Ron and I spent 2 days last week working on the new CD’s that we hope to have completed by the end of the year.  Several people have inquired about the new CD’s.  Let me tell you what I know up until this point…
The CD’s will be different than what we currently have on our shelves.  There will be 3 new CD’s that compliment our 3 pre-requisite courses:  Myokinematic Restoration, Pelvis Restoration and Postural Respiration.  On these 3 CD’s you will find a Re-positioning program, Desirable muscle programs, Inhibition as related to the course and Integration.  All of our activity will now be found on one of these 3 CD’s.  When taking our Secondary courses (Impingement and Instability, Cervical-Cranio-Mandibular Restoration, Advanced Integration), you will have already received the activity that corresponds to these courses through the pre-requisite courses.  In addition to the layout of the CD’s being different, we have also added roughly 200 new techniques. 

Again, our hope is to have these completed by the end of the year.  We have spent HOURS working on the placement, progression, and wording on each and every technique but we still have a lot of work ahead of us.

Ron taught Cervical-Cranio-Mandibular Restoration in Loveland, Colorado this past weekend.  The great people at Rebound Sports and Physical Therapy gave him this x-ray image.  What a great picture of left anterior innominate rotation with compensatory left femoral acetabular external rotation!

If you are a member of the Journal of Cranio Mandibular Practice you have probably read the July issue titled “Multidisciplinary”.  This issue covers how crucial it is to integrate with other disciplines to achieve the most desirable outcome for the patient.  In addition, there is a spectacular editorial written by Dr. Gerald Murphy on how necessary he has found the multidisciplinary approach to be in his practice.  After reading the editorial Ron Hruska felt compelled to write the author and share a few comments with him:

“Just read the July issue of The Journal of Craniomandibular Practice and wanted to write and tell you how much I enjoyed reading your segment on Dry Bones.  I have always tried to integrate disciplinary medicine and dentistry in my practice and always remember that each of our disciplines have limitations.  Really feel like you hit a home run on this piece.”

We received this from a therapist practicing PRI in Colorado:

“Hi all, I wanted to send along some information that I was amazed by.  I have integrated the PRI concepts into my practice over the past year and have been thrilled with the results that I have seen.

I recently treated a 13 year old female that came to me with right sided low back pain and a 17 degree scoliotic curve.  After working with her over the course of 5-6 sessions, she returned to her M.D. for a follow up and x-rays, only to discover that her scoliotic curve decreased to 14 degrees.  She has overall decreased pain and improved alignment.

Thank you for giving us the tools to help people like this!  It makes my job so much more rewarding to be able to effectively treat patients.”

We received some feedback from the first person that purchased a PRI Illustration:

“I just received the artwork today and it looks amazing!!! I really didn’t expect the print to have such great detail!  Thanks for the opportunity to post up some great PRI artwork! As you can see it looks great in my office and is a great conversation starter for Postural Restoration.” - Josh Owen LAT, ATC

While working on the new Non-Manual Techniques CD-ROM we realized that we only have 5 activities that inhibit the anterior neck.  It is extremely difficult to shut off an anterior neck in an upright position, therefore, the only position you can place the patient in is supine.  Since you can’t expect your patient to live their life in supine, Visual Integration becomes necessary for individuals who are unable to inhibit their anterior neck during upright, dynamic activity.  This will be heavily discussed in the upcoming Postural-Visual Integration course!  To register for this course, CLICK HERE!
