 I had the great privilege of changing patterns, positions and perspectives as I presented to the Vermont Youth Orchestra Association last week. This is a group of 78 of the most talented high school musicians in the state of Vermont.

As they celebrate a year of Tchaikovsky and practice his 5th symphony, we talked about playing related pain, it’s 68% prevalence in musicians 7-17 years old, spatial orientation bias, asymmetry in playing, and the importance of zones of apposition. I left them with a reference sheet of PRI prevention-based exercises in hopes of changing their fate.

On a recent trip to Manhattan with my family we went out to Ellis Island. With a brief stop at Liberty Island, I was thrilled to see such a sight from Lady Liberty's side. I was beaming when my wife asked me what I was smiling about. I pointed and said "look what leg Liberty stands on."  Auguste Bartholdi must have been a postural sculpture.

PRI goes to Sochi!

7 of the 10 athletes that comprise the USA luge team are posturally trained. Sean Fitzgerald MPT, PRC of Transitions Physical Therapy in Vermont has been working with the US luge team for the past 3 years. The challenges of a sports that is reliant on transverse power and sagittal mobility for an optimal start, followed by a ride dependent on the ability to remain as inhibited as possible lends itself very well to the postural approach.
