Dr. Anderson receives a high degree of patient satisfaction by listening extremely closely to patient needs and concerns and staying up-to-date on any recent developments in chiropractic. We are especially familiar with the Sacro Occipital Technique. Dr. Major Bertrand DeJarnette invented the Sacro Occipital Technique in the 1930’s. Dr. DeJarnette was studying the tension in the membrane surrounding the spine — the spinal meningeal system — and how nervous system and vertebral issues may result from this tension. If the fluid enclosed by the meningeal covering flows irregularly to the brain and spine, the body compensates for this by physically adjusting. Your body’s adjustment can, in turn, stress your spine and compromise the effective action of your joints. Impaired fluid flow is easiest to see at certain bodily bottlenecks like points of attachment to the meningeal membrane as with the pelvis and cranium.
Our application of the Sacro Occipital Technique is intended to bring back the fluid flow your body requires to function by lowering the tension in the membrane. The Sacro Occipital Technique is a powerful yet gentle way to achieve this end. In fact, due to its inherent gentleness, the cranial and pelvic adjustments using the Sacro Occipital Technique encourage regular function and growth of infants and young children. It is important to make sure that the nervous system is functioning optimally from the beginning. It’s not uncommon for adult patients to begin treatment using Sacro Occipital Technique preemptively, before pain even starts. They understand how important it is to maintain a healthy nervous system.
