Ron Hruska has limited his teaching schedule over the past couple of years but remains the only instructor for Cervical-Cranio-Mandibular Restoration. His passion for cranio-mandibular dynamics and dysfunctional management date back to his first years of practice as a physical therapist and even his initial and temporary decision to enter dental school. Attending this course offers an opportunity to learn from Ron, the founder of PRI, on a personal level and interact within a small group atmosphere. Because this course requires prior attendance of Postural Respiration and is attended by those with advanced knowledge of Postural Restoration principles, the setting is generally an intimate atmosphere and a great deal of time is spent addressing the specific questions or concerns of the group. This past weekend was a prime example of such a course. With 15 attendees in the northern suburb of Chicago, Ron felt that each attendee advanced their skills tremendously and gained answers to general PRI related questions of a personal agenda.

Comments from course evaluations:
Lots of time for Ron to help each participant. Awesome course as always!!
Speaker was very thoughtful with the audience. Great course. Amazing! Thank you!
This course was the best with lab considerations of any course I’ve taken. Excellent course.

Remaining 2011 Cervical courses:
May 21-22 Chevy Chase, MD
June 11-12 Bismarck, ND
October 1-2 Loveland, CO
November 12-13 Lincoln, NE

We are thrilled that so many of you are planning to attend the upcoming Annual Interdisciplinary Integration course! The course is filling up quickly. With just 4 seats remaining, I encourage you to register soon to ensure your seat at the course. You won’t want to miss this opportunity!

“The three days will offer anyone with an interest in vision or the vestibular systems an opportunity to learn how basic cranial, cervical and thoracic mechanics can be influenced not by what we see, but by where we have to put ourselves to see it.”

“It’s been the best money I’ve ever spent on continuing education.”

CLICK HERE to read “What I learned in 2010” by Eric Cressey, CSCS.  Eric’s discussion of asymmetry learned from attending both Myokinematic Restoration and Postural Respiration has been featured by TNATION. Eric is president and co-founder of Cressey Performance near Boston, MA.  A highly sought-after coach for healthy and injured athletes alike, Eric has helped athletes at all levels – from youth sports to the professional and Olympic ranks – achieve their highest levels of performance in a variety of sports.  Behind Eric’s expertise, Cressey Performance has rapidly established itself as a go-to high performance facility among Boston athletes – and those that come from across the country and abroad to experience CP’s cutting-edge methods.  Eric is perhaps best known for his extensive work with baseball players, with more than four dozen professional players traveling to Massachusetts to train with him each off-season.

An accomplished author, Cressey has authored over 200 published articles in all.  Eric has published five books and co-created four DVD sets that have been sold in over 50 countries around the world.  Eric has been an invited guest speaker in five countries and more than one dozen U.S. states. His Master’s thesis, “The effects of 10 weeks of lower-body unstable surface training on markers of athletic performance,” was published in the Journal of Strength and Conditioning Research, and Cressey was a co-author for the International Youth Conditioning Association’s High School Strength and Conditioning Certification.

Eric’s writing and his work with athletes have been featured in such local and national publications as Men’s Health, Men’s Fitness, ESPN, T-Muscle, The Boston Globe, The Boston Herald, Baseball America, The Worcester Telegram, Perform Better, Oxygen, Experience Life, Triathlete Magazine, Collegiate Baseball,, The Metrowest Daily News, Parents and Kids, and EliteFTS.

There is always something exciting going on at the Cantrell Center! Just ask Mike Cantrell, President and Owner of the Cantrell Center, Faculty of PRI, and Postural Restoration Certified Therapist. He’s gearing up for the 3rd Annual Cantrell Center 5K in Central Georgia. In case you missed it, be sure to check out our interview with Mike where he provides insightful guidance for other PRI trained therapists in private practice and clinical discussion for prospective and current PRI course attendees.
