"Virginia is for (PRI) lovers". The state slogan fit in perfectly this weekend at fellow PRC Julie Blandin's beautiful clinic, Thrive Proactive Health. Craig Depperschmidt, DPT, PRC and myself tag teamed teaching Myokinematic Restoration to a room full of PTs, ATCs, LMTs, personal trainers, a DC, and even a PA. There wasn't a dull moment all weekend and the energy was contagious from the attendees. Our first day was full of "learning the PRI lingo" and basics of the left AIC pattern as well as the influence it has on the position of the lumbo-pelvic-femoral complex. We ended the day with lab and using 5 tests to determine the position of the left and right pelvis starting with the Adduction Drop Test. The second day was up and moving (literally) as half of the day was spent in lab using the Hruska Adduction and Abduction lift tests to help determine treatment. We went through the myokinematic hierarchy techniques and inhibition techniques along with the rationale for each. All in all, it was an excellent weekend with PRI enthusiasists!
