Stephanie Huntsman and the good folks at The Cirque Du Soleil outdid themselves this time around hosting a great weekend of Impingement and Instability. It's always great to return to my hometown Las Vegas, and this weekend did not disappoint. In large part due to Stephanie's kind hospitality in arranging great seats for Karen and I to see two great Cirque shows. We absolutely loved The Beatle’s musical and visual experience "Love" at the Mirage and could not believe how amazing "KA" was at the MGM Grand. Incredible stuff! Performers and acrobats as talented and athletic as anything I’ve seen.

And this course had quite the international flare as well. Luke Worthington, CSCS traveled all the way from London, England. Kan Sugiyama, ATC, CSCS traveled all the way from Tokyo, Japan. Takuto Kondo, ATC, CSCS, DNSET, PRT traveled all the way from rural Japan. And Jacqueline Walt, PT traveled all the way from Toronto, Ontario Canada. Its awesome to see such a developing interest in the science of PRI in so many places, both national and international. Lucy and David, thanks for joining us again from Gym Laird Strength and Conditioning in Lexington. Donna, thanks for coming down from the Great Falls Clinic to represent the great state of Montana. Clete Sigwart, ATC, thanks for your strong interest and for representing the Cincinnati Reds so well. And Mike Zhao, thanks for bringing all those great biomechanical questions all the way from New York City. You guys were all great.

Impingement and Instability allows us to discuss the various areas of the body that can become unstable and fall into both predictable and unpredictable patterns of compensation. We had a great discussion and also demonstration of calcaneal posture and patterns of neurological reference through the foot. This foundational discussion provided a basis for the femoral instability discussion, the ilial instability discussion and even the scapular instability discussion. Thank you to my old friend Nick Valencia, PT from Foothills Sports Medicine and Physical Therapy in Gilbert Arizona (aka Nick Cage) for helping me get both sides of the rib cage internally rotating like it should. This rib activity allows a well positioned and mobile Zone of Apposition and really helps to stabilize the central pillar of core strength for all types of movement. Its so great to see all the good that results when ribs rotate like they should. Nick Cage helped us all learn what rib cage mobility can do to direct proper movement sequence, proper patterns of airflow and the use of neurological reference centers in all parts of the body. Awesome stuff.

We had 42 attendees at Pelvis Restoration this past weekend in Redmond/Bellevue WA (just outside of Seattle.)  16 of the course attendees were new to PRI!  Not only did the course participants gain understanding of frontal plane of the pelvis for stance and swing phase of gait, the ability to utilize PRI tests to assist with which quadrant needed inhibition to assist with facilitation of the frontal was emphasized.  Lots of “light bulb moments” and further enhancement of PRI was capitalized.  This group was awesome.  Lots of great questions and comments from some intellectual clinicians.  Much thanks to Carl from Pro Sports Club for hosting us this past weekend and also to my lab assistants Minh Nguyen - OTD, OTR/L, PRC and Cathy deSmet, PT, PRC.

Teaching Cervical Revolution this last year was truly amazing and one of the most inspirational and rewarding two days I’ve ever had, simply because of course attendee history and location. It was my first PRI course in a new building that reflects both traditional and non-traditional PRI approaches and applications. It was given to an audience that had a course attendee who has been a class participant since 2001 and a faculty member who has been a class participant since 1998 and a faculty member since 2008. Joan Hanson and Mike Cantrell, truly the honor was all mine. I love teaching this course because it represents our history, our scientific foundation and our future direction. The influence of the week on our postural, physiologic and psychologic behavior is unprecedented because of the magnitude that the foramen magnum has on pattern processing.

We are so excited about our new PRI Hub! Below is a video tour if you weren't able to make it to Interdisciplinary Integration or Cervical Revolution. We can't wait to host you at a course soon! Our next course at the Institute is Myokinematic Restoration.

I had a great weekend in Providence, RI. So happy to experience another spring weekend in the Northeast! The trees were in full bloom as was the interest in PRI.  We once again had a diverse group of clinicians from PT’s, ATC’s, and Strength and conditioning specialists, massage therapists and Students! The course attendees were mostly new to the science of PRI 29 out of 46 were taking their first PRI course.  And the #PRINation grows again!  It is so great to have so many new clinicians and wellness professionals interested in learning PRI. I don’t think I have taught a course this year that hasn’t had at least one student in attendance.  

Thank-you to Karen Taylor-Soiles and Michael Mullin for helping me during lab!  These two are so passionate about helping others and I was blessed to have them as my assistants.  A special thanks to Dan and Tom from University Orthopedics for hosting for PRI this weekend.
