Read more about Ron's talk:

You expanded the dental arches, inserted a well fitted oral appliance for sleep and/or TMJ …. the patient is better ….. but something is still missing. It could be airway mal-alignment due to cervical dysfunction, cortical visual processing, asymmetrical postural patterning or a combination of all three. Did you know that the way your airway functions and the way you breathe reflect the foot you like to stand on? The position of the neck affects the airway.

Ron Hruska, founder of the Postural Restoration Institute, will introduce you to new and exciting concepts that incorporate vision, posture, and occlusion for more optimal airway function. Any practitioner treating airway must attend this webinar.

Ron Hruska, MPA, PT, has a strong interest in myokinematic and biomechanical influences on postural and peripheral adaptation patterns. His 32 years of clinical experience assists him with direct patient interventions based on specific examination and evaluation data that best reflects neuromechanical stability, trunk symmetry and respiratory balance. He lectures extensively and consults regularly with physicians, physical therapists, optometrists, dentists, and other health care providers across the United States and internationally on patterned postural position and pathology and his approach of restoring symmetrical balance using PRI principles. His reputation has led to consultations with collegiate and professional athletes from a variety of arenas, states and countries. He is a graduate of the University of Nebraska Medical Center, Division of Physical Therapy. He currently is a member of the American Physical Therapy Association. Ron serves as a Biomechanical Consultant to the University of Nebraska-Lincoln through the Division of Athletic Medicine. He has patented Prism and Priori PRI Aquatic systems. He is co-founder of PRI Vision, LLC. He is Director of the Postural Restoration Institute ® and consults and practices at the Hruska Clinic, Restorative Physical Therapy Services, and PRI Vision Clinic in Lincoln, Nebraska.

We recently were made aware of four journal articles that use PRI techniques to study the effects that they have on lumbopelvic pain, knee osteoarthritis pain, illiotibial band tightness and chronic low back pain. We are excited to see the growth in research for techniques that PRI Therapists have been using clinically for years. All of the articles below are available free of charge.

    We are excited to announce and congratulate our Postural Restoration Trained (PRT) Class of 2018! PRT is the result of completing multiple advanced PRI courses, demonstrating a thorough understanding of the science through completion of the PRT application, and successfully participating in practical and analytical testing. This past weekend, four professionals earned the designation of Postural Restoration Trained (PRT) under the direction of Ron Hruska, Neil Rampe and Jennifer Platt.

    The Postural Restoration Institute® established this credentialing process in 2011 as a way to recognize and identify individuals with advanced training, extraordinary interest and devotion to the science of postural adaptations, asymmetrical patterns and the influence of polyarticular chains of muscles on the human body as defined by the Postural Restoration Institute®.  The PRT credential is available to Certified Athletic Trainers, Certified Athletic Therapists, Exercise Physiologists and Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialists who have completed the course requirements, application and testing process. With the addition of this class, there are now 50 PRT professionals throughout the U.S and Internationally.

    PRT credentialed athletic trainers, strength and conditioning coaches and exercise physiologists offer a unique approach to physical medicine and fitness called Postural Restoration®. This approach addresses underlying biomechanics which can often lead to symptoms of pain and dysfunction. All mechanical influences on the body that restrict movement and contribute to improper joint and muscle position are considered, examined, and assessed. Techniques are utilized to restore proper alignment of the body while proper respiratory dynamics are considered. Management encompasses prevention and lifetime integration for long-term successful outcomes.

    We are excited to announce and congratulate the Postural Restoration Certified (PRC) Class of 2017! PRC credentialing is the result of completing multiple advanced PRI courses, demonstrating a thorough understanding of the science through completion of the PRC application, and successfully participating in practical and analytical testing.

    The Postural Restoration Institute established a certification process in 2004 as a way to recognize and identify those individuals with advanced training, extraordinary interest and devotion to the science of postural adaptations, asymmetrical patterns and the influence of polyarticular chains of muscles on the human body as defined by the Postural Restoration Institute. The PRC credentialing program is available to physical therapists, physical therapist assistants, occupational therapists, and chiropractors who have attended PRI courses, demonstrated a thorough understanding of the science through completion of the PRC application, and successfully participate in both clinical and analytical testing. To date, 189 professionals have earned the designation of Postural Restoration Certified (PRC).
