Abstract/Notes Objective: This article explores the application of chiropractic, specifically Torque Release Technique™ (TRT), improvements in general health with an emphasis on neuroendocrine tone, and uterine cyclic function in a pre-menopausal female adult.

Clinical Features: A pre-menopausal female with a history of a normal 28-day menstrual cycle began exhibiting a sluggish cycle of 24-26 days and excessive bleeding (menorrhagia), after she entered her fourth decade. In the context of her Jewish religious practice and cultural lifestyle, this change led to infertility. Physical intimacy is prohibited during the time this culture defines as the menstrual period, and the altered cycle rendered her unavailable for intimacy at the appropriate time for fertility.

Chiropractic Care and Outcome: Tonal chiropractic, the Torque Release Technique (TRT), was utilized as the clinical approach of subluxation-based care for a period of five weeks. The outcome included a shift in uterine cycle function which allowed this woman to follow the guidelines of her culture and be available to become pregnant.

Conclusions: Although seemingly evident that the clinical application of chiropractic care, specifically TRT care is associated with the client’s upgrade in neuroendocrine tone, further studies are warranted.
