Torque Release Technique
What is the Torque Release Chiropractic Technique?
Torque Release Technique (TRT) is a type of chiropractic adjustment that is delivered while the spine is in a relaxed neutral position and does not require a lot of force. Contrast this to a traditional chiropractic adjustment which stretches the spine to a point of tension before a relatively strong thrust is given. Torque Release Technique is preferred by patients who do not enjoy the cracking and popping sounds of manual adjustments.
The Torque Release Technique is a neurological adjustment rather than a bone adjustment. It is quick, gentle, and specific. After a body analysis is performed to locate a patient’s primary subluxations, a small, handheld instrument called an Integrator delivers a strong, pin-pointed adjustment.
The Torque Release Technique does not require forceful twisting of the spine, and does not result in the common cracking and popping sounds of manual adjustments. This makes TRT preferable for some people, such as kids and the elderly.
Since the Torque Release Technique is precise, gentle, effective, and reliable, an increasing number of chiropractors are choosing to utilize the Integrator as a tool to help relieve their patients of pain and help them achieve optimal health. After frequent, consistent adjustments with the Integrator, patients can experience stress and pain relief, along with increased performance in both the body and mind.
