It’s so hard to believe that it is already August 1st! Where has the summer gone?

This comes as a reminder that applications for the PRI credentialing programs, Postural Restoration Certified (PRC) and Postural Restoration Trained (PRT) are quickly approaching! PRC applications are due on September 15th, and PRT applications are due on October 15th.

Are you nearing completion of your PRC or PRT application? If so, there are benefits to submitting your application early! Some benefits include:

  • Early submissions are given to the review committee immediately, and feedback is returned to the applicant within 6 weeks!
  • Stress-free life (from your application at least) for the remainder of the summer! 
  • After you hear from the review committee, you are able to begin planning your travel arrangements for the PRC or PRT testing process, and hopefully get some great travel deals!

A couple PT’s have already submitted their PRC application, and have received feedback from the review committee. I am sure they are relaxing by the pool now!

Be sure to check out this month’s featured interview with Kevin Neeld! Kevin is the President, COO, and Director of Athletic Development at Endeavor Sports Performance in Pitman, NJ.

I received the first Postural Restoration Certification (PRC) application for 2013 in the mail today, and I must say even I was a bit surprised to have one arrive so early! Although, PRC applications are not due until September 15th, it is never too early to begin working on the application process.

Postural Restoration Trained (PRT) applications are due on October 15th. If you too have begun working on your application during this wintery spring weather, and have any questions, please email me!

If you have not listened to Neil Rampe’s recent interview on SportsRehabExpert.com, be sure to check it out soon! It is available FREE until this Wednesday only.

The teleseminar interview that I did back in 2011 for SportsRehabExpert.com (scroll down to bottom of the link) is also available for FREE until this Wednesday as well!

Neil Rampe, M.Ed., ATC, CSCS, LMT, PRT is featured in SportsRehabExpert.com’s weekly teleseminar interview! Neil is in his sixth year as the Manual Therapist for Major League Baseball’s Arizona Diamondbacks. He was introduced to Postural Restoration® in 2006, and earned the designation of Postural Restoration Trained (PRT) in January 2013. In addition to Neil’s interest and expertise in Postural Restoration®, he is also a C level DNS practitioner through the The Prague School of Rehabilitation. In this teleseminar, Neil discusses his background and experience with integrating Postural Restoration® and DNS in his professional career and rehabilitation of elite athletes. 

CLICK HERE to listen to Neil’s teleseminar interview. Neil’s interview, along with Ron Hruska’s teleseminar interview (open link and scroll to the bottom) from sportsrehabexpert.com in 2011 will be available for FREE for the next week!

We are excited to announce and congratulate the Postural Restoration Trained Class of 2013! PRT is the result of completing multiple advanced PRI courses, demonstrating a thorough understanding of the science through completion of the PRT application, and successfully participating in practical and analytical testing. Four individuals earned the designation of Postural Restoration Trained (PRT) under the direction of Ron Hruska, Jason Masek and Jennifer Gloystein.

The Postural Restoration Institute® established this credentialing process in 2011 as a way to recognize and identify individuals with advanced training, extraordinary interest and devotion to the science of postural adaptations, asymmetrical patterns and the influence of polyarticular chains of muscles on the human body as defined by the Postural Restoration Institute®.  The PRT credential is available to Certified Athletic Trainers and Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialists who have completed the requirements.

PRT credentialed athletic trainers and strength and conditioning specialists offer a unique approach to physical medicine called Postural Restoration. This approach addresses underlying biomechanics which can often lead to symptoms of pain and dysfunction. All mechanical influences on the body that restrict movement and contribute to improper joint and muscle position are considered, examined, and assessed. Techniques are utilized to restore proper alignment of the body while proper respiratory dynamics are considered. Treatment encompasses prevention and lifetime integration for long-term successful outcomes.

Congratulations!

Thank you to everyone who submitted an application for Postural Restoration Certification (PRC)!

The application review process was completed on Friday and all applicants should now have received email notification of the feedback from our PRC Application Review Committee. If you did not receive this email, please contact me. We look forward to the educational process of PRC testing, scheduled for December 5-6.

Each year the process of PRC review is one that I personally find very gratifying, and this year was no exception. We received a record number of applications which demonstrate the passion and interest that so many therapists have for the PRI science. In turn, the reviewer feedback from our Committee of individuals who themselves have earned the designation of PRC, reaffirms the growth and excitement that we continue to see through this unique mentorship opportunity that is the application review.

Also, I would like to thank those who applied for our new credential of PRT!  The application review process for PRT is now underway. Please expect to receive your completed review on or before November 15th. The educational testing process of PRT is scheduled for January 9th. It is with much anticipation and excitement that we prepare for the first class of individuals to earn the designation of Postural Restoration Trained (PRT).
