P-DTR (Proprioceptive Deep Tendon Reflex)

P-DTR® is a unique and specialized approach to functional neurology and anatomy that involves testing and correcting specific nerve and muscle dysfunctions, and the way they affect how you move, function, and respond to stress.

Your nervous system transmits information about your environment to your brain via sensory nerves. Different nerves are sensitive to different stimuli like stretch, pressure, heat, cold, vibration, etc. Your brain then interprets and uses this information to make decisions about how to function and move.

Due to illness, injury, or other stresses, these sensory nerves can become dysfunctional and create bad feedback loops.   Often, this is your brain’s way of avoiding something that it has learned to interpret as somehow “dangerous,” even if it is not!  Your brain and body then create an abnormal or hypersensitive “stress response”, changing how you move and function.

This can result in decreased mobility, chronic or recurring pain, muscle tension or weakness, and injuries.  A chronically overactive stress response can also lead to fatigue, reduced immune function, and digestive problems, among other things.

We use specific neurologic and movement testing to identify and “reset” these faulty reflexes. Many people notice quick and significant improvements in strength, mobility, and pain with both acute and chronic pain.   We can then guide you towards the proper exercises, stretches, and lifestyle improvements to help you heal.

Some of the benefits of P-DTR include:

  • Finds and Corrects the problem, not just the symptoms
  • Accelerates recovery from acute injuries
  • Eliminates lingering dysfunction and pain from chronic injuries
  • Eliminates the debilitating effects of repetitive stress
  • Optimizes athletic performance
  • Restores muscle function and coordination quickly
  • Increases range of motion, strength and stamina
  • Achieves quick, long-lasting results
  • Maximizes stability and balance throughout the entire body
  • Improves your brain and body's ability to adapt to stress
  • Resolves problems you thought you’d “just have to live with”
