Weekly, we receive phone calls from patients or healthcare professionals in search of a PRI trained provider. As a result we’ve long offered a listing of those PRI trained health professionals on our website. Our National Network page lists those who have attended 2 or more courses sponsored by PRI and instructed by PRI faculty. This list is a great resource that guides individuals all over the country to a health professional with PRI experience. Along with directing patient care, it also provides exposure to your clinic by linking directly to your website. If you are PRI trained and do not find your name on our National Network or if you would like to learn more about this great opportunity, please contact us!

Over the last few years we have been fortunate to develop a strong relationship with Paul Coffin, DPM. His monthly visits to the Hruska Clinic have provided us a great avenue to learn about him, his practice and his amazing knowledge of the foot. As time goes on, we are getting better at determining when PRI activity will succeed without Dr. Coffin’s expertise and when a referral to him is necessary. Last night when I got home from work I was greeted with the warmest welcome I have ever received from my adorable dog, Miles. As I sat my things down and began to walk to the bedroom, his habitual behavior of following my every step ceased.Ignoring this bizarre behavior I continued my path to the bedroom. Once I opened the door, I realized why my shadow had chosen to stay 10 paces behind me. Although my experience with orthotic referrals is elementary, I am fairly confident that he will not be able to help me?

Last week, the staff of The Hruska Clinic and Dr. Michael Hoefs joined together to discuss treatment of TMD. Although PRI is an effective treatment to TMD, there are occasions when a referral to a dentist is appropriate and necessary, as outlined in Advanced Integration and Cervical-Cranio-Mandibular Restoration . During an initial evaluation, Dr. Hoefs uses several objective measurements to properly assess his patients. Range of motion (ROM) is the first objective test used to guide him in his plan of care; based on the following:

  1. Full ROM (>48 mm) with a noticeable click – Easiest to diagnose and treat.
  2. 42 – 46 mm ROM with >12 mm of lateral opening – Probably a muscular restriction with a reducing disc. Patient will need supportive therapy.
  3. 35 – 42 mm ROM with <10 mm of lateral opening – These symptoms would reflect a chronic closed lock position with most ligaments being stretched out.
  4. < 35 mm ROM – Patient is more than likely in an acute closed locked, but not always. Can be myospasms!

To learn more about Dr. Michael Hoefs please visit Lincoln TMJ Therapy. If you’d like more information on PRI and TMD integration with dentists and orthodontists like Dr. Hoefs who respect the need for proper mandibular condyle and temporal fossa position, please contact us!
