweed Chiropractic Clinic we do not use passive care such as Ultrasound although on the rare occasion that we feel that you need this form of treatment, as is our principle we will work in partnership with another health provider such as a physiotherapist.
