The weather was beautiful in Phoenix and the Seattle Mariners’ Spring Training complex was as well for Myokinematic Restoration last weekend!  We delved into the challenging subject of human kinetics and the relationship to baseball as well as general athletic performance. The class was eager and excited and I received many notations that read “Wow! This is a real paradigm shift for me!”  Thanks to all the participants in the sessions and a special thanks to Jimmy Southard, Head Minor League Athletic Training Coordinator of the Mariners organization for inviting PRI into his living room!!!  It was the best!!!

We are excited to announce and congratulate the Postural Restoration Trained (PRT) Class of 2015!  PRT is the result of completing multiple advanced PRI courses, demonstrating a thorough understanding of the science through completion of the PRT application, and successfully participating in practical and analytical testing. Five individuals earned the designation of Postural Restoration Trained (PRT) under the direction of Ron Hruska, Michael Mullin and Jennifer Platt.

The Postural Restoration Institute® established this credentialing process in 2011 as a way to recognize and identify individuals with advanced training, extraordinary interest and devotion to the science of postural adaptations, asymmetrical patterns and the influence of polyarticular chains of muscles on the human body as defined by the Postural Restoration Institute®.  The PRT credential is available to Certified Athletic Trainers and Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialists who have completed the requirements. With the addition of this class, there are now 23 PRT professionals throughout the U.S.

PRT credentialed athletic trainers and strength and conditioning specialists offer a unique approach to physical medicine called Postural Restoration. This approach addresses underlying biomechanics which can often lead to symptoms of pain and dysfunction. All mechanical influences on the body that restrict movement and contribute to improper joint and muscle position are considered, examined, and assessed. Techniques are utilized to restore proper alignment of the body while proper respiratory dynamics are considered. Treatment encompasses prevention and lifetime integration for long-term successful outcomes.

Congratulations!

In November I have made another trip to Poland to teach Myokinematic  Restoration as well to introduce Postural Respiration for first time in Europe, all together almost 70 professionals came. Because of enormity of material which respiratory course includes, I have decided to extend it to 3 days.  I also made myself available for two extra online sessions to all who attended, so they do not feel "left out". All courses were taught in Polish which helped everybody to understand essence of PRI philosophy as related to mykokin and respiration.  I have chosen my home town Opole, in Southern Poland as place of gathering. My audience however was from all different parts of the country. Consisting of physical therapists as well MD's and strength and conditioning individuals.

While in Poland, I was invited to lecture at the professional meeting in small picturques town named Wisła. There, I met about 70 therapists, where I introduced four basic concepts of PRI pertinent to asymmetry, position, muscular chains and function of diaphragm on human function.

I found all attendees very eager to learn - lots of questions, and our philosophy of evaluating and treating patient was very well received and immediately embraced. I think they are "hooked" on PRI! ;)

I welcomed the opportunity to have one of the attendees from last weekend's PRI Integration for Baseball course write up a course review. Steve Smith, Major League Physical Therapist for the LA Dodgers did a wonderful job summarizing the course in his review. Be sure to check out his write up, titled "Top 5 Reasons Why PRI Integration for Baseball Is As Good As It Gets." Check it out HERE!
