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!

Faculty member and PRC therapist Lori Thomsen was featured in a cycling podcast by USA Cyclist George Thomas last night. George was introduced to Lori’s cycling articles by a physical therapist he was seeing for a cycling related injury in Colorado, and wants to share Lori’s knowledge with Postural Restoration. CLICK HERE to listen to Lori’s podcast interview on cycling integration. Also, stay tuned, as Lori will continue being a guest on the podcast station over the next couple months!

Check out the new featured interview with Carrie Langer, MPT, ATC, PRC!

Josh Olinick, DPT, MS, PRC has begun writing about the pelvic-calcaneal relationships seen in PRI. CLICK HERE to read the first segment of a three part series where he discusses the sagittal plane. Josh did a great job with this article and his illustrations help differentiate what is occurring in the right foot vs. left foot in a Left AIC patterned individual. Stay tuned for part two (frontal plane) and three (transverse plane) of this pelvic-calcaneal relationship series!

Double X Science, an online science magazine for women, recently posted a story which features PRC therapist’s Kristen Spencer and Louise Kelley. The story titled “Pregnancy 101: It Hurts Where?” discusses post-pardum pregnancy pain, and how physical therapy, including Postural Restoration to address pelvis asymmetry can prevent or eliminate pregnancy-related pelvic pain.

Recently, two PRC therapist’s spent time integrating with and educating groups of dentists across the country. Mike Cantrell, MPT, PRC presented at a Dental Conference in Atlanta, GA in November, while Kathy Johnson, PT, PRC recently had the opportunity to spend a couple weeks at the Pankey Institute in Florida, serving as guest faculty for their TMD II course. Kathy provided this blog entry on New Opportunities for Interdisciplinary Integration. Kathy’s comments in this blog reflect the openness many dentists have regarding the need to balance oral function and posture. The neck and the mandible compensate for functional malocclusion, just as the teeth accommodate for cervical-cranial unilateral patterns of function. Without obtaining, recognizing and achieving cervical-cranio-mandibular neutrality, as the neuro-muscular adaptation to unfamiliar occlusion is established, both the dentist and the physical therapist outcomes will be challenging at best. Maintaining a PRI reference between offices is highly recommended. These two professions have so much in common where and when neuro-muscular position and postural influences are considered. Thank you Mike and Kathy for your efforts in integrating PRI with these groups of dentists! - Ron
