TORQUE RELEASE TECHNIQUE
“TRT” is the most up-to-date chiropractic technique available. It has been designed as part of scientific research into the health benefits of chiropractic. As such it is a mixture of the “best-of-the-best” systems of chiropractic assessment & treatment.
21st. CENTURY CHIROPRACTIC
The aim of these pages is to take you through a full explanation of how “TRT” can help you achieve the levels of health you have always desired. We will also discuss the research and evidence that supports the positive results you can hope for, some analogies to help illustrate how the techniques work, answers to some of the most common questions, and what you can expect to happen.
"TUNING YOUR NERVOUS SYSTEM"
TRT focuses a lot of attention to the strategic and vital connection points between the spinal cord and spinal column. As we gently and methodically adjust these areas of your spinal cord, we are changing the degree of tension in the central nervous system in an effort to change the “notes” that result. That is, a better level of tension.
THE EMOTIONAL CONNECTION
If your spine is getting tight – your “nerves” will be getting tense. If your emotions are getting strung-out, your spine will be winding up. When we release your spine, your emotions will relax. When you unwind your mind, your spine will release.
WHAT ABOUT MY PAIN?
Pain is not always a reliable sign of what is wrong, how much something is wrong, or where something is wrong. The good news is that TRT is a system that aims to detect and direct your Chiropractor to the source of spinal tension, and the adjustments are focused to reduce this root of your problems.
Research scientifically measuring a variety of immune system activities has consistently shown that Chiropractic adjustments improve immune function.
WHAT'S KILLING YOU
If your nervous system is able to effectively dissipate the stresses that it is exposed to, it will allow your body the flexibility to thrive in the circumstances; regardless of whether the stress is physical, emotional, mental, spiritual or chemical. If your nervous system stores and even amplifies the stress, then your body will progress towards overload.
WHAT SHOULD I BE DOING AND FEELING DURING AN ADJUSTMENT?
Here is what you should be focusing on during an adjustment to maximize your body’s response and improvement.
A special hand arrangement called a “pisiform contact” is used to deliver a specific thrust at the right place and the right time.
At Maximal Health, we use an adjusting style commonly referred to as “Diversified.” First, an analysis of your spine is performed. This can initially involve a case history and X-ray pictures of your spine.
Subsequent visits may include motion palpation, with the chiropractor feeling the spinal joints move as you turn and bend. Or, a leg check may be performed, to uncover an imbalance in the neck or lower spine.
With the malposition of one or more spinal bones identified, a specific manual thrust is administered. The direction, speed, depth and angle that are used is the result of years of experience, practice and a thorough understanding of spinal mechanics.
The energy delivered during the thrust may produce a slight “popping” sound from the shifting of gas and fluids in the joint. This sound may be interesting, but is not a guide as to the value or effectiveness of the adjustment.
While improving spinal bio mechanics can reduce nervous system interference's, virtually all joints of the body can be adjusted to help restore proper range of motion.
Anatomical model of pregnancy
Resolving subluxations where the sacrum joins the pelvis (hip) helps balance the pelvis and prepare for the optimal delivery of the baby.
Subluxations where the sacrum joins the pelvis (hip) can be quite common during the course of pregnancy. Besides potentially interfering with the baby assuming the normal head-down position in preparation for delivery, it can produce a variety of symptoms in mothers preparing for the culmination of their pregnancy.
The Sacral Subluxation
Developed by the late Larry Webster, D.C., the chiropractic technique he developed and taught chiropractors around the world, helps release stress on the pelvis, relaxing surrounding ligaments and reducing the sacral subluxation to help restore more normal function.
Sacral subluxations may cause the tightening and twisting of pelvic muscles and ligaments, constraining the uterus. The goal of the adjustment is to reduce the effects of subluxation and the associated dysfunction of the sacroiliac joint. The result? Neurobiomechanical function in the sacral/pelvic region is improved, benefiting pregnant mothers or others with sacral subluxations.
High Success Rate
The July/August 2002 issue of the Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics reports that 82% of chiropractors using the Webster Technique reported success in reducing the sacral subluxation.
Sometimes when using the Webster Technique, the associated dysfunction of the sacroiliac joint can be reduced with just one adjustment. But usually it takes between three to 10 visits over a several week period.
Because the Webster Technique relies on the inborn intelligence of the mother and baby, there is little risk. The Webster Technique is based on the positive experiences of pregnant patients, the clinical experience of its many practitioners, academic studies on the subject of sacral subluxation and its consequences to proper pelvic function
Corrective Exercises and Equipment
We teach our patients special "blueprint" exercises to help strengthen and correct their own unique problem. These exercises can be performed in the comfort of your own home and can improve the effectiveness of your spinal correction. In addition to skeletal misalignment, muscles and connective tissues can be out of place or strained by improper alignment and use. Specific exercises and stretches can help your body stay in balance and in health.
We also provide home care equipment to restore your posture.
Spinal & Postural Screenings
Posture and spinal screenings can reveal important health information and unlock the door to improved health and well-being. We provide screenings at area malls, community events, health fairs and places of employment. Contact us today to arrange a screening at your event or workplace.
