PRI Integration for the Baseball Player in Philadelphia, PA

Allen and I enjoyed our weekend in Philadelphia at the Maplezone Sports Institute with the staff from the Training Room PT, who hosted PRI Integration for Baseball. Thank you to Rob Rabena and Jon Herting for sharing such a great facility with us and for being such great hosts. It was great to get to spend some time with an old friend Navin Hettiarachchi, and to enjoy the evening with him and Allen after the first day of the course. We took a tour of the new Philadelphia Mormon Temple and we all agreed it was a very beautiful building. Near the end of our tour we got to take our picture next to Thorvaldsen's "Christus" statue. The original stands in Copenhagen Denmark, but the statue we saw was an impressive replica and made for a great picture. Allen and Navin could not get over the fact that Jesus was standing in left AFIR with a lot of right chest wall expansion. We laughed because the most memorable part of our tour was getting our picture taken with "Left AFIR Jesus". Notre Dame and the Catholics have Touchdown Jesus and BYU and the Mormons have Left AFIR Jesus. Too funny. The second day of the baseball course was focused mostly on testing and treatment. The biggest ah-ha's seemed to come during the Quadriped TS-ST Stability Test lab. The combination of assessing lateralization, pelvic elevation and proper weight shift across the pelvis while in AFIR with contralateral trunk rotation helped attendees recognize tri planar performance deficits across the lumbo-pelvic and thoraco-abdominal core on one side of the body compared to the other. All in all, it was a great weekend of PRI principles, baseball throwing mechanics, tri-planer movement assessments and both treatment and training techniques for the baseball athlete. Thank you Philadelphia for all the fun memories.
