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.

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.


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!

Ron had a chance to respond to a recent email question regarding the respiratory mechanics when doing the left Sidelying Respriatory Scissor Slides. As you might have noticed in the handout for this technique, the respiratory mechanics are different for the left and right sidelying positions. CLICK HERE to learn more about this technique!

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.
