Sitting in the “audience” and listening and reacting with fellow faculty is such a wonderful time, opportunity and fulfillment for me. To do this with a host site that is as welcoming and friendly as a site could possibly be, makes it very special. Thank you Nate Dykema DPT, Kelly Marsman PT, DPT, Kevin Proctor DPT, and Craig Stasio PT so much! To do this with a faculty member, whom I have developed so much respect for over the last few years, is even more life-affirming. Skip George DC, CCSP,CSCS, PRC has been preparing and “dreaming” about teaching this course since he became a PRC in 2014. He has talked to Mike Cantrell MPT,PRC , and me, about the course content and delivery of material since he learned he would be teaching it. He has applied and postured himself, in my opinion, to do this type of work early on his career. He has been a speaker for the Postural Restoration Institute since 2016 and has been so well received by his Postural Respiration course attendees. I asked Hannah Janssen, our Education Coordinator, how would Skip’s course attendees describe him. She quickly responded by saying, “ they feel that Skip works hard at making things understandable and he is passionate about the science and application of PRI”. I agree with her so much. As a chiropractor he understands universal mindsets and applications. We are so fortunate, as an Institute, to have him help us move forward these universal messages in the professional and personal manner he uses.
I believe our understanding of the cervical relationship to pattern development, dominance and dysfunction of the cranium and thorax will be satisfactorily broken down from a PRI perspective by Mike and Skip. They both have been instrumental in the present design, material covered and the flow of the delivery the last few months. If there was an ‘Impingement and Instability’ course for the neck, it would be, in my mind, this one. And both of these speakers integrate pertinent PRI universal concepts of vision, teeth, tongue, and the feet at understandable and applicable levels. I am so grateful for this.
If you have not taken this course, and have met the requirements, consider taking it. If you have taken this course and I was the presenter, consider taking it again from one of these two speakers. The perspective and the manner in how it is presented will be worth your repeated time and expense.
