Proprioceptive-Deep Tendon Reflex (P-DTR)


Proprioceptive-Deep Tendon Reflex is a unique form of therapy that examines issues within the sensory system and how they can affect joint and muscular function as well as a host of other bodily functions.


How it Works:

All of your body's movements are dependent upon the sensory information that the nervous system receives. If you touch something sharp, you automatically withdraw from it. If you overstretch a limb, the muscles immediately relax to keep from tearing. But what if the nervous system thinks you are touching something sharp or that a ligament is on stretch when it isn’t? This will severely affect the way you move and can cause pain and a host of other bodily dysfunctions. This is what P-DTR investigates and instantly treats by utilizing its paired-receptor model and reflex treatment.


What to expect in a session:

Because P-DTR is evaluating your response to sensory information, the practitioner will use manual muscle testing in coordination to providing different types of sensory stimulation. This means you may be poked, stretched, compressed, and etc., and then muscle tested to assess for dysfunctional sensory pathways that may be contributing to your issues.


What can it help With?

Because so many of the body’s processes are dependent on sensory information, P-DTR can help with a wide spectrum of issues, including:

  • Muscle and Joint Pain
  • Low Back Pain
  • Sacroiliac Joint Dysfunction
  • Sensitivity to Light and Sound
  • Adrenal Issues
  • Thoracic Outlet Syndrome
