Immediate Neurological Improvement Following Subluxation Based Chiropractic Care Using Torque Release Technique


Brandon Mahaffy, DC Bio


Annals of Vertebral Subluxation Research ~ September 17, 2012 ~ Pages 88-93



Objective:  To measure the immediate neurological effects of subluxation based chiropractic care.


Clinical Features:  A 26-year-old male patient was evaluated with thermal instrumentation before and after vertebral subluxations were detected and adjusted.


Intervention and Outcomes:  Torque Release Technique® protocol was utilized for both evaluation and application of care.  Low-force adjustments were performed with an FDA approved instrument (the Integrator) for reducing vertebral subluxations.  Changes were measured with spinal thermography.


Conclusions:  After applying subluxation based chiropractic via Torque Release Technique®, the patient showed immediate improvement in neurological function. These results were measured with pre- and post- adjustment thermal scans. The decreased asymmetry in thermal readings demonstrates that reducing subluxations may immediately improve neurological function.
