Experience a Gentler Adjustment… Try Torque Release Technique

Torque Release Technique!

Experience a Gentler Adjustment…
Try Torque Release Technique

For those interested in getting adjusted but unsure if they can get past the ‘pop’ and ‘crack’ noises that come with a hands-on adjustment, there is a technique out there for you! For a gentler adjustment, we recommend Torque Release Technique (TRT).  TRT is a chiropractic technique that identifies underlying neurological imbalances through a ‘tonal’ approach.  By identifying and correcting the imbalance (subluxation) using a tool, called an Integrator, the body uses its natural healing potential to restore neurological balance and patterns within the body, allowing the body to function and heal as intended.

What Can I Expect at My Visit?

Dr. West does not take any guesses when it comes to your health and well-being.  Every patient receives care suited to his/her underlying health concerns.  Our digital x-ray system gives us a sharper image that provides both our doctor and patient with clarity.  After your x-rays are taken, you will receive a thorough analysis by Dr. West that measures spinal curve angles, abnormal tilts, and asymmetry.

Once Dr. West determines that you are a candidate for TRT, treatment can begin.  Sessions involve eliciting a deep tendon reflex at the feet (much like how the doctor elicits a reflex on your knee), to check your body’s ‘functional leg length’.  Once the leg length is determined, Dr. West will locate where on the spine to adjust, by testing and correcting the primary subluxation.  By correcting the subluxation using the integrator, you move the body closer to health by balancing the body’s neurological patterns.

Benefits to TRT:

  • Minimal force, extremely gentle
  • More comfort
  • Great for all ages, from infants to elderly
  • Studied to address health concerns such as anxiety, back pain, depression, headache, neck pain, sleep issues, dizziness, balance concerns, low energy, digestive concerns.
  • Focus is on a repeatable adjustment that is specific- with more specificity, better results are seen in less time!
  • Lasting Results- while traditional health care focuses on masking symptoms with drugs, chiropractic techniques such as TRT offer lasting results because we are identifying and treating the root cause of the health concern.
  • Without limiting chiropractic to a ‘pain reduction model’, TRT benefits those over time by improving body, mind, and emotional stress.

Benefits in Research:

The Integrator is the only chiropractic adjusting instrument that was developed out of randomized clinical trial, blinded and with placebo control. The study was designed at the University of Miami School of Medicine in collaboration with the Holder Research Institute. This low-force adjustment method corrects interruptions in the spinal column and removes blockages, which improves the overall function of the nervous system. The Integrator is a torque and recoil release adjusting instrument that blends the best of existing chiropractic techniques and principles, quantum physics, and the body/mind connection.
