For those of you who haven't heard, PRI is expanding, and ground breaking for the new PRI Headquarters building took place today, with anticipated completion in early 2016! The building will be just across the parking lot from the current location. In addition to a larger office space, we will also be able to hold up to 120 people in our new, state of the art course space! Here are some ground breaking photos, along with the architectural drawing for the building design. I look forward to sharing more photos as progress continues!

PRI Integration for the Home (Seattle Wash). Thank you Betsy Baker-Bold, PT, PRC and Olympic Physical Therapy for hosting another great course in the Pacific Northwest. We had a great weekend outlining testing and treatments for the patient who doesn't get out to the gym, but who spends the majority of their time at home in their recliner. 

Physical therapists and occupational therapists alike who work with geriatrics and chronic pain patients in a wide variety of settings were in attendance. In fact, there were a number of clinicians present who don't do home health at all, but wanted to glean as many ideas as they could for patients who do not tolerate traditional PRI positions and activities. It was refreshing for them to be able to test for movement and gait sequence in real-life positions like a kitchen chair, and even a recliner. 

We concluded that the Supine Hooklying ZOA with Alternating Trunk Rotation exercise was a powerful integrated activity that has application in many other settings beyond just home health. The Supported Left Stance in Left AFIR from the Left AIC Pattern exercise was also identified as a tri-planer movement facilitator to enhance things like gait, balance, transfers and  even bed mobility. Had a great time with functional integration of the material and with identifying asymmetrical functional routines. Thanks everyone for your great ideas.

This past weekend, Professional hockey was formally introduced to PRI. Over the years, some ATC's, Strength Coaches, and PT's in hockey have found PRI and begun to successfully employ the techniques with their athletes. But, now at the behest of PHATS (Professional Hockey Athletic Trainers Society) and SPHEM (Society of Professional Hockey Equipment Managers), PRI was invited to their annual conference and I formally presented the entry level course, Myokinematic Restoration. The group consisted of 64 Athetlic Trainers and Strength coaches who learned about asymmetries, establishing neutrality, and trouble-shooting some difficult case studies. A big thank you to my two lab assistants, Kentaro Ishii and Kevin Neeld! By the end of the course, smiles and handshakes abounded and I was told to plan on returning next year to teach Postural Respiration. I was honored to work with such a fine group of professionals, and I won't soon forget my time in San Antonio, Texas!!!
