PRRT (pronounced “pert”), is a manual-therapy approach for musculoskeletal pain relief. Proven effective in over 80% of patients, PRRT accomplishes in seconds what other therapies can only accomplish over time. PRRT is based on the premise that over-stimulation of the body’s primal reflexes creates pain and keeps a painful pattern occurring long after the triggering event has passed.
This drug-free and non-invasive treatment is beneficial for motor vehicle accidents, PTSD, and other trauma when the fight or flight response has been overstimulated. It is also beneficial for musculoskeletal pain, fibromyalgia, chronic pain, post surgeries, neck, and back pain. In addition, it will give the patient self-treatment tools long after therapy.
