Torque Release Technique Adjustment
What is the difference between the Integrator and the activator?
The Integrator reproduces the entire thrust and movement components of TOGGLE RECOIL, the classic Chiropractic Method of adjusting by hand at a speed of 1/10,000th of a second. The Integrator has true force adjustment as well as choice of three tip sizes, shapes and density characteristics to allow for the chiropractor the greatest outcome in correcting almost any subluxation that can present itself.
The Activator Method is a “low force” technique, which utilizes light, yet extremely fast thrust. Because of its “low force” the Activator Method can be used on all types of patients, ranging from pregnant women, babies, and children, to athletes.
What is involved with a Torque Release Technique Adjustment?
Dr. Montilla will be checking your spinal column for areas where the nervous system is being damaged by subluxation and will deliver an adjustment using the Integrator instrument. It makes a clicking noise and will feel like a quick impulse into the muscles of your spinal column.
This reproduces what the hands were intended to do with much more specificity and less force than ever possible by hand. The Integrator delivers a specific frequency into the nerve endings of the spinal column, exactly where nerve function has become irritated.
A “jump start” for your body’s “electrical system”.
As such this is not so much a technique to manually stretch or realign your body. It is a technique to stimulate your nervous system in such a way that it will release and reduce tension, assisting your body to self-correct.
The Integrator instrument, fondly known as the “Endorphin Gun”, is a tool that was designed and built to reproduce what the hands intend to achieve during an adjustment. Originally it was manufactured for use in research only, but the advantages and benefits achieved when the results were measured lead to overwhelming demand for its use in private practice.
An Integrator adjustment is:
PRECISE: When using an Integrator we can pinpoint the exact point on the spine that requires adjustment of nerve frequency.
SPECIFIC: 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 normalise nerve function.
GENTLE: An Integrator adjustment can be delivered with the spine in a perfectly relaxed position with the perfect amount of force, whereas a traditional adjustment requires the spine to be stretched to a position of tension followed by the manual thrust by hand to sufficiently open the spinal joints to activate a nerve response.
FAST: Because the Integrator has such a fast impulse and because we can adjust you in a perfectly relaxed position, a TRT adjustment can be extremely time efficient but still dramatically effective.
EFFECTIVE: The benefits of Integrator adjustments have been measured by scientific research and this research has been published in major peer-reviewed medical journals.
RELIABLE: 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.
CONSISTENT: The systems that are used in TRT and the features of the Integrator are very standardized which means that several practitioners using the same method can deliver the same results and experience.
Scientifically speaking, your spinal cord is a thick string of piezoelectric gel (electricity conducting jelly). The frequency it is working at is determined by the amount of tension and/or torsion being placed at either end of the “string”. Just like a guitar string, the tightness of the cord determines the tune that is being played.
TRT differs from many of the other chiropractic techniques in that it focuses a lot of attention to the “tuning pegs”: the strategic and vital connection points between the spinal cord and spinal column. As we gently and methodically adjust these areas of your spinal cord, we are changing the degree of tension in the central nervous system.
Hence, the skill of the chiropractor is to be able to tune your spinal cord to find some more beautiful notes – that is, a better level of tension.
When many people stand up after an adjustment, they notice that their vision seems clearer, the light or view seems sharper, their head feels lighter, their body feels looser etc. These are all reflections of your central nervous system operating at a better frequency. The Integrator is the high-tech tool that we use to tune your nervous system.
