We received a great question the other day regarding the “Right BC PRI Treatment Guidelines” found in the Postural Respiration manual!

“I have question concerning page 63 of the postural respiration manual. Written on the third row down is the term…All tests are - and sufficent right scapular-thoracic function and position exists.  What is meant by this phrase and how do I know when the patient has obtained this”?

The tests we are referring to are left horizontal abduction, left cervical axial rotation, left humeral glenoid flexion, right and left apical expansion, and right HG IR.  If these tests are all negative and the patient has the ability to reach forward in supine, with arms extended, without losing position of the thorax (all previous tests would indicate that) then I would recommend standing right low trap and right tricep PRI activity.  Standing places gravitational forces on the scapula and if good anti-gravitational support is offered by the right serratus anterior, middle and lower trapezius and atmospheric pressure then upright re-training and correct neuro-motor timing of upper extremity flexion should be able to occur without losing thoracic flexion.  If it cannot then right low trap and right tricep co-activation using PRI non-manual techniques should take place in any of the previous non-standing or non-upright positions.

We have also added this criteria on page 63 of the course manual.  To get a replacement copy, click here!

Recently Karen Jiran, MPT, PRC taught at our one day clinical course in Crookston, Minnesota.  Karen filled us in on how the course went:

“I had a great time up in Crookston, MN!  The group was really excited and asked great questions!

  • First, we reviewed the mechanics of footwear and how correct placement of scaphoid pads can help move a patient out of a Left AIC pattern.  There was a problem with understanding the need to support the right arch and yet allow the right great toe to contact the ground to assist with weight shift to the left.
  • Second, we hit the ZOA.  We went over what the ZOA is and how we functionally need to ensure the ZOA is supported in all three planes with each integrated exercise.
  • We reviewed and performed exercises to help understand where mistakes can easily be made.
  • We discussed clues to looking at hip lift scores and when a person really is a 3 or 4 by assessing true trunk abduction.  Just because a person can lift doesn’t mean they are a true 3 to 4.  I expect to see trunk abduction as a part of the movement.  I encouraged them to be picky when evaluating the test!
  • We also reviewed progressing with right vs. left lower trap exercises and to be careful with Right Superior T4 patients.”

Here is what an attendee had to say about it:

  • “This was an open conversation course!  This was extremely helpful to address individual questions.  The small group was conducive to understanding the deeper theories.”

If any of you have read the book, The Last Lecture, by Randy Pausch you probably remember the section on “handwritten thank you notes”.  This note was sent to us by a course attendee of the four day Interdisciplinary Integration course.  It’s notes like these that keep us moving…

I would like to commend you on the presentation of such a wonderful course, Interdisciplinary Integration!  With each PRI course that I attend, I leave knowing that I have made such a great career choice!  I cannot even imagine what life would be like after graduation if I would not have been introduced to your work in Postural Restoration!  Thank you so much for continuing to share your knowledge.  The organization of the course and welcoming environment, in addition to the overwhelming knowledge of the presentors, made for a very educational and enjoyable four days!  Thanks!
