“This course was a good course from a standpoint that there were beginners, intermediates and veterans of PRI in the room - which is a blessing for everyone in attendance, including the speaker! The attendees in the room who were still trying to put the “pieces” together really helped strengthen the Guidelines for Right BC Treatment document. These suggestions and recommendations have been recognized and will benefit all future course attendees. Thank you Sioux Falls for a great weekend!”

Mike Arthur, CSCS is the keynote speaker and will lead off day one of the Interdisciplinary Integration Symposium on April 11th, 2013! Mike is in his 36th year with the Nebraska Athletic Department, and in January 2008, he was promoted to Director of Strength and Conditioning for the athletic department. Ron has known Mike for over 15 years.

“I am very excited to have Mike as the keynote speaker for our 2013 symposium! During the years of working with Mike, I have observed some strong characteristics - Mike is consistent and a predictable thinker. He is one of the nicest guys I know and is respectful of everyone’s suggestions and approaches. I admire his open-mindedness in implementing strength and conditioning concepts. Mike is very analytical and his analytical mind makes him evidence-based and therefore he gravitates towards programs based on strong scientific backgrounds. Mike will offer a personal perspective, based on his 36 years of experience in the field and his success with integrating PRI into his program. His strong belief of safe strength training with an emphasis on injury prevention is why Mike is our 2013 keynote speaker. ” -Ron Hruska

I came across this quote this week, and couldn’t help but be drawn to it!
Have a great weekend!

This past weekend was the busiest weekend of PRI courses all year! Here is a synopsis from each of the faculty for the four courses:

St. Louis, MO (Postural Respiration) - Mike Cantrell wrote:
“In St. Louis I taught respiration
To clinicians from all over the nation
They all seemed to get it
On that you can bet it
Cuz they were smiling as they left for their stations.”

Rapid City, SD (Pelvis Restoration): “We had a powerful weekend discussing how inlet position gives the outlet power and how your PRI tests guide your treatment approach!” - Lori Thomsen

Phoenix, AZ (Myokinematic Restoration): “The Phoenix Myokinematic Restoration course was fantastic! Besides the 70 degree weather, we had a great mix of therapists, athletic trainers and strength coaches enthusiastic about the science. The growing interest among MLB professionals is more and more evident! - James Anderson

Alexandria, LA (Postural Respiration) - Ron Hruska taught a private course for friend he has known for over 25 years. “I had the most rewarding and refreshing weekend….to teach and demonstrate PRI to doctors of general medicine, pain medicine, physiatry, orthopedics and surgery, physical therapists, a physician assistant, and pre-PT and medical school students. Louisiana hospitality at its best! Thanks Oday!

Mike Cantrell was recently featured on a local news television station for his work in Postural Restoration with professional athletes and athletic teams. In addition to teaching PRI courses to many PT’s, ATC’s and strength coaches from several professional athletic organizations over the past couple years, Mike had the opportunity over this past year to work with two-time Olympic sprinter Derrick Atkins, who sought out Mike for his expertise in Postural Restoration.

Mike further explains his approach in treating athletes with Postural Restoration. “If a patient has hip pain, I’m going to say that has to do with the inability to move your pelvis, and I have a rib cage on top of that pelvis that must move, and I have a head and a neck on that rib cage, and I’ve got arms that hang off that rib cage that must move, Cantrell explained. I want to address every level of those components.”

We are excited to announce and congratulate the Postural Restoration Trained Class of 2013! 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. Four individuals earned the designation of Postural Restoration Trained (PRT) under the direction of Ron Hruska, Jason Masek and Jennifer Gloystein.

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 Certified Athletic Trainers and Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialists who have completed the requirements.

PRT credentialed athletic trainers and strength and conditioning specialists offer a unique approach to physical medicine called Postural Restoration. This approach addresses underlying biomechanics which can often lead to symptoms of pain and dysfunction. All mechanical influences on the body that restrict movement and contribute to improper joint and muscle position are considered, examined, and assessed. Techniques are utilized to restore proper alignment of the body while proper respiratory dynamics are considered. Treatment encompasses prevention and lifetime integration for long-term successful outcomes.
