We are excited to introduce and congratulate our second Postural Restoration Trained (PRT) Class of this year! Every 3rd year, we offer the option of a summer testing program, in addition to the annual PRT testing dates that are held each January. This summer testing program was rescheduled from last year due to the COVID pandemic, so a few of these individuals have waited an extra year for this opportunity. 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, four professionals earned the designation of Postural Restoration Trained (PRT) under the direction of Ron Hruska, Jason Masek 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 Athletic Trainers (with Certification through the BOC), Athletic Therapists (with Certification through the CATA), Strength and Conditioning Coaches (with CSCS Certification through the NSCA or SCCC Certification through the CSCCa), Certified Special Population Specialist (with CSPS Certification through the NSCA, and completion of a Bachelor's degree or higher degree), and Exercise Physiologists (with Certification through the ACSM) who have completed the course requirements, application and testing process. With the addition of this class, there are now 63 PRT professionals throughout the U.S and Internationally.
