Postural Restoration Certified (PRC)

We are excited to announce and congratulate the Postural Restoration Certified (PRC) Class of 2017! PRC credentialing is the result of completing multiple advanced PRI courses, demonstrating a thorough understanding of the science through completion of the PRC application, and successfully participating in practical and analytical testing. Fifteen Physical Therapists earned the designation of Postural Restoration Certified (PRC) under the direction of Ron Hruska, Lori Thomsen, Mike Cantrell, and Jennifer Platt earlier this week.

The Postural Restoration Institute established a certification process in 2004 as a way to recognize and identify those 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 PRC credentialing program is available to physical therapists, physical therapist assistants, occupational therapists, and chiropractors who have attended PRI courses, demonstrated a thorough understanding of the science through completion of the PRC application, and successfully participate in both clinical and analytical testing. To date, 189 professionals have earned the designation of Postural Restoration Certified (PRC).

Holly Spence, PT, PRC presented earlier this month at the OBI Bioesthetic Dentistry Annual Session in New York City. Holly presented alongside Gayle Myers, MD and Dara Chira, DMD. Their interdisciplinary presentation was titled "Adjunctive Therapy to Joint Stabilization and Splint Design". Within her presentation, Holly introduced the attendees to PRI concepts of asymmetry, the relationship between proper respiratory mechanics, its influence on forward head position and centric relation of the TM joint from a PRI perspective. In the first part of their presentation, they introduced what they each do, followed by their assessment methods and when they know to refer to each other, and they concluded with case studies to demonstrate how they treat patients in an integrative fashion. CLICK HERE to view Holly's portion of the presentation. Thanks Holly for sharing your interdisciplinary story with this dental group. I am sure you helped inspire the attendees to look at building an interdisciplinary team!

At our annual Advanced Integration course this weekend, we presented the PRI Director’s Dedication Award to another very deserving colleague, Michal Niedzielski. This award was established in 2012 to recognize an individual’s ongoing dedication to their advancement in PRI. 
Michal attended his first course (Protonics) in 1998 in upstate New York, and since that time he has attended a total of 22 courses! He earned the designation of Postural Restoration Certified (PRC) in 2007. In 2009, Michal taught one of the first international PRI courses, Myokinematic Restoration in his home country, Poland. Since then he has continued to teach courses in Poland nearly every year, and in the past two years, he has translated and taught the Postural Respiration and Pelvis Restoration courses as well! Thank you Michal for your ongoing dedication to the Postural Restoration Institute®, and congratulations on receiving the PRI Director’s Dedication Award!

Julie Blandin was recently interviewed for our Featured Interview section, and in this interview she talks about her career path and professional development and how she got involved in PRI. She also discusses a couple teasers for a new course that will be hosted for the fist time in 2015,  PRI Integration for Fitness and Movement. Click  HERE to read the full interview.

The second quarter PRC/PRT Update email was sent out yesterday. Please check your emails, and if you did not receive it, please email me to let me know! Also, if you are having trouble opening the links to attached documents in the email, it may be due to your email server blocking them for security purposes (this has occurred with a couple work/university domain emails). If this is happening, please contact me with a different email address that I can re-send the email to. Have a great weekend!
