North Carolina State University was the beautiful host location for PRI Vision Integration for the Baseball Player this past Sunday. Special thanks go to Ryan Holleman assisted by Jason Robey for all the hard work that went into making this happen, to Josh Olinick and his wife Katie for sharing their home, family, food, and most importantly time with me, and also to Josh for providing the manpower to show how the shoulder motion and thoracic position changed at least 25 different times before and after each vision technique!
I thoroughly enjoyed the room full of diverse backgrounds, since the vision concepts can be applied to patient populations other than baseball players. And it was especially nice to have several familiar faces for my first solo run of this course; I always love to see members of the “Carolina Contingent”! I think everyone in the room benefitted from the experience of our willing volunteer, a strength and conditioning coach for college baseball and former player, who was kind enough to be the model for our assessment and technique demonstrations. Jon, your input and sharing with the room was invaluable!
A couple comments from the day:
- “I will be able to use this with my athletes on Monday!”
- “Improved awareness of the power of the visual system.”
- “This made vision concepts so simple to understand and use!”
All in all, mission accomplished! I am already looking forward to the next one!
