For those of you who know Ron pretty well or if you saw his Twitter posting yesterday, you have realized that he likes to know “What’s your story?” He enjoyed reading these recent emails this past week! Thanks for sharing!
I can’t tell you how excited I am by the work that you’ve done (and are doing), bringing together concepts and techniques from various disciplines, and building a unique and incredibly insightful approach to physical therapy examination, evaluation and treatment. I realize that your work (as all of our work) is built on the shoulders of others, and I am not prone to hyperbole, nor have I ever had a hero; still, I am awed by the genius of your constructions. I am reeling a bit from all of the information I have received in taking 3 of PRI’s courses in the last month, but everything I have learned has resonated strongly. There are many patients who I haven’t been able to help, many more who I could never take to 100%, and I’ve always been very aware that I was missing something. Though I have treated very few patients with the PRI approach thus far, I am convinced that this is the missing link. I am a bit of a continuing ed junkie, have taken many hundreds of hours of courses (most of them excellent) and am in the process of completing my DPT degree, but I have never encountered coursework that was this inspiring. It seems that you are grossly under-appreciated in the physical therapy world and I just want to thank you for all you have done and all you continue to do!

All of you guys at PRI are amazing! I hope that you know how important each of your roles is. PRI is really changing the lives of countless individuals each and every single day. It is not only the lives of the patients, but the family members and also the clinicians that are using this. I, for one, was super frustrated with being a PT and was feeling pretty much like I was wasting my time before I fell into a PRI course. It was the first course that Jen Poulin had taught and it literally has changed my life. I know that it is easy to get bogged down in our daily lives and our work and to feel like what we are doing is just ‘work’ or doesn’t impact people, but it does. - Lori S
