Structural Conditions

At Northwest Structural Medicine, both our doctors have extensive training at advanced chiropractic techniques and are the only two certified SOT practitioner in the entire Washington state.

Sacro-Occipital Technique (SOT) is a low-force, gentle chiropractic technique which utilize body indicators and manual muscle testing to assess musculo-skeletal, cranial, neurological and visceral dysfunctions in a comprehensive way.  


On top of relieving your pain, we also aim to address the root cause of your problem so we can achieve optimal balance for your body, both structurally and neurologically.

SOT is ideal for those who are worry of having their spine "cracked", or want a different approach to traditional chiropractic care.  

Our youngest patient is 1 month old and eldest is 103. SOT is an efficient and gentle technique that suits patient's at all ages.
