Proprioceptive Deep Tendon Reflex (P-DTR)

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.

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 cause disruption to these inputs which can lead 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, cleansing these “communication pathways”, and allowing the body to function optimally.

Will P-DTR help me?

Benefits of P-DTR may include: reducing acute or chronic pain quickly, increased range of motion, strength and stamina and optimize athletic performance.  We have used P-DTR to help patients with concussions, post-operative rehabilitation, headaches, dizziness, tinnitus, neck pain, back pain, rehabilitation from sports injuries.
