Day can expect to hear a passionate dentist talk about the importance of temporal mandibular disc position on maintaining cranial symmetry.  His unique approach to treating craniofacial pain and dental discrepancies through a gnathic orthopedic positioning approach has complimented Ron Hruska’s approach of reducing neuromuscular patterns of the ‘head, neck face’, through integrative muscle and respiratory re-positioning.  The two have been working together for over two years and have successfully integrated unconventional cranial and postural methods to maintain a cranial, occlusal and cervical-thoracic lumbar stability.  I see this as a great opportunity for a physical and occupational therapist and podiatrist to recognize the opportunities and the rewards of working with dentistry in establishing postural alignment or neutrality of the head, neck and trunk.  Dentists should feel more comfortable working with physical and occupational therapists and podiatrists, knowledgeable about the Postural Restoration Institute philosophies, after taking this course.  What a ‘team’ day!

As the Interdisciplinary Integration course approaches, I thought I would provide some timely input and updates.  Our speakers are excited about this event and are working on each of their presentations and trying to condense their material down to one day.  Since there will be a different speaker each day, I thought I would provide some insight on how each unique day will “feel”. 

Day One...could be compared to our ‘Technique of the Week’.  If you are interested in why an orthotic is important for challenging habitual postural and gait patterns, or what purpose a PRI orthotic serves in reducing neuromotor pathomechanics, or when should you consider using specific orthotics and muscle integration to establish PRI outcomes, or who specifically should experience specific support from a specific appropriate footwear, you should think about where you are going to be that day.  Dr. Paul Coffin, Ron Hruska and Ann Riglein have been working together for more than 8 years, what more can I say.

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.
