IRT (Injury Recall Technique) is a gentle procedure used following a recent or ancient injury or trauma.  IRT restores muscle balance to pre-injury status, often dramatically relieving pain and restoring range of motion.

What IS IRT?


The late Robert Crotty, DPM, made the first observations of what we now call IRT.  His protege and colleague, Gordon Bronston, DPM, made additional contributions to what they called the "Muscle Chain Response."  In the late 1980's, Walter Schmitt, DC, added manual muscle testing and applied kinesiology assessment procedures to the original observations and more fully described the "Muscle Chain Response" in terms of modern neurological concepts.


Who first thought of Irt?

how important is Irt?

IRT (Injury Recall Technique) has been taught to thousands of doctors worldwide.

Of any single procedure, you might say, "IRT gets the biggest bang for the buck!"  Thus, Dr. Schmitt has often said, "If I could only perform one procedure in my office, it would be IRT!" 


" If I could use only one procedure in

  my office, it would be IRT!​ "
