P-DTR (Proprioceptive Deep Tendon Reflex)

P-DTR Logo


P-DTR is unlike anything you’ve ever experienced.  It is best described as ‘Human Electrical Engineering’ or ‘brain hacking’.  It’s a comprehensive form of neuromuscular reorganization utilizing information received from sensory receptors (pain, pressure, hot, cold, etc) to rewire the brain for optimal movement patterning; effectively reducing pain while increasing ROM, strength, and stamina.  Orthopedic surgeon Jose Palomar MD is a pioneer in the research and development of diagnostic technology and therapeutic interventions for the resolution of receptor dysfunctions and sole creator of P-DTR.  Traditional therapies like Massage Therapy, Physical Therapy, Chiropractic, Orthopedic Surgery focus on what we refer to as ‘hardware’ issues.  P-DTR addresses ‘software’ issues in a unique way that you will not find with any other technique.   The brain controls the body’s ‘hardware’, P-DTR is one of the tools we use to reprogram the brain.  Using manual muscle testing and specific neural challenges to target those receptors, Dr. Barnes can find out why these inefficiencies are occurring. P-DTR focuses on finding the problem, not treating the symptoms.  Corrections are incredibly quick and extremely effective.  Results are long lasting and in some cases permanently resolved.
