Proprioceptive Deep Tendon Reflex (P-DTR) is a system of therapy created by Dr. Jos Palomar. His discoveries indicate that proprioception, how the body processes hot, cold, pressure, pain, etc., is a significant clue regarding neuromuscular responses. It is his methodology that the body’s motor functions are modified based on these sensations.
The body discerns its best movement and motor response based on a wide variety of factors. These proprioceptive responses help the brain tell muscles how to respond. However, if the information the brain receives is incorrect, its response will be faulty and result in potential pain or dysfunction. My skill in P-DTR aims to repair these faulty connections through a use of muscle tests and the stimulation of deep tendon reflexes. By re-forging a connection of healthy proprioceptive responses, the brain will be better equipped to deal with pain management and proper motor function.
Here are just a few benefits from receiving P-DTR
- Increased mobility
- Accelerated injury recovery
- Improved muscle coordination
- Long-term benefits
- Increased overall balance & well-being
- Improved performance for athletes
- Relieves stress from routine repetition
