What is the Primal Reflex Release Technique™ (PRRT)?

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.

Primal Reflex Release Technique

In today’s noisy and hectic world, our bodies have become hyper-stimulated. As a result, multiple areas of the body respond involuntarily to stress stimuli-without us even being aware of it. This phenomenon is called the Startle Stress Reflex (SSR), is a conditioned reflex. There is evidence of this reflex present in Gulf War veterans and women who have been assaulted. With everyday conditioning by SSR in our daily hyper-stimulated lives, the protective reflexes have the potential for the pain a patient feels.

During our exam, we lightly touch about a dozen areas that cause the patient to jump or pull away. These areas have protective reflexes, and the goal of PRRT is to return them to their normal state. With our rapid resets of the hyper-stimulated areas, most patients report a 50 percent decrease in pain after just one visit and a similar improvement in ease of motion. Their smiles light up the room and they are astonished by their newfound joy of movement. Drug-free pain relief can be a reality with PRRT!
