How do pain elimination reflex therapies work?

These two reflexes work together with the autonomic nervous system (ANS). The ANS controls bodily functions like breathing, digestion, muscle and nerve function. The startle reflex is very common in someone who has experienced some form of trauma like a car accident or fall. The withdrawal reflex is when you touch something hot or step on a sharp object. The body instantly goes into a protective reflex in response to the trauma.

For many people who are injured, muscles stay in a “upregulated” state or in a state of reflexive muscle spasm. This “upregulated” state can last for weeks, months, even years. Now the startle and withdrawal reflexes become chronic and abnormal. This causes chronic joint and muscle problems like headaches, TMJ dysfunction, shoulder, neck and back pain, to mention a few.

What is pain elimination reflex therapy treatment like?

Pain Elimination Reflex Therapies treatment can be done as a stand alone therapy or very easily combined with other therapies. After taking your history, checking range of motion, structural and postural analysis the therapist will touch certain key areas of your body looking for tenderness and tightness. These painful areas are treated with various techniques such as tapping certain areas or holding the body in certain position to relax opposing muscle groups. Other techniques work to reset the startle and withdrawal reflex. Combining Pain Elimination Reflex Therapies with massage therapy adds an extra benefit. When done prior to a massage it significantly reduces trigger points and muscle spasm allowing for easier muscle release. Pain Elimination Reflex Therapies are frequently done after a massage also.
