  Title A review of Torque Release Technique®
Journal Ann Vert Sublux Res. 2012 Summer;2012(3):Online access only p 72-76
Peer Review Yes
Publication Type Article

Objective: The purpose of this paper is to describe Torque Release Technique® (TRT), a non-linear tonal model of chiropractic founded upon improving well-being and human potential through management of vertebral subluxation.

Methods: Articles and studies were selected that discuss the development, objective, analysis, hypothesis, scientific pathways affected, case studies and outcomes of TRT. The following databases and sources were searched: Scopus, PubMed, and The Index to Chiropractic Literature. Review of TRT seminar notes and a hand search of recovered articles were also done to gather relevant papers from their reference sections.

Results: Four TRT case studies, two public health articles, two TRT review articles, one randomized controlled study, twelve anatomy and physiology articles, one chiropractic text book, one technique website and one set of seminar notes were utilized and reviewed for this paper.

Conclusion: TRT has a basis for research and development of subluxation-based chiropractic care for patients. Case studies and randomized controlled studies exist that demonstrate TRT’s effects in improving patient well-being and its relationship to the Brain Reward Cascade. More research is necessary to explore TRT’s role in the management of vertebral subluxation and its relationship to well-being and the Brain Reward Cascade. Link to PDF version
