Here's a quick treatment of top #skiathlete Tom Gellie producing an improvement in strength in his #pistolsquat.

Not every #pdtr treatment is this simple. Knowing what to treat becomes simpler with the understanding of the body through P-DTR's education.
I'm so proud of my SF #PDTR class who just completed their last module of the series this past weekend.

I'm #grateful to have a dedicated class that not only worked hard but created many bonds with each other along the way. To be among so many forward thinking minds is an honor.

New series dates for SF coming soon!

High and low exercise intensity found to influence brain function differently - Neuroscience News

After low-intensity exercise, Rs-MRI showed that networks in the brain associated with attention were stimulated.

High-intensity exercise, networks associated with emotions were more active, and those related to fatigue & motor function, decreased.

Maybe those walking meetings are helping you be more in tune!

neurosciencenews.com Low-intensity exercise triggers brain networks associated with cognitive control and attention processing, while high-intensity exercise activates networks involved in emotional processing.

New Harvard Research: To Be Successful, Chase Your Purpose, Not Your Passion

I'm grateful.

I'm grateful to have followed my path to purpose.

At turning points, I thought I needed to veer off course to do something harder, or that (at the time) may have been more financially sound, or GET A REAL JOB - whatever that means.

I'm reminded of this often. Today's reminder struck me.

Young woman came in looking for help with chronic pain in her hip and knees. She struggled to hold back the tears from the moment we met. Her pain was real. Her frustration for result was palatable.

Several physical therapists, doctors, acupuncture, PRP - most of her attempt for relief did just the opposite.

She could barely lift her leg. Any assessment caused her to flinch with pain.

I treated her hip as needed. Relatively simple case. Upon retesting to evaluate stability - she passed with flying colors.

Then her face changed from holding back tears of pain to tears of relief. She was amazed that the movements that previously hurt now felt fine - normal.

Grateful she found me. Grateful to be able to heal in this way.

Woman diagnosed with frozen right shoulder and labral tear. First video shows limited range of motion but after 5 treatments utilizing P-DTR over the course of one month, the woman is almost completely recovered. Her orthopedic surgeon has never seen such a rapid recovery from frozen shoulder.

P-DTR is gentle, effective, and gives rapid results so you can get back to the things you love to do.

This weekend in Vancouver the professionals in my Intro class were inquisitive and engaged as we explored new ways of both assessing and treating their patients.

Itโ€™s invigorating to see the wheels turning in students heads when they start to understand whatโ€™s REALLY going on in treatment and WHY our body works the way it does.

We often get healthcare professionals looking for ways to treat their toughest cases including chronic pain patients to TBIs and concussions. Iโ€™m looking forward to helping empower a new group in Vancouver with a new series in April.

See you then.

I often challenge myself to take a different path, get out of my comfort zone, or try something new.

This past year Iโ€™ve been learning to play the piano, to throw a baseball with my non-dominant hand, and most recently learn to skateboard.

There are risks to everything and miscalculations can happen in an instant.

A little over a week ago inertia, momentum and gravity all got together for a personal teaching moment.

In my work life I treat clients for pain from injuries. This involves testing various reflexes. For example, if someone burned themself, for days or weeks they may continue to present with a withdrawal response with muscles still firing (or not) like theyโ€™re on high alert.

Iโ€™m fortunate to have practitioners that can help me get back to balance after my own sports injuries.

Wait, you ask: Can Proprioceptive DTR #pdtr treatment help with a fractured carpal bone? NO, of course not. Not specifically. Not with the hardware problem of the fracture, but definitely with the resulting โ€œsoftwareโ€ problems surrounding the fracture; ...my shoulder and elbow tension.

Proprioceptive DTR works on our software regaining appropriate responses to the world around us. It was immensely helpful in rapidly regaining function of the muscles of my elbow and shoulder that started to act up. (Shifting into first gear was near impossible).

#Grateful to have found this powerful work. Love what I do.
Itโ€™s โ€œsingle-handedlyโ€ the BEST.

Can P-DTR help get you out of pain?

One of my primary methods of treatment is P-DTR. It works directly with the nervous system. Fast and very effective.

Hereโ€™s one of our therapists, Aaron Porter in the news.

https://news.yahoo.com/amphtml/p-dtr-help-pain-232405095.html

news.yahoo.com Physical, massage and manual therapists who have studied proprioceptive deep tissue reflex or P-DTR help retrain brain to nerve receptor signals back to original settings, which in turn may help some get out of pain from injury or overuse.

Patient has limited range of motion at 135 degrees of shoulder abduction with moderate discomfort. Shoulder flexion also limited 15-20 degrees with similar discomfort level. Compress of the cervical spine improved both range and discomfort. This is a clue that most likely nociception in the spine is causing reflexive changes in the muscles of the neck and shoulder. Simple testing verifies this and the treatment is very straightforward.

Results are extremely fast. The understanding P-DTR brings to bodywork is the best there is.

Many thanks to Bryant at Perform 4 Life for inviting me to his facility today to demonstrate some of the work of #pdtr to his outstanding training staff.

Gary Cook, founder of SFMA is often quoted as saying โ€œtraining is trial by fire.โ€ Thereโ€™s truth in that and often its trainers are the first responders to a client injury.

At the demo today, I showed trainers how to perform a proper manual muscle test that they can use to assess their clients at the start of a session to make sure the clientโ€™s system is firing on all cylinders.

From there I showed them simple techniques to locate SPECIFIC areas to foam roll or stretch increase muscle recruitment to maximize their workout using neurological techniques.

Keeping it simple for maximal results.

This week in Melbourne we had a great turnout for our Intro to P-DTRยฎ. Students learned how P-DTRโ€™s research and development by orthopedic surgeon, Dr. Jose Palomar has solved many problems in traditional patient care through this noninvasive treatment approach.

In this course students had the opportunity to see and feel how the body reacts to various types of stimulus and how sensory receptors can remain over sensitive after injury or trauma.

Students also learned how to apply manual muscle testing as a diagnostic tool. Muscle testing as we use with P-DTR is not gauging how strong a muscle function is but rather a tool to evaluate reflexes of the body. In manual muscle testing we are essentially testing the myotatic stretch reflex.

Students saw firsthand that P-DTRยฎ is the only treatment method that clearly explains:

1) the rules of the nervous system,
2) gives a clear roadmap for treatment, and
3) treats the root cause of dysfunction.

We look forward our Foundation series coming to Melbourne! Course starts November 8th.

Sometimes patients have problems in a distal area because the muscles that should stabilize the proximal joint are inhibited. Knowing this and also understanding the reflexes between ligaments, joints and muscles gives one a very satisfying understanding of many clinical problems.

P-DTR is about learing normal neurology first, and then what happens when things become dysfunctional. The treatment is always logical, fast and easy.

A 5 min P-DTR treatment for a chronic pain and total weakness of the shoulder muscles.

What would you do as a chiro in this particular case? Manipulate the shoulder? Crack the neck?

What would you do as an osteo? Treat organs or cervical spine for a nerve compression?

What would you treat as a neurologist? Again, nerve compression?

What would you do as a physio? Massage? Exercises?

A very good video of Dr. Jose Palomar, where we can clearly see how the altered reflex activity in one area (scar) of the body could affect other regions and what the consequences could be.

P-DTR is a magic therapy, because rules of the neurophysiology are magical and Dr. Jose Palomar continues to discover them and converts into practical tools )))

Nociceptive patterns of weakness and tension can expand the entire body. In Module 1 of our Foundations course you learn the patterns of nociceptive withdrawal reflex (NWR) and the Pontomedullary Reticular Formation (PMRF) pattern of inhibition. With this understanding it's easy to find what needs treating and to rebalance your patient's nervous system. NO OTHER TREATMENT APPROACH does this with such precision.

"See the immediate difference in the patientโ€™s shoulder strength as I treat the nociception in his knee! Whaaaaat? Shoulder weakness due to nociception (pain receptors) in the knee??
These dysfunctions are difficult to treat with most other treatment approaches but with P-DTRยฎ itโ€™s very simple to show the nervous system how it is out of balance." Dr. Phil

This video is one of my students, Dr. Philip Runge Jr. At work using P-DTRยฎ. Heโ€™s treating a man with restricted RANGE of MOTION in cervical rotation and lateral flexion.

Dr. Phil determined the limitation was due to a NOCICEPTIVE dysfunction. What are nociceptors? They are receptors that warn the body of danger. Often the body keeps these patterns when three is no eminent danger. (Think - after a car accident or postpartum).

These dysfunctions are difficult to treat with most other treatment approaches. P-DTRยฎ shows the nervous system how and where itโ€™s out of balance and allows the body to recalibrate itself. Itโ€™s very simple.

The neurological dysfunction was causing muscles to react. HOW? By weakening certain muscles and increasing tension in other muscles to COMPENSATE. Thatโ€™s what happens when muscles arenโ€™t doing their job at 100%.

Let me know if you have questions or comments!

This is rare video of โ€œspeedy treatmentโ€. Kim and I asked Jose Palomar to do a โ€œtimed examโ€ to certify Dr Jose Palomar as the best PDTR practitioner )) We didnโ€™t do any pretests before the video, Jose didnโ€™t have an idea what was the problem beforehand. And he did pass in 24 min with a great result. So now we have a test protocol for stage 3 certification. Can someone from manual therapy practitioners repeat it? If so, you can be qualified for โ€œPDTR certificate of Clinical Excellenceโ€

It's amazing what P-DTR can do for many types of issues. I've been trained and worked with soft-tissue techniques for nerve entrapments but hands down, P-DTR's neurological assessment and treatment approach for nerve entrapments is amazing.

Check out our most recent blog post of a client that lost all motor and sensory function of her arm only days before their treatment and what a P-DTR approach resolved in 45 minutes.

Do you have numbness and tingling when you do "X"?

Or does one arm/leg/etc fatigue significantly faster than the other side of your body?

These are some signs of a peripheral nerve compression.
