"A PRI Approach to Chiropractic Alignment of The Spine", was presented by Ron Hruska on March 10th at the ACA Rehab Council! The two days prior to this presentation were as significant as the topics being discussed. What culminated as a room full of Chiropractic Doctors Blowing up a Balloon, started with collaborative discussions revolving around concepts such as rotation, orientation, respiration and, perhaps most prevalent, alignment of the spine. Coincidentally these concepts aligned themselves well with what was already being discussed by other vendors, presenters and most importantly Students.

After recently attending the APTA Combined Sections and then two months later this conference, it is apparent that the desire to collaborate and integrate among professions is at an all-time high! The students of these organizations are approaching their careers with an Integrative mindset and an overall interest in collaboration. Ron enjoyed discussing the future of this integrative approach with each of the student chiropractors in attendance and was able to show the powerful potential that PRI has within their profession. The group from Keiser University had a strong student presence and a few poster presentations even discussed topics such as the “Zone of Apposition” and Respiration as primary concepts! It was so awesome to see this PRI activity occurring without previous knowledge or awareness of its incurrence!

On the second day we were met by PRI Faculty member Dr. Robert “Skip” George, which allowed us to strengthen the Link between the Director of our Institute, a Physical Therapist, and the Chiropractors in attendance. Skip is a walking Reference Center of clinical knowledge and experience, and his input within our discussions was unprecedented. PRI truly is a common language that can be used and utilized by us all, not just one group or another. This particular group of Rehab professionals understood that long before our arrival.

They were not only excited and welcoming of our Institute but embraced the collaboration and encouraged it within their own organization. It was quite frankly refreshing to be a part of. With Ron’s presentation falling on the last day of this conference we were excited to see how many attendees stayed around to hear the culmination of Ron’s career. Skip gave a wonderful introduction about his relationship with Ron and this Institute to over 60 filled seats! PRI objective testing and core concepts were strengthened and the use of a few Non-Manual techniques allowed the group to appreciate the ability to integrate it into their daily practice.

Thank you to President Dr. Jeff Tucker, and everyone at the American Chiropractic Association Rehab Council for inviting us to this symposium. I would encourage anyone that appreciates this Science to strongly consider reaching out to an integrative minded Chiropractor in their area to collaborate with, converse with and possibly be challenged by, in order to strengthen the relationship between us all! We are excited for the future growth and collaboration between our organizations, and are hopeful that your patients and clients will see a direct increase in their results!

Last weekend I enjoyed a warm welcome in the warm climate of New Mexico that provided a welcomed pause in the coldest winter in my state since 1931. Truly can’t thank Nancy Allen and the attendees at UNM Lovelace Rehab Hospital in Albuquerque for their time, energy and attendance to the many details and nuances of Pelvis Restoration. With nearly all course attendees attending their first Pelvis Restoration course and the majority attending their first PRI course, this was a unique opportunity for this instructor to be able to gear the course slightly more focally to a specific perspective.

This entire group embraced tangible lab time and during labs we had the opportunity to look at many facilitation techniques and demonstrate a series of inhibition techniques for those whose 8 Pelvis Restoration special tests revealed specific need for inhibition in 4 quadrants of the pelvis, two in the inlet and outlet respectively. Thanks to Colin Kidwell, Mary Claire “Intensity” Aaron, “athletic play Ben” Hendricks, Amy Link and nearly every attendee for volunteering for demonstrations for everything from a posterior mediastinum with volume to a left posterior outlet in need of inhibition.

Case studies and application questions abounded and there were many discussing integration concepts, feeling the principles of Pelvis PRI while practicing techniques intermittently throughout the back half of day two…reminding me how much I enjoy seeing the eyes of new attendees light up when the science of PRI “clicks” for the first time.

 Thanks again Nancy for staying the course with PRI and providing a great weekend of learning for all of us. Warm weekend on many fronts!

I headed to Philadelphia this past weekend and actually went to Cherry Hill, New Jersey to teach one of my absolute favorite classes: Impingement and Instability. There were 20 of us at TTR performance (The Training Room Physical Therapy) where Nick Perugini DPT, CSCS and Ryan Wolff, DPT played host and made sure that we were well taken care of. This was my first time and TTR and the facility is huge!

PRI Impingment & Instability course. The training room, Cherry Hill, NJ

New Jersey and the Philly area are becoming a strong hot bed of PRI as the area continues to grow steadily in this knowledge. The folks in the class were switched-on and asked tons of questions as we moved through the material that focuses on a deep understanding of ground-up sensation and the use of neurological "reference centers" in the human form to aid in repositioning, establishment of neutrality, and repatterning/retraining.

PRI Impingement and Instability course

we moved through management of impingement areas in the ankle, knees, hips and shoulders. We covered the concept that most folks really WANT to impinge! if you can't eliminate the desire to impinge then you will never reduce patient symptoms. We debunked myths through citation of multiple research articles that help the learner understand WHY we do what we do in PRI. if you have never taken this class before, I strongly urge you to consider getting signed up for it. it is truly a game changer for all who complete this rigorous material. I teach this next in in August in Austin, TX but James is teaching it in April and June in NC and IL. Ron is doing it in Germany in September! Get registered!

I had a great time this weekend teaching Myokinematics of the Hip and Pelvis at Body Dynamics in Falls Church, VA. I grew up not far from Falls Church and my college roommate lives in Rockville MD. I got to spend some time with an old friend and teach a course that I consider an old friend. Myokin is a great course to start a PRI journey and that is exactly what 90% of my course attendees were experiencing. We took an OBER and Thomas Test and turned them from orthopedic soft tissue tests to the neuro respiratory positional tests as they provide clinical evidence of an asymmetrical pattern.

PRI Myokinematic Restoration Course Demonstration

There was as much fog in the room at 4:00pm on Saturday as there was on my drive up to VA on Friday night! But… by Sunday at 5pm the sun was out and the connections in their new PRI minds were clear as the weather outside!

PRI is an integrated science and Myokin of the hip and pelvis is just one piece of an integrated system. But what would a Diaphragm be without a solid pelvic base and a good appreciation of AFIR in stance and AFER in swing!

I was honored to have Dr. Felix Liao, DDS author of “6 foot Tiger in a 3-foot cage”! Dr. Liao considers himself an airway mouth dentist. He was in attendance to understand the perspective of the PRI therapist, so he can better understand the neuro mechanics of PRI and how he can better help patients integrate!

Jennifer Gamboa, Lisa Clarkson and the entire staff of Body Dynamics welcomed all of us to their clinic. These professionals all work well together and it was so fun to watch how they picked right up on PRI methods. Lisa had been exposed to PRI out in Seattle as a student. She did a great job hosting us this weekend!

This class kept me on my toes and asked awesome questions to better understands how to integrate PRI into the current practice. I always enjoy teach Myokinematics of the Hip and Pelvis. It helps further stabilize my own clinical practice and reinforce the importance of sound PRI fundamentals in my treatment plan.
