We had another busy weekend of PRI courses! Despite another winter storm and a few travel delays getting home, the faculty reported a great weekend!

Pelvis Restoration (Salem, OR) - This past weekend in Oregon was amazing.  Approximately 10 individuals experienced their first PRI course!  What a fun and exciting time.  It was also rewarding to see “light bulb” moments going off for others who have attended other courses.  I feel “integration” was a key word this past weekend with how the Pelvis Restoration course integrates Postural Respiration and Myokinematic Restoration together.  Understanding how that polyarticular chain of muscle integrates the whole system.  It was an awesome weekend.  Thanks Salem Health for hosting us this past weekend! -Lori Thomsen

Myokinematic Restoration (Grand Rapids, MN) - Snow, cold, and northern Minnesota hospitality came together for another great PRI course! A group of PRI educated clinicians recruited their co-workers who had not taken an actual course but had seen Postural Restoration used clinically with good results.  Less time introducing PRI concepts allowed a lot of good clinical discussion on things like how to manage the Left AIC foot pattern and dynamic standing exercise activities. -James Anderson

Cervical-Cranio-Mandibular Restoration (Minneapolis, MN) - Karen and Carrie thank you for hosting the TMCC course this past weekend. I enjoy teaching this course so much, especially when the audience is multi-disciplinary (optometrist, dentists, ATC’s, PT’s and strength coaches) and they let me “jump around” to teach in an andragogical manner. Thanks! -Ron Hruska

For those of you who know Ron pretty well or if you saw his Twitter posting yesterday, you have realized that he likes to know “What’s your story?” He enjoyed reading these recent emails this past week! Thanks for sharing!

I can’t tell you how excited I am by the work that you’ve done (and are doing), bringing together concepts and techniques from various disciplines, and building a unique and incredibly insightful approach to physical therapy examination, evaluation and treatment.  I realize that your work (as all of our work) is built on the shoulders of others, and I am not prone to hyperbole, nor have I ever had a hero; still, I am awed by the genius of your constructions.  I am reeling a bit from all of the information I have received in taking 3 of PRI’s courses in the last month, but everything I have learned has resonated strongly.  There are many patients who I haven’t been able to help, many more who I could never take to 100%, and I’ve always been very aware that I was missing something.  Though I have treated very few patients with the PRI approach thus far, I am convinced that this is the missing link.  I am a bit of a continuing ed junkie, have taken many hundreds of hours of courses (most of them excellent) and am in the process of completing my DPT degree, but I have never encountered coursework that was this inspiring.  It seems that you are grossly under-appreciated in the physical therapy world and I just want to thank you for all you have done and all you continue to do! 
- Carrie S.

All of you guys at PRI are amazing!  I hope that you know how important each of your roles is.  PRI is really changing the lives of countless individuals each and every single day.  It is not only the lives of the patients, but the family members and also the clinicians that are using this.  I, for one, was super frustrated with being a PT and was feeling pretty much like I was wasting my time before I fell into a PRI course.  It was the first course that Jen Poulin had taught and it literally has changed my life. I know that it is easy to get bogged down in our daily lives and our work and to feel like what we are doing is just ‘work’ or doesn’t impact people, but it does. - Lori S

Maryland Sports Care and Rehab in Urbana, MD hosted Cervical-Cranio-Mandibular Restoration this past weekend. With 28 attendees, this was our largest Cervical-Cranio-Mandibular Restoration course in the past couple years! Here’s what Ron had to say about his weekend in Maryland:

“I always become energized when I present information relating to temporal-mandibular-cervical-cranial function. Each of these regions have direct influence on the others and I believe this particular class reinforced the clinical issues that occur when temporal, cervical and mandibular function are influenced by cranial or sphenoid orientation. Genioglossus (tongue) activity was well-received and therefore, will be updated and reinforced in future courses. I want to thank all the attendees in the course, especially the two dentists who joined us, and the fabulous host site for a wonderful weekend!” - Ron Hruska

This week’s featured speaker for our 5th Annual Interdisciplinary Integration Symposium is John Cook. Cook is entering his 13th season as the head volleyball coach at the University of Nebraska –Lincoln. Prior to becoming the head coach at Nebraska, he was the head coach at the University of Wisconsin. Cook also has Olympic and championship experience in his coaching resume. During his tenure at Nebraska, I have had the opportunity to work with John and his team as the Biomechanical Consultant for the University of Nebraska Volleyball team.

“What goes on behind any successful athletic program is leadership. For the last 13 years, I have had the good fortune to work with John Cook, his coaches, support staff, and the team of individuals that have made the volleyball athletes he develops well-rounded, disciplined and ‘complete’. John’s passion for interconnectivity will ‘fire up’ the course attendees on the morning of the second day. Get your seat early!”

Mike Cantrell was the only speaker on the road this past weekend, teaching Postural Respiration in Richmond, VA. Speaker Jennifer Poulin will head back to Richmond this year June 8-9 to teach Pelvis Restoration!

“Richmond was excited to receive Postural Respiration and the group on the whole was fully engaged with lots of questions throughout the weekend!” - Mike Cantrell

This week’s Interdisciplinary Integration featured speaker is Dr. Kris Berg. Dr. Berg is a Health, Physical Education & Recreation professor at the University of Nebraska - Omaha. His teaching interests include exercise in chronic illness and exercise in special populations. Dr. Berg will be presenting on day two of the symposium on asthma and exercise-induced asthma.

“The athletes’ ability to perform really depends on bronchial performance. What really is exercise-induced asthma? How does exercise induce bronchial constriction? Who really has it? And what considerations should be made when working with this athletic phenomenon? I can’t think of a more highly qualified person to answer these questions, other than Dr. Kris Berg. Should be an enlightening presentation for anyone who uses PRI principles in maximizing functional performance.” - Ron Hruska

Despite some travel delays due to the crazy weather across the country this past week, we had a great weekend of courses!

Myokinematic Restoration (Portland, OR) - “Enjoyed a great course in Portland with a nice mix of athletic trainers, strength and conditioning professionals, massage therapists, personal fitness professionals, yoga instructors and physical therapists.  A big thanks to Jimmy Southard of the Seattle Mariners for encouraging such a large group from his organization and to the girls in the back row who made such a great contribution to the course, even though they were initially intimidated by their lack of degrees and certifications.  Your interest and passion in learning was felt and appreciated by us all.” - James Anderson

Pelvis Restoration (Loveland, CO) - “I was amazed this past weekend of the course participants and their enthusiasm to learn and integrate PRI in their practices.  The host site, Rebound Physical Therapy, hosted their 7th PRI course this past weekend!!!! When I asked the participants and read their reviews, I feel three things stood out for them this past weekend:  1) Frontal plane integration of the pelvis inlet and outlet with patient function.  2) Improved understanding of inhibition in PRI and 3) Utilizing PRI tests to assist them with making improved clinic decisions for home programs for their patients. Very blessed to have assisted them this past weekend in their PRI learning! - Lori Thomsen
