What is P-DTR

P-DTR addresses musculoskeletal problems by focusing on an important, but largely overlooked apparatus of the human body: the mechanoreceptor system.

Think of the receptor system as “software” and bone, muscle, ligament and tendon as “hardware.” As with computers, hardware problems are best addressed at the level of the hardware, but when the problem is at the level of the software, no amount of work on the hardware can fix the problem.

The main goal for P-DTR practitioners is to solve any "software" issues to correct or lessen the "hardware" malfunctions.


This course has a curriculum designed to introduce students to functional neurology. Students can expect to learn how to improve the raw material the brain receives to make more accurate decisions about how to move and feel.

The Intermediate course takes on from where the Foundation ended. Students can expect to learn much more about how the body structures larger patterns of dysfunctions and how each piece of the pattern can affect another.

The advanced series takes students on a thorough exploration of the physiology of numerous body systems. Students will learn about iliocecal valve conditions, issues with energy production and essential fatty acid metabolism malfunctions.
