PRI is excited to announce that we will have a Japanese microsite being launched soon! In July, two Myokinematic Restoration courses will be taught in Japan, and we are excited about the future growing of the science of Postural Restoration® in Japan! The microsite should be launched in the next couple weeks, and course registration for the July 19-20th course in Osaka, Japan and the July 25-26th course in Tokyo, Japan will be available at that time. These two courses will be taught in Japanese by Sayuri Abe-Hiraishi and Kentaro Ishii. Each course attendee will receive a course manual which includes both English and Japanese text.

ついにPRIウェブサイトの日本語版ページがオープンします!今年の7月には大阪・東京の二会場でのマイオキネマティック・リストレーション講習会開催も決定し、より多くの日本の皆様にもPRIを知って頂く機会を設けられることを非常に嬉しく思っています。日本語版ウェブページはあと2-3週間で完成の予定で、このページを通じて7月19-20日の大阪会場、7月25-26日の東京会場での講演の登録申し込みが可能になります。これらの講習会は日本人講師(阿部さゆり、石井健太郎)によって完全日本語で行われ、講習で使うマニュアルは英語オリジナルと日本語の翻訳版との両方で書かれています。

I am so excited to be making the trip with them to Japan this summer! If you have any questions about the upcoming courses in Japan, be sure to email me or Sayuri!

私も阿部・石井両氏とこの夏日本に行くのを楽しみにしています!日本での講習開催についてご質問等ありましたら、私に英語でメールを頂くか、日本語対応の方が簡単でしたら阿部さゆりへお気軽にご連絡下さい。

Bill Hartman is one of the nine speakers lined up for the Annual Interdisciplinary Integration course this April 16-17th!  Bill will be speaking on “Practical Application of Neuroscience for High Powered Performers”.  Here is what Bill has to say about this topic:

“The mantra in my training facility IFAST is that ‘we don’t train bodies, we train brains.’  The explosion of neuroscience research confirms the dependence of body and brain functioning as one.  This unified model of behavior drives the high-powered performer time and time again to seek the elusive flow state where skills are demonstrated at their peak yet seem effortless.  Achieving these peak experiences relies on the management of central and peripheral bioplasticity of every integrated subsystem determined by appropriate coaching, training, and restorative means.”

Bill Hartman, PT is co-owner of Indianapolis Fitness and Sport Training and IFAST Physical Therapy.  He has over 25 years of experience in the rehabilitation, fitness, and sports performance fields at all levels of experience and competition.  His treatment approach and clinical success has made Bill an in-demand clinical instructor for physical therapy students from all over the country with many of his students going on to successful careers in a variety of environments including professional sports.  Bill has been featured on numerous national publications and sits on the Advisory Board for Men’s Health Magazine.  He also is currently participating in formal research interests that include the influence of the nervous systems on movement and performance.

We are excited to announce more information for the next year's Annual Interdisciplinary Integration Symposium! SAVE THE DATE now for April 16-17, 2015, at the Cornhursker Marriott Hotel in downtown Lincoln, NE!

The title for this year's symposium is Exension Powered People: Managing Self-Efficacy Through Integration. This 7th Annual Interdisciplinary Integration Symposium will bring together nine speakers from seven different disciplinary perspectives to share their expertise and experience on working with people who are driven to exceed, excel and excite at the expense of overextending their psychological and physiological systems.They will reflect on the behavior of these “extension powered people” and discuss and demonstrate operational treatment and intervention concepts and guidelines to reduce self-induced “need” for autonomic force.The participant will learn how to recognize conditions and factors that lead to unrealistic or unnecessary functional performance levels, that are often self-imposed or induced.Addressing powered behavior and poorly optimized mindsets through sports performance, vision and sports psychology intervention will allow the participant to complete realistic functional goals with those who will need to maintain supra-active extended systems to complete required personal outcomes and expectations, regardless of the complexity and realism of the task.Cranial occlusion with the atlas and oral occlusion influences on the posterior neuromuscular pattern of extension will be addressed, which will compliment discussion of how to safely strengthen and condition those who function in un-safe situations with the same extension pattern.Each of the speakers will apply neuroscience applications to conditions that relate to and reflect the high powered performer.

Speakers include:
Ron Hruska, MPA, PT
Heidi Wise, OD, FCOVD
Todd Stull, M.D., FAPA
Tracy Heller, Ph.D., CC-AASP
Tim Miles, Head Basketball Coach University of Nebraska-Lincoln
Margo Schnell, DDS
Bill Hartman, PT, CSCS
Dallas Wood, ATC, CSCS
Zachary Nott, CSCS, SCCC, PRT

The new Hamstring Protonic System (Protonics X1 System) is now available for purchase online. For those who might not be familiar with the Hamstring Protonic System, it was originally developed and patented by Ron Hruska in 1995 and has been used by clinicians for many years in treatment of patello-femoral pain, SI joint pain and many other symptoms related to the Left AIC pattern. Click here to access more information written by Ron Hruska on when a Hamstring Protonic System might be recommended.

PRC therapist Lisa Bartels recently submitted a letter with us sharing her excitement for the return of the Hamstring Protonic System as well as more information. There is also a special discounted program being offered for Postural Restoration Certified (PRC) and Postural Restoration Trained (PRT) professionals.
