Mike Cantrell was recently featured on a local news television station for his work in Postural Restoration with professional athletes and athletic teams. In addition to teaching PRI courses to many PT’s, ATC’s and strength coaches from several professional athletic organizations over the past couple years, Mike had the opportunity over this past year to work with two-time Olympic sprinter Derrick Atkins, who sought out Mike for his expertise in Postural Restoration.

Mike further explains his approach in treating athletes with Postural Restoration. “If a patient has hip pain, I’m going to say that has to do with the inability to move your pelvis, and I have a rib cage on top of that pelvis that must move, and I have a head and a neck on that rib cage, and I’ve got arms that hang off that rib cage that must move, Cantrell explained. I want to address every level of those components.”

The Postural Restoration Institute has long been recognized as an approved provider of continuing education for certified athletic trainers through the BOC, and more recently a few select PRI courses have been approved for strength and conditioning coaches through the NSCA. In response to the growing interest in PRI amongst these two different groups, we recently formed a Committee of five respected individuals.

Mike Arthur, Jason Masek, Michael Mullen, Chris Poulin and Jerry Weber met for the first time on Friday, August 27th to discuss avenues for advancement of Postural Restoration concepts in these specific professions. Their input is invaluable and their commitment commendable. I encourage you to read each member’s biography and learn of their exemplary experience and involvement. They have been pioneers in their professions and are now assisting us in furthering our vision for integration.

We look forward to sharing with you the Committee recommendations as they continue to collaborate in their unprecedented integration of PRI in athletic training and strength and conditioning.
