Looking forward to Advanced Integration. We had so much fun last year…..learning, pizza study parties, and even a Nebraska football game party!
Happy turkey day to all!
Eric Pinkall, PT, PRC was among the speakers to present at the Omaha Sports Medicine Alliance - 2010 Symposium held on November 13th. Eric discussed “Evaluation of the Hip: A Postural Restoration Approach” and was kind enough to share a outline of his presentation with us. Click here to read more! Thank you Eric for your support of PRI through clinical education in our community!
This email and photo from Lynne Ellen Kershaw in my Monday morning inbox - it’s sure to be a great week!
“Hey Janie- I have a class for athletes on Sunday afternoons. We always start off with PRI exercises before we do Pilates. They absolutely love blowing up the balloons! The guys in the picture are playing football right now and heading into basketball. Thought you might like! - LE”

We are often asked by PRI clinicians for recommended articles to share with the dentists and optometrists with whom they integrate. Ron Hruska recommends THIS article from the Journal of Clinical Pediatric Dentistry. The discussion in this article provides an excellent introduction to our 2011 Interdisciplinary Integration course!
The Postural Restoration Institute has long been recognized as an approved provider of continuing education for certified athletic trainers through the BOC, and more recently a few select PRI courses have been approved for strength and conditioning coaches through the NSCA. In response to the growing interest in PRI amongst these two different groups, we recently formed a Committee of five respected individuals.
Mike Arthur, Jason Masek, Michael Mullen, Chris Poulin and Jerry Weber met for the first time on Friday, August 27th to discuss avenues for advancement of Postural Restoration concepts in these specific professions. Their input is invaluable and their commitment commendable. I encourage you to read each member’s biography and learn of their exemplary experience and involvement. They have been pioneers in their professions and are now assisting us in furthering our vision for integration.
We look forward to sharing with you the Committee recommendations as they continue to collaborate in their unprecedented integration of PRI in athletic training and strength and conditioning.
We are getting excited for another year of PRC applications! The deadline of September 15th will soon be here. If you are planning to apply, please let me know. I would welcome the opportunity to speak to you about the application and testing process and answer any questions you might have.
In light of the fact that we will not be having the October 22-23 course for teams of therapists and dentists my thought is to form a study club. I believe it would be an excellent format for dentists to increase their knowledge of what we do as a team. For more information or to join the study group, please email me. Please be sure to type “PRI Dental Study Club” in the subject line of your email.
