I spent a great weekend at the Fortius Sport and Health complex in beautiful Vancouver British Columbia. What an awesome host site. And what a super group of professionals attending, most of whom were attending their first ever live PRI course. Ryan, you were a great host and all the attendees were great, especially considering that we were holding the course on the weekend of Thanksgiving in Canada (and the Toronto Blue Jays were back in the playoffs!). Thanks for spending time with us and missing or rescheduling your Thanksgiving turkey dinners. As for the majestic beauty of Vancouver, this is God's Country. Wow! Reminded me of my youth growing up near beautiful Glacier National Park in NW Montana. And when I went on a walk around the lake across from the complex and saw a "Caution, Bears in the Area" sign, I felt right at home. Fortunately, I didn't run into any bears or other wild animals.

But it was beautiful. As for the Myokinematic Restoration course, this weekend was a nostalgic experience for me. One, because my PRI journey started with this course and it has been my pleasure to have taught it so many times over the years to so many new and energetic attendees, both live and through the home study. Two, because I realized I will not be teaching this course as much in the future because of my expanding affiliate course responsibilities and because we have a growing number of new faculty members who will have the responsibility of teaching our primary courses. I'm excited for our institute's growth and development, but I must say, a reflective weekend like this in such a beautiful place really made me miss those early years of PRI and all those great experiences. A big "thank you" to anyone who has ever shared a Myokin moment with me over the years. You are what makes it all worth it!

When a patient has an active R TMCC pattern that needs occlusal management, a lower MOOO style bite splint is my go-to intervention. But not all malocclusions are created equal, and the question comes up frequently on how to manage a bite with various degrees of malposition and alternate occlusal schemes. I have attached a resource on how I manage missing teeth, transposed teeth, cross bites and open bites; and the thinking that goes into why I choose to deviate from the standard design process with various malocclusions.

Summit Orthopedics has a palatial sports complex. They hosted Impingement and Instability and we dove into an explanation of the reasons why humans choose to impinge and hurt. Yes...choose! Neurological reference centers were the main topic of conversation and how understanding these "RC's" can help a practitioner eliminate symptoms in minutes. Additionally we learned about precisely why tennis elbow is so problematic and how to manage it with rotator cuff management. Don't miss this incredible class when you begin the journey into the second tier of PRI courses.

It was a joy to once again travel to St Lukes. This time however it was different. The class was Cervical Revolution and the attendees were on hand to learn about the amazing "super computer" called the cervical spine and cranium. We went over, in detail how the mandible and the neck are related, how the neck is the controlling factor for cranial strains. This led us to the reasons why individuals have neck pain and headaches. Finally we got into integration with the dental profession, splint discussions and detailed management with dentists. Now we have a better idea WHEN to call the dentist! If you have had any thoughts about attending this amazing class I would encourage you to do it as soon as you can! Especially if you are a dentist!

Jen Poulin, one of PRI's veteran faculty members, told me that this group of attendees would be great to present to. She was spot on and this group assisted by Carolyn Weber, PT, PRC and Holly Spence, PT, PRC was most engaging and enthusiastic . There were physical therapists that either worked in a hospital setting, private practice or with local ski teams. Former ski racers, now turned physical therapists and mentors that were new to PRI got the concepts immediately and could see applications for their athletes as well as general populations. As always, the questions asked were intelligent and challenging backed by a strong drive to learn and explore new concepts and practical applications of a previously unknown science to many in the room. Also in attendance was a DC/PT, athletic trainers and strength and conditioning professionals. Vermont has a great audience and already has another PRI course scheduled for next year. Many thanks to the staff at Northwestern including Karen Staniels and Christy Cushing. Thanks again to Carolyn and Holly for your help!
