Dan Madock DC explores Sacro Occipital Technique (25 year teacher), importance of cranial adjustments (craniopathy), types of pelvic misalignments, we dive into veterinary chiropractic, treatment red flags, elevator pitch and even a fishing story.
Teacher of Sacro Occiptal Research Society International ( SOT )for over 25 years. Diplomate of Craniopathy today we speak to a pioneer in keeping a chiropractic technique alive for the next generation.
As most good stories start, he inadvertently got introduced to chiropractic because he and his friend (a chiro) were after the same girl, but luck would have it she didn’t want either one of them. The friend encouraged him to go to Palmer College of Chiropractic and to specialize in Sacro Occipital Technique (SOT).
Contact Reflex Analysis: muscle testing technique. SOT was created from Dejarnette an osteopath turned chiropractic. He has a big focus on cranial bone misalignments or distortions and cerebrospinal fluid dynamics. Listen to the episode to figure out what all that means and why CSF matters. Dejarnette wrote lots of books on cranial conditions.
What are the 3 SOT pelvic misalignments? they call it Categories and pelvic wedges are a big part of the correction procedures.
1: anterior-posterior sway, wedges prone
2: sacral-iliac lateral sway, wedges supine, unilateral rib head motion dysfunction from head nod up/down. Typically left short leg, Sartorius tender on short leg, TFL tender on opposite side, C4 tender and occipital condyle tender short leg side.
3: left-right and anterior lean typically with sciatica, wedges prone but special position
SOT Seminars are held twice a year and certifications are available. SORSI.com
Dr. Madock is writing a book about Isocranial Technique (he created it). Isocranial Technique uses isometric resistance with patient movement along with Dejarnette’s Sutural Technique with a stable Category 2 to make even better corrections and it helps opens the cranial vault.
Dr. Mardock also discusses CMRT (chiropractic manipulative reflex technique) that deals with organ dysfunctional (liver, adrenal, etc.)… which is controversial within the profession.
He quickly discusses how to charge and bill wellness care versus acute care. Dr Dan also discusses a few red flag cases.
