Sacro Occipital Technique is a specialized, comprehensive, gentle and innovative Chiropractic Technique, named because of the relationship between the sacrum (base of the spine) and the occiput (base of skull).
One of the functions of the sacrum is to pump Cerebro-Spinal Fluid (CSF) from the base of the spine back up the spinal canal to the brain and throughout the nervous system. The occiput also helps to pump CSF. This is a wavelike oscillation in the covering of the brain and spinal cord and acts as its circulatory system. It functions much like breathing, in that it has a cyclic tightening and loosening phase. The normal function of this cranial sacral respiratory mechanism is recognized as a primary function of life in the body and must be normal if all functions of the body are to be normal.
I've been seeing Gloria for a few years now after leaving a previous chiro I felt wasn't quite fulfilling my treatment needs. I've been so happy with the switch that now my wife and I both see her on a monthly basis. I'm a bit high maintenance, rightfully so since I fell on my neck at 14. But between that and doing a number of outdoor activities, Crossfit and just aging in general Gloria has been able to keep me feeling great....right up until I mess things up again and need her to right my wrongs. Needless to say, you'd be doing your body a favor paying Adkins Chiropractic a visit and having Gloria help put you back together again, and again, and again. ;)
I have been seeing Dr. Adkins for a little over a year. I can not recommend her enough and there are not enough stars to give her. I had an episode last March where I physically couldn't stand straight up or walk. I called around and she scheduled me that day. Through several sessions, a scheduled MRI, and specific tools she recommended I have been able to walk pain free and recently been able to get back into exercising. All of that without taking any type of pill. I owe it all to her!
The best Chiropractor I have ever encountered! I am so fortunate to have found Dr. Adkins. She is so gifted in what she does. I went in after a car crash with unbearable pain in my lower back and neck and after a month of treatments I am basically pain-free! Mind you I was starting to feel better after the first couple treatments.
Amazing chiropractor who really cares about her patients!
With Dr. Adkins you get much more than a chiropractor you get an experienced healer with a deeply knowledgeable, holistic understanding of the human body. I have been going to her for over a year and she keeps my body well tuned. When I recently suffered a minor car accident, she skillfully helped me through the process of getting back to health. She is also very personable and down to earth. I can pretty much ask her anything. I love that. I highly recommend her services.
Dr. Adkins is a great chiropractor! She has wonderful bedside manner and very intelligent. I went to her for pain in multiple areas of my body, not only did she fix the issues, she gave me tips and tricks to keep the issues away. I recommend her to anybody who tells me they have chronic pain. It has been a few months since we have finished a series of treatments and my pain is gone. She is amazing.
