Torque Release Technique

Torque Release Technique

What is Torque Release Technique?


A Torque Release Technique (TRT) adjustment can be delivered with the spine in a perfectly relaxed neutral position with the perfect amount of force, whereas a traditional adjustment may require the spine to be stretched to a position of tension followed by the manual thrust by hand to sufficiently open the spinal joints to activate a cavitation response.


Practice members enjoy the specific adjustment without the force, cracking, and popping sound of manual adjustments.

How does Torque Release Technique differ from other chiropractic techniques?

Chiropractic has never had a scientific model that represents subluxation-centered chiropractic—a model that explained the subluxation for the true role it plays. With chiropractic having entered its second century, it is essential that a truly up-to-date, functional, scientific, neurological-based model lead the forefront and transform healthcare.


There have been endless definitions of the subluxation. Many pioneers have attempted to develop techniques to diagnose, locate, and correct subluxations. Although much greatness has come, chiropractic has been left with mechanistic and/or linear protocols that have stood in the way of chiropractic’s true potential.


In 1994, the Holder Research Institute discovered (1) that only vertebrates have opiate receptor site brain reward, establishing the vertebral subluxation complex as the hallmark of insult of the vertebrate’s ability to express a state of well-being to its fullest potential.


“The Brain Reward Cascade” is a scientific model (2) that provides an understanding of the neurophysiological mechanisms of how the mesolimbic system expresses a state of well-being. A lack of state of well-being is referred to as Reward Deficiency Syndrome (RDS). The vertebral motor unit and the dorsal horn (3) are the common denominators. Due to its intimate relationship to the “The Brain Reward Cascade,” a subluxation-free spine becomes mandatory for the expression of one’s greatest potential. If subluxated, Reward Deficiency Syndrome is manifested (4).


“The transition from the mechanistic model of disease versus health, in which we have been stuck for so many years, to a vitalistic model of wellness can be the hallmark of the coming millennium.”

To abandon disease is to abandon its concept

RDS and the Brain Reward Cascade Model demands non-linear time sequence adjusting priorities. The neurophysiology of the Brain Reward Cascade, as well as any other nervous system components, teach us that non-linear time sequence adjusting priorities are mandatory to any chiropractic technique protocol.


Torque Release Technique® was developed out of respect for non-mechanistic, non-linear timed sequence adjusting priorities and embraces the Brain Reward Cascade Model (5).

Utilizing the Integrator™, a torque and recoil release-adjusting instrument, combines the best of existing chiropractic techniques and principles, quantum physics, and the body/mind connection—creating the first integrated chiropractic system for the second century of chiropractic.

What is subluxation?

To gain an understanding about subluxation, we need to first understand that the nervous system is responsible for controlling ever other system in the body. Gray’s Anatomy textbook states the “nervous system coordinates all organs and structures of the human body.” The central nervous system consists of the brain and spinal cord.

A subluxation is when the spine or vertebrae has shifted out of proper alignment affecting the communication between the brain and the body.

Chiropractic Adjustments work by helping place your spine/body in the proper position that then allows the mind and body to communicate properly letting your own body heal and regulate itself properly.

Chiropractic Adjustments reduce the stress placed on your nervous system and address the body as a whole, enabling you to think, perform, move, and heal better. By reducing the stress, your body is able to fight off disease and maintain balance.

Your NERVOUS SYSTEM has the innate ability to heal, let us help unleash your bodies potential!

Torque release technique® is a model that utilizes the multi-factorial approaches pioneered in the following techniques:

  • Toftness
  • Palmer Upper Cervical
  • Network Chiropractic Spinal Analysis
  • Thompson Terminal Point
  • Van Rumpt, D.N.F.T.
  • DeJarnette, S.O.T.
  • Logan Basic

Why get an adjustment?

There are many things that can lead to subluxations within the spine. Some of the most common include:

  • A vertebra moving out of alignment (“misalignment”) because of an impact or fall.
  • Poor posture leading to misalignment of the entire spine.
  • Intervertebral joint damage causing joint swelling.
  • An inflammatory response within the body caused by everyday habits. Poor diet, lack of exercise, dietary triggers, and emotional & psychological stress.
  • Degenerative Disc Disease and Osteoporosis.
  • Tight muscles.
