Welcome to the world of Functional Neurology

PDTR is at the cutting edge of manual medicine.

P-DTR® is a functional neurology technique that finds and resets abnormal neurologic receptors around the body that cause pain and dysfunctional movement patterns. PDTR or P-DTR® (Proprioceptive Deep Tendon Reflex) is the original work of spinal orthopedic surgeon Dr. José Palomar. The genesis of this work originated from Dr Palomar’s in-depth studies of both AK (Applied Kinesiology) and Carrick Functional Neurology.

Dr Palomar’s research and therapy explores how proprioception (our sensation of touch, pressure, hot, cold, pain, etc.) influences the body’s neuromuscular responses and organ function. Motor function (muscle strength and coordination) is modified by how the brain receives and then processes input from these receptors. Dysfunction leads to corrupted messages from the receptor to the brain. This incorrect messaging can result from injury, surgery or trauma, and can persist long after the tissues of the injured area have healed.

P-DTR® uses a system of neural challenges and muscle testing to identify these problems and “reset” them to the body’s “factory presets,” with normal function restored. The beauty is that this process is painless and results can often be remarkably quick.

Dr Cohen completed the 120 hour Foundations couse series and is excited to share his newly refined “super-powers” of P-DTR® diagnosis and treatment with you!
