Torque Release Technique (TRT) is a neurologically-based assessment and adjustment technique.  It is the first chiropractic technique developed for children and adults in the 21st Century.  TRT focuses on the connection points between the spinal cord and spinal column, and it reduces tension using an instrument called the Integrator. TRT detects the SOURCE of tension finding the root cause through a series of reflex checks.


The instrument utilized in TRT, the Integrator, was developed by Dr. Jay Holder.  The Integrator mimics a manual adjustment, but provides greater specificity and requires less force than an adjustment delivered by hand.

The following words have been used to describe TRT, and align with the values of Rise Chiropractic in providing quality care:

After the birthing process it is important to have your child checked by a chiropractor to determine any misalignments in the spinal column. These misalignments (aka subluxations) put undue pressure on the nervous system resulting in ailments or dis-ease.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), 32.7% of all deliveries are completed via c-section. Though this intervention can be life saving for mother and baby, this statistic shows the unfortunate reality that forceful interventions are becoming more common during today's birthing processes. The CDC states that c-section rates should not surpass 10-15% of births in any area of the world. These processes, including c-sections, forceps, and vacuum extractions, lead to unnecessary force on your child's spine and nervous system. 

In order to ensure proper growth and development for your child, chiropractic care is beneficial for reducing three specific forms of "stress" impacting your child on a daily basis:

Physical stress (Traumas)- Physical stress on the child's body and nervous system not only include the birthing processes listed above, but also include "traumas" such as falls, which occur when children learn to walk, injuries that occur while playing sports, etc.

Chemical stress (Toxins)- Chemical stress is evident everywhere in today's current environment. These stressors can negatively impact your child's nervous system by bombarding it with toxic substances. Such chemicals can be found in processed foods, household cleaning agents, prescription medications, plastics, etc.

Emotional stress (Thoughts)- Emotional stress, such as anxiety and depression, can also occur in children due to imbalanced hormone regulation. Children typically express emotional stress via physical outlets (stomach aches, headaches, diarrhea, behavioral outbursts, etc.). We need to recognize these expressions for what they are and address the root cause of the presenting symptoms.


​According to "Well-Adjusted Babies" written by Dr. Jennifer Barham-Floreani (2009), the top 10 reasons parents take their children to see a chiropractor are as follows:

  • To maximize brain and nerve development

  • To enhance overall health and well-being

  • To strengthen immunity and reduce incidences of colds, earaches, & general illnesses

  • To help with colic

  • To help with asthma, allergies, & other breathing difficulties

  • To improve spinal posture

  • To improve concentration

  • To assist with behavioral disorders

  • To alleviate bedwetting and digestive concerns

  • To assist with sleep issues


As time goes by stressors on our body add up leading to different breakdowns throughout the body, and the spine is no exception. As the spine begins to degenerate the cartilage between each vertebra becomes worn due to long-term spinal misalignment and can lead to nervous system dysfunction. 
Through regular chiropractic care seniors can help mitigate many of the symptoms commonly associated with aging and live a healthier life. Finding greater mobility allowing them to live on their own and maintain their independence. This helps keep seniors out of the nursing home and close to the people they love.
Chiropractic care for seniors provides longevity and energy by removing interference and allowing the nervous system to function at its best. Individuals under regular chiropractic care may see a lesser dependence on prescription drugs, an increase in energy, and fewer health problems. 
It is our goal at Rise Chiropractic to add years to your life and life to your years!


In regards to pregnancy, chiropractic care is most commonly known for aiding in reduction of pregnancy-associated lower back pain. However, chiropractic care is a safe and non-invasive intervention that can assist with fertility challenges, optimal pelvic alignment, overall health throughout pregnancy, and post-birth care. 

Chiropractic care is beneficial for supporting all women pre, during, and post pregnancy. According to Gray’s Anatomy, 29th ed., “The nervous system controls and coordinates all organs and structures of the human body.” Therefore, with chiropractic care assisting the mother’s body in functioning properly, an optimal environment for fetal development will also be evident. 

Chiropractic care can specifically assist with the following topics associated with pregnancy: 

Fertility challenges- Chiropractic care can assist with infertility challenges by removing nerve interferences (subluxations) that were previously decreasing communication and regulation between your brain and your reproductive and endocrine systems.

Optimal pelvic alignment- Chiropractic care can assist with pelvic alignment to allow for optimal fetal positioning. This can assist the mother in her ability to deliver naturally and non-invasively.

Maintaining an overall healthier pregnancy- Chiropractic care not only assists with structure, but also allows your nervous system to better communicate to other bodily systems. This increased communication can lead to expressing health for you and your baby via reducing nausea, regulating hormones, and encouraging proper fetal development!

Post birth care- Chiropractic care doesn't need to stop right after delivery! It continues to be beneficial for mother and baby to maintain health. At Rise Chiropractic, we pride ourselves on providing continued wellness care to create a community of healthy and happy families.
