Functional Neurology

What is Functional Neurology (PDTR)?

PDTR is a therapeutic system that uses functional neurology tools to remove pain by treating the sensory nervous system

My Goal

To help create an optimized, pain-free, version of you, by finding the cause of your complaint, not just symptoms.

The current accepted medical model is focused on suppressing the symptoms, so you only temporarily feel better. They focus their resources on examining the area in pain, prescribing medication or using expensive equipment, ignoring the rest of the body.

What I do differently

First I take a detailed injury history and assess current lifestyle, then I start to look at the current complaints and how they might link to any life style or historic events. I then start testing muscles ability to contract, relax and their range of motion in different positions. Once we have all of this information we can start to test the receptors of the body and see how this effects the previous tests.

What is a receptor?

Receptors (free nerve endings) are part of the sensory nervous system that send information to our brain so we can see, hear, smell and feel the environment around us. They will also act as feedback loops for internal reactions as well to control the biochemical balance in the body.

Why is this important?

Receptors can have direct effect on a muscles ability to contract, relax, stretch and even the secretion of biochemicals which will have an effect on the strength or stability of the whole system.

Who needs this treatment?

PDTR can be used to fix nearly any issue in the body, if you have pain that other therapies have failed to clear or a reoccurring pain/injury that is only cleared for short periods then I can help.

What is the treatment?

The tests for PDTR rely on manual muscle testing and looking at the muscles ability to contract and relax while stimulating certain receptors.


I had more energy and suddenly I had eagle vison 

For the first time in my life I could feel my chest muscles contract and now my chest is finally growing evenly

After one session my posture is the best its ever been

My hips are as flexible as when I was 18 again

Within a few minutes the pain in my back was gone I couldn’t believe it

I’ve been to see Christian for multiple issues and it never ceases to amaze me how fast results come

After a few sessions my scoliosis is gone

Within one session I was back in the gym without any pain

My squat improved greatly

I saw many therapists with no luck, then Christian managed to reduce my back pain to almost nothing in 3 sesssions 

I heard of Christian through mutual friends so I decided to see Christian because I had  1- a pulled my hamstring and after months of self care it was not healing and problem 2- I dislocated my shoulder but had a line of pull after it was reset as well as it being unstable.

Before the treatment, my hamstring was painful and sitting quite uncomfortable. The line of pull in my arm was not painful however, it affected my upper body training because of the discomfort.

My hamstring is healed and I can now complete all hamstring exercises pain free and the line of pull in my arm also went. Within one week my arm was better and hamstring two weeks later.
