Congratulations to our Newest PRT Class!

We are excited to announce and congratulate our second Postural Restoration Trained (PRT) Class in 2017! This was our first summer testing date, and we plan to offer this every three years, in addition to the annual January testing program. PRT is the result of completing multiple advanced PRI courses, demonstrating a thorough understanding of the science through completion of the PRT application, and successfully participating in practical and analytical testing. This past weekend, five gentleman earned the designation of Postural Restoration Trained (PRT) under the direction of Ron Hruska, Gibbie Duval and Jennifer Platt.

The Postural Restoration Institute® established this credentialing process in 2011 as a way to recognize and identify individuals with advanced training, extraordinary interest and devotion to the science of postural adaptations, asymmetrical patterns and the influence of polyarticular chains of muscles on the human body as defined by the Postural Restoration Institute®.  The PRT credential is available to Certified Athletic Trainers, Certified Athletic Therapists and Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialists who have completed the course requirements, application and testing process. With the addition of this class, there are now 46 PRT professionals throughout the U.S and Internationally.

PRT credentialed athletic trainers and strength and conditioning coaches offer a unique approach to physical medicine and fitness called Postural Restoration®. This approach addresses underlying biomechanics which can often lead to symptoms of pain and dysfunction. All mechanical influences on the body that restrict movement and contribute to improper joint and muscle position are considered, examined, and assessed. Techniques are utilized to restore proper alignment of the body while proper respiratory dynamics are considered. Management encompasses prevention and lifetime integration for long-term successful outcomes.

Congratulations!

I can't believe how quickly this weekend went by. It was such an honour to meet and learn from Ron, Jen, and Gibbie. I'm excited to have met the other four men who received their certification with me and look forward to the future of continuing to learn PRI priciples, learning from my peers, and above all, helping my clients move and perform with better position. Thank you Ron, Jen, and Gibbie, from the bottom of my heart. Jon.
