Lori Thomsen, MPT, PRC recently went out and looked at the newest shoes on the market.  Using her PRI perspective, she put together a list of her top recommendations.  You can look at her list and watch a video about her selections HERE!

*Please note that this list is only a suggestion and may not be the case for everyone.  If you question a certain shoe, we suggest that you test your patient’s neutrality with and without the shoe on to make a proper assessment.

Jennifer Poulin, PT, PRC sent us an article today that was published in the Lower Extremity Review magazine.

“There is a nice article on lower body mechanics of softball pitching.  I just read it and it is all about obtaining a neutral pelvis and powering the pitch with the glutes as well as the importance of lumbo-pelvic stability as a foundation of rehab and injury prevention in athletes.  Although the focus is on neutrality via the core not the hamstrings it does support a myokin model of securing the pelvis before the scapula can be in the proper position.”

I am excited to finally discuss the latest project that Ron Hruska and I have been working on.  We are creating new exercise CD’s that will compliment our coursework.  Because this is such a lengthy process, I have been keeping it quiet until I could see an end in sight.  The expected completion will be the end of summer.  The new CD’s will be a little different than what we have created in the past.  We have taken the time to break up each CD to reflect each specific course.  In addition to breaking up all of the activities we currently have to compliment each course, we are adding a ton of new ones.  Stay tuned for the completed project!

This is the most recent article being added to PRI’s library.  This article was just published in the JOSPT journal in May.  “This article reported on patients with clinical evidence of an acetabular labrum tear, confirmed with MRI.  All patients responded well to a nonsurgical program that emphasized hip and lumbopelvic stabilization, correction of muscular imbalance, and sport-specific functional progression.”  If you are a member of the JOSPT, you can access the article HERE!

At the start of 2011, Ron Hruska, Michael Cantrell, James Anderson and Jen Gloystein got together and revised the PRI Treatment Guidelines for the Right BC Pattern.  This handout can be found in both the Postural Respiration and Cervical-Cranio-Mandibular Restoration course manual.  If you have been to either of these courses in the past, you will find this updated handout very helpful!
