What Is PDTR Therapy?

P-DTR therapy or Proprioceptive Deep Tendon Reflex is a system that identifies and treats dysfunctional muscles, sensory nerve pathways and receptors.

What Are The Origins Of PDTR Therapy?

P-DTR therapy is the brainchild of Dr. Jose Palomar, a Consultant Neurologist from Mexico.

How Does P-DTR Therapy Work?

PDTR therapy utilizes Applied Kinesiology (AK) or muscle response testing to identify dysfunctional muscles and associated sensory pathways and nerve endings. Using the stimulation of deep tendon reflexes, your Ottawa P-DTR therapy practitioner can correct the dysfunctional muscles, pathways and receptors.

What To Expect During An Initial Visit With Our Ottawa P-DTR therapy Practitioner?

An initial visit with our Ottawa PDTR practitioner therapy is 60 minutes long and consists of three parts: case history, physical examination and treatment.

  • In the case history part, our practitioner will take an extensive medical history with particular emphasis on any past physical trauma.
  • The physical examination will include some orthopaedic medical testing as well as extensive muscle function testing.
  • Treatment will comprise the identification and correction of dysfunctional sensory nerve pathways and receptors.

The amount of treatment during the initial visit will depend on how much time is required for the case history and physical examination

What To Expect During A Follow Up Visit?

A follow-up visit is usually 30 minutes long but may be up to 60 minutes. You practitioner will advise you on how much time to book.

The majority of the time during a follow visit will be taken up by treatment.

How Many Visits Will I Need?

The number of visits you will require is very much dependent on the individual and their presenting symptoms, however, on average you should expect to come for 6-8 visits.

You should see some improvement by the 4th visit.
