Sacro Occipital Technique (SOT) was discovered and developed by Major Bertrand DeJarnette. SOT became an integration of engineering, osteopathic, and chiropractic principles honed by years of undaunted clinical research. DeJarnette’s printed materials, including technique manuals, philosophical discourses and research papers is unparalleled in the profession. SOT is designed to assist the chiropractor in locating and correcting the primary subluxation which is accomplished through evaluation of indicators relating to specific category subluxation complexes. Using a category system of analysis and treatment SOT seeks to peel off the layers of distortion to uncover the causative subluxation pattern and remove it. Sacro Occipital Technique Organization (SOTO) – USA is furthering Dr. DeJarnette’s work by teaching seminars that closely follow his completed works while at the same time having conferences, like the yearly clinical symposium, which features what is new on the horizon of SOT healthcare. SOTO-USA is also collecting all the published literature relating to SOT and has already gathered these articles in three books entitled the SOT Compendium, SOT Collection, and SOT Collection: Supplement. These landmark texts harbor most of what has been published relating to SOT to the year 2000.
