Chiropractors are known for performing spinal manipulations with their hands. However, they have many other tools in their toolbox as well.

One such tool is the Torque Release Technique (TRT). TRT works wonders for patients with all sorts of different conditions. Let’s take a look at which specific conditions the Torque Release Technique can help with!

Low Back Pain

Low back pain (LBP) is one of the most common conditions affecting people today.  LBP is much more complicated than you might think. In fact, when it comes to low back pain, it can often be hard to point to a specific area that is causing the exact pain in question. For this reason, we often refer to many types of low back pain as “nonspecific low back pain”. 

Interestingly, there is a ton of research that points to the fact that chiropractic manipulations are one of the best treatments for many different types of nonspecific low back pain.

However, if you are unable to receive a manipulation, or if you’d simply rather go with a slightly more gentle alternative, the Torque Release Technique might be the solution for you.

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Office workers and students all across the world suffer from carpal tunnel syndrome. Carpal tunnel syndrome refers to an issue where the median nerve of the wrist and hand is pinched as it crosses the wrist joint. As a result, patients with carpal tunnel syndrome often experience tingling, numbness, pain, and weakness throughout the hand.  

But carpal tunnel syndrome, much like all other conditions, is also linked to issues within the spine. By using the Torque Release Technique on a specific area of the spine, your chiropractor can often address carpal tunnel syndrome quickly and effectively. 

Neck Pain

Neck pain comes in many different types and results from a variety of issues. For example, some cases of neck pain might be the result of trauma. If you’ve ever been in a car crash, you may have experienced whiplash or neck pain in general. This neck pain may have lasted for just a short time, or it may plague you for many months or even years. 

Much like with low back pain, your chiropractor can target specific areas in your neck to alleviate pain in this region. The Torque Release Technique provides a unique solution to many cases of neck pain that don’t seem to get better with rest or other forms of treatment. 

Chronic Pain Syndromes

Issues like Fibromyalgia have caused untold amounts of physical and mental pain for patients over the years. In the past, chronic pain issues, such as fibromyalgia, were written off by doctors who assumed that these patients were simply looking for pain medication or were experiencing symptoms that were “all in their heads”.

As time has gone by, more and more healthcare providers are finally starting to accept that Fibromyalgia and other chronic pain conditions are real issues that cause real problems for patients.

That being said, there still aren’t many viable treatment options for chronic pain patients. One exception seems to be chiropractic care. Chiropractors are often able to help these patients find relief from their symptoms. By using tools, such as the TRT, chiropractors assist Fibromyalgia patients in getting their lives back.

Are you suffering from one of the above conditions or a similar issue? You may have been experiencing this issue for years, and it might seem like you will never be pain-free again. If this is the case for you, you should know that you don’t have to suffer any longer!
