Torque Release Technique (TRT)
in Bellingham

activator toolTorque Release Technique (TRT) is considered the most scientific chiropractic technique in the world. The method uses a very gentle touch and low-force thrusting by hand or a small, handheld instrument called the Integrator™. This adjusting method allows the nervous system to effectively integrate and better understand the new corrective information, and to process it throughout the spinal cord and brain.

Imagine your nervous system features volume control. If the volume is too loud, distortion results, and you may experience internal organ complaints, musculoskeletal stresses and a diminished immune response.

If that response is too weak, and your body doesn’t receive critical messages, you’ll likely feel sluggish and experience reduced performance and inadequate muscle support. TRT aims to correct these problems by regulating how the nerves, spinal cord and brain function.

After each adjustment, the body is given time to process the change. Correction continues with your body’s breathing and movements. This process instructs and encourages your body to make further corrections. With subsequent visits, your healing will progress.

Conditions TRT Can Address

Here are some health concerns that may improve with TRT:

  • Anxiety
  • Back pain
  • Balance problems
  • Depression


Does this technique hurt?

No. It is a very gentle technique.

What are the primary benefits of TRT over other methods?

The first is how specific it is. Dr. Noble can target and adjust a single segment of the spine with 100 percent confidence. A second benefit is how well he can target C1 and C2 (top of the spine where the head sits on the spine). This area of the spine is very nerve-rich and needs to be adjusted with a high degree of confidence and care. “TRT allows me to be very specific in this region, which creates better outcomes,” said Dr. Noble.

Can children get adjusted with TRT?

Yes, absolutely. Dr. Noble uses this method typically on kids over the age of 3 or 4.

What’s the one thing you want patients to know about this technique?

Dr. Noble sought this technique for its ability to be very specific and purposeful in its adjustment. “I don’t adhere to the ‘just move it’ idea. I was also looking for a technique that had some science backing it up, and this one does,” he said.

How long does it take to find relief from pain or symptoms using this technique?

Various pieces are at play in the pain cycle. Dr. Noble has had patients experience pain relief in a single visit.

Are there any special certifications or training Dr. Noble has regarding this technique?

There are no certifications, but Dr. Noble has attended three seminars, with the first in 2014.

How long does this type of adjustment take?

Like the pain cycle, various components determine how long any adjustment will take. That said, most patients start to see significant changes within two weeks in many aspects of how their body is doing.
