Course Information
The PDTR Foundation Series provides athletic therapists with the knowledge and skills to identify and treat "software" dysfunctions, thereby complimenting the use of other manual skills, modalities, and exercise-based programming. 
P-DTR addresses musculoskeletal problems by focusing on an important, but largely overlooked apparatus of the human body: the sensory afferent system. Receptor system = “software”; Bone, muscle, ligament and tendon = “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.
Everyone knows that muscles move the body and the brain moves the muscles. Fewer are familiar with the simple fact that it’s the sensory afferent system (software) that provides the brain with the information it needs to tense and release muscles as needed for good functioning and pain-free living.
Without accurate “uncorrupted” information from the afferent system, the brain-muscle connection cannot function optimally. Breakdowns in this communication can result in chronically weak or chronically tensed muscles showing up as pain and/or difficulty with movement.
Traditional therapies— surgery, chiropractic, massage, physical therapy –do not explicitly include the afferent system in their area of focus and have no methods for identifying and addressing "software" dysfunctions. That’s why in cases where a patient has a problem at the level of the sensory receptors, surgery, tissue work (mobilizations, myofasical work, adjustments, acupuncture, etc.) or "functional" exercises and exercise-based "corrections", fail to have long-lasting changes.
Is it possible to identify "software" dysfunctions in the afferent system? Yes, with P-DTR it’s possible to do so with a high degree of precision.
Is it possible to treat dysfunctions in this system? Yes. Because of the unique nature of the brain’s relationship to the afferent system, improvements cannot only be quick, but also very long lasting and in some cases permanent. PDTR provides athletic therapists with the knowledge and skills to identify and treat "software" dysfunctions, complimenting other manual skills and exercise-based programs.
