I returned this past weekend from a tremendous weekend of learning with an authentic group of learners in Colorado where Pelvis Restoration was on tap. I had the pleasure of being hosted once again by Jonathan Pope and his team at Train Rogue/Ethos Colorado Training Facility and I was reconnected with my friend Craig Deppershmidt, DPT, PRC as well as newly certified Karen Stillahn, PT, DPT, ATC, PRC who combined to provide a luxury PRC tag team during labs, much appreciated by all in the course. From LMT to OT to PT to DC to ATC to CSCS, this group of movement scientists brought it!
This course was packed with great discussions about LAIC and a bilateral AIC pattern that can lead us to using a PEC pattern to overstabilize a system that can lead to pain and/or pathology. We had thorough discussion of inlet and outlet function, urogenital diaphragm function related to position and relative order of operations for allowing anterior pelvic diaphragm function. We dove deep into how special tests correlate with one another to give a thorough, layered assessment of position, the pattern involved, compensation for said pattern, and pathology if present. From there, this group was keyed in on great clinical application of developing appropriate PRI facilitation programs to oppose the respective patterns identified, with inhibition components implemented when needed, with specificity attained with special tests. Pelvic and thoracic diaphragms were center stage.
We enjoyed a good discussion and lab series with case studies in the fold, with treatment appendix reference and application being the focus of discussion late. This group was engaged, focused, with great clinical questions and facilitation of discussion by Craig, Charles Fairbanks, Margaret Randolph, James Park and others. Thank you Kyler Crouse, Ellen Kindelsperger, Jonathan Pope, Sharon Petty, Nathan Olson and others for your time and assistance during lab demonstrations.
Thank you all for a weekend that flew by, so engaged with this lively, friendly group that I forgot to take any group pictures! Colorado intense! Thanks again to all.
