Why the contentious nature of comparing techniques

Maybe it’s just human nature but it seems whenever the discussion arises of a technique someone isn’t skilled in or doesn’t believe in, there’s a contentious response. Could this be a territorial protective response? Not sure.

What I do know is that it discourages sharing of ideas and techniques. The bottom line is everything works on someone yet not everyone. It’s a matter of matching the right approach to the patient and then being open to bring in other approaches if needed to achieve the end result.

How Do You Explain PRRT™ To Your Patients?

The way I orient them is to reference a doctor using a reflex hammer to elicit a “knee jerk”.

Most people have had this and other deep tendon reflexes tapped at some point in the past.

I them tell them that I’m going to examine and treat them using the same “circuitry” doctors use with their reflex hammer.

The difference is I’ll be using reflexes for testing and treatment vs. the doctor who only uses them for testing.

I’ve yet to have a patient have a problem with my exam and treatment using PRRT™ once they relate my technique to something similiar their doctor uses.

Is PRRT™ Evidence Based?

PRRT has been a clinical success for years and more than 1500 practitioners actively use PRRT. It is an alternative approach that is easily blended with traditional treatment techniques. This technique isn’t the solution for all patients, but has been clinically proven to frequently reduce pain by more than 50% on the patients first visit.

A Simple Method May Benefit Traumatized Troops

The news media seems to have found a major potential crisis in the health care of our service members, as reported recently by NBC Nightly News.

The news segment indicated that the incidence of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) appears to be significantly higher than reported during the Vietnam War.

One of the main reasons for this increase, NBC News stated, appears to be the number of military personel exposed to buried bombs.

The nature of the explosion seems to create a greater emotional impact than other forms of injury, i.e., gunshot wounds.

The Department of Veterans Affairs health care system, the NBC News segment reported, is overwhelmed with the prospect of hundreds of thousands of vets returning who desperately need help with their PTSD.

“A simple, yet powerful method, has been developed over decades of research” says John Iams, M.A., P.T. of Poway, Calif., in response to this problem.

Iams, a physical therapist, found many of his patients didn’t respond to his efforts to relieve their pain until he evolved his method, the StartLess Reflex™.

Iams researched the nature of the most primitive reflex, the startle reflex, and found a way, often within just minutes, to “reset” the primitive area of our emotional brain where this reflex is housed.

Iams says he is willing to share his maneuver with VA hospitals but knows it’ll take months if not years to wade through the bureaucratic “red tape,” believing our vets will suffer unnecessarily during this time.

What Iams says he hopes to find is a decision maker within the VA system who’ll take a close look at his method and its potential to heal the emotional pain from war.

“A small pilot study,” Iams says, “would prove the potential effectiveness of the method and help solve the PTSD issue for many of our returning vets.”
