If you spoke to 100 different people who had been to a chiropractor about their experience and adjustments, you would get 100 different responses. There are hundreds of different chiropractic adjusting techniques which all work in their own unique way. At Thrive, we use just one that we feel is the best suited for the most number of people and achieves the best results.
No Twisting, No Cracking, No Popping
Chiropractic has come a long way since its beginning. Chiropractors no longer need to twist, bend, or pull our practice members to achieve an adjustment. Advances in techniques and instruments has given us the ability to be gentle and specific with our adjustments. Utilizing this small but effective instrument shown in the picture above, called an Integrator, allows our doctors specificity like never before. This gives us the ability to target only the bones of your spine that need to be adjusted while avoiding those that shouldn't be.
Chiropractic Adjustments After Surgery
Many people today have had surgery on their spine whether it be due to degeneration, scoliosis, disc problems, etc. Our technique's specificity allows our doctors to work on areas of the spine without impacting surgical areas. Many have found adjustments after surgery, especially fusions, to be beneficial. After fusions, the vertebral segments directly above and below begin to wear and tear more quickly due to lost range of motion. Maintaining a well aligned spine can slow down unnecessary degeneration
Who can get adjusted?
One reason our doctors chose to utilize Torque Release Technique is it can be used on virtually anyone from children to their great-great-grandmothers. All practice member's care is personalized to their specific needs after a full evaluation and consultation.
Torque Releases Technique's Development
Dr. Kristin and Dr. Ryan are advanced proficiency certified in Torque Release Technique (TRT). TRT was developed by Dr. Jay Holder, a medical doctor and chiropractor, along with Dr. Robert Duncan, a bio-statistician at the University of Miami School of Medicine. While conducting a research study, Dr. Robert required an instrument that would allow for inter-professional reliability and effective, measurable adjustments which led to the development of the Integrator. Dr. Holder developed the chiropractic analysis combining seven adjusting techniques, and Torque Release was born!
