Hello PRI family! I just returned from the great Northeast in Maine where I enjoyed teaching a Pelvis Restoration course with a diverse group of movement scientists from many professions.
Many thanks to the team at Coastal Orthopedics and Sports Medicine Physical Therapy for welcoming PRI into their beautiful clinic. Special thanks to Brian Bisson for leading the hosting effort and taking time to make my experience in fluid, top to bottom, so we could stay focused on restoring pelvis function. Thank you also for Michael Mullins, PTA, ATC, PRC for continuing to be an ambassador for the science of PRI in the Northeast and beyond, for putting me up and for the best scallops I've ever had! A+ for all hosts!
This course was filled with eager clinicians who were particularly interested in how to integrate a pelvis with a L AIC and/or a PEC overlay so their clients can return to full function and meet their functional and athletic goals. There was a good discussion and a long span of time taken demonstrating about how to reposition a PEC patient effectively from day one with focus on instant clinical application for a variety of settings. There were many with excellent questions about facilitation techniques and what muscles specifically are involved on which side and how each of said lengthened or shortened state muscle affects each quadrant of the inlet and the outlet--a very intuitive group!
Thank you Kyle Neagle DC, Amy McManus DPT, CSCS, Rick Sirois MS, LATC, CSCS, Sarah Coughlin LMT and others for your help with modeling patterns during lab demonstrations. What a thorough job this group did during lab demonstrations of both tests and techniques! Looking forward to seeing this group of learners in PRI circles for years to come, thanks to each for your attention and learning effort last weekend!
