Why Should You Try a Torque Release Technique Chiropractor?

Many of our patients have sustained injuries that cause them pain or some other health issues that over time interfere with their daily activities of living or working. Recovery is often elusive.

Patients go from doctor to doctor looking for solutions with these problems. They are often given a diagnosis but cannot find the relief they desire. Most of these issues are traditionally treated with medication after medication that has little to know success treating the issue and his very costly.

Torque Release offers hope for these issues. Torque Release Technique is a chiropractic technique that combines the best techniques available in chiropractic into one integrative 21st century technique.

TRT has no twisting, cracking, or popping that traditional chiropractic does yet offers gentle and specific adjustments that target influential segments of the spine to correct any nerve interference.  The goal of TRT is to remove any subluxations(misalignments) in the spine to allow the nervous system to function at 100%.

When the nervous system is allowed to function at optimal levels the body can heal itself naturally and effectively. Traditionally chiropractors are associated with neck and back pain. Due to the attention and precision TRT gives to the spine and spinal cord, the effects of this technique are much further reaching than just pain.


Dr. Mark Petro knows what it is like to experience dead ends from specialists

Mark faced his own health crisis when he was studying to be a chiropractor. In 2012 I came down with some alarming neurological issues that had no clear cause. I had a buzzing in my chest, heart palpitations, numbness/tingling, food sensitivity, vision issues, no appetite, sleep problems, fatigue and lightheadedness.

These symptoms came on quite fast and lasted four months and were constant everyday. These issues interfered with many of my daily activities. I went to neurologist and cardiologist and had every test done to determine what was going on.

No answers were found and so they defaulted to it being an anxiety or gastric reflux issue and wanted to place me on a drug regimen. Not only was I given answers I didn’t agree with but I was given a prescription and that was the end of the hope I had for correcting this issue.

I had seen a neurologist, cardiologist, numerous physicians, a few ER visits and other chiropractors with no improvement. My previous experience with chiropractors were while playing football in college and the NFL with different sports ailments and injuries. Then I was directed to Torque Release Technique for my issues and I began to feel improvement for the first time in four months.

Once I felt that improvement, I never looked back and within six months I was back to normal and all my symptoms went away. Torque Release gave me hope when I had none and allowed my body to heal itself naturally when I could find answers nowhere else.

That is why I am so passionate and confident in this technique and want to spread this wonderful healing power of the human body with others.

Why Dr. Mark Petro chose Torque Release Technique for his own recovery

Torque Release Technique was one of the first techniques that I heard about when I arrived at school. It wasn’t until I went through my health issues that I decided to look further into it when nothing else was able to help me with the health issues I was going through.

What makes Torque Release Technique so effective is that it combines many of the traditional chiropractic techniques into one integrative 21st century technique. TRT combines Sacral Occipital Technique, Toftness D.N.F.T., Thompson, Logan, Palmer Upper Cervical, and Network Spinal Analysis. The integration of all these techniques and the unique instrument “The Integrator” that delivers the adjustment offers a “best of the best” technique to adjust the spine.

The integrator is the only chiropractic adjusting instrument that was developed out of a randomized clinical trial, blinded and with placebo control. The study was designed by Robert Duncan, Ph.D., biostatistician, at the University of Miami School of Medicine. Years of development, testing, and design went into creating an instrument that would deliver that 3rd dimensional dynamic adjustment.

What makes the Integrator so great is its reproducibility of adjustments. Each adjustment is delivered at 1/10,000th of a second to the exact point of the spine that requires adjustment of nerve frequency.

An integrator adjustment can be delivered with the spine in a perfectly relaxed neutral position with the perfect amount of force. The reliability and consistency of adjustments is what makes Torque Release Technique so effective.  I found that I had could get fantastic results with a wide range of issues immediately.

Dr. Mark Petro’s Journey to Restored Health Using Torque Release Technique

Torque Release Technique changed my life when I had my health crisis. The amount of improvement I had was unbelievable I had never thought I would feel normal again but TRT surpassed my expectations.    The results made me decide to specialize only as a Torque Release Technique Chiropractor.

Usually TRT results don’t happened over night. It is quite normal for patients to feel improvement as early as the first week but some patients take longer to feel the effects based on each individuals health history.  Please contact me to schedule an appointment to see if Torque Release Technique is right for you.


My total recovery took approximately a year but I can’t put into words how amazing it was at the end to feel normal again. To be able to share that improvement and hope with others is a true blessing. Patients should go into care with the expectation that it will take time to make the necessary corrections to the spine but every day will be an improvement.


Care plans are designed with an end in sight this technique does not require visits forever but adhering to the care plan consistently makes all the difference. In Atlanta, Georgia where I spent two years in clinics utilizing Torque Release Technique my patient list grew quickly from the referrals of patients that couldn’t believe how much better they felt with a wide range of issues from migraines, numbness/tingling, painful cramps for women, and spasms just to name a few.

My goal was always to come home to Cleveland to give back to the city I grew up in and want to stay in and I am excited to help many with Torque Release Technique.

What if you don’t have a spine related problem can Torque Release Technique help?

The brain is the control center of the body and nervous system. Signals are sent from the brain through the spinal cord to every muscle, tissue, organ, and system of the body. The nerves that run from the brain to every part of the body carry billions of nerve tracts and only 10% of the those tracts represent pain. The rest of those tracts represent function of muscles, tissues, organs etc.

All those nerves travel from above-down through the spine before branching out into the body. The common misconception is that chiropractic can only help with back pain but our goal is much further reaching than that.

A great analogy is that of a kink in a hose. If you try to water your garden with a kink in the hose the water cannot get from the source through the hose to the garden unimpeded.  This results in less growth and healing of the garden. Same concept with the body when the nerves are impinged by subluxations in the spine the correct signal from the brain to the rest of the body is impeded and results in pain or dysfunction.


Our purpose is to identify if the problem can be traced back to misalignments (subluxations) in the spine and if they are we know that correcting the source of the issue will help immensely to allow whatever dysfunction out of the spine to heal more appropriately.

What if you have tried traditional chiropractors with no improvement?

Chiropractic has been around for over 100 years. Many of the traditional manual adjusting techniques are effective with the right doctor.

Torque Release is the future of chiropractic and its effectiveness and specificity allow success where some techniques fall short. The incredible specificity of Torque Release is what separates it from other techniques and its gentle adjusting is favorable to some who are incapable of being adjusted by traditional chiropractic techniques.

Some patients do not like to have their neck twisted, cracked or popped or they are too fragile to have that kind of force exerted on them. Torque Release offers the solution with its gentle but specific adjustments that require no uncomfortable positions or rough adjustments.

Torque Release is not only great for patients who have found no success with other chiropractors but its great for patients that have been unable to find healing anywhere else across the health spectrum.
