The Torque Release Technique, or TRT, is a very popular method of chiropractic care which has proven to provide highly effective results. Here’s a look at how TRT functions and how Dr. Alex Willard at Awaken Chiropractic & Sports Medicine uses this method to the benefit of patients in the Parker and Highlands Ranch Denver, CO areas.

How TRT Works 

Torque release technique is a specialized adjustment chiropractic technique that can correct subluxation or spinal misalignments in a gentle and non-invasive means. This supports the overall goal of chiropractic care, to build on and encourage the body’s ability to naturally heal injuries and illness, and better adapt to the stresses of daily life. 

With TRT, the chiropractor gently and manually manipulates the spine, creating a more normal tone to the nervous system, which is why it is also known as tonal technique. When your spinal tone is too high, you can experience stress to your musculoskeletal system, dysfunction in the organs, and a decreased effectiveness in your immune response. When the tone is too low, you can end up with weakened muscles and a variety of aches, pain and discomfort as the nervous system fails to properly conduct electrical impulses to your body.

TRT is specifically designed to solve these neurological tonal imbalances by helping to regulate the brain, spinal cord and nervous functions. It corrects these subluxations using a specialized adjustment instrument which helps to correct subluxations, or misalignments in the spine with highly accurate and precise movements.

How TRT Helps Your Spine

TRT uses minimal force in spinal adjustment, which releases tension and pressure, and enables the nervous system to communicate with the rest of the body more effectively from the brain all the way down the spine and throughout the entire body system. In plain terms, it encourages the body to heal and correct itself in the long term, providing improved relief and health.

TRT can reduce blockages in the system, ease tension, and allow the nervous system to re-integrate with the body in an optimal way, vastly improving bodily function and performance.

Is TRT Safe For Kids?

Torque Release Technique is a completely safe chiropractic technique for children of all ages, whether an infant or a kid in their teen years. Because it is so gentle, it relieves pressure, and it is exceptionally effective.

The Drop Table Technique

Understanding the Drop Table Technique

Also known as the Thompson technique, Dr. J. Clay Thompson created and developed this technique in the early 1950s. This technique evolved into a patented drop down table consisting of several pieces called drop pieces. These drops help ease the joints of the spine back into place through pressure application. As a result, this helps improve strength, posture, flexibility,
recovery, sleep, and health, as well as reduces stress. The Drop Table technique is especially beneficial for pregnancy care, pediatric care, and chronic back pain.

How the Drop Table Technique Works

The drop down table used for this technique has several individual pieces called drops. These drops can be adjusted in terms of their height and depth. When the chiropractor applies pressure, these drops can help by dropping downward, thus promoting the opening of joints. This technique requires minimal force, which makes it a gentle, safe, and comfortable
adjustment for patients. The Drop Table technique uses the body’s own natural healing abilities to achieve lasting results without any drugs or invasive surgeries.

Manual Adjustments

A manual adjustment is a traditional type of chiropractic, in which a licensed chiropractor uses their hands to carefully manipulate the patient’s spine. This adjustment allows the chiropractor to deliver direct, precise pressure onto the affected areas to achieve results. Manual adjustments can help reduce pain, stiffness, and soreness, as well as improve flexibility and blood circulation. There are a variety of manual adjustments that chiropractors can perform,
such as the Drop Table, Diversified, Gonstead, and Palmer techniques.
