OUR TORQUE RELEASE
Chiropractic care has been around for over a century and as many things do over time, has improved by adding new methods, techniques, knowledge, and technology to this tried-and-true practice of approaching whole-body health and wellness. Even today, our staff continually seeks ongoing education in the latest research regarding the nervous system and spinal health.
The Torque Release Technique, or TRT, is a very popular method of chiropractic care that is proven to provide highly effective results. Here’s a look at how TRT works and how Dr. Kelsey Pettitt at Key Potential Chiropractic uses this technique to achieve better and faster results for her members in the Waukee, Iowa area.
What is TRT?
The Torque Release Technique is a specialized chiropractic technique that can correct subluxation or spinal misalignments in gentle and non-invasive ways. TRT supports the overall goal of chiropractic care, which is to build on and encourage the body’s ability to naturally heal injuries and illness and better adapt to the stresses of daily life.
How Does TRT Work?
Through TRT, the chiropractor gently adjusts the vertebrae in the spine, creating a more normal tone to the nervous system, which explains why TRT is also known as the 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 help these neurological tonal imbalances by regulating the brain, spinal cord, and nervous system functions. TRT corrects these spinal misalignments by using a specialized adjustment instrument 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 from the brain all the way down the spine and throughout the body more effectively. TRT simply encourages the body to heal and correct itself in the long term, providing improved relief and health.
Is TRT Safe for Children?
Torque Release Technique is a safe chiropractic technique for children of all ages, whether an infant or a child in their teenage year. TRT is gentle, relieves pressure, and is exceptionally effective.
