Our Chiropractic Technique
The Torque Release Technique
Dr. TJ Alger is certified in Torque Release Technique (TRT). This has been proven, through research, to be one of the most specific and scientific chiropractic techniques in the world. This technique provides our practice members, of any age, with the most gentle and reproducible adjustments available. It is a mixture of the best-of-the-best systems of chiropractic assessment and care.
TRT involves using The Integrator, a torque and recoil adjusting instrument which automatically discharges when a predetermined contact pressure is reached. With chiropractic having entered its second century, this up-to-date, functional, neurologically-based model is the most researched technique available today.
Dr. TJ conducts an analysis that identifies where there is any nerve interference (if any) down to the vertebral level. He then administers very gentle, specific chiropractic adjustments to align the spine and remove the interference. This specificity leads to more efficient results that are long lasting.
Advantages of Our Technique
PRECISE: When using an Integrator you can pinpoint the exact point on the spine that requires adjustment of nerve frequency. Manual adjusting lacks this degree of accuracy.
SPECIFIC: The force, frequency of energy, torque, speed and thrust provided by the Integrator have all been tailor-made to deliver the perfect amount of energy to help normalize nerve function.
GENTLE: An Integrator adjustment can be delivered with the spine in a relaxed neutral position with the perfect amount of force. A traditional adjustment requires the spine to be stretched to a position of tension followed by the manual thrust by hand to sufficiently open the spinal joints to activate a cavitation response.
FAST: The incredibly fast but shallow impulse is one of the secrets to the effectiveness of this chiropractic adjustment while being so gentle.
RECOIL: Another secret ingredient built into the Integrator is recoil. This bounce in the impulse increases the body’s response.
TORQUE: Subatomic particles, atoms, muscles, and human bodies move in three dimensions. The three-dimensional impulse of the Integrator maximizes the effectiveness on the human body.
EFFECTIVE: The benefits of Integrator adjustments have been measured by scientific research and this research has been published in major peer-reviewed medical journals.
RELIABLE: The way that the Integrator delivers an adjustment is very consistent and reliable so the right amount of force and energy is transmitted during each and every adjustment.
CONSISTENT: The systems that are used in TRT and the features of the Integrator are very standardized. This ensures practitioners using this method can deliver the same results and experience.
RECOGNIZED: The Integrator holds several patents and is a legally marketed device for the adjustment of the Vertebral Subluxation; only available to licensed Doctors of Chiropractic that have taken the extra education to become certified.
