There is so much to consider when one focuses on the interplay between our autonomic nervous system, our somatic nervous system and our central nervous system. And, there is so much to get excited about when the interplay of these systems can be modified, re-integrated, re-oriented and re-calibrated through oscillation of novel conscious and un-conscious sensory afferentation. Our behavior, i.e. psychology of the conscious, revolves and resolves around fluctuation of brain lateralization, hemispheric specialization, dominance (subjective experience) as it relates to our brain’s individual unique asymmetrical and emotional processing. (page 31 of Cranial Resolution). According to the authors of ‘The Intersubjective Perspective’ (thank you Michael Zhao), focus on inter-related subjective experience unveils forms and patterns that conscious experience repetitively and unconsciously assumes over time (page 101). Therefore, our subjective experience of resolving conscious experience and patterns of behavior and biology through novel integration of these three nervous systems could generate “access to the underlying structures and organizing principles and patterns that unconsciously govern psychological life”. I absolutely love discussing behavior as it relates to evidence based autonomic research. The attendees at this course in NYC gravitated towards behavior as it relates to the limitation of subjective frames of interrelated and integrated nervous systems and their respective developed references. Thank you Borbala Suranyi for being my avatar! Thank all of you in attendance who asked poignant and clinical questions. The award to the one that asked the most insightful and driving questions that pushed us into wonderful engaging response from the entire group, goes to Jeff Eckhouse. Finally, thank you Alicia Ferriere and Finish Line for hosting another PRI course in NYC. I definitely feel at home when I am there.

As we prepare for the first ever PRI Integration for Pediatrics course this October in Chapel Hill, NC it is hard not to be excited! Anyone who works with children on a daily basis knows how rewarding it can be. However, when it comes to getting them to exhale into a balloon, or squeeze a ball between their knees it can become challenging very quickly. Lisa Mangino, PT, DPT, PCS, C/NDT, PRC has spent countless hours considering the many ways PRI can be incorporated into a Pediatric setting, and through the creation of this particular Affiliate course we can all learn her intervention stragies which she applies to a younger population of patients.

Check out the video below for a sneak peak of some of the ways Lisa incorporates PRI into her practice!

And for more information about this course as well as the dates and locations it is being held, check out the PRI Integration for Pediatrics course page!

Had a beautiful weekend with Kasey Aikin, DPT, PRC in my home state of Nevada teaching Myokinematic Restoration to a really great group. A big thank you to our generous host at the University of Nevada Sports Medicine, Jay Henke, M.Ed, LAT, ATC. He made us feel right at home in every way and even provided me with a list of his favorite local places to eat, which is a treat for a foodie like me. The University of Nevada Reno is nestled in the mountains and foothills of northwest Nevada, which is something you really need to see if you haven't been. As an alumni of the University of Nevada, I have really come to appreciate the northwestern Nevada beauty of Reno, Carson City and Lake Tahoe. Returning to my home state helped me again appreciate all the great people who live there.

And it was a treat to be able to co-teach with the newest PRI faculty member in training, Kasey Aikin, DPT, PRC. She does a great job with the Myokinematic Restoration course material and is really able to connect with the class attendees. She is from the great state of Texas and she brings a hospitality all her own wherever she goes. It was an honor to get to team-teach this course with her and to get to both teach and learn from her this weekend. She reaffirmed what I already knew about our PRI Faculty, that we are all unique with our own unique gifts, attributes and passions that allow us to connect in special ways with a variety of course attendees. Kasey is definitely passionate and she made the course experience great for everyone in attendance.

This Myokinematic Restoration course material is really useful for all types of clinicians as well as sports medicine and strength and conditioning professionals for a variety of reasons. First, it outlines which muscles are needed for non-compensatory gait mechanics when in the Left AIC Pattern and what the specific deficits are on each side. Second, it explains and outlines the use of Ligamentous Muscle as a powerful resource for stabilizing hip joint or pelvis instabilities. And third, it provides 2 powerful resources, The Hruska Adduction Lift Test and the Hruska Abduction Lift Test, to monitor pelvic and hip gait performance in all 3 dimensions.

I was first drawn to the science of Postural Restoration via the material in this course. It challenged my thinking and gave me a structural framework for prescribing movement and outlining performance that I rely on heavily to this day. The course is a great introduction to PRI for people from all backgrounds and it remains one of my favorite to review, utilize and teach.

Those of you who have been around for a while now hopefully recognize the family nature surrounding our Institute. Our faculty are like family to us, our credentialed providers are a family and quite honestly all of you, #PRINation, are one big family.

Families support one another, in any way possible. It’s for that reason that we want to share with you the fight that one of our closest family member’s is currently battling. On June 3rd, faculty member Jesse Ham’s daughter, Jenna, was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoid Leukemia (ALL). She has spent much of the past two months at Sanford Children’s Hospital in Sioux Falls (5 hours from home). Jenna is a fighter and her faith is strong, as is the case for her entire family.

Please keep Jesse, Jenna and the entire Ham family in your thoughts and prayers. If you are interested in following Jenna’s story and her courageous fight with ALL, a Caringbridge page has been set up. In addition, a GoFundMe account has also been organized to help their family get through this battle which has presented several hurdles financially, if you feel the desire to help further.

Thank you #PRINation for being a part of our Institute’s family!
