Had multiple sessions with Carl for both longstanding knee instability, pain, and weakness, as well as treatment for recurring shoulder dislocations.As a healthcare professional myself, I respect the P-DTR techniques that Carl uses so expertly, and found significant relief after my sessions.Not only does my knee still feel strong with my muscles working more efficiently, but I have no more pain or issues in my shoulder either. Carl's skills in P-DTR are more effective than any treatment I've received in the past 15 years, and that says a lot! Thanks Carl!

Neurological Bodywork Treatment
Proprioceptive Deep Tendon Reflex therapy (P-DTR) is a neuromusculoskeletal therapy that treats physical dysfunction resulting from trauma or illness on a neurological level. The treatment addresses residual pain or dysfunction that often persists after tissue has healed. A P-DTR practitioner assesses an individual’s proprioception surrounding a dysfunction by observing muscle facilitation and inhibition. Once the areas of dysfunction are identified, treatment involves the stimulation of the nerve endings in the tissue along with the deep tendon reflex to return the electrical activity of the proprioceptors to their normal levels. The assessment and treatment is non-invasive and individuals often notice immediate change during treatment or within 24 hours. P-DTR treatment is effective in addressing many conditions including chronic pain, lower back pain, headaches, tendonitis, sciatica, chondromalacia patellae, adhesive capsulitis, post-operative pain, TMJ disorder, and digestive disorders.
