Ron Hruska will be traveling to Virginia Beach on January 15-16 to present Impingement & Instability. We have confirmed the course with 11 attendees. Don’t miss out on the opportunity to learn in this small course environment. You’ll have ample opportunity for question and answer discussion. Specific guidelines will be offered for assessment and treatment of calcaneal instability, knee instability, hip impingement, shoulder impingement, and multidirectional HG and FA instability. Here are a few comments from previous attendees:

Thank you for the Impingement and Instability course.  I am glad you focused on the “system” and integrating it.  I had an AHA moment and now I’m looking for what I should inhibit and use to get patients into neutral without any manual techniques.  It’s faster and easier to look for what to turn off and shut down to start retraining.

This course in some ways was more integrated than the Advanced Integration course.  I found it very useful at “pulling” together a lot of ideas and concepts.  The main concepts of calcaneal instability, patellar instability, pelvic instability and scapular instability are fantastic!

We are gearing up for the Myokinematic Restoration course being held here at PRI on October 9-10.  If you have never been to this course before, you won’t want to miss this opportunity.  We will have 3 course speakers present at this course (James Anderson, Jen Poulin, & Ron Hruska).  Having 3 speakers on site during this course will provide for excellent dialogue and very low speaker to attendee ratio.  Everyone in the room will have plenty of opportunity to learn from all 3 of these experienced individuals as well as get all of your questions answered!  Early registration ends Friday September 10th so register soon!

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.

Thanks, 
Dr. Mike Hoefs

We have updated our website with information regarding Day 4 of the Interdisciplinary Integration course.  Day 4 will be covering REST INTEGRATION.  We are very excited for this course as this will be the 1st year we have presented on this topic. 

This session will review sleep architecture and sleep hygiene.  An overview of polysomnography (sleep readings) will be discussed to allow the clinician to understand these findings and how they relate to the rehabilitation client.  The importance of NREM (non-rapid eye movement) sleep stages on motor function and motor processing and learning will be discussed.  Neurohormonal events particular to specific sleep stages will be presented.  Pharmaceutical management and the use of mechanical devices including CPAP for treatment of disordered sleep will be discussed briefly, but will not be the primary aim of this session.  The mechanics of respiration, including upper airway function, as it occurs in normal sleep and disordered sleep will be presented.  This will include a discussion of the influence of movement patterns that may be adopted to establish and maintain a patent airway during sleep, especially in disordered sleep.  A discussion of both obstructive sleep apnea and central apnea will be included.  Dental sleep medicine and intervention, including the reasoning for and use of mandibular advancement devices will be covered.  Methods of screening for sleep dysfunction in the clinical setting and guidelines for when to recommend additional evaluation will be covered.  Recommendations for inter-disciplinary collaboration (including pulmonology, behavioral medicine, dentistry and rehabilitation) with the individual with disorderd sleep will be discussed.

We are gearing up for our 4 day Interdisciplinary Integration course April 14-17, 2010.  Day one will be spent on the foot!  Curt Johnson, PT will be presenting part of the day and he wanted to share a few words with everyone!  We hope this will get you as excited as we are!

Greetings PR fans,

I’d like to briefly introduce myself and share some recent experiences. If you’re like many of us, we are looking forward to the Interdisciplinary Integration course in April 2010. I have the privilege of teaching with Ron Hruska and Dr. Paul Coffin about foot integration. The portion I will present will be called “myokinematics of the foot”. I’m quite excited about the subject and believe you’ll find it very interesting and helpful, even if you attended last year’s course (or don’t like feet).

Recently I attended the 12th annual International Conference of Foot Biomechanics and Orthotics Therapy in Atlanta Georgia, presented by the Prescription Foot Orthotics Laboratory Association (PFOLA). Three days of feet. It was great! Preeminent podiatrists, physical therapists, athletic trainers and orthotists from around the world convened and presented over current research. I am excited over the large body of research addressing postural control interventions, including both proximal and distal influences in the lower extremities. This was my second experience at one of the most collegial, multidisciplinary, multinational and fascinating conferences I’ve attended. It was a great compliment and preparation for meeting with Ron and attending Impingement and Instability again, in North Carolina this last October.

I look forward to seeing many of you in April 2010.

Curt Johnson, PT
