Our Chiropractic technique – Torque Release Technique (TRT)

Chiropractic has been around for over a century, and has steadily improved for the last 110 years. There have been many new methods, techniques, knowledge and technology to this tried-and-true method of restoring proper spinal and nervous system function. Even today, the team at Vibrant Life Chiropractic continually engages ongoing education and the latest research.

The Torque Release Technique, or TRT for short, is a very popular method of chiropractic care which has proven to provide highly effective results. Here’s a look at how TRT functions and how Dr. Kurt Lang at Vibrant Life Chiropractic uses this method to the benefit of patients in the Grand Rapids, MI area.

How TRT Works 

Torque release technique is a specialized chiropractic technique that can correct small spinal misalignments (subluxated vertebrae) by gentle, non-invasive means. This supports the overall goal of chiropractic care, which is to encourage and support the body’s innate ability to adapt to its internal and external environment. This decreases the damaging effects of the chemical, physical, and emotional stress that we all experience, every single day of our lives in different amounts.  

How TRT Helps Your Spine

TRT uses minimal force in spinal adjustment, which releases tension and pressure, and enables the nervous system to communicate with the rest of the body more effectively. This communication happens from the brain, all the way down the spine, and throughout the entire body system.

TRT is designed to reduce blockages in the system, ease tension, and allow the nervous system to re-integrate with the body, vastly improving bodily function and performance. Simply, it encourages the body to heal and correct itself long-term, providing improved relief and health.

With TRT, the chiropractor gently and manually influences the spine, creating a more normalized tone to the nervous system, which is why it is also known as a tonal technique. When your spinal tone is too high, you can experience stress to your musculoskeletal system, dysfunction in the organs, and a decreased effectiveness in your immune response. When the tone is too low, you can end up with weakened muscles and a variety of aches, pain and discomfort as the nervous system fails to properly conduct electrical impulses to your body.

TRT is specifically designed to solve these neurological imbalances by helping to regulate the brain, spinal cord and nervous functions. It involves a specific assessment that allows for specific correction. The force of either a specialized instrument or hand(s) is delivered to a single segment in the spinal column at a time, allowing for the best results to be achieved.

Is TRT Safe For Kids?

Torque Release Technique is a completely safe chiropractic technique for children of all ages, whether it be an infant or teenager. Because it is so gentle, it relieves pressure, and it is exceptionally effective.

Why the Integrator Instrument?


When using an Integrator, the doctor can pinpoint the exact point on the spine that requires an adjustment. Manual adjusting lacks this degree of accuracy and specificity.


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 remove nerve interference. Breath through form a mechanistic attempt to facilitate neurological change to a system that ensures tonal change.


An adjustment utilizing the Integrator can be delivered with the spine in a perfectly relaxed, neutral position.


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


Another secret ingredient built into the Integrator is recoil. This bounce in the impulse increase the body’s response to the applied force.


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.


The benefits of Integrator adjustments have been measured by scientific research and this research has been published in major peer-reviewed medical journals.


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.


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


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.
