Summer is nearly half over, which means Fall is quickly approaching, and PRC applications will be due soon! Reminder that the Postural Restoration Certified (PRC) credentialing program deadline is September 15th, and since it will likely be another large group, we will limit the credentialing program to the first 30 applicants. Two copies of each application (including full text of the articles used in the article review portion) must be mailed to PRI, and received by September 15th to be considered for testing this December. Please be sure that all items on the PRC application checklist are submitted. Please note that the PRC application has been updated this year. To print an application, CLICK HERE!

PRC testing is scheduled for December 12-13th (following the four day Advanced Integration course) in Lincoln, NE.

*International clinicians who are interested in applying should contact me ASAP, as additional educational information must be submitted by August 1st for review and approval by the PRI Board of Directors to determine eligibility for the PRC credentialing program.

Are you planning to apply this year? If so, please let me know! Also, if you are preparing your application, and have any questions, please call or email me!

Teaching at Northeastern University a course on cervical influences on the body and cranium was so gratifying for so many reasons. It was our 6th course at this host site and after I experienced the warm hospitality and support it probably will not be the last. These people allowed me to get through the course objectives, which many of you know it is difficult because of my love for tangicial speech, and provide historical relationships between osteopathy and PRI concepts. Jen – you have made my job  easier because of your hospitality and administrative mission to distribute and receive all pertinent articles and items that the Institute needs. I love teaching this course, but each course has its own  personality and the attendees from the Northeast part of the USA, and Israel, the students, the nurse with her CSCS, and the dentist who works with athletes, all now have one thing in common; respect for the temporal rotation and sphenoid greater wing height. Dr. Portnoy thank you for all your contributions and your participation. It helped so much!  Boston’s knowledge and application of PRI principles is growing because of the staff at Northeastern University and people like Donna Behr, and Sean Fitzgerald who had assisted and work so hard as PRCs to endorse this Institute!

Australia!!  The land "down under".  PRI is intercontinental once again.  Europe, Asia and now Australia.   Hosted by Jason Thomson and his wife Emma, I traveled to Newcastle about two hours north of Sydney and the adventure began.  I spent the weekend teaching Myokinematics to a group of 28 clinicians.  On hand at the class was Steve Hewitt DC and he is no stranger to PRI.  I met Steve in in NY recently at a Cervical Revolution course.  Also there was Craig Ambler and Mark Barclay.  Both of these gentleman are top notch and were excited to be there.  Impact Health Studio is a fantastic facility in which Jason and Emma train athletes and even mothers in their "Mums Empowered" program.  Emma Thomson is an accomplished author with an exciting story to tell about life and achievement.  Her book "Happiness, Health and Freedom" should be a must read for all young ladies.  Special thanks to Jason and Emma for rolling out the red carpet for my daughter Sophia and me. 

Sophia is with me presently as we head to Sydney for some vacation time this week.  Then, we will return to Newcastle and i will teach the next class!  Yes!  Postural Respiration happens this coming weekend!   More on how it goes later so stay tuned!!...

RJ, Hannah and I traveled this past week to a steamy New Orleans, LA for the NSCA National Convention Conference. The conference was filled with CPTs ,CSCSs and ATCs stopping by to learn more about the Institute and the different courses we have. Many were interested in our new PRI Integration for Fitness and Movement course as a large majority of them work with sport teams or do gym/group training. Next year we will be heading to Houston for the NATA National Convention and Las Vegas for the NSCA National Conference.

PRI Integration for the Home is updated and expanded.

Nearly 40 new techniques have been added to the existing 75 techniques available in our flagship affiliate course PRI Integration for the Home. This course continues to focus on successful PRI integration for geriatric, chronic pain and frail patients in home, inpatient and also outpatient settings. Highlights include gait integration via new hamstring specific, adductor specific, glute medius specific and glute max specific standing resisted techniques. They also include new right serratus anterior, left serratus/left low trap and right low trap techniques that unlock torsional thoracic patterns to restore upper half gait mechanics and functional balance to the geriatric athlete. 

It was a pleasure to return to Nebraska to collaborate with our superstar Home Integration model Irene, who's beautiful smile makes balanced gait and reciprocal activity seem effortless. Thanks for being so patient with our tedious photo shoot and all our weird requests. But mostly I'd like to thank you for your kind hospitality and your willingness to host us once again as we work to find better ways to deliver successful rehab outcomes to this awesome patient population.

Come and experience the updated Home Integration course during one of our 3 remaining offerings this year: Salem, Oregon on August 21-22, Seattle, Washington on October 15-16 and Warner Robbins, Georgia on October 29-30.
