SRA for Physicians & Mid-Level Providers
Standardizing NMS Diagnostics & Treatment
Spondylogenic Reflex Analysis (also known as Spinal Reflex Analysis or SRA) for Physicians and Mid-Level providers is an evidence based protocol designed to rapidly identify one of the most prevalent causes of neuromusculoskeletal (NMS) pain and dysfunction. SRA is a critical element in differential diagnostics of atypical sensory/motor signs/symptoms, radicular vs. nonradicular pain, failed spinal injection therapy, spine and joint post-surgical complications, and progressive or chronic spinal instability. SRA 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.
Developed by Dr. Loyd Frank Jarrell, the world's leading expert on spondylogenic reflex syndromes (SRS), SRA is predicated upon 85 years of formal research and 21 years of clinical management of the cascade of physiological and neurological reactions originating from SRS.
SRA Diagnostics and Treatment Training is available for Doctors of Chiropractic, Doctors of Osteopathy, Medical Doctors, Physician Assistants, Physiatrists, Orthos, Naturopathic Doctors, Nurse Practitioners, Oriental Medicine Doctors, and Acupuncturists.

PDR Driven Outcomes
Precision protocols for predictable, dependable and reproducible (PDR) outcomes are critical for an efficient and successful doctor-patient experience. Outcome based workflow is dependent upon standardized protocols and procedures in all NMS settings.
SRA relies upon the intrinsic nature of "withdrawal reflexes" originating from zygapophyseal capsular ligaments in the posterior structures of the spinal column. When originating from the spine, acute or chronically activated withdrawal reflexes are defined as spondylogenic reflexes and will produce a polysynaptic, multimuscular sensory/motor facilitation pattern that is 100% consistent across all patients. Like all reflexes, whether in one or seven billion plus individuals, a spondylogenic reflex is a neurologically hard wired response, and once understood and accurately identified, treatment options are efficient and outcomes are maximized.
SRA Diagnostics & Treatment
"Rooted in hard science, years of clinical application and one indisputable fact; a reflex, is a reflex, is a reflex."
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).
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 Spondylogenic Reflex Analysis 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.
SRA TrueCore™ Spinal Stabilization
SRA TrueCore™ Spinal Stabilization Care includes specific exercises necessary to achieve long-term patient self-support for unstable zygapophyseal joints responsible for spondylogenic reflex syndrome activation. TrueCore™ exercises are easy to instruct, easy to learn, and are performed in as little as 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 movement driving the deepest layer intersegmental muscle activation (rotatories, intertransversarii, interspinalis and levator costae brevis) and their dependent sequential paraspinal and large motor firing cascade. TrueCore™ is a critical link in understanding and managing multifidi and other larger multisegmental and multiregional muscle strength and development.
