The Postural Respiration courses have been filling up quickly this year! Don't miss out on this course in Las Vegas, NV, which is being hosted by the Cirque du Soleil Performance Medicine team at the MGM Grand on September 27-28th. Hurry and register today, as I do expect this class to fill quickly just like all the other Postural Respiration courses have this year!

It is with much excitement that we announce that chiropractors are now eligible to apply for the Postural Restoration Certified (PRC) credentialing program. This discussion began several years ago, and with an increase in interest from the chiropractic community more recently, the PRI Board of Directors made the decision to extend an invitation to chiropractors to apply for the PRC credentialing program. The Postural Restoration Certified (PRC) credentialing program began in 2004 and since that time, 123 physical therapists, occupational therapists and physical therapist assistants have been PRC credentialed.

CLICK HERE to view the PRC requirements and to download an application. PRC applications are due on September 15th, and is limited to the first 30 applicants. PRC testing takes place in Lincoln on December 8-9th, following our Advanced Integration course.

If you are interested in applying for PRC or if you have any questions about the credentialing program, please feel free to email me!

Columbus, OH - "A weekend of enlightenment and fun was had by all as Anthony Donskov hosted Myokinematic Restoration at his great facility: Donskov Strength and Conditioning.  Many new faces were exposed to the science of understanding complex human biomechanics as they relate to asymmetrical movement patterns. I had a great experience and made many new friends." - Mike Cantrell

Pittsburgh, PA - "I had a great weekend teaching an entire class of 17 newbies to the science of PRI with Myokinematic Restoration. Jeremy Smith was a great host and we all enjoyed his facility at Iron City Elite in the suburbs of Pittsburgh. It was truly an interdisciplinary meeting of PT’s, DC’s, ATC’s, CSCS’s and personal trainers. We all had a blast learning together. These individuals left excited about trying out their new knowledge of respiration and AFIR!  Yes, Ron they all  got the concept of hole control in the Iron City!  Go #prination!  It was great to see the influence of social media on the spreading of this great nation!  It was fun to meet in person some of my PRI twitter followers! "#Welcometotheforest #nogoingback @lewis61FP” One of my favorite post course tweets!" - Jen Poulin

Whittier, CA  - "This weekend I had the wonderful opportunity to present Myokinematic Restoration to a significant number of “new” PRI course attendees on the campus of Southern California University of Health Sciences, where 600 chiropractic students graduate yearly. This was a high cerebral powered group and kept me on my toes, which fueled me to the max daily.  Because of this infusion I reminded myself that our left hemispheres make all of us human. By teaching this class I once again was reminded of the human need to use our left hemispheric mindedness for Left AIC patterning. We often are encouraged to facilitate certain antagonistic muscle in PRI to oppose three planes of left hemispheric activity or the Left AIC pattern. But it is because of courses like this I get to focus on what is really important to focus on, the inhibition of Left AIC overactive muscle, so that we can involve our right hemispheric creativity and bilateral function. It was so much fun to discuss and demonstrate the need to inhibit the left gluteus maximus and the right adductor group of the leg to restore bilateral use of our bodies in the frontal plane. This Left AIC position also includes sagittal and transverse patterned muscle that needs to be inhibited for tri-planar bilateral success. Therefore, focusing on inhibition programs for the left iliacus and the  left psoas and the right bicep femoris was equally rewarding for me to think about. However, the need to disengage a left tensor fascia latae muscle that is trying to move the left acetabulum on the femur for AFIR is so important to occasionally be mindful of, just as remembering the importance of reducing the right quadratus lumborum activity that more than likely is being used in attempting to gain right acetabular external rotation on the femur (Right AFER).  I absolutely love discussing this kind of neuro integration and neuro inhibition in the facilitation of desirable lateralized direction." - Ron Hruska
 

Seattle, WA - "I enjoyed a sunny beautiful weekend teaching Myokinematic Restoration in majestic Seattle Washington with the staff from PRO Sports Club in a great facility designed for rehab, fitness and sports performance. Thanks Carl for being such a great host and for trusting me on my movie recommendations. They say it can rain a lot in Seattle, but I’ve never seen it, because it’s always sunny and beautiful when I go.

Grateful to be so well assisted by Betsy Baker-Bold, PRC from Olympic Physical Therapy and to see her be so willing to share all she knows. An open attitude with a desire to effectively mentor others has always helped make this Institute great.

We had a great time discussing hot topics like pelvic and hip position, ligamentous muscle, muscle function in three planes and human performance. Its so great to see PRI grow and expand across the Pacific Northwest with several different clinicians and clinics all jockeying to be the next host site for whatever the Institute may be planning to teach in the region". - James Anderson

The 2nd Quarter PRC and PRT Updates email has been sent out today. If you are a PRC or PRT, please check your email for the latest PRI news and updates. If you didn't receive the email, please email me!

I have extended the early registartion deadline for the June 7-8th PRI Integration for the Home course in Lincoln, NE until this Friday, May 19th! Don't miss the opportunity to take this new PRI Affiliate Course, which is summarized here by course developer and speaker James Anderson:

"The new PRI Integration for the Home course has been a wonderful resource for many populations, beyond just the geriatric patient in the home setting, including:  

  • geriatric patients in the hospital setting
  • geriatric patients in the outpatient setting
  • geriatric and other patients in a SNF setting
  • chronic and excessively painful patients with poor tolerance to traditional or other exercises

The course attendees have really benefited from the simplicity and integrated nature of these new exercises, allowing them successful and tolerable options to help them meet PRI treatment objectives. 

Loving the universal application to so many different patient groups. I look forward to teaching this class in Lincoln next month! There is still space available, so if you are interested in attending, you can call or register online!"
