This past week, PRI has been featured in two different news outlet stories!

Yesterday's issue of the USA Today included an article about Arizona Diamondbacks pitcher Bronson Arroyo and his stategy to stay off the disabled list, which includes PRI and blowing up balloons. CLICK HERE to read the article online. PRT's Neil Rampe and Andrew Hauser along with the entire Arizona Diamondbacks athletic medicine and performance staff deserves some kudos here!
 

In another story, PRC therapist Jon Schultz from Des Moines, IA was featured by a local television station KCCI News8 in the story titled "How Learning to Breathe Could Help Your Recovery". To see this great video, CLICK HERE!

Having recently returned home to Australia from visiting Ron and his team at Hruska Clinic and the Postural Restoration Institute, I can honestly say that I found the experience observing this brilliant team as second to none. Ron and his staff were such warm, hospitable people who so generously shared their knowledge and expertise, and the opportunity to witness their Practice in action has been nothing short of life changing. I want to take this opportunity to sincerely thank both Ron and his team for welcoming me to Lincoln, and I am excited to continue my studies with PRI and look forward to visiting the clinic again in the future. Regards, Jason Thomson.

This is one title of a slide from the many that Susan Henning will use to present historical perspectives and current overviews on how to slow, halt, or reverse spinal curve progression. She has a strong experienced-based background on this subject and her presentation is already preceded by her clinical passion and genuine caring personality. Susan’s willingness to share her story about two complimentary programs in a manner that will help you better explain to a young person the reason for curve patterns and “trunk changes”, is a gift to us. I know no other person like Susan, that can facilitate a proprioceptive, kinesthetic, and respiratory self awareness attitude or a self-correcting program like Susan can. This, in my opinion, will be the hallmark of our 2014 symposium!

After reviewing Emily's presentation material, attendees will learn how to drive their diaphragm and therefore control both gravitational forces and barometric forces. This physical therapist and yoga teacher will explore the ancient concepts and modern application of yoga breathing techniques (pranayama) to help the PRI clinician fully experience and appreciate the power of the diaphragm contraction. She will offer guidance and suggestions that can immediately be implemented into a client's work out program to maximize respiratory and performance awareness. I can't wait for this uplifting two hour talk!

There is still space available for the 6th Annual Interdisciplinary Integration Symposium. To register, CLICK HERE!

A few weeks ago we were fortunate to be able to host Ron teaching the Cervical-Cranio-Mandibular Restoration course. I wrote a short review of the course that may be of interest to those that haven't taken the course yet or anyone just looking for a little more PRI info. You can check it out here: PRI Cervical-Cranio-Mandibular Restoration Course Review

In May of 2006, I taught a Postural Respiration course in Tulsa, Oklahoma.  I met Julie Hereford for the first time at that course and was in awe of her knowledge on the subject of sleep.  She was asked to be a presenter at the 2010 PRI Interdisciplinary Integration Symposium and along with Dr. J. Paul Rutledge, they introduced sleep to us like no one had before.  Dr. Julie Hereford, PT, DPT has now published a book that will provide rehabilitation professionals with a source of information that will help them gain a better understanding of sleep and its impact on the rehabilitation process.  If you want to know how sleep can increase cortisol levels or reduce glucose tolerance or increase sympathetic nervous system activity, you will enjoy this read.  Dr. Hereford has always been an advocate of sleep being tied to consolidation of motor learning.  “It follows that dysfunctional sleep may interfere with the ability to incorporate particular restorative movement patterns that are learned and practiced during a rehabilitation session unless the appropriate stage of sleep is achieved within a specific time frame.”  I believe the reader and clinician will not be disappointed with any of the four sections of this book and will be introduced to disordered sleep as it relates to systemic challenging disease and dysfunctional patterns.  Therefore, Sleep and Rehabilitation: A Guide for Health Professionals is a must for book shelves of those who appreciate the need for sleep and its intricate effects on performance.

I invited Mike Cantrell to provide an introduction to Postural Restoration for the 3rd year PT students this year. I have had no exposure to PRI, but I was really interested to learn more after our student, Megan H., attended the clinic there this past summer. We introduce other techniques in our program, including PNF and NDT, so to get exposure to another technique that can be a useful tool in our tool box as physical therapists seemed to be worthwhile.  Plus, I know Mike and I know how engaging he can be- I’m always interested in bringing in engaging guests to the classroom.

And boy was I right!  Mike was fantastic, and I wish we could have had more time to digest and understand the beginnings of PRI. I think it sums it up nicely, when students after said, “this changes my entire way of thinking about PT,” or even better, “I just updated my status on Facebook to “I’m in love with PRI.”  Without a doubt, I would love to have Mike back to teach the students next year and personally, I want to learn more about PRI as a practicing PT! - Anne, Clinical Assistant Professor (Georgia State University)
