What is P-DTR?

P-DTR (Proprioceptive Deep Tendon Reflex) is used to diagnose and treat the cause of your physical or mental problems. P-DTR is a new and different form of treatment - It is functional neurology. This means that the nervous system is stimulated, just as you do in your daily life and the response from the nervous system is used in the treatment.

New things are always difficult to understand, but below we give an introduction to the treatment.

The brain and nervous system

Our brain controls our body based on signals from the receptors (nerve endings) throughout the body. The division of labor of the brain is to receive, assess and respond to input from all the receptors in the body, hold it up against previous experience and then give e.g. a motor output on this basis. This is called in everyday speech our nervous system.

Imbalances in the nervous system

Imagine that there is an imbalance in the receptors so that the brain gets the wrong inputs. This can result in an increased tension in the muscles, which can pull crookedly in a joint or create a greater imbalance in the body.

The treatment

We treat the receptors in the body that are out of balance and thereby the cause of your pain. There are no cracks or violent movements in the treatment. When using muscle tests, the cause of your problem is found gently and effectively and most people experience an improvement within 1-3 treatments.

Before treatment, it is important that you think and write down what injuries and defects your body has been exposed to. Please read “Preparations for the first treatment”.

The longer explanation

P-DTR stands for Proprioceptive Deep Tendon Reflex. Proprioception translates to: “Joint positions sense, is a sense that informs the brain about the position of the individual body parts in space. Signals from sensory bodies in the tendons, joints, muscles and skin are analyzed in the cerebellum and the large brain for a conscious picture of the body's spacious position. "

In the body, there are free nerve endings (receptors) that register what is happening inside and outside the body. They can be divided into pain, mechano and chemoreceptors. When you e.g. touching the hot hob, a sharp and precise pain is experienced. Your body will reflexively, move away from the pain. Shortly after, you will experience a more soothing and diffuse pain in the area. These are two different pain receptors from which the brain receives signals. The signals are used to protect you, but can get out of balance and send too many signals. Imbalance in a receptor can come from a sprained ankle, an operation, a traffic accident or something less dramatic. It may have happened many years ago and your brain has been able to compensate for it, which is why you have not noticed anything about it. At some point, there can be too many imbalances, the brain can no longer compensate and you get pain.

P-DTR´s grundlægger

Dr. Jose Palomar MD / Specialist Orthopedic Spinal Surgeon and teacher of Applied Kinesiology lives in Guadalajara, Mexico is the founder of P-DTR. He lacked effect in his clients both in surgery and kinesiology. He began with his knowledge of the nervous system and muscle testing, examining responses in the body by stimuli to the various receptors. For the past 20 years, he has dedicated his life to finding cause and context in our nervous system and putting it into structure. He now teaches the courses himself and has a few teachers who also have a doctorate, so the quality of the teaching is maintained.


The effect of P-DTR is currently being researched. When there are results, these will be announced online.
