Proprioceptive Deep Tendon Reflex P-DTR® Toronto

What is Proprioceptive Deep Tendon Reflex? (P-DTR®)
Most traditional musculoskeletal treatments focus on your body’s hardware system — joints, muscles, bones, ligaments, etc.; however, P-DTR® is a system that combines neurology, biomechanics, neurophysiology, and anatomy to look at your body’s software system. Jose Palomar, an orthopedic surgeon, developed p-DTR® to help understand information from the body’s sensory receptors and motor responses.

Input to Output

P-DTR® is a functional view of the neurological system that focuses on how and what your brain receives in terms of input (information) from all the sensory receptors in your body. Injury, trauma, or even bad habits can disrupt these inputs, leading to chronic pain, discomfort, or dysfunction (output) — even while your body’s mechanics may be in perfect condition. P-DTR® focuses on correcting these inputs or stimuli, cleansing these “communication pathways,” and allowing the body to function optimally.

Physiotherapists, Chiropractors, Massage Therapists and Osteopaths at Pure Motion Centre utilize P-DTR® to help understand the root cause of the issue. They use a series of precise manual muscle tests and stimuli to the body, including vibration, stretch, pressure, scratch, and sharp, to stimulate sensory receptors and understand the motor response and help to alleviate pain and dysfunction.
