Reflexive Performance Reset is a system of breathing and neurological drills that empower the individual to create instant improvement in pain, performance and function. Our clinicians utilize RPR as a foundational part of the initial evaluation and treatment plan. RPR® evaluates the function of the nervous system the identify harmful compensation patterns that cause pain and limit performance.  Your body has two priorities for optimal performance; to breathe and move correctly. Most athletes and people in general, do not, so their bodies find a way to meet those priorities by creating harmful compensation patterns.

Compensation patterns are the main cause of non contact injuries in sport as well as every day aches and pains that limit performance. The initial RPR assessment starts by evaluating your body’s current neurological state and motor patterns with a simple yet thorough testing protocol for the entire body. After the evaluation the individual will begin utilizing a specialized set of neurological exercises called Wake Up Drills™. These exercises stimulate the nervous system to shift the body away from these dysfunctional patterns and flip the switch from survival mode to performance mode. The best part about the whole RPR system is that once the cause of these compensation patterns have been identified, these wake up drills can be implemented on a daily basis on your own!

Because the nervous system controls everything in the body, and RPR is a highly effective method for addressing the nervous system, there are an incredibly wide range of conditions that can be helped with RPR. Our clinicians have utilized RPR as a tool to help find solutions for following conditions and goals:

  • Sports injuries

  • Sports performance

  • Injury prevention

  • Mental performance

  • Stress related conditions

  • Mental conditions such as anxiety

  • Neurological conditions

  • Musculoskeletal pain

  • Dysfunctional Movement

In short, RPR is not for everyone – just those who breathe and move!

Hybrid Performance Group is one of the first healthcare clinics to begin utilizing RPR and are partnered affiliates of the system itself. Dr. Devee serves as a consultant to the organization and Dr. Detweiler has worked as a national and international clinical instructor for Level 1 and Level 2 RPR clinics. Furthermore, our clinicians have helped multiple Columbus high schools and collegiate teams implement the RPR system into their programs and serve an advisory role with those programs to help ensure the best possible results. Implementing the RPR Wake Up Drills at the team level has helped increase performance and drastically reduce the risk of non-contact injuries.

Since its origin, Reflexive Performance Reset has become a trusted tool for clinicians and strength coaches in every major sport for from high school to collegiate to professional level competition. Currently, it is being used across dozens of teams in every Power 5 Conference and major professional sports.

RPR interventions lead to drastic improvements in performance and nervous system function, and the biggest asset of the RPR system is that the athlete and patient can perform these interventions daily, by themselves. The effects of RPR are noticeable and instantaneous, allowing the individual to see instant changes in performance and function. The most common statement from those who use Reflexive Performance Reset is that it is almost impossible to comprehend how massive the changes are that occur until you experience it for yourself. This reason this is common is because most people do not breathe, sit, or move correctly and are under constant stress. Because of this, the body becomes deeply rooted in compensation that after years becomes the new normal of how the body feels. It’s not until those compensations are addressed through the nervous system that we realize how dysfunctional we are, and thusly why Reflexive Performance Reset is hard to comprehend until you experience it.
