I wanted to improve my skills in caring for pediatric patients. I have done care of children and cranial work with patients over my 40 years in practice and wanted to become even better and more skilled in my technique.
My three takeaways:
1. Specificity in the process of evaluating and assessing the nervous system of the pediatric patient.
2. Specificity in the force application in the spine and cranium.
3. Reinforcement of my desire to strive for clinical excellence.
This program has made me a better chiropractor technically and increased my confidence to know I am improving the wellbeing of my patients.
In a number of patients that I felt had plateaued in their progress, what I learned from Dr. Rosen, allowed greater changes of improvement in the spine and cranium. Every chiropractor should take this course. It will only enhance their clinical skills.
Dr. Marty over-delivers. The content and support allows every chiropractor regardless of their skills, technique or experience to walk away with greater skill and ability to improve how they serve.
Thank you for your commitment to excellence and elevating the service of our profession.
I decided to take the Pediatric SOT series to help enhance my skills with treating the pediatric population. Continued learning has helped me provide top notch care for all patients in need
Dr. Marty and Dr. Nancy have a passion for bettering the chiropractic profession. Though the treatment protocols take time to master you are able to implement some small steps immediately when returning to your office. The importance of "sharpening" our skills helps us be masters of the techniques we use in our offices.
Professionally and personally Dr. Marty and Dr. Nancy have become part of my chiropractic family and are amazing mentors. They help keep the teachings of the SOT protocols congruent with the philosophy of chiropractic.
Over the past year I have incorporated many of the cranial applications including adding measurements of the cranium in my exam. This simple additional step of using calipers helps parents see the changes almost immediately. It helps reaffirm their choice to seek care as they can measure change.
I absolutely would recommend the course to others. The SOT paradigm clearly seeks to treat patients on all spectrums of spinal conditions. It is protocol dependent and results are easy to come by when you follow the steps.
I would take this course year after year just to be around the masters of the technique. Dr. Marty and Dr. Nancy are leaders in the SOT community. Coming from Nebraska where Dr. Marty was taught the technique years ago has opened a network of patients waiting for the next generation chiropractor to take over their care.
I love learning from the best and hope that the education continues to flourish with these two!
I took this class series to learn even more about cranial work and pediatric adjusting. Though I've been in practice 23 years, there is always something new to learn, better ways to help patients, and so many 'ah-ha' moments.
Cranial work is very important to babies and we can really help these infants more if we are specific with our adjustments and communicate that to parents and other providers.
This program has just given me a bit more certainty and has helped when talking to others about pediatric cranial work and how it's different from cranial sacral therapy.
Dr. Rosen is the guru in this area, and everyone can learn something to better help our patients. We always need to be open to learning more.
In-utero constraint and birth trauma is significant in our babies today. What may seem like a minor issue is really a major issue to a newborn/infant/child and we cannot overlook this.
My goal in taking this series was to have certainty in knowing what to look for, what to adjust, and how to communicate that with the parents and Dr. Rosen's SOT® Pediatric seminar provides just that. The information is so in-depth and hands on that you will leave with more certainty, connection, confidence, and better communication. Taken this course has increased the referrals in my pediatric practice, so if you're on the fence about taking the series, just do it. The knowledge and hands on experience will take your practice to the next level.
I took this course to gain insight and proficiency in caring for my pediatric patients.
Having taken this program, my three takeaways are:
1. The hands on time, setting up on other participants, really helps to solidify the concepts being taught
2. There is so much more potential for neurological improvement with cranial adjusting than I had ever realized, having this new skill is transforming my practice
3. Taking the class in person rather than online is incredibly beneficial. Not just having the opportunity to get hands on, but also being able to network with other like-minded chiropractors and discover other ways to implement these techniques into practice is tremendously helpful.
Professionally, taking this course has helped me be able to serve my patients even better than I already have been. I recently used several of the cranial adjusting techniques on a young girl who had been fighting a virus, fever, congestion, cough, etc. for several days. Her mother said within an hour of the adjustment she was up and playing as if not sick at all.
I would recommend that anyone wanting to grow a pediatric practice take this course. The insights and techniques that are taught here have helped me become more well-rounded in my care. The extra tools in my toolbox help me have the confidence to care for a broader base of health concerns.
One of the reasons I would highly recommend taking this course is because patients appreciate the value of continued education. I had one mom say, "I love that you keep learning. It shows that you really care about our kids, you really want to help them heal and be their best." It doesn't get better than that!
Thanks, this has been a great course. I really appreciate what I learned in the cranial course specifically. I have applied many of the techniques already, and keep adding new ones each week. Can't wait for the last course.
I took this program to gain more skills sets/techniques/knowledge to better serve the families I take care of.
My three takeaways are:
1. Plenty of information!
2. Taught from DECADES of experience in a meaningful manner
3. A good balance of serious and casual learning atmosphere
I’ve been able to use some of the analyses and techniques in practice to ask deeper questions, find different sources of a health concern, and approach differently to see better results. Utilizing inner cranial/palate balancing in order to help a baby and mother latch more effectively allowing the feeding to be easier. This also decreased reflux, irritability, and bowel discomfort. Less stress for the entire family.
I would recommend this program. There is so much info that you won’t get anywhere else. I think Chiropractors need to continually keep up with their learning in order to be their absolute best. We know we can help create better, happier, healthier families. We need all the possible skills and knowledge to do so. This course is absolutely part of that learning process. Sign up and have fun!
I took this program to increase my knowledge, confidence and proficiency in treating children and babies. This program will provide the knowledge, confidence and proficiency to treat children and babies.
I have increased the number of pediatric patients in my practice and expanded greatly in positive outcomes.
In the past week I have successfully treated a patient with Meniere's Disease, Vertigo and Tinnitus. The Meniere's successfully snorkeled in Antigua. The vertigo patient won her tennis league, and the Tinnitus patient is skiing in Vail.
Marty is a Unicorn. You should learn as much as possible because he is a very rare combo of SOT/Pediatrics/Cranial knowledge and experience. Totally insane!
You get practical tools. The book is comprehensive. It's on my desk and I refer to it a few times a week EVERY week.
I took this course to advance my knowledge in SOT and increase my pediatric skills.
Keep an open mind. Don’t expect to get it all at once. Start using pieces in your office as soon as you get home.
I’ve been able to help more people in my office. I worked on a 2-year-old child who stopped snoring after two adjustments. A one year old child stopped grinding his teeth after one adjustment. Improved nursing of a three-week-old are some of the results I have seen.
SOT is a necessary tool to have in your tool box if you see children. After 26 years in practice and helping thousands of children, I took this course and am implementing pieces of it in practice and seeing tremendous results.
I took the course to improve the chiropractic care I serve to our people. I consistently work to improve myself so I can give the best care possible.
We have a lot of babies in the office and I have done more intraoral adjusting and seen very good results. My communication has improved with my people as well.
Dr Rosen's skill, knowledge and experience in caring for infants is second to none. It has been one of the most important adjusting workshops I have ever done and will continue to do.
Dr Watson and Dr Rosen have created a wonderful community. I feel blessed to be part of this community. You both are a blessing and much appreciated.
I took Dr Rosen’s ICPA course years ago and wanted to do the full series when he started it but the timing wasn’t right. When the Florida series was announced, I jumped at the opportunity! I never thought SOT was for me, but his presentation of the protocols made so much sense. A big takeaway was not doing everything just because it’s there. Clear things slowly and let the nervous system adapt. This series has so many very experienced docs attending. I think this information hits differently when you have practice experience. We are never done growing and learning.
Just implementing a small amount of what sticks on Monday was a game changer. My results with my patients, even the adults, are so much better.
My first week back from class, I started a new pregnant patient who has had frequent headaches her whole life even with regular Chiro care. I used occipital fibers analysis and adjusted her occipital compression and frontal and she hasn’t had a single headache for the last 2 months. She brought her very active 2 year old daughter in, also has been under regular chiropractic care since her.
I tell everyone that this course will change your practice. There is a lot of material, but it is presented in an organized way. Dr Risen and Dr Watson are so accessible. If you are in their courses, they are available to you. The support from them is invaluable. This is life-changing work.
Our office took this course as a team to grow in pediatric care and learn how to more effectively and confidently use tonal techniques. Be ready to learn and grow, don’t be afraid to step out of your comfort zone and ask for help, have fun learning this new material!
This program has made me think about the structure we currently have in place for new patients, especially pediatric patients. This information has opened up a window into a new way of completing exams and caring for new patients.Slowly implementing intra-oral work has been a game changer for many of our patients experiencing TMJ and jaw issues.
I would recommend this program as this information is invaluable to have and implement into your office. I love that this series has given me so many new ways to care for specific challenges that are prevalent in our world. Whether you’re ready to dive head first into the tonal technique world, of dip your toe in one day at a time, Drs. Rosen and Watson are there to guide you every step of the way. You leave feeling enriched and ready to tackle at least one aspect of the program, then willing to start implementing more and more over time. I think all chiropractors would benefit from this series, as it gives you more and more layers to chiropractic and caring for the world we live in today.
Thank you for sharing your wealth of knowledge with us, it is much appreciated and changing people's lives every day!
I took this program to feel more confident in treating the pediatric population, gain a better exam, ROF, treatment ideas, and techniques.
My three takeaways:
Practical information you can take and use immediately after the seminar.
Totally made my exam even better and based on neurological findings.
The confidence I gained by the hands-on portion and being amongst the team.
This program made me so much more sound and confident in my findings, recommendations, and poured into my philosophy. A baby with plagiocephaly: added in the cranial work and SOR and it made such a big difference. I also appreciated understanding the dura meningeal traction subluxation and being able to educate his parents on what was happening in their child's nervous system.
I've taken other pediatric courses and left without feeling confident in the information, this was completely opposite then those courses. If you see the pediatric population, you need these courses. It’s technique plus philosophy. It keeps the Chiropractic art alive in this rapidly changing world.
Immense gratitude for you both and the path you've taken to create these teaching containers and the energy you pour into all of us. Thank you.
The pediatric certification program is a gold mine of quality information. The depth of the pediatric exam is such that, when done, there will be no doubt in your mind what needs to be done and why. Clinical certainty is such an important part of practice, and the information gained throughout the program has significantly uplevel my clinical certainty. In addition to an in-depth overall exam and analysis procedure that's taught, there are also several condition specific indicators that have also been impactful and helpful in practice. Daily in practice I'm able to apply the information gained through the certification to not only better serve my community, but also to feel good at the end of the day that we were able to offer our patients the finest of what's possible in chiropractic. Thank you Drs. Rosen and I look forward to continuing on this journey!
Thank you, truly, for offering the program. It has made a big difference.
This was truly one of my favorite courses thus far in practice.
I can't recommend Dr. Rosen's Certified SOT® Pediatric Practitioner course enough! I work exclusively with pediatric chiropractic patients and this series has absolutely helped me become more specific and confident - even after almost a decade in practice seeing infants and children. Understanding SOT® Cranial adjusting has helped me elevate my examination and adjusting skills, especially with infants and the immense growth and change that takes place in the first few years of life. Drs. Marty and Nancy are an engaging and passionate team that make hands-on learning relatable and easy to implement. Their knowledge is invaluable.
If you care for infants and children, this seminar series is hands down the best for hands-on training. You will have the tools to bring your practice to the next level so that you can change lives and change the future.
Taking Dr. Rosen's Pediatric SOT® series is one of the better decisions I have ever made for my practice. I first met Dr. Rosen while in school when I first took his ICPA seminar. The integration and depth of information were unlike anything I had experienced in any seminar. His certification series took that experience to a new level. I feel more confident and certain than ever before in delivering the highest quality of chiropractic care to children, especially infants, in my practice. That certainty has translated into more commitment for children and entire families in my practice than ever before.
I can't begin to speak highly enough about the Certification Series! I had originally taken Dr. Rosen's class through the ICPA courses and that class is just a drop in the bucket in comparison to what is taught in the Certification series. The ICPA class was an introduction to Dr. Rosen's work, but even his stand alone 16-hour Pediatrics class is at least twice as much information as the ICPA class was.
The Certification Series blows both out of the water. It is where you truly begin to work in the world that Dr. Rosen has created in the evaluation and care of Pediatric Patients!
I have been out to Boston to attend Dr. Rosen's seminars multiple times, repeating classes and each time I learned something new, understood a bit better, and reviewed a portion that I had missed the previous times. I intend to continue to repeat courses over and over again to strengthen my understanding of the material even more! They are that good!
Having Dr. Nancy Watson and Dr. Erin Rosen assisting in the teaching is a God-send as well! This ensures that you are getting tons of hands-on guided closely by Master Doctors that live these techniques every day! Not one of my questions has ever went unanswered!
I promise you, taking the Certification course is worth every penny and more. But I do caution you: hold onto your hats and come ready to dive deep! Dr. Rosen never leaves you hoping for more information! You will tap out before he does!
I decided to take this course because my own son had an amazing experience with cranial work and I've always been intrigued by it. Dr Rosen is known to be the best to learn from!
My three takeaways are that the nervous system also lives above C1, that cranial work is great for everyone, but especially the tough cases and that having a tool belt of objective neurological indicators is one of the most valuable investments in time and money you can make.
The outcomes that have been witnessed have been amazing. I am on a team of other chiros, but I am the only one that practices like this and the difference is notable. Having a better understanding of the neurospinal cranial system has helped me to better understand subluxation as a whole.
I have had a 3 year old non-verbal autistic girl who speaks after cranial work. The has actually happened twice in the last 6 months with two different little girls. Both had previous OT/PT intervention to no avail. I had a little being with severe CW sphenobasilar strain and was checked by the state for disability (to qualify for services). It took 3 months to get the appointment and in that time we were able to make immense changes.
This training has provided me with guidance and certainty where other techniques and courses have left me feeling unsatisfied. I hope to continue my mastering of SOT® based neuro-tonal work to help my office, to help spread the work of Major DeJarnette.
I had taken Dr Rosen's ICPA class many years ago and got to a point in practice that I needed more knowledge in cranial work. Dr Rosen is the guy for the job.
There is so much information, take one or two parts to start and get good at those then build on that. Specificity is everything, take the time to do a full evaluation. You are what your patients need. You are learning this information to better help and serve.
I have more confidence in my exam and cranial adjusting. I can see and feel what is happening with more specificity now, thus giving my patients better care.
After the cranial class, I used some of the sphenoid work on a toddler that I had been stumped on with improvements. Now he sleeps great and the parents are super excited.
I am so blessed to have the opportunity to learn under Marty and Nancy. The breathe of knowledge that they share in order for others to better serve their patients is a blessing to the chiropractic profession.
I took this program to expand and enhance my skills relevant to the increasing pediatric population in my office. My takeaways are that you can never have enough knowledge or training, that learning from Dr Marty is a must for any provider caring for infants and children and that incorporating technique a little over time does not have to be intimidating.
I have an increased awareness of cranial distortions already walking into my office and it is easier to assess and correct cranial distortions.
Recently, a newborn came in with skull/cranial distortions. Occiput was bulging. After incorporating techniques from this class, there was significant changes in the occiput. Over a few weeks of treatment, skull measurements changed within normal ranges.
Drs Rosens are so welcoming and truly care about their students. The success of their program is apparent and the service they providence is much needed in the chiropractic world!
I am more of a sports chiropractor with soft tissue techniques and I found that my knowledge in pediatrics was very low. In Quebec, the pediatric part if very basic and we do not see the cranial techniques.
This is a whole new world of cranial observation for me. It's all new. I was observing asymmetry, but I wasn't able to treat. This course puts words to the observation. Before this course I was never able to evaluate the palate and this course confirmed the importance of the vagus nerve.
I am more thrilled to see babies in my practice and I don't refer to them out anymore. I am more confident to take responsibility for plagiocephaly.
This summer, I had a 6 month old with plagiocephaly and infant torticollis, He wasn't able to rotate his head completely and was able to turn from back to belly on one side. It was an osteopath that referred me to this patient. After 2-3 treatments, he was able to do full head rotation and back to belly to back on both sides. He loved chiropractic treatment with all smiles the whole treatment.
