Last weekend I had to pleasure of travelling to Mizzou country and teaching Pelvis Restoration at Missouri Orthopaedic Institute. I was assisted by Hayley Kava our newest faculty trainee. Hayley used to work for me back in Southern Pines, NC. We had a great weekend together catching up and planning for the future of her teaching Pelvis Restoration.  

This class was a nice mix of clinicians new to the science of PRI and those who were refining their PRI skills. Pelvis Restoration is a great first course for clinicians to help gain a better understanding of the influences of pelvic and thorax internal pressure management, frontal plane control and how patients develop compensatory movements.  

Patient management, testing and algorithms of treatment for the left AIC, PEC and patho PEC were explored and explained. Questions were asked and theoretical concepts were discussed for a variety of patients experiencing not only pelvic floor disorders, but also lower back pain, SIJ dysfunction, pubalgia and stress incontinence.

Hayley provided great insight for clinicians working with internal pelvic floor therapy. I look forward to learning more about her insights as she begins teaching Pelvis Restoration!
