Re-Organise Your Nervous System
P-DTR® is a unique therapeutic method that has been created by Dr. Jose Palomar MD / Specialist Orthopaedic Spinal & Trauma Surgeon , who hails from Guadalajara in Mexico. P-DTR® focuses on the sensory nerve endings located all over our bodies that are called receptors. These nerve endings are the initial source of information that is used within your nervous system for your brain to make sense of the world around you. P-DTR® works on the Paired Receptor Theory which has recently been proven by scientific research that was carried out. P-DTR® enables Paula to understand how your nervous system compensates for dysfunction when it arises.
P-DTR® allows Paula to assess the information your brain is receiving from an area of your body and to find out if that information is accurate or not. Why does this matter?
If your brain is receiving accurate information from the ligaments, muscles and tendons in your body, you will have an appropriate muscular response. If the information is sensitised (too sensitive or not sensitive enough) it will lead to too much or too little muscular responses.
Why does the muscular response matter?
In an ideal world, all muscles will function properly providing support for the joints that they act on. If a muscle is decreased in function, then it may predispose you to further injury. Very often, even if you haven't actually caused ourselves further injury, the potential for that to happen may be interpreted as a threat, which may in turn lead to you experiencing pain.
This becomes important when Paula works with people who have chronic pain and symptoms. She often finds that these people have areas of sensitisation from old injuries that are contributing to their current chronic problems.
Most therapists focus on the areas of pain, yet in Paula's experience, she finds most of the solutions to these painful areas are located in the previous areas of injury. P-DTR® allows Paula to piece together each client presentation from a whole person, whole story perspective to find the solution to their symptoms.
