SRT for Rehab & Sports Medicine

Optimizing NMS Assessment & Treatment


Spinal Reflex Therapy (SRT) for Physical Therapy is an innovative, evidence based assessment and treatment protocol designed to optimize your outcomes. SRT will dramatically improve assessment and treatment accuracy, increase patient and provider satisfaction, increase referral rates and lower your marketing costs. It is based on universal principals in physiology and neurology that are taught and applied specifically for your profession's protocols, scope of practice and professional needs. While the SRT protocol can be used as a standalone treatment, it also enhances and integrates with other physical therapy techniques used in assessing and treating neuromusculoskeletal (NMS) conditions.

Developed by Dr. Loyd Frank Jarrell, the world's leading expert in spondylogenic reflex syndromes (SRS), SRT is predicated upon 85 years of research and 21 years of clinical management of the SRS for rapid and long lasting results unlike any other protocol on the market today.

SRT for Physical Therapy is available for Physical Therapists, Physical Therapist Assistants, Certified Athletic Trainers, Occupational Therapists, Exercise Physiologists and Physiotherapists in the EU and AU.

I have been busy practicing SRT to my heart’s content and I am constantly amazed by the results and comments from my patients. I recently had a patient with Achilles tendonitis, I’ve treated three times (out of four) with SRT and the first treatment I saw her for was Dry Needling. She’s a Personal Trainer and was competing in a competition at a Gym for 12 weeks (just finished last week)…she won a $1000 travel voucher. She said she would not have had any hope of completing the comp if she hadn’t seen me for treatment. She is now a huge fan of SRT.

PDR Driven Outcomes

Predictable, dependable and reproducible (PDR) outcomes are critical for an efficient and successful provider/patient experience. Outcomes are dependent upon high quality, standardized protocols and procedures. SRT emphasizes the intrinsic nature of spine activated and cord mediated "withdrawal reflexes" that can impact all muscle and joint regions of the body. Withdrawal; AKA "spondylogenic reflexes" produce a combined sensory/motor facilitation pattern that is 100% consistent and identical across all patients having the same spondylogenic reflex. Whether one, or seven billion plus individuals, a spondylogenic reflex is a neurologically hard wired response and once understood and accurately identified, treatment options become swift and efficient.

I have taken the opportunity to work with a case study and have so far had two sessions to treat a knee problem. The patient had swelling and decreased range of motion before treatments. After two sessions oedema has lessened and the range of motion has increased. No longer does the patient suffer from pain walking downhill, she only occasionally feels a lateral tension on the knee, and her pain has reduced.

SRT Assessment & Treatment

"Rooted in hard science, years of clinical application and one indisputable fact; a reflex, is a reflex, is a reflex."

SRT Assessment and Treatment respects the body’s natural defense system and its ability to activate a wide array of torso, neck and extremity muscles through complex reflexes as a means to address an attack from behind you. Your spine produces a series of reflexes known and defined in neurophysiology as a "withdrawal reflexes."

When you do not see, hear or smell a threat coming from behind you, your spine will respond significantly faster than your brain to the stimuli. This primary non-visual reflex system relies on withdrawal reflexes that originate from the spinal facet joints called “spondylogenic reflexes” (spondylo=vertebra, genic=origin).

Physical Therapist Practicing Spinal Reflex Therapy

When a spondylogenic reflex gets “stuck on” due to overstretch, tears, muscle weakness and resulting chronic or recurrent instability in and around the capsular ligaments of a spinal facet joint, it hijacks the sensory/motor nervous system, activates a cascade of neurological and physiological reactions in select muscles, ligaments and tendons and results in pain and dysfunction until systematically corrected. When a spondylogenic reflex stays activated, it is defined in medical literature as a “spondylogenic reflex syndrome“ (SRS). The spondylogenic reflex syndrome is responsible for a tremendous amount of pain and suffering in all populations and its prevalence is rising rapidly on a global level due to increasing musculoskeletal weakness. Each generation is getting weaker in spinal and whole body muscle strength than the last generation and, along with poor dietary, lifestyle and work habits, spondylogenic reflex syndromes continue to increase in prevalence and severity.

When properly trained through Spinal Reflex Institute, Intl., any one of the 28 pairs of spondylogenic reflexes can be located in approximately 30 seconds and Spinal Reflex Therapy can be applied immediately to effectively treat a given reflexive muscle pattern and its induced attachment tendonitis, joint tracking error and inflammatory complications over the following 15-45 minutes. The cumulative effect of treatment is a significant reduction in pain, spasms, stiffness, motion dysfunction, stress, anxiety and fatigue.

Frank and Jennifer are both extremely talented, patient and humble in their approach to teaching, and their caring for their patients and colleagues are readily seen. I have learned a tremendous amount from them.

FLIR Infrared Imaging

SRA TrueCore™ Spinal Stabilization - Recommended Elective

FLIR E8 Infrared Temperature and Thermal Imaging units are optional and can be purchased in the Cart. They are recommended for superior multi-use assessment and treatment of conditions reflecting joint and tissue inflammation, vascular changes, lymphatic status, neuropathies, as a laser therapy targeting device, for monitoring all pre and post therapy outcomes, patient education and report writing using IR images.

SRA TrueCore™ Spinal Stabilization Care includes specific exercises necessary to achieve long-term patient self-support for specific unstable zygapophyseal joints. SRA TrueCore™ exercises are easy to instruct, easy to learn and are performed in 2-3 minutes for each unstable level (typical 1-3 exercises max per patient). 

All exercises are based on the latest concepts and research into the neurology of extraocular muscle firing driving the deepest layer intersegmental muscle activation (rotatories, intertransversarii, interspinalis and levator costae brevis) and their dependent sequential paraspinal (multisegmental) and large motor (multiregional) firing cascade. TrueCore™ is a critical link in understanding the paraspinal firing chain and applying "true" solutions.
