I believe current wormhole theory allows the following method of time travel:
The obvious consequence is that a wormhole allows for time travel, but only through the span of time in which the wormhole exists. So if you create one, you are issuing an open-ended invitation for visitors from the future.
I'll be very interested to see if this actually works in practice.
