IN SEARCH OF CLINICAL EXCELLENCE WITHIN S.O.T. : A TRIBUTE TO DR. ROBERT COTÉ’S
LIFELONG CLINICAL RESEARCH
By Caroline Vitez, DC, DACNB
The late Dr Robert Coté was one of the top instructors working under Dr. DeJarnette. He has bequeathed his lifelong clinical research to assist us in our endeavor of bettering our clinical skills.
After all his years of clinical experience, he never stopped being amazed at how the basic SOT principles were proven to be correct and consistent with the new research in the field of neurophysiology.
He consistently studied the patients that were not responding positively to treatment and dedicated his life to understanding the underlying causal mechanisms.
His extensive clinical experience has led him to further his understanding of the body’s compensatory mechanisms involving mechanical patterns, neurophysiology and bio- energy, all within the SOT model of indicators. Understanding, recognizing and correcting these compensatory mechanisms can facilitate the resolution of some of our most difficult cases.
The objective of this lecture is to discuss these compensatory mechanisms and their respective indicators.
Breakdown of the lecture:
- A brief description of Dr Robert Coté’s professional background.
- The 2nd part of the presentation will be spent on the following:
- Clinical discussion
- Clinical Theory of an organ malfunction
- Reflexes from a cervical ‘’overload’’
- Clinical procedure
- Treatment procedure
- Subluxation patterns
