After fielding a couple questions about the PRI Vision Integration for the Baseball Player course I felt like I still didn’t have a grasp of what the course actually was. I scheduled a time with Dr. Heidi Wise to talk about some of the concepts in the one day course.  While I was with her for about an hour and a half she was able to teach me some of the visual integration and training that will be taught. All of the things that you will be learning the first two days in the PRI Integration for Baseball will directly tie into the Visual Integration course. If you are having an athlete that is not getting better with the exercises there may be a visual component that is the missing link. Specific visual integration activities in this course will be used to get around the limits for many athletes.

One of the things I learned about was how well the PRI Vision Integration for the Baseball Player goes hand and hand with all of the other PRI concepts I have been learning. It can directly impact all three planes of movement. I felt it first hand with a Peripheral Visual Awareness (side vision) activity, this is the first concept that will be taught. These activities will give the visual pathway a chance to wire the body to move in a correct movement pattern and keep vision from being a limit. The second activity was Visual Relaxation. I experienced how the posture of the body can change through the visual system focusing or relaxing activity. The third activity looked at Eyes moving independently of the head.  In this section, muscle movement of the eyes and the head in common baseball positions that may cause the athlete to go into extension how to decrease this response will be discussed.

If these visual concepts are integrated and you are still not seeing progress there will be some next steps to determine what kind of visual intervention they need next. You will not need a team doctor to do these activities. An athletic trainer, strength coach or physical therapist would have no problem teaching them.  After the time I spent with her, I am confident that I would be able to integrate some of the visual activities with baseball athletes.

Taught Myokin in Santa Cruz
The group was so smart, couldnt lose!
Knowledge is power
It grew hour by hour
And Matthew Tripp didn't snooze!!!

Had a great weekend on the west coast. The class photo is a selfie i took during a "breakout session" on Sunday. The groups were trouble-shooting a case that i presented. They came up with all the right answers. The other photo is outside "Betty's Eat Inn" at lunch on Saturday in Santa Cruz. Thanks to Carrie Robinson, DPT for taking the shot. After lunch, I bought two of their T-shirts; one for me and one for my daughter Betty. Wore mine on sunday by request!!!  What a great bunch and what a nice weekend in Santa Cruz. Thank you Jonathan Holtz: A great host and a stand-up guy!!!
