We are excited to announce and congratulate the Postural Restoration Certified (PRC) Class of 2013! PRS 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. Twenty-six PT's and PTA's earned the designation of Postural Restoration Certified (PRC) under the direction of Ron Hruska, James Anderson, Mike Cantrell, and Jennifer Gloystein.

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. Certification is available to physical therapists, physical therapist assistants and occupational therapists 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 123 Therapists have earned the designation of Postural Restoration Certified (PRC).

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!
