SOT Chiropractor Seattle
Dr. Scoppa in the only certified SOT chiropractor in Seattle (or the whole northwest) earning his status as a Certified SOT Cranial Practitioner (CSCP) through SOTO-USA. SOT (Sacro Occipital Technique) is an advanced form of diagnosis and treatment philosophy that allows Dr. Scoppa to treat the areas that need to be addressed, with pre and post outcome measures to ensure the proper response has taken place. This system allows Dr. Scoppa to evaluate and treat issues of the head/cranium, neck and spine, as well as extremities (ankles, shoulders, etc.), and the TMJ (jaw), making it a full-body physical medicine tool that is specific, very low force, and very effective.
In addition, Dr. Scoppa utilizes Vector Point Cranial (dev. by Dr. David Denton), and has taken many hours of advanced training in the areas of TMJ assessment and treatment, and chiro-dental interdisciplinary care for TMJ and it’s associated conditions (headaches, occlusion issues, etc.).
Dr. Scoppa has his own solo practice, Northwest Structural Medicine, where he sees patients on Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday by appointment only. In addition he works in the offices of cranially oriented dentists a few days a week, primarily treating the patients of that specific dentist.
Dr. Scoppa offer stand alone treatments for TMJ and TMD (issues caused by TMJ and bite issues, such as headaches, neck and shoulder tension, back pain, tinnitus, etc.), and can also guide patients as to what, if any, dental intervention might be necessary.
