torque release technique

trailhead chiropractic utilizes Torque Release Technique (TRT). a system proven through research, to be one of the most specific, scientific chiropractic techniques in the world. Torque Release Technique provides members of all ages with gentle and reproducible chiropractic adjustments. We utilize this technique to find the root cause of health issues; and because of that, we get to see life changing results daily.


TRT uses minimal force in spinal adjustment, which releases tension and pressure, and enables the nervous system to communicate from the brain down the spine and throughout the body more effectively. TRT encourages the body to heal and correct itself, not only providing short term symptom relief, but long term optimal health.

INTEGRATOR Resize_1.jpeg

the integrator

Out of the largest human population research study in chiropractic history comes the Integrator™.

Years of development, testing. and design went into creating an instrument that would deliver the third dimensional dynamic that adjusting by hand embraced but no other instrument in chiropractic could deliver—"TORQUE" and "RECOIL."

The major advantage of the integrator is its ability to deliver a specific and gentle adjustment at a reproducible frequency inthe exact location where nerve function has become “facilitated” (irritated). TRT is used to stimulate your nervous system (A “jump-start” for your body’s electrical system) in such a way that it will release and reduce tension, assisting your body to self-correct.

The attributes that make an Integrator adjustment so powerful and effective are:

  1.  PRECISE: Dr. Tom can pinpoint the exact point on the spine that requires adjustment of nerve function.

  2.  SPECIFIC: The force, frequency of energy, torque, and speed provided by the Integrator have all been tailor-made to deliver the perfect amount of energy to help normalize nerve function.

  3.  GENTLE: An Integrator adjustment can be delivered with the spine in a perfectly relaxed position with a controlled amount of force.

  4.  FAST: The incredibly fast but shallow impulse is one of the secrets to the effectiveness of this adjustment and the reason for it being so gentle.

  5.  RECOIL: Another one of the secret ingredients built into the Integrator is recoil: This bounce in the impulse increases the body’s nerve system response.

  6.  TORQUE: Subatomic particles, atoms, muscles, and human bodies all move in three dimensions: The three-dimensional impulse of the Integrator maximizes the effectiveness on the human body.

  7.  EFFECTIVE: The benefits of Integrator adjustments have been measured by scientific research and this research has been published in major peer-reviewed medical journals.

  8.  RELIABLE: The way that the Integrator delivers an adjustment is very consistent and reliable so that the right amount of force and energy is transmitted on each and every adjustment.

  9.  CONSISTENT: The assessment, examination and adjustments that are used in TRT are standardized which means that several practitioners using the same method can deliver the same results and experience.

  10.  RECOGNIZED: The Integrator is patented for the correction of Subluxation and is the first device of its kind with an FDA accreditation.
