No fools this April weekend! Just returned from a trip to the Metroplex of Texas and enjoyed a weekend with some friends from northern Texas to speak to a predominantly first time PRI crowd about the big science of acetabulofemoral and femoralacetabular movement as a part of lumbo-pelvic-femoral movement.
This group of scientists was as hospitable as they get, with representatives from stateside physiotherapists like Dana Martin, ATC students like Patrick Ebke, school coaches like Mario Saldivar, strength coaches like Justin Roach, PT/ATC's like Stephen Laplante, PTA's like Lindsey Wheeler and ATC's like Yoshimi Toguchi to name a few. We broke down the notion of strength as a function of triplanar neuromechanical position first and discussed the need to be aware of AF pathology, and how to do so. More importantly, we had good lab and detailed case study sample discussions about the application of our coursework to clients from all fields. Thank you Miles McGriff for the excellent discussion about integrating the science of PRI in a respectful, professional fashion among the multiple disciplines this science spans. Thank you Kelli Cutshall and Stephanie Hill, the giggle sisters, for keeping attentive and lively throughout the course.
Thank you Adrian "Commander" Pettaway, James "TSA" Edwards and Tim Garland for being willing participants during discussions and commentary. Tandra Langford, your founded PRI science clinical questions added depth to the discussion, Laura Paley and Steven Coppolecchia you were invaluable in assisting our course by serving as examples during lab time.
Finally, thank you Charles in charge Ferruzza, Jared Whitmire and the EXOS team for your time and effort in hosting the course in the "everything's big in Texas" facility. Beautiful!
Thanks again for a great weekend!
