Chiropractic has been around for over a century, and has steadily improved for the last 110 years, adding new methods, techniques, knowledge and technology to this method of approaching whole-body health and wellness. Even today, our staff continually seeks ongoing education in the latest research regarding nervous system and spinal health.

The Torque Release Technique, or TRT, is a very popular method of chiropractic care which has proven to provide highly effective results. Here’s a look at how TRT functions and how Dr. Thor at Authority Chiropractic uses this method to the benefit of his practice members. Dr. Woerner is one of very few chiropractors to be Advanced Proficiency Certified in this technique in the San Antonio area.


The Torque Release Technique is a specialized chiropractic technique that can correct subluxation or spinal misalignments in gentle and non-invasive ways. This supports the overall goal of chiropractic care, to build on and encourage the body’s ability to naturally heal injuries and illness, and better adapt to the stresses of daily life.

With TRT, the chiropractor gently adjusts the vertebrae in the spine, creating a more normal tone to the nervous system, which is why it is also known as the tonal technique. When your spinal tone is too high, you can experience stress to your musculoskeletal system, dysfunction in the organs, and a decreased effectiveness in your immune response. When the tone is too low, you can end up with weakened muscles and a variety of aches, pain and discomfort as the nervous system fails to properly conduct electrical impulses to your body.

TRT is specifically designed to help these neurological tonal imbalances by regulating the brain, spinal cord and nervous system functions. It corrects these spinal misalignments by using a specialized adjustment instrument with highly accurate and precise movements.

TRT uses minimal force in spinal adjustment, which releases tension and pressure, and enables the nervous system to communicate with the rest of the body more effectively from the brain all the way down the spine and throughout the entire body system. In plain terms, it encourages the body to heal and correct itself in the long term, providing improved relief and function.


Torque Release Technique is a safe chiropractic technique for children of all ages, whether an infant or a child in their teen years. Because it is so gentle, it relieves pressure and it is exceptionally effective.
