Elizabeth Wheeler recently shared with us some good news! Liz is a PT who has attended PRI courses and implemented the techniques with great success. Congratulations, Liz!

Postural restoration is going to the major leagues!  I have been named the PT for the Washington Nationals baseball team!  I will be going down to spring training in Florida and have been asked to do PRI assessments on all the baseball players.  I have put together a patient questionnaire (including dental & optical history), a list of desired pictures (to compare before and after - upon completion of the season and postural restoration rehab), and a general PRI assessment form. I would like your input as to what else to include.  This information could be a golden opportunity for a ton of objective PRI info….. that I hope to turn into a published paper.  - Liz Wheeler

We all know how convenient it can be to make online purchases. We have a tip to make it even easier. PRI uses PayPal to process registrations securely. You may think that in order to use PayPal you must have a PayPal account or need to create one. But you can actually pay with a credit card without an account. 

Simply click “register” next to the date and location of the course you plan to attend. In the “payment method” field select “credit”. On the left side of the PayPal page to which you will be directed you see in bold “Don’t have a PayPal account? Use your credit card or bank account (where available). Continue”. Click “continue” to enter your credit card information and you’re done.

In many cases, the name of the registered attendee and the name of the payer may not be the same. That’s okay too. The majority of those instances are easily detected when we process your registration. If we aren’t sure, we’ll give you a call to confirm.

If you experience any difficulty just give us a call or send an email. We’ll contact you right away to address any problems. Also remember that you are welcome to pay by check or call our office to have your credit card processed directly in our office.

Postural Respiration scheduled in Loveland, CO on January 17-18 has now been confirmed. We are also extending the early registration deadline for this course to December 24th. When registering online, you will automatically be charged the late tuition rate. We will then process a refund for the difference. You can also give us a call instead of completing the online form. Hope you can make it to Loveland!

We are busy at PRI preparing for our 4-day Advanced Integration course followed by two days of Postural Restoration Certification (PRC). Fifty-two health professionals from 17 different states will all be making the trip to Lincoln, Nebraska to attend the course. Our office will be open during the course and PRC but we will be limited in the time we’re able to respond to calls and emails. It will be business as usual on Wednesday, December 10th. Next year, Advanced Integration is scheduled only once on December 3-6, 2009 with PRC testing on December 7th and 8th.

Today it is with much excitement and pride that we unveil our first international web pages. If you’re like me, the words themselves make little sense but the overall picture of PRI concepts and courses spreading further outside our national borders is very satisfying. We have much work ahead of us but the great deal that has already been accomplished could not have been at all possible without our Polish colleagues, Michal Niedzielski and Gregory Parfianowicz. Michal and Gregory will travel to Poland in March 2009 to present two courses covering material from our Myokinematic Restoration course. This endeavor has been a commitment of their time, expertise and energy and for that we are grateful. So, be sure to forward this link to all your friends in Poland!
