Immediate Pain Relief

"I first came to learn of PRT-I at a state conference where Dr. Tim Speicher was presenting. During the presentation, Dr. Speicher asked if anyone had an area that needed relief. I stated that I needed pain relief in my right posterior tibialis muscle in my lower leg. Being an educator in sports medicine with a research background in the human neurological system, I had my doubts regarding the potential benefit to a short treatment of PRT-i. My pain at the time (7 out of 10) was the result of enhanced running with a history of ankle instability, as well as, a dislocated patella on my right side. At that time, I felt that only rest or training modification would provide resolution to the discomfort I was experiencing with my posterior tibialis during ADLs and physical activity. Dr. Speicher performed a position release technique for about 5 minutes during which I felt immediate pain (2 out of 10) and tension relief. Thus, that was my first connection and anecdotal evidence of the potential impact of PRT-i. Following that experience, I was interested and took Dr. Speicher’s course of PRT-i where he provided the scientific theories, as well as, the clinical practice methods from the foot to the neck. The theory regarding PRT-i effectiveness made conceptual sense and the pain relief provided in patients was real. Thus, I support PRT-i and its utility as a manual therapy technique with patients with any musculoskeletal pain or discomfort. Additionally, I would recommend any musculoskeletal practitioner to learn the concepts and take the instructional course to add a new tool that only requires ones hands to their box of therapeutic interventions. "

- Brad H. PhD, ATC/L University of Utah Athletic Training Program Director

Patients Testimonials

Nothing Worked Until I Tried PRT

"I had a bike crash that caused some lingering issues in my knee. As a competitive cyclist it was very important that I get the problem fixed as quickly as possible. I ended up seeing 4 different doctors, one of them being a surgeon who was convinced he needed to operate. Luckily the surgeon couldn't get me in until later that month so in the meantime I wanted to try everything else possible. I was guided to Dr. Speicher by some teammates of mine and saw immediate results. I had tried everything: massage, Graston, muscle activation, and extended time off the bike. Nothing worked until I tried Positional Release Therapy and now, after only a few treatments, my knee is 100% better. I went from being scheduled for surgery to pain free in 3 weeks. Not only was I pain free, but Dr. Speicher was able to get the muscles around the injury that had stopped working to activate again. I have never seen anyone who knows the body in its entirety and how it's all connected better. I will forever be grateful for Dr. Speicher saving me from unnecessary surgery and getting me back on the bike pain free."

- Melinda


Sciatic Nerve Pain Gone

"Dr. Speicher and his team have helped me immensely with my sciatic nerve pain. I have suffered for 8 years with this pain and it has been very debilitating at times. He was able to release all the tense muscles and give me immediate relief, but even better, he recognized that I had a leg length discrepancy and that it could be contributing to my hip pain as well. He customized some orthotics for me and I have felt like a new woman! Through his exercises and stretches he has taught me, my strength is back and I feel amazing! If I ever have tight, sore muscles that are contributing to pain, he is the man to see! Thank you so much to him and his staff for their excellent care & genuine concern for me and everyone I have sent there as well!"

- Suzy Robertson


100% Endorsement

"Tim is amazing. I've never experienced treatment that didn't hurt and made such improvements. He has a tremendous knowledge pertaining to injury, treatment, recovery, and prevention. I have never felt better. My performance has improved and my body likes me better. I can't say enough about PRT & Tim. I absolutely trust and endorse him 100%. "

- Caprice C.


95% Pain Free

"Shout out......Tim treated a very sore shoulder of mine on Thursday. I could not even sleep with the pain. On Friday, I was 95% pain free......."

- Kathryn M.


Tried Everything!

"Dr. Speicher is a genius magician. That's the only explanation. I have dealt with debilitating hip pain and have been heartbroken over not being able to run as much as I've wanted to for over five years since a hurdling injury in college. I've tried physical therapy, sports massage, rest, ice, heat, x-rays, cross training, acupuncture, etc. Nothing was working. After less than a year of positional release therapy and some custom running orthotics from Dr. Tim Speicher, I am amazed to be feeling great running and cycling! I am looking forward to unhindered training on the bike this year, and am even training for a half marathon this winter, something I wouldn't have considered just a few months ago. Thank you PRTI!"

- Joan M.


Finally Healed

- Colleen N.


7 Minute PR!

" I just wanted to thank you for seeing me last Thursday before I ran the St. George marathon. I enjoyed the treatment and feel like it really helped me. I not only was able to run the marathon pain-free, but also ran a 7 minute PR. I was afraid I would not be able to run the entire race, but finished without any problems. Thank you so much!!"

- Cathy P


Gentle and Immediately Effective

"Tim is amazing. I have been a migraine sufferer for years. His treatment helps reduce the number and the intensity of the migraines I suffer from. I love that PRT causes no pain and helps relieve pain immediately. Treatment is gentle and immediately effective."

- Donna B.


Avoided surgery and pain free!

"For many years I have had pain in my right knee and hip. Several years ago I went to my primary care physician who took X-rays, checked my joints, and then gave me a prescription for pain relief. Two years ago I went to a reputable knee surgeon who once again took X-rays and physically checked my knee. He concluded that the cartilage had been completely worn away over the years. However, he told me knee replacement surgery would not be successful until I had my right hip replaced. Therefore, I made an appointment with one of his colleagues who specializes in total hip replacements and was told that I was the “perfect candidate” for that surgery. I made an appointment for surgery and was waiting for the appointed time when a friend told me I should make an appointment with Dr. Tim Speicher. She tried to explain to me his procedure, but I doubted that he could do anything for my pain since it was a matter of no cartilage in the joints. As the time for surgery grew nearer, my friend’s insistence grew stronger, and I finally made the appointment. Dr. Speicher looked at my X-rays from the orthopedic specialists and agreed that the absence of cartilage was evident. He found that my left leg is ¼ inch shorter than my right leg, had me walk on a treadmill, and analyzed my gait. He ordered orthotics for my shoes and proceeded to administer Positional Release Therapy. After three treatments I realized that I was virtually pain free. The treatments had been so non-invasive and gentle that I had doubted at the time that they could be effective. However, it has now been several months, I walk 3+ miles a day, just turned 70 years old, and I am still almost entirely without pain. I do not take pain medications, but I know if I do extremely hard physical work or injure myself that I can get a treatment and feel better almost immediately. I, obviously, cancelled my surgery and hope that I can avoid having hip or knee replacement surgery altogether. I do not entirely understand how PRT works, but I can attest that it does work! I have recommended Dr. Speicher to many of my friends who have also found relief from pain through his treatments. I am so grateful to have found such an effective and non-invasive therapy. Also, Dr. Speicher is a true professional. He is empathic and compassionate and is truly a one-of-a kind therapist. "

- Elaine J.


I walk normal now...

"I had severe pain issues with my hip for many months. It was difficult to walk normally. I had been to orthopedic surgeons, received a cortisone injection and spent 6 weeks in their physical therapy. I still could not walk without pain and had just about given up. My sister told me about Tim (Dr. Speicher) and that he had helped her with joint pain issues. He has helped me immensely! I walk normal now and without pain. He has helped me with my shoulder too. The guy is a magician!"

100% better

"Tim is amazing! I got plantar fasciitis during the middle of my marathon training. After seeing Tim, I was able to bounce back in no time! My foot feels 100% better and I attribute all of that to Tim and PRT! It works and is amazing. I recommend it to anyone. "

- Lauren E.


W O W!

"Wow, wow, WOW! Tim is freaking amazing with this magic called positional release therapy! I've tried physical therapy, ASTYM, underwater treadmill training . . . I even resorted to torture last season with the dreaded R word - REST! I am, however, seeing the quickest and most significant improvements with Tim! In addition to PRT (which in and of itself is amazing), Tim looks at the big picture and provides answers to the symptom etiology, which I believe is most important for long-term athletic endeavors. He doesn't just temporarily treat symptom A; he treats symptom A AND cause B so that symptom A doesn't come back. And he's fantastic at giving life advice as well! Tim, thank you for helping me so that I can continue doing what I LOVE until I'm 90!! :) (Yep, I just might be one of those 80 year-olds featured on tv finishing another Ironman!) :) "

- Brandy S


Relief Immediately

"I started going to PRTI in February for a jaw issue that had started over the holiday season, the specialist that I went to referred me. At first I thought I don't understand how this is going to help the situation, but since the pain was unbearable, and I do not like to take medications, I thought lets see what happens. To my surprise I noticed some initial relief immediately, and each treatment there after the pain became less, my jaw pain has been considerably reduced. "

- Ann E.


Dr. Speicher fixed me!

"Big thanks to Dr. Speicher for 'fixing' me! I'm on the road to full recovery from ACL surgery and PRT has been one of the golden nuggets of therapy. It's resolved so many points of inhibition in my body that's almost unbelievable. "

- BJ S


Pain and Injury Free!

"Thanks to Tim, my marathon training has been pain and injury free! PRT-i is an amazing therapy that really works and the best part is it doesn't hurt! I have been able to really enjoy running after understanding why I was having pain in the first place. Tim has helped me so much and I would recommend this therapy to anyone wanting to become a better runner and of course not have injuries....what more could you ask for!"

- Arrienne W


Collegiate Runner Sets new PR's!!

"I started running seriously as a sophomore in high school. With lots of hard work I was able to go from one of the slower kids to one of the best in the state by my junior year. I was totally pumped for my senior year. However biomechanical issues that I had always had with my form started to catch up to me. This eventually resulted in a devastating muscular injury in my calf that stopped me from running only a month before the high school cross country national championships. I looked for help from all kinds of doctors and physical therapists before I found Tim Speicher. I was immediately impressed by his running specific knowledge and expertise. He knows his stuff. Thanks to his help with positional release therapy I was able to put together a good race at nationals. However the greatest thing Speicher did for me came after that event. Frustratingly, my injuries returned after my miracle race and would persist into indoor track. After an enlightening biomechanical analysis I got to work strengthening my weaknesses that were the cause of my unstable form. Without the combination of Tim Speicher's strengthening program and other therapy there is no way I could have come back in the spring like I did. After a lot of work and closely following Speicher's advice I jumped from being injured to where I was not only racing and healthy again but breaking all my PRs. I ended up running a 4:22 mile and 9:19 two-mile as a senior which was unbelievable to me after all the struggles I had had. I owe a lot of that to Tim Speicher. I learned so much from him about how to train smarter and avoid injury. I am pumped to implement what I learned moving forward as a collegiate runner so that nothing gets in the way of my racing. I seriously learned how I could have prevented every injury I had ever struggled with thanks to understanding my weaknesses and how to take care of my body better. I wish I had known about PRTi sooner! "

- Andrew A.


Pain Subsided

"The first visit had with Tim at PRTi the immense pain I was experiencing in my foot completely subsided. The pain came back but at about 1/3 of the pain level. After only 3 visits to Tim my pain is almost all gone, and I am feeling more active than I have in a long time. I am very happy with the treatments and feel like they are worth while. "

- Jennifer


Guidance to avoid injury

"Just have to say thanks to Dr. Speicher at PRT-i. The help I received relieved my pain. More importantly, I got the guidance needed to continue building muscle, avoid further injury and enjoy activity again. Thanks, Tim!"

- Louise M


Almost instant pain reduction and muscle relaxation

"I am a 67 year old male who continues to enjoy rock and ice climbing, mountaineering and backpacking as a result of the athletic training and positional release therapy I have received from Tim Speicher. I have never known anyone with such a deep understanding of the mechanics of the human body. His use of positional release therapy provided almost instant pain reduction and muscle relaxation. His diagnostic skill, therapeutic expertise and prescription of specific targeted exercises have helped me overcome injuries that could have ended my ability to participate in my beloved outdoor sports. My only regret is that he now lives half a continent away. I first met Tim in 2003 while rock climbing at a crag near my home in Connecticut. I was without my regular climbing partner (my wife, Caltha) as she had been having severe knee problems. Tim and I climbed together and hit it off as friends. I invited Tim over to my place for post-climb refreshment and to meet my wife. While relaxing on the patio, we learned that Tim was a positional release therapist and certified athletic trainer. Caltha explained to Tim the nature of her ongoing knee issues, and that she had been recommended to have a highly invasive surgical procedure with a very lengthy recovery period and only a limited chance of fully regained abilities. I remember Tim saying "I think I may be able to help you" and he did, beyond our wildest hopes. I will not go into further detail on this, as Caltha is preparing her own testimonial. At some point after Tim had helped Caltha fully recover her ability to join me in climbing, mountaineering and backpacking, I began experiencing post-climb elbow pain, which became chronic. I sought help from Tim and learned that my problem stemmed from compensating muscles making up for an undiagnosed and untreated partial rotator cuff tear suffered in a fall a decade earlier. He used positional release therapy to alleviate pain and proscribed a regimen of strengthening exercises that I continue to follow. I have had no more issues of elbow pain, and continue to enjoy rock and ice climbing. Thank you Tim, for your great skill as a healer. "

- Jerry A


Rare healer who deeply understands the human body...

""Tim is one of those rare healers who deeply understands the human body and knows how to fix what's not working. I sought out Tim's services when I was unable to walk because of severe knee pain. I had sought help from a variety of health practitioners without any success. Tim helped me regain health and taught me proactive strategies that have kept me out there hiking, back packing, rock climbing, ice climbing and more for the past ten years.""
