Torque Release Technique is based on the understanding that all chiropractic techniques work. All first-century chiropractic techniques are linear and mechanistic with few embracing a tonal model, says Dr. Holder. Torque Release Technique is a subluxation based, non-linear, vitalistic, tonal model that can be adapted to any first-century chiropractic technique as a 'computer upgrade.' The advantages to upgrading any first-century full-spine or upper cervical chiropractic technique through such a model are limitless. However, the main advantages include increasing treatment outcomes, patient satisfaction and prevention of 'patient plateau'.
