The PRI Board of Director's are excited to announce that Certified Athletic Therapists, certified through the Canadian Athletic Therapists Association (CATA) are now eligible to apply for the Postural Restoration Trained (PRT) credentialing program. For those who may not be familiar with Certified Athletic Therapists in Canada, their education and training is very similar to Certified Athletic Trainers in the United States, who are certified through the Board of Certification. In fact, they have a Mutual Recognition Aggreement between these two organizations. With the growing interest of Postural Restoration in Canada, we look forward to having Certified Athletic Therapists join the growing list of PRT professionals!

If you are a Certified Athletic Therapist, and would like to learn more about the PRT credentialing program, click here or email me!

Have you ever struggled to explain to a colleague, patient, family member or friend what the Postural Restoration Institute is? If so, you will love this new video that we have created. While it was a couple years in the making, it turned out great, and kudos to Matt Hornung for finishing up this project over the past few months! Hope you enjoy it!

Dr. Todd Stull is our next speaker spotlight for our upcoming Interdisciplinary Integration Symposium. Dr. Stull, founder of Inside Performance Mindroom, holds a Doctor of Medicine (MD) degree from the University of Nebraska Medical Center and is a board certified psychiatrist in Addiction Medicine as well as General and Addiction Psychiatry. He is a former high school and college football quarterback (Hastings College) and has spent a number of years working with college athletes while serving as Consulting Sport Pyschiatrist at the University of Nebraska Lincoln and Creighton Athletic Departments.

As a performance performance psychiatrist, Dr. Stull has worked with athletes, corporate executives and physicians to identify and address psychological, interpersonal and wellness needs through mental skills training. To optimize health, improve performance and managae psychiatric symptoms while operating whithin an interdisciplinary team, Dr. Stull often treats mental health and substance related problems. Here is what Dr. Stull has to say regarding his upcoming presentations at the Interdisciplinary Integration Symposium on April 16017th:

"Top performers are driven by a clear vision based on their passion, desires and strengths. Vision leads to peak performance only when aligned with supporting thoughts, emotions and behaviors. By developing mental routines, brain training skills and feedback processes, athletes and teams can successfully match their mental game to their vision. Many barriers stand in the way of peak performance – lack of confidence or emotional maturity, communication differences, relationship difficulties, mental health and substance issues, parental interference and stress. The mind-body connection is the foundation for the upcoming presentation at PRI on April 16-17, 2015.  By integrating neurobiological and psychological skills and science-based  tools, you will learn to access the power of your mind to enhance performance."

Dallas Wood, ATC, CSCS, PRT and Zachary Nott, CSCS, SCCC, PRT are the next speakers featured in our speaker spotlight for the upcoming Interdisciplinary Integration Symposium on April 16-17th in Lincoln! Dallas and Zach will be presenting on two related topics: “Integrating Limitations for Required Optimal Human Performance” and “Safely Strengthening and Conditioning Those Who Function in ‘Un-Safe’ Situations”.

These two human performance specialists utilize their expertise as Postural Restoration Trained (PRT) professionals working with the Department of Defense. Integrating PRI into training with the operators they work with is not always an easy process, however they have found success, and their knowledge on these topics is something you will not want to miss. Here is what they had to say about their upcoming presentations:

“Integrating Limitations for Required Optimal Human Performance”

When your client can't or won't control their extension bias, you need an integrated approach to help them get the most out of performance. Creating an environment to effectively utilize multiple disciplines to help your client perform optimally maybe what is required. Integrating limitations to move them forward can give them the reference points to be successful.

“Safely Strengthening and Conditioning Those Who Function in ‘Un-Safe’ Situations”

Is an extended system always suboptimal? In certain specialized populations, patterns that the clinician or trainer would normally abstain from may be unavoidable. Certain strategies can be used to prepare a client for activities that require or encourage extension, as well as allow them to manage this pattern when at rest.
