What Is P-DTR Therapy?
P-DTR stands for Proprioceptive Deep Tendon Reflex. P-DTR was developed by Orthopedic surgeon Jose Palomar MD. He is a pioneer in the research and development of diagnostic technology and therapeutic interventions for the resolution of receptor dysfunctions.
Proprioceptive – Deep Tendon Reflex (P-DTR) is the name of his therapy method used to address and treat receptor dysfunctions. I have spent the last 2 years studying with Dr. Palomar to learn this method and treatment solutions. I use this and other modalities to reinforce neuromuscular changes in the body. It is the most amazing life changing therapy that has given people with pain, injury, trauma, and emotional issues the ability to return to normal tasks without pain, medication or surgery in many cases. Dr. Palomar has been teaching his method in the USA for the past five years. Recently he has allowed two students to teach additional classes so that more people can be educated and begin using his treatment to help people heal. Currently classes are being offered in England, Australia, Poland, Russia, California, Florida and Chicago. In addition to treating people at my Studio since taking this training, I have been educating people about neuroscience and the incredible power the brain and these receptors have over our bodies. Evaluating these receptors can provide critical information to provide solutions to heal injuries by identifying these dysfunctional receptors and correcting them. I have been called a neural hacker, neuro Ninja and magic worker. What exactly does this method test and evaluate? In our body there are all different kinds of receptors and sensors that send messages to the brain telling it the position of the arms, legs, feet hands and head, where your body is in space and what you are standing on, Is it soft, hard, hot or cold. Is there a smell in the air? Is your arm by your side? Is it angled or reaching for something? It also tells your body what it senses. Does it sense something cold? Hot? Is there pressure on your arm? Is there something painful poking you? If this information is incorrect, as is often the case, the brain is making its decisions based on bad information. Pain and dysfunction frequently result.
P-DTR is a method that identifies dysfunctional receptors that are giving information to the brain and resets them similar to rebooting a computer. Some of these dysfunctional receptors could be sending pain signals to your brain when there is actually no pain, threat or danger to your body. PDTR can reset this receptors and eliminate pain in the body and restore alignment to dysfunctional structures in the body similar to a chiropractic adjustment without any form of manual manipulation. Changes to the dysfunctional receptors can eliminate short term pain or a chronic issue like lower back pain, migraines, frozen shoulder, knee and hip pain.
How are the sensor identified? Using a comprehensive system of muscle testing and neural challenges, involved receptors can be located and normal function can be quickly restored. Most physical therapy and other therapeutic modalities deal with the “hardware” of the body, neglecting the fact that much of the pain and dysfunction we experience is often actually a problem with our “software”. P-DTR specifically targets those dysfunctional receptors by identifying where they are in the body through scientific testing developed by Dr. Jose Palomar. By using simple muscle testing and neural challenges, we can determine which pain receptors are dysfunctional and essentially reset them to make immediate and lasting advances toward restored function. Then, the next time they sense an injury or are stimulated, they are able to send appropriate messages to the brain. This technique is highly effective and can help people heal from pain and dysfunction anywhere in their body.
Neuromuscular dysfunctions exist for neurologic reasons and not because of some inherent quality within the muscle itself. This is not to say that tissue damage is not a real entity, but such damage resolves itself in a question of days whereas the neurologic components can persist indefinitely.” Dr. Jose Palomar
