Essex Junction, VT
Home of Essex Physical Therapy and it’s famous PRC Owner Estelle Leclair MSPT, PRC. Estelle’s clinic has the only modern PRISM pool in the country! Impact Physical Medicine and Aquatic Center in St. Paul, MN has the original prototype and Essex has the latest state-of-the-art iteration of the famous PRISM Pool. Yes, the one developed by Ron Hruska. Estelle and her husband Jeff decided that it was time to truly move forward and be the first in the nation to put into action this amazing PRI-based pool! I got in it and it was awesome!
During the weekend while I was there I taught Impingement and Instability (I&I) to about 30 great clinicians and we had more fun than a clown on fire!! For those of you not familiar, I&I is a deep-dive advanced course that explores exactly WHY people impinge body parts and have pain. You may be thinking that I am making it sound as though they have a choice. They DO! We choose to impinge and if you ever make it to this class you will discover not only WHY but also what to do about it. You will learn that every orthopaedic site of Impingement is actually the end result of neurologic phenomena. Sound wack?! Listen to what one of the attendants said from this past weekend in VT. “I cannot believe that we could so easily correct what seems to be hard and fast positioning! Your demonstrations sealed the deal for me! I will NEVER look at a rotator cuff impingement syndrome the same again...EVER!!” You can also find yourself seeing the light through a lovely purple filter as well by taking this course. Oh, and if you’ve taken it before, keep in mind: A lot may have changed since then so it may be time to revisit! God bless you all!!
