Postural Restoration trained therapists and trainers are familiar with the collaboration that is often necessary for successful outcomes.  They work hard to nurture professional relationships in their area for this integration to best occur. If you are a PR trained therapist and are working on developing your relationship with other disciplines further, consider inviting these individuals to attend our first Interdisciplinary Integration course.  Click here for our short advertisement to send to a friend, colleague or local professional with whom you are working with or hope to work with in the future!

We all know how convenient it can be to make online purchases. We have a tip to make it even easier. PRI uses PayPal to process registrations securely. You may think that in order to use PayPal you must have a PayPal account or need to create one. But you can actually pay with a credit card without an account. 

Simply click “register” next to the date and location of the course you plan to attend. In the “payment method” field select “credit”. On the left side of the PayPal page to which you will be directed you see in bold “Don’t have a PayPal account? Use your credit card or bank account (where available). Continue”. Click “continue” to enter your credit card information and you’re done.

In many cases, the name of the registered attendee and the name of the payer may not be the same. That’s okay too. The majority of those instances are easily detected when we process your registration. If we aren’t sure, we’ll give you a call to confirm.

If you experience any difficulty just give us a call or send an email. We’ll contact you right away to address any problems. Also remember that you are welcome to pay by check or call our office to have your credit card processed directly in our office.

Today brings an end to the discussion of System Integrational Dilemmas.  If you have been tuning in the last few days, we have been presenting common issues that arise with PRI programs and some things to think about when attempting to overcome these dilemmas.  Today we will feature common dilemmas that arise with a Cervial Cranio-Mandibular Restoration program:

1.  Can’t open mouth past 45mm - no click

More than likely will need an appliance or see an orthopedic gnathologist oriented dentist.

2.  Can’t open mouth without a click

Treat TMCC issues, free up cervical axial limitations, restore C3-C5 lordosis and if PRI stabilization effort maintains cervical neutrality a splint or TMD treatment may not be necessary, especially if there is no associated joint pain.  If joint pain,  then refer to a dentist for an appropriate splint.

3.  Can’t passively rotate cervical spine to the left – axially with neutral brachial chains

Treat left SCM, scalenes, upper trap, anterior and posterior capitus muscles to achieve right sidebending at OA and AA.
Restore cranial flexion on the right manually.
Re-check after placing tongue depressor between left molars; if cervical spine resumes neutrality – refer for intra-oral appliance.
If all the above fail, consider neuro-optometric treatment.

4.  Can’t protrude without lateral trusion

Treat left SCM, scalenes, upper trap, anterior and posterior capitus muscles to achieve right sidebending at OA and AA.
Restore cranial flexion on the right manually.
Re-check after placing tongue depressor between left molars; if cervical spine resumes neutrality – refer for intra-oral appliance.
If all the above fail, consider neuro-optometric treatment.

5.  Can’t decrease a cant (bipupilar plane, otic plane, transverse occlusal plane)

Will more than likely require palate expansion for system unlocking and possibly orthodontistry to ‘stabilize’ neutral cranium with proper occlusion.
