A big shout out to Water Sports and Physical Therapy for hosting Pelvis Restoration this past weekend in San Diego, CA.    The 40 plus course attendees dove into the complexity of what we all know as AFIR (IPIR) and AFER (IPER).   I feel they gained an understanding that if we don’t have tri-planar control of a pelvis we won’t have control of a femur or a thorax.  We really hit inhibition of the inlet and outlet to assist with clinical outcomes.   I had the awesome help of lab assistants Caleb Chiu, CSCS, PRT and Skip George, DC, PRC.  Although I wasn’t able to run along the ocean this trip (it was dark going to work and coming back), it gave me great joy to assist these practitioners on their PRI journey with 17 attendees being newbies!

Dave Drummer, PRC, therapist at The Hruska Clinic shows a unqiue way to improve balloon blowing technique for those people who struggle to find the power to get air into the balloon. This technique, that originated at the Hruska Clinic, is taught as a core exercise through the Postural Restoration Institute and has been adapted and utilized to assist in treating anyone from the geriatric population to college athletics and professional sports teams.  Click HERE to see the video.

I kicked off my 2016 teaching schedule not too far from home!  This was a real treat for me to teach in my home state of NC.  Joe, Mark, Jessica and Kerry from Architech Sports were awesome hosts.  I enjoyed teaching the concepts of AF and FA as it relates to pattern human asymmetry during upright gait.  I had diverse group of clinicians that all were excited to learn all about the fundamentals of PRI.  I even got to experience my own parasympathetics reading Dr. Seuss to my niece in the evening!!

I recently had the chance to sit down with Ron and talk about this year’s Interdisciplinary Integration: Sound Effects on Posture: An Interdisciplinary Approach to Enhance Sensory Processing. If you have any questions about what will and won’t be discussed, feel free to contact me HERE.

First Call Home Health knows how to host a course! Mike Cantrell and I really enjoyed presenting the Cervical Revolution course material in their beautiful building and to their staff of both OTs and PTs who have taken many PRI courses in the past.  I honestly enjoyed receiving questions from attendees who do so much with the geriatric population and integrating cervical-cranial PRI concepts with all the attendees, and a dentist as they relate to all ages and many different patients and symptoms and diagnoses.  I met some great people that I hope to meet again and will not forget how warm of a reception and the rewarding response Mike and I received.

We had 45 attendees at Pelvis Restoration this past weekend in Quincy, IL.  This course really gets into the “details” of tri-planar activity of AFIR and AFER of the pelvic inlet and outlet.  I felt the participants gained an understanding of how PRI tests can assist them with selecting the best activity to assist with inhibition and neuro-motor retraining for reciprocal and/or alternating function for their patient.  A big shout out to Natalie and the Advanced Physical Therapy crew for hosting this past weekend your passion for patient excellence is palpable.  Also, thanks Lori Brinkman and Nancy Hammond for being awesome lab assistants.

There are two beautiful PRI Aquatic pools laying in the Essex Physical Therapy building in Essex Junction, Vermont. I am so grateful for Estelle LeClair opening her Aquatic Center up for us on Saturday and Sunday last week and for hosting the first PRI Aquatics course. A number of Hruska Clinic and PRI Vision co-workers joined me and other course attendees interested in PRI Aquatic theory, science and application. The first day was entirely devoted to the hydrodynamic influences on motor attention, sensory-motor planning and upright performance as provided by the PRIORI pool stations. Applying PRI Aquatic concepts and PRI Non-Manual techniques to conventional pool designs and programs was so enjoyable and very helpful to those who attended and filled out an evaluation on the course. Overview of the PRISM pool science as related to patterned forward locomotion took place on the second day.  All course attendees had an opportunity to experience sequential, segmental flow and sensorial based outcomes from each pool and station, or chamber. It was so rewarding to get back into these pools and experience something that is not felt without this type of flow and directed water to integrate and redirect and readapt. On a personal note, my son, RJ felt his left abdominal obliques for the first time, while experiencing directed water flow to references that were programmed in the Hip Lounge station. He works out on dry land on a regular basis and has difficulty sensing and experiencing specific ab wall contraction. So cool.....Hopefully, in 2017 we will do this again at the IMPACT Physical Medicine and Prism Aquatic Center in Minneapolis, MN!
