Torque Release Technique (TRT)

Chiropractic has been around for over a century, and has steadily improved for the last 110 years, adding new methods, techniques, knowledge and technology to this tried-and-true method of approaching whole body health and wellness and long-term relief and results. Even today, our staff continually seeks ongoing education in the latest research regarding nervous system and spinal health.

The Torque Release Technique, or TRT, is a very popular method of chiropractic care which has proven to provide highly effective results. Here’s a look at how TRT functions and how Dr. Ryan Mulcahy at Rhino Chiropractic uses this method to the benefit of patients in the Victor area.

How TRT Works

Torque release technique is a specialized adjustment chiropractic technique that can correct subluxation or spinal misalignments in a gentle and non-invasive means. This supports the overall goal of chiropractic care, to build on and encourage the body’s ability to naturally heal injuries and illness, and better adapt to the stresses of daily life.

With TRT, the chiropractor gently and specifically adjusts the spine, creating a more normal tone to the nervous system, which is why it is also known as 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 solve these neurological tonal imbalances by helping to regulate the brain, spinal cord and nervous system functions. It corrects these subluxations using a specialized adjustment instrument which helps to correct subluxations, or misalignments in the spine with highly accurate and precise movements.  It also includes using manual methods by hand to correct these aberrant misalignments for global postural correction and resetting nervous system function.

How TRT Helps your Spine

TRT uses low and gentle forces spinal adjustments, which releases tension and pressure, and enables the nervous system to communicate with the rest of the body more effectively from the brain all the way down the spine and throughout the entire body. In plain terms, it encourages the body to heal and correct itself in the long term, providing improved healing, relief and overall function with health restoration.

TRT can reduce blockages in the system, ease tension, and allow the nervous system to re-integrate with the body in an optimal way, vastly improving bodily function and performance.

Is TRT Safe for Kids?

Torque Release Technique is a completely safe chiropractic technique for children of all ages, whether an infant or a kid in their teen years. Because it is so gentle, it relieves pressure, and it is exceptionally effective.

Dr. Ryan is also one of very few Doctors around the country that is Advanced Proficient Certified in the Torque Release Technique.

Webster Technique for Pregnant Women

Dr. Ryan Mulcahy has completed the requirements needed to be officially Webster certified by the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association (ICPA) and is acknowledged by the ICPA as proficient in this specific chiropractic skill. Dr. Mulcahy will better serve pregnant women who are preparing for safer and easier birth outcomes.

Webster certified doctors are taught gentle adjusting techniques, individual case management systems and evidence-informed practice to best care for pregnant women. In addition to this, doctors are given an in-depth view of birth and are provided with the necessary skills and resources to support women who want safer natural births.

Dr. Mulcahy has undergone a written and a clinical exam for Webster Certification proficiency. This technique includes a specific chiropractic pelvic analysis and accompanying adjustment. The goal of the adjustment is to reduce the effects of pelvic misalignment and to restore normal function and balance in the pelvis.

In the care of pregnant women, this pelvic misalignment may lead to difficult labor for the mother (i.e. dystocia). Dystocia, as defined by William’s Obstetrics, is caused by inadequate uterine function, pelvic misalignment, and baby malposition. Preliminary research indicates that chiropractic adjustments using the Webster Technique may have a positive effect on birth outcomes by addressing these three causes of dystocia.

This certification enables Dr. Mulcahy to expand his range of care to individuals throughout pregnancy with excellence and in accordance with evidence-informed practice.
