Once again I had pleasure traveling to sunny Poland in the first half of the May. Several hundred people were introduced to basic PRI concepts in Warszawa (Warsaw) and Poznań, as well as two courses were taught in Opole (Postural Respiration and Myokin Restoration). Food as usual was delicious and their infrastructure is continuously evolving. Traveling in southern Poland I have spotted these two bridges shown below. I think these bridges are the best representation of levator scapula action in physiological and compensatory state and its influence on cervical lordosis. Concomitant and reciprocal ideas between rehab medicine and engineering are getting stronger in Poland. ;)

I thoroughly enjoyed a weekend of Pelvis Restoration with an inviting group in Seattle this weekend at Quality Care Physical Therapy!  Great discussions of knowing Pelvis Restoration special tests well so as to make the best decisions regarding how to help progress through pelvis algorithm fluidly, & fun with “Payne Train” and MJ during our learning. I enjoyed the whole weekend with my group in beautiful Bothell!  It is no wonder Seattle is the fastest growing metro area in the country!  Thank you to John, Tera, Anne, Carolyn, Anna--the excellent team at Quality Care--for their hospitality.  And thanks to Zach Hawthorne for being such a great representative of PRI for the greater Seattle area as well as a great hand during lab.  Thoroughly enjoyed the Pelvis Restoration experience with you all!

After spending an amazing weekend in Boston, its clear that Art Horne and the Boston Sports Medicine Performance Group are in a class of their own when it comes to hosting a sports medicine and performance symposium. The quality of the experience for this year's Summer Seminar and the attention to detail was as good as it gets for both attendees and presenters. 

I was humbled to be invited to deliver both a keynote address on realizing tri-planar performance through the respiratory diaphragm and a breakout session where I talked about the relationship between the foot and ankle and the thorax. My keynote address followed Dr. Robert Sapolsky, one of the world's leading neuroscientists from Stanford University, who spoke on the topic of Stress, Disease and Coping. The other two keynote speakers were from England, Al Smith, a performance consultant for UK Sport World Class System and Dr. Vincent Walsh, a professor of human brain research at the Institute of Cognitive Neuroscience, University College London. 

Besides a host of great breakout sessions, we were all able to experience a group round table discussion with the Canadian National Basketball Performance Team. The group consisted of Sam Gibbs, Head Therapist, Charlie Weingroff, Strength and Conditioning Lead, Roman Fomin, Senior Scientist, Marc Bubbs, Sports Nutrition Lead and Jason Meehan, Assistant Therapist. Another certified PRI therapist, Allen Gruver, presented one of the breakout sessions on the topic of alternating and reciprocal thoracic integration for the overarm athlete.  

I was able to travel to Boston with my wife Karen.  We had a great time looking at the eclectic architecture of Boston on our way to Fenway Park and riding bikes as we followed the Freedom Trail.  We really enjoyed an impromptu VIP tour of the old Boston Arena thanks to Mike McKenney, Asst. Athletic Trainer at Northeastern University.

All in all it was an amazing weekend that adds to the many reasons I love Boston. Thanks again, Art Horne, I'm looking forward to the BSMPG Summer Seminar 2016.
