What is PRRT?
Primal Reflex Release Technique, fondly called "pert", is a treatment technique that rapidly reduces pain. A trained practitioner may be a chiropractor, physical therapist, occupational therapist, osteopath, athletic trainer or massage therapist by license. To bring all of these professions together for a seminar there MUST be something unique about Primal Reflex Release Technique (PRRT)!
PRRT teaches a treatment philosophy and reflexive understanding of the nervous system to eliminate pain. PRRT also evaluates how an old pain reflex in the foot can get "trapped" and create a compensation in the sacrum and head. Truly, PRRT practitioners treat the whole body and understand how to find underlying causes of pain.
Many patients remark, "I didn't know that hurt" and "how did you know that was the spot?" PRRT practitioners are trained to observe pain patterns, compensations, and restrictions. This leads us to "the spot" and lends insight on how to best treat our patients and clients. As a patient you can expect to be "poked" as the palpation of the PRRT exam presses on areas that indicate neurological irritation or up-regulation. The positions used during a PRRT treatment are unique as your nervous system is accessed to release pain patterning. When in the treatment position your PRRT Practitioner will tap or flick you to elicit a reflex response. Once you experience therapy or chiropractic with the addition of PRRT, you won't want to go back. It is very common to experience an endogenous opioid release when the pain pattern is released. This means you should wait before driving and enjoy the light, floaty feeling of having pain eliminated at reflex speed.
