Understanding Shoulder Movement Complexities
The shoulder is one of the most intricate joints in the human body, facilitating a wide range of movements. However, this complexity also makes it susceptible to various issues, particularly in shoulder abduction – a movement involving the coordination of the humerus, scapula, and clavicle, and engaging numerous muscles and ligaments.
A Challenging Case of Restricted Shoulder Motion
Recently, we encountered a client facing a significant loss of shoulder range of motion. This condition, which had a sudden onset, progressively worsened over time. By the time she sought our help, her shoulder flexion and abduction were limited to about 90 degrees – a substantial decrease from the normal range.
The P-DTR Approach to Diagnosis and Treatment
Our evaluation quickly pinpointed the root causes: heightened nociceptive patterns around her middle and posterior scalenes and the hypertonicity of her clavicular pectoralis major muscle. Utilizing the innovative P-DTR (Proprioceptive Deep Tendon Reflex) methodology, we were able to efficiently identify and address these dysfunctions.
Remarkable Results and Enhanced Mobility
The transformation was nothing short of remarkable. The before-and-after images taken within just the initial ten minutes of the session, which included a brief exploration of the symptom history, showcased a significant improvement. This case exemplifies the power of P-DTR in swiftly and effectively resolving complex musculoskeletal issues.
P-DTR’s Versatility in Practice
This case is a testament to the revolutionary impact of P-DTR in various medical and therapeutic fields. Whether it’s chiropractic, medicine, massage therapy, physical therapy, or personal training, P-DTR’s rapid and effective results make it an invaluable tool for any practitioner.
