Primal Reflex Release Technique
The Primal Reflex Release Technique™ is a manual-therapy approach for evaluating and relieving musculoskeletal pain. PRRT is often able to accomplish in just seconds what joint mobilization and manipulation, trigger point therapy, and soft tissue and myofascial release can do over time.
PRRT has been found effective in more than 80% of patients with painful conditions. Reflexes – startle, withdrawal, and the protective joint reflexes – are hardwired into the nervous system of the body for the purpose of survival. When a person experiences a painful or startling event, these reflexes are triggered in an attempt to protect the body.
Unfortunately, these reflexes often persist in a state of hyper-readiness long after the triggering event has passed. When sustained over time, activated reflex responses lead to patterns of pain that are reproduced, repeated, and maintained, interfering with healing and resisting therapeutic efforts to restore natural function.
We at Redden Total Therapy have trained in this concept and having been using these techniques and evaluation for 6 years with positive results. We use this knowledge as part of our overall evaluation and treatment program to help quickly relieve your pain and teach you tools to help maintain pain relief through a home exercise program.
