The Science of Torque Release Technique

Adjusting primary subluxations leads to success the easy way.

Adjusting primary subluxations leads to success the easy way.

What is the difference between a primary, secondary and tertiary subluxations? Which is better to adjust?

Torque Release Technique uses 16 different indicators to determine where the primary subluxation is versus secondary and tertiary subluxations. When primary subluxations are adjusted over secondary subluxations, more tension is released off the central nervous system. This means that you feel better faster and that feeling lasts longer.

Only one primary subluxation exists at a time. When the primary subluxation is adjusted and innate intelligence accepts, holds and corrects the dural tension, the secondary and tertiary subluxations will abate. In other words, when the primary subluxation is adjusted, the body reads this change and accepts it. Then the body holds and corrects the way the body supports the new correction. Any secondary tensions from subluxations will stop.

Did you know that approximately 8 to 10 secondary and tertiary subluxations abate for every primary subluxation adjusted? That’s amazing!

Once the primary subluxation is adjusted, only then will the next stress layer manifest exposing the new subluxation pattern the body adopted. Subluxation patterns are held by the body because of prolonged stress responses.  Adjusting the primary subluxation peels away stress layer by layer.

You can find out how many of these stress layers your body is holding by booking a complimentary discovery session. Here, the computer program will measure what your Core Score how long prolonged the stress response has been endured.

Many techniques, adjustment styles and other forms of therapy focus on adjusting the painful secondary and tertiary subluxations. This approach is a linear and non-randomized. If the same secondary and tertiary subluxations were adjusted repeatedly, the same subluxation pattern develops with greater tenacity. The patient will eventually plateau in their healing journey as the body better practices returning to the subluxated pattern.

To continually progress through care, adjustments need to be non-linear and randomized to avoid the plateau.

With TRT, you continue to feel as much change on the 300th visit as during the first week of care. There is no such thing as “maintenance care” because there is continued improvement with each adjustment.

The goal of tonal adjustments is not to return you to the state you were in before but to reveal the best possible version of you.
