Welcome to Sacro Occipital Technique Organization - USA

SOTO-USA is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization formed to promote the awareness, understanding and utilization of the Sacro Occipital Technique® method of chiropractic as founded and developed by Dr. Major Bertrand DeJarnette. Over 70 years in development by Dr. DeJarnette with collaborative efforts and research assistance from many famous names in the health care profession, Sacro Occipital Technique offers an indicator based, comprehensive approach to patient assessment and treatment.

Sacro Occipital Technique Organization - USA looks to not only lead the chiropractic profession into the 21st century but to champion the concept that through understanding and cooperation between all disciplines, excellence in patient care can be achieved.

Sacro Occipital Technique Organization - USA is a chiropractic based organization. However, we embrace the multidisciplinary arena for the purpose of sharing information to improve the quality of patient care. Membership is open to all disciplines. The Annual Clinical Symposium is an open forum, produced by SOTO-USA each Spring for the interdisciplinary exchange of information. At this meeting, like-minded professionals have the opportunity to associate, share and network together. At each Clinical Symposium we offer an Sacro Occipital Technique Research Conference with research presentations, conference proceedings, and panel discussions

In today's climate of health care reform, managed care cutbacks, and utilization reviews, there is an ever increasing awareness of what we do and how our services can aid other professionals in the care of their patients. Likewise, through the open exchange of ideas and knowledge with other allopathic and alternative practitioners, we offer our patients the benefits of our association in the multidisciplinary health care community.

In a continuing effort to offer the latest information in addition to the Clinical Symposium, SOTO-USA offers special opportunities for hands-on teaching of Sacro Occipital Technique to licensed chiropractors and chiropractic students. Special member discount benefits are also available for quality professional journals and a variety of texts and book publications.

SOTO-USA has chiropractic certification courses featuring seminars on sacro occipital technique, chiropractic manipulative reflex technique (CMRT), DeJarnette extremity techniques, Sacro Occipital Technique pediatrics, cranial techniques, and TMJ therapeutic treatment and dental chiropractic co-management. Our focus is to preserve the work of Dr. DeJarnette by teaching his work yet including or modifying material based on our current evolving evidence based literature. We are offering regional seminars nationally and internationally. Please visit our Events & Seminars page to see if there is a seminar available near you.
