Doctor Jose Palomar Lever
P-DTR Global AG
Doctor Jose Palomar Lever is the creator of Proprioceptive-Deep Tendon Reflex (P-DTR) - a unique neurological method of treating functional diseases. He began his medical education at the Autonomous University of Guadalajara and received training in Orthopedic Surgery and Traumatology at the Central Military Hospital. Between 1984 and 1988, Dr. Palomar served as an orthopedic surgeon at the Reconstructive and Plastic Surgery Institute of Jalisco and received a specialized training in minimally invasive spine surgery at the Texas Back Institute in Dallas.
Continuing to explore what he now refers to as the “software” of the human body, Dr. Palomar received a diploma in AK from the International College of Applied Kinesiology and received the organization’s Memorial Award for Research.
Today, besides pursuing an ongoing research program, Dr. Palomar conducts trainings in P-DTR for medical practitioners in America and Europe and continues to practice medicine from his home base in Guadalajara.
P-DTR - New Neurological Reflexogenic Treatment
Aberrant afferent information is the cause of most neurological problems.
With specific challenges to the mechano, chemo and nociceptors and the discovered predictable “rules” for them, it is possible to obtain a precise diagnosis of the functional problem. The difference in the CNS response under normal conditions (no dysfunction) and during the stimulation of a dysfunctional afferent input has been demonstrated extensively. The types of manual afferent inputs (stimuli) that are used can be produced in a variety of ways including light swiping (to stimulate the receptors of touch), local stretching (to stimulate Golgi receptors), deep pressure (Pacini receptors) and many more. Today, P-DTR works with most of the exteroceptors, interoceptors, and proprioceptors that form the afferent input to the CNS.
The physiological explanation of this method is logical – each type of receptor (for example: Golgi, Pacini, vibration, nociceptors etc.) is stimulated and when the threshold for that receptor has been exceeded by the amount of stimuli, the stimuli are converted into electrical impulses. These electrical impulses form the afferent information that reaches the CNS with each type of input being relayed along their respective pathways. The CNS receives this information, interprets it and makes a motor or gland response based on the synthesis of all the information it has received, for example, the sensation of PAIN. It is synthesized directly in the brain and is a complex product of the information from the nociceptive, proprioceptive, and exteroceptor systems. Put simply, the sensation of pain would be the interpretation of the brain based on a complex integration of information from a variety of different sources.
This knowledge gives us the opportunity to diagnose and treat our patients in a non-expensive and safe way.
