“One of the differences that I’ve found in moving from outpatient to home health is that function is all that really matters.  Of course function matters in outpatient and may have been a part of our outpatient goals, but decreasing pain and restoring movement seemed to be at the top of our list.  If you decrease pain and restore movement in home health and do nothing else, its not going to get paid for.  You cannot just decrease pain if you don’t demonstrate objective progress in specific functional areas like gait, transfers, bed mobility and balance.  I know I learned that in school, but it was never really enforced for me in three previous outpatient settings until I made the move to home health.  And because home health therapists practice this way, the entire course is built around making functional progress in each of these 4 areas.” - James Anderson

Bartlett, IL (Postural Respiration) - It was a pleasure to integrate all weekend with so many rehab professionals who are used to an integrated model of practice. A big thanks to Joel Anderson and also Pat, Mike and the entire staff at Olympia Chiropractic and Physical Therapy for being great hosts and for being so open to incorporating new ideas into what already started out as interdisciplinary practice model. Anita Panagiotis, PRC was a great assistant in the manual lab and throughout the course! Thanks for bringing your daughter Noelle to her first PRI course while she is still a student.  Loved having her. - James Anderson

Minneapolis, MN (Impingement & Instability) - It rained in Minnesota! So the entire class (that included several PRC therapists) was glad to be indoors. Enthusiastic questions and paradigm shifting each hour had the class room quaking as the thunder rolled. By Sunday afternoon we realized that the primary rainfall came in the form of information pouring down. So the lightning may have been electrical, but knowledge is power! - Mike Cantrell

Ron recently read this excellent article in the spring 2013 issue of the International Journal of Orthodontics. This article has been added to the reference material for the Cervical-Cranio-Mandibular Restoration course, and Ron utilized it when discussing the importance of the tongue in this past weekend’s course in Cary, NC.

To give you some insight of this article, here is one of the (many) sentences that Ron highlighted when reading this article:
“Every dentist needs to know what has caused the malocclusion that he is going to treat. In other words, one has to know the muscles, structures, attachments, forces, balances, imbalances, resting and swallowing tongue positions.”

This article is an excellent read for anyone interested in Postural Restoration and integrating with dentists or orthodontists in their community. As Ron mentions in the Cervical-Cranio-Mandibular Restoration course, the tongue is the best orthotic we have. This article discusses in depth tongue resting position and tongue swallowing positions and how the tongue influences the development of malocclusions.

Bemidji, MN (Postural Respiration) - “A great group of clinicians here in Northern Minnesota. One of our largest courses of the year with PTs, PTAs, OTs, an OT student, an RN, ATCs, a CSCS, a DC/ATC, a Neuro-Optometrist, and a Radiation Oncologist.  Grateful to have a physician attend a PRI course to appreciate how a ZOA and proper diaphragmatic breathing mechanics can be used to spare the heart from excessive radiation exposure during cancer treatments.  Thanks Kris and Megan for doing such a good job fostering the science of PRI in Bemidji!” - James Anderson

Cary, NC (Cervical-Cranio-Mandibular Restoration) - “The course this past weekend in North Carolina allowed me to reflect on how powerful the sphenoid is in “expanding” our worlds of respiration and cervical & cranial function. A big thank you to all the course attendees who allowed me to passionately demonstrate the power of a repositioning bone that controls our facial organization, vascular flow to our brain, thermal regulation of our body, our hormonal balance and our cervical orientation…...our sphenoid. Thanks Josh and Katie for hosting a great course!” - Ron Hruska

Stillwater, MN (Myokinematic Restoration) - “I knew it was going to be a great course in Minnesota this weekend when I saw this vintage Yellow VW sitting in the parking lot on my way into The Courage Center. For those of you who haven’t taken a course from myself or Mike Cantrell, the Yellow VW represents the Left AIC pattern. If you are not looking for the pattern, you don’t see it. Likewise with Yellow VW’s. I now see them everywhere I go! They are everywhere. I was equally excited when Lindsay a “first timer” shared with me her Yellow VW sighting on Sunday afternoon!  The majority of clinicians that spent their weekend with me were mostly taking their first course. They hung in there with me and my lab assistant Sidney. Both Sidney and I enjoyed passing the PRI baton off to this great group of clinicians. The more I teach, the more impressed I am with new students filling our classes and being excited to learn more.” - Jen Poulin

Boston, MA (Postural Respiration) - “Boston was beautiful in the spring. The trees were blossoming and so was PRI. So many eager attendees were there and we had a great time! Is this going to be the new haven for PRI? Thanks Donna for helping bring PRI to Boston! - Mike Cantrell

Ann Arbor, MI (Postural Respiration) - “A beautiful weekend in Ann Arbor at the University of Michigan. Great mix of PT, PTA, ATC, OT, DC, CSCS, Athletic Performance Professionals, Music Instructors and Women’s Health Professionals. Lots of fun discussing how reciprocal thoracic function relates to each one of these disciplines and allows success with a wide variety of patient goals. Hail to the Victors!” - James Anderson
