Chiropractic has never had a scientific model that represents subluxation-centered chiropractic. A model that explained the subluxation for the true role it plays. With chiropractic having entered its second century, it is essential that a truly up-to-date, functional, vitalistic, scientific model go along with it. THAT IS OUR MISSION!
There have been endless definitions of the subluxation. Many pioneers have attempted to develop techniques to diagnose, locate and correct subluxations. Although much greatness has come chiropractic’s had been left with mechanistic and/or linear protocols that have stood in the way of chiropractic’s true potential.
In 1994, the Holder Research Institute discovered1 that only vertebrates have opiate receptor site brain reward, establishing the vertebral subluxation complex as the hallmark of insult of the vertebrate’s ability to express a state of well-being to its fullest potential.
“The Brain Reward Cascade” is a scientific model2 that provides an understanding of the neurophysiological mechanisms of how the meso-limbic system expresses a state of well-being. A lack of state of well-being is referred to as Reward Deficiency Syndrome (RDS). The vertebral motor unit and the dorsal horn3 are the common denominators. Due to its intimate relationship to the “The Brain Reward Cascade”, a subluxation-free spine becomes mandatory for the expression of one’s greatest potential. If subluxated, reward Deficiency Syndrome is manifest4.
“The transition from the mechanistic model of disease versus health, in which we have been stuck for so many years, to a vitalistic model of wellness can be the hallmark of the coming millennium.
Torque Release Technique® was developed out of respect for non-mechanistic, non-linear timed sequence adjusting priorities and embraces The Brain Reward Cascade model5.
Utilizing The Integrator™, a torque and recoil release adjusting instrument combines the best of existing chiropractic techniques and principles, quantum physics and the body/mind connection. Creating the first integrated chiropractic system for the second century of chiropractic.
Torque Release Technique® is a model that utilizes the multi-factorial approaches pioneered in the following techniques:
- Thomson Terminal Point
- Van Rumpt, D.N.F.T.
- DeJarnette, S.O.T.
- Logan Basic
- Palmer Upper Cervical
- Network Chiropractic Spinal Analysis
Torque Release Technique® is non-mechanistic and non-linear. Torque Release Technique® utilizes neurologically-based analysis that incorporates non-linear time sequence adjusting priorities.
The Integrator™ automatically discharges when a predetermined contact pressure is reached, allowing for true inter-professional reproducibility, and signaling the chiropractor that a specific adjustment has been delivered. The Integrator™ is the only hand-held instrument with adjustable left and right “TORQUE” capability as well as “RECOIL” and true adjustment of force, and unlike most other instruments available, is legally marketed in the U.S. Few have FDA approval!
Out of the largest human population research study in chiropractic history comes the Integrator™.
The Integrator™ is the only chiropractic adjusting instrument that was developed out of randomized clinical trial, blinded and with placebo control. The study was designed by Robert Duncan, Ph. D., bio-statistician, at the University of Miami School of Medicine, together with the Holder Research Institute and founded in part by a grant from the Florida Chiropractic Society. Years of development, testing and design went into creating an instrument that would deliver that 3rd dimensional dynamic that adjusting by hand embraced but that no other instrument in chiropractic delivered; “TORQUE” and “RECOIL”. 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.
No instrument in chiropractic history has been able to reproduce what the hands were intended to do! Many other features are built into the Integrator however the precocking/tip sensitive automatic release mechanism makes the Integrator the first and only chiropractic adjusting instrument capable of totally true inter-professional reproducibility. This instrument, also known as the Torque Adjustor™ is unlike other hand held instruments. 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 Integrator™ is a legally marketed instrument in the United States. Few have FDA approval!
