Chiropractic Care

Model of spineChiropractic stands the test of time because it produces results in a natural, safe, and effective way. The Dr. Peter Drysdale team takes a scientific approach to understanding the nervous system and its vital importance in the function of the rest of the human body.


While Dr. Peter is trained in a variety of manual adjustment techniques, he almost exclusively practices Torque Release Technique. This technique is a tonal technique that looks at the overall tension on the nervous system and uses reflexes to determine where to adjust. Utilizing a small, comfortable instrument, this approach aims to identify the underlying cause of the problem.

How Does Torque Release Technique Work?

In order for the brain and nervous system to communicate effectively, your body must maintain ideal tension on the spinal cord. Similar to a guitar string, in order to play the right note, the string must be properly taught. All too often, stresses create unwanted tension and misalignment, which prompts the body to twist and compensate. A majority of the time, the pain you feel is caused by the body’s compensation instead of the root problem itself. Torque Release Technique is a gentle, comfortable adjustment method that does not force the bone, but rather simulates the nervous system to address the issue that created a domino effect of negative results.

Is It Safe?

The Integrator adjustment tool used with Torque Release Technique is extremely gentle, uses low force and patients find the adjustments to be very comfortable and relaxing. Slight discomfort as your body is making modifications is to be expected, as shifts in the body can be deep. However, such pain is an indication that the body has been effectively encouraged to self-heal and is in the process of successfully restructuring.

Dr. Peter Drysdale is proud to provide low-risk care that produces results. Take advantage of this gentle approach to chiropractic and see how your life begins to change for the better.
