Our mission is to share the OTZ discovery with the chiropractic profession who can use it and also with the patients who need it.
OTZ Methods develops chiropractors through its brand of observation and approach titled “TOP DOWN ANALYSIS”, which involves specific correction of the occipital-atlanto subluxation and then moves down sequentially through the spine. Emphasis is also placed on anterior cervical adjusting and also the difficult cervicothorasic junction (C7-T4). In OTZ land we call the cervicothorasic area “the vault” because it can be difficult to adjust. The occipital-atlanto subluxation pattern, known as the Hatcher-Murphy Subluxation, is explored in great detail. Resolution of this subluxation can have profound effects on brainstem nuclei, especially cranial nerve 11 which is involved in Frozen Shoulder Syndrome and cranial nerve 10 which, through the poly vagal response, can have profound effects on children with developmental delays. Chiropractic functional neurology is discussed during the seminars to explain how this method of analysis and treatment can affect conditions such as Frozen Shoulder Syndrome, Migraine Headache, Vertigo, Insomnia, Bell’s palsy, Autism, ADHD, posture, as well as others.
We have found that most chiropractors overlook the importance of the integrity of the atlanto-occipital joint, anterior cervicals, and the vault. Our past seminar attendees tell us that applying this method of analysis and treatment to their patients has created tremendous change in their patients AND their practices. The OTZ Method is a tool that every chiropractor should have at their disposal.
