Courses

Last week Gregory Parfianowicz traveled to Poland to educate a group of therapists and dentists on Postural Respiration and Cervical-Cranio-Mandibular Restoration.  We asked Gregory a few questions about his trip…

Who was in attendance?
We had physical therapists, dentists, dental technicians and orthodontists attending a 2-day PRI overview course with emphasis on “Cervical-Cranial -Mandibular Restoration”.
I was impressed that so many dentists are considering, if not already , working closely with physical therapists (at least 3 attendees have extra room in their office for PT and employ one on part time basis).

Why do you think there is an interest from the dentists in that area?
I believe that dentists and orthodontists in Poland are becoming even more concerned with patients not responding fully to their treatment and the patients are breaking appliances/crowns more often on the left side than right. They are concerned with those patients negatively advertising their practice in cases where they are being charged for the service which didn’t work.
By the end of each day we had a discussion going all over the room with suggestions, it wasn’t one way communication, it was sharing information between each profession to help the patient.
One dentist sent a text to her husband during lunch on the first day- “Before I do any type of tooth work, including fillings, I need to contact and discuss the case with the patient’s physical therapist, optometrist, and psychiatrist.”

Do you have any future plans for PRI courses in Poland?
We hope to do the next course for “teams” of physical therapists and dentists in the spring of 2012 and hopefully another Myokinematic Restoration course for physical therapists as well.

Two new articles were added to the PRI Library and to the Myokinematic Restoration course reference list.  The JOSPT published an article on the relationship of hip strengthening and patellofemoral pain in August and Sports Health also published a similar article on this same subject.  To read the article from JOSPT, click here!  To read about the article published in Sports Health, click here!

This Saturday is the early registration deadline for our Impingement & Instability course being held in Phoenix, AZ on November 5-6. James Anderson will be teaching this course and received the following reviews from his most recent presentation of this course in Chanhassen, MN:

PRI continues to connect the dots and improve applicability to patient care. Thanks!

This is an amazing course that really pull things together! Go PRI!!!

The best Postural Restoration class I have ever taken (and I have taken many)!! I loved James’ emphasis on gait and reference centers. He related everything to gait and these reference centers, which helped me organize all the Postural Restoration classes I have ever taken, and I can use this to help my patients.

We’re excited to be teaming up with Physiotherapy Associates! James Anderson will present Postural Respiration on October 15-16, 2011 at their location in Herndon, Virginia.

By attending this course you’ll gain an appreciation for the postural influences of rib torsion, asymmetrical oblique strength, inconsistent breathing patterns, habitual use of accessory respiratory musculature and a restricted diaphragm. Clinical assessment and management skills will be covered for treating diagnosis such as “fibromyalgia”, thoracic outlet syndrome and shoulder dysfunction. You’ll discover the value of having your patients and athletes blow up a balloon.

Register today!

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!

Check out this video of Ron Hruska working with a 23 y/o female who is neutral, but still has low back pain secondary to the inability to find AF IR in stance with her abdominals engaged.  To learn PRI non-manual integration techniques, such as the one prescribed to this patient, join us at PRI for our annual 4-day Advanced Integration course!

Note: She will be performing the above technique on both sides for her home program.
