Phoenix, AZ (Postural Respiration) - "What a memorable weekend in Chandler, Arizona with a super group of professionals and a lot of respiration and neurology. MLB trainers and strength staff from the New York Yankees, Chicago Cubs and St. Louis Cardinals organizations complimented an outstanding group of physical therapists and rehab professionals for a super weekend of learning. Of particular interest were three student physical therapists in attendance who are way ahead of their time, in terms of progressive thinking on advanced topics. Thank you Joe, Pete and Matt for your passion and drive to understand performance of the human body. You guys inspire me and give me hope for the leadership that will be required for the next generation of physical therapists. And a big thank you to Riesal Mikael, for traveling to America all the way from Singapore to study PRI!  We are grateful you would seek out the science of Postural Restoration and felt a connection with you in terms of the way you think about human movement and performance.  Can't wait to see you again in Vegas next month!  And lastly, thank you to my new friend Orlando Crance, from Puerto Rico, I mean the Dominican Republic (inside joke) for joining me for such a neat evening out to dinner and to tour the Gilbert, Arizona temple open house on Saturday evening. Professional connections like that make all the craziness of a busy travel schedule more than worth it. I look forward to staying in touch and learning more from you. This weekend was so much fun it didn't even seem like work! - James Anderson

St. Louis, MO (Pelvis Restoration) - St. Louis was rockin’ PRI this past weekend. We had a full course with strength and conditioning coaches, PT’s, PTA’s, Athletic Trainers, and a MD. Integrating professionals and integrating respiratory and pelvic diaphragms. I feel the class appreciated how stance and swing phase positions influences the ability for these diaphragms to ascend or descend. Ironically, as we know in PRI, these positions are not occurring at the same time during gait. Therefore, left stance and right swing phase positions influence left and right respiratory and pelvic diaphragm position. They got it! - Lori Thomsen

Brian Rothbart, DPM, PhD, DN recently emailed me his most recent publication titled "Prescriptive Proprioceptive Insoles and Dental Orthotics Change the Frontal Plane Position of the Atlas (C1), Mastoid, Malar, Temporal, and Sphenoid Bones: A Preliminary Study". This article will surely be enjoyed by PRI enthusiasts across the country!

This article has been added to the PRI library, as well as the reference list for the Impingement & Instability and Cervical-Cranio-Mandibular Restoration courses. The results of this study do support that changes in frontal plane position of the cranial and atlas bones can occur when using proprioceptive insoles and/or dental orthotics.

We are excited to announce and congratulate the Postural Restoration Trained Class of 2014! 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. With the addition of this class, there are now 18 PRT professionals throughout the U.S.

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.

Congratulations!
