Congratulations to Michal Niedzielski, who recently had an article that he wrote about PRI published in a Polish Rehabilitation Journal! In addition to this article, Michal has translated and taught Myokinematic Restoration to colleagues in Poland, and is currently working to translate and teach Postural Respiration and Pelvis Restoration in Poland as well!

Happy April! And I mean it, that's no Fool's joke.

'Tis the month of Interdisciplinary Integration (better get your spot!), and to celebrate, I wanted to post up a link to a write up on this past December's Advanced Integration course.

It's four parts (one for each day of the course). All parts have all been published, so here is part Ipart IIpart III, and part IV.

Hope this gets your brain gears moving a little like it did mine.

“It doesn’t matter whether you’re an 80-year-old smoker, a 23-year-old Olympian, or a regular, fit guy-odds are the way you’re breathing right now is flooding your body with stress hormones, compromising your joints and mobility, bottlenecking your energy and undermining your performance in the gym and everyday life. Fourteen times a minute, you become a little weaker and a bit duller.

Hruska is on a mission to change that. Step one is understanding how your body is organized.”

Ron Hruska was recently interviewed by Men’s Health along with Bill Hartman and Neil Rampe discussing Postural Restoration, after Trevor Thieme, Senior Editor for Men's Health attended a Postural Respiration course last year. Topics discussed include: optimal breathing and the typical respiration patterns, asymmetry, PRI in pro baseball, and common compensations that can cause neck, back and joint pain.  

The 90/90 hip lift with balloon was shown as a way to get your diaphragm in a position to work correctly, helping you to breathe appropriately and avoid chronic stress which can increase your risk of dementia by 67%, stroke by 59% and diabetes by 45%.

“You can think of neutrality of being functionally symmetrical- the ability to shift your center of gravity from one side to the other, to breathe efficiently with both lungs, and to maintain position of your true core. “Being neutral helps everything,” says All-Star first baseman Paul Goldschmidt. “When I lift, I’m stronger. When I run, I’m faster. It allows me to fully express my power and speed.”

If you haven't already, go out and grab the April 2015 Men’s Health issue and flip to page 144 to read the article, which they refer to as the "#1 Greatest Health Tip Ever!"

The article that originally appeared in the April issue of Men's Health is now online, you can read it here!

In PRI, we are typically focusing on creating a reciprocal and alternating neuromuscular system. However, our neuromuscular system is connected with all the other systems in our body. There appears to be a coupling between autonomic, central, endocrine, and gastrointestinal systems which, in parallel with our neuromuscular system, are also asymmetrical and rhythmically shifting. “Asymmetry, Lateralization, and Alternating Rhythms of the Human Body” has been broken up into 5 parts describing this phenomenon in addition to the story of how and why our asymmetry came to be. It can also be accessed at on my website where I have written on other various topics that relate to PRI.

Dallas Wood, ATC, CSCS, PRT and Zachary Nott, CSCS, SCCC, PRT are the next speakers featured in our speaker spotlight for the upcoming Interdisciplinary Integration Symposium on April 16-17th in Lincoln! Dallas and Zach will be presenting on two related topics: “Integrating Limitations for Required Optimal Human Performance” and “Safely Strengthening and Conditioning Those Who Function in ‘Un-Safe’ Situations”.

These two human performance specialists utilize their expertise as Postural Restoration Trained (PRT) professionals working with the Department of Defense. Integrating PRI into training with the operators they work with is not always an easy process, however they have found success, and their knowledge on these topics is something you will not want to miss. Here is what they had to say about their upcoming presentations:

“Integrating Limitations for Required Optimal Human Performance”

When your client can't or won't control their extension bias, you need an integrated approach to help them get the most out of performance. Creating an environment to effectively utilize multiple disciplines to help your client perform optimally maybe what is required. Integrating limitations to move them forward can give them the reference points to be successful.

“Safely Strengthening and Conditioning Those Who Function in ‘Un-Safe’ Situations”

Is an extended system always suboptimal? In certain specialized populations, patterns that the clinician or trainer would normally abstain from may be unavoidable. Certain strategies can be used to prepare a client for activities that require or encourage extension, as well as allow them to manage this pattern when at rest.

What do a patient with POTS in California, a patient with pelvic floor pain and TMD in Virginia, a patient with dizziness and migraine headaches in Kansas and a patient with chronic back pain and leg weakness in Washington have in common?   

They each came to Lincoln, NE to be engaged with our PRIME program at the Hruska Clinic within the last month.  To learn more about our PRIME program and to see if we can help you check out our website HERE

Keep on the lookout for more information as we look forward to sharing our unparalleled success stories of integration with you!

Doug Kechijian, PT, PRC was on the Robb Wolf podcast recently to discuss the relationship between PRI methodology, movement variability, and adaptation to training. Follow Doug on Twitter here.

Jason Masek, MSPT, ATC, CSCS, PRC will be presenting at the 2015 NSCA Coaches Conference in Louisville, KY later this week. The title of Jason's presentation is "Positional Influences, Breathing, and Performance: The Utilization of Postural Restoration for the Strength & Conditioning Specialist". Jason's presentation is on Friday, January 9th at 8:00am. If you are attending this conference, be sure to check out Jason's presentation!
