Torque Release Technique

At Credence Chiropractic, Dr. Chris utilizes the most specific, scientific, chiropractic technique, which is called Torque Release Technique.  Torque Release Technique utilizes The Integrator to deliver very gentle, specific, chiropractic adjustments.  The Integrator is the only chiropractic adjusting instrument that was developed out of randomized clinical trial, blinded and with placebo control.  

The Integrator reproduces the entire thrust and movement components of TOGGLE RECOIL, the classic Chiropractic Method of adjusting by hand at a speed of 1/10,000th of a second.  No instrument in chiropractic history has been able to reproduce what the hands were intended to do.  Many other features are built into the integrator, however, the precocking/tip sensitive automatic release mechanism makes the Integrator the first and only chiropractic adjusting instrument capable of totally true inter-professional reproducibility.  The Integrator automatically discharges when a predetermined contact pressure is reached, allowing for true inter-professional reproducibility, and signaling the chiropractor and patient that a specific adjustment has been delivered.  It is the only hand-held instrument with adjustable left and right “TORQUE” capability as well as “RECOIL” and true adjustment of force and is also a legally marketed instrument in the United States.

The attributes that make an integrator adjustment something special and powerful are:

  1. 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.

  2. 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.  Break through from a mechanistic attempt to facilitate neurological change to a system that ensures tonal change.

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

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

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

  6. 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.

  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 systems that are used in TRT and the features of the Integrator are very standardized which means that several practitioners using the same method can deliver the same results and experience.

  10. 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.
     

Webster Technique

Along with utilizing Torque Release Technique, Dr. Chris is also certified in the Webster Technique.  This technique focuses on correcting misalignments of the sacrum, which may cause tightening and torsion of the pelvic muscles and ligaments.  It is these tense muscles and ligaments and their aberrant effect on the uterus which may prevent the baby from comfortably assuming the best possible position for birth.  

The obstetric literature has determined that correct positioning of the baby in-utero affects birth outcome and decreases the potential for undue stress to the baby’s developing spine and nerve system. The obstetric literature has also determined the importance of pelvic neuro-biomechanics for the prevention of dystocia (difficult birth).  Chiropractic literature has determined the significance of sacral adjusting in normalizing pelvic neuro-biomechanics.

It is therefore considered prudent that this specific sacral analysis and adjustment be used throughout pregnancy to detect and alleviate sacral imbalance and optimize pelvic neuro-biomechanics.  Because of the particular female adaptations from the increase of hormones, weight gain, and postural adaptations, pregnant mothers have a greater chance of sacral subluxation and neuro-biomechanical imbalance than the general population.  Because of the effect that chiropractic adjustments have on all body functions by reducing nerve system stress, pregnant mothers should have their spines checked regularly throughout pregnancy, optimizing health benefits for both the mother and baby.
