The ultimate goal of chiropractic care is to improve and sustain the health and functionality of the nervous system. Our bodies are always working to adapt to stress. When we physically fail to adapt, our ability to heal decreases. This correlation is directly visible in the spine, often through vertebral subluxation, or misalignments of the vertebrae.
Torque Release is an adjustment technique that is based on the traditional gentle touches performed by the chiropractor’s hands. Due to the fact that TRT works to normalize the nervous system’s tone, it is often referred to as a tonal technique. For example, when the tone is too high, it can appear as internal organ dysfunction, musculoskeletal stress and weakened immune system response. When the tone is too low, the nervous system might not send sufficient messages to the body to perform certain functions. When these functions slow down or stop completely, muscles weaken and have a difficult time supporting the skeleton, leading to a myriad of discomforts and pains.
TRT is able to solve the issues of an unbalanced neurological tone by regulating nerve, brain and spinal cord function. The technique focuses on correcting subluxations with an adjusting instrument where the dura mater, or the outermost surrounding membrane of the spinal cord and brain, attaches to the spinal sections. These attachments can be found in the upper neck, the base of the spine and the tailbone.
