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 receptors - "proprioceptors" and "nociceptors" - of your body and the way they affect your movement, function, and responses to stress.

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

Illness, injury, or other types of stress may trigger your nervous system to interpret a common, normally non-harmful stimulus as “dangerous, ” causing your brain and body to react and adapt accordingly.  This can result in decreased mobility, chronic or recurring pain, muscle tension or weakness, and injuries.

We use specific nerve and muscle function testing to identify dysfunctional nerve input and output - where the “short circuit” is. We then combine stimulation of reflexes to “reset” these faulty circuits, leading to improved function and decreased pain in both acute and chronic problems.

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”

Dr. Morrone is one of only two practitioners in the state of Maryland trained and certified in this technique.
