It's that time of the year again! I just received my first PRC application in the mail! Reminder that the Postural Restoration Certified (PRC) deadline is less than a month away, September 15th, and since it will likely be another large group, we will limit the credentialing program to the first 30 applicants. Two copies of each application (including full text of the articles used in the article review portion) must be mailed to PRI, and received by September 15th to be considered for testing this December.

Are you planning to apply this year? If you are preparing your application, and have any questions, please call or email me!

Yesterday, we finished up day 2 of the first PRI course, Myokinematic Restoration held in Japan! The course was was taught by Sayuri Abe-Hiraishi and Kentaro Ishii, and there was a lot of excitement in the room, and the attendees left eager to take future PRI courses! It was a large course with 50 attendees, including Certified Athletic Trainers, PT's, OT's, Certified Strength and Conditioning Coaches, Personal Trainers, Judo Therapists, Jasa AT's, and other healthcare and fitness professionals. The course awarded CEU's through the BOC for Certified Athletic Trainers, and through NSCA Japan for Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialists and Certified Personal Trainers. Thank you to Sy and Kenny for all of their hard work, passion and pride for PRI over the past year with translation of the manual, and training to teach this course. And, a big thank you to Takuto Kondo and Takashi Onuki for lab asssiting. The dream on taking PRI to Japan is now reality, and we are looking forward to the upcoming course this weekend in Tokyo, and additional courses in the next year!

Two weeks ago, we travelled to St. Louis, MO for the 66th Annual NATA Clinical Symposia & Expo. Matt and I had a great time meeting nearly 600 Athletic Trainers at our PRI booth. There is a lot of excitement for PRI in the Athletic Training field, especially having Evidence Based Practice (EBP) CEUs for Myokinematic Restoration, and more courses to come!

I also had the opportunity to present at this conference for the first time. The topic of my presentation, "The Influence of Pelvis Position on Hamstring Injuries: To Stretch or To Strengthen" drew around 450 people into the room, with standing room only. For those who were unable to get into my presentation, they will have the opportunity to listen to it on the NATA Online CEU Center in the near future. I have also attached my presentation handouts HERE!

Dan Houglum, MSPT, ATC/L, PRC also presented at this year's conference. The title of Dan's presentation was "Asymmetrical Posture and Common Pain Related Syndromes". He also had a nearly full room, with Athletic Trainer's eager to learn more about PRI. Dan is also willing to share his presentation handouts, which I have attached HERE!

For those of you who haven't heard, PRI is expanding, and ground breaking for the new PRI Headquarters building took place today, with anticipated completion in early 2016! The building will be just across the parking lot from the current location. In addition to a larger office space, we will also be able to hold up to 120 people in our new, state of the art course space! Here are some ground breaking photos, along with the architectural drawing for the building design. I look forward to sharing more photos as progress continues!

The second quarter PRC/PRT Update email was sent out yesterday. Please check your emails, and if you did not receive it, please email me to let me know! Also, if you are having trouble opening the links to attached documents in the email, it may be due to your email server blocking them for security purposes (this has occurred with a couple work/university domain emails). If this is happening, please contact me with a different email address that I can re-send the email to. Have a great weekend!

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!
