We are excited to announce and congratulate the Postural Restoration Certified (PRC) Class of 2013! PRS is the result of completing multiple advanced PRI courses, demonstrating a thorough understanding of the science through completion of the PRC application, and successfully participating in practical and analytical testing. Twenty-six PT's and PTA's earned the designation of Postural Restoration Certified (PRC) under the direction of Ron Hruska, James Anderson, Mike Cantrell, and Jennifer Gloystein.

The Postural Restoration Institute established a certification process in 2004 as a way to recognize and identify those 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. Certification is available to physical therapists, physical therapist assistants and occupational therapists who have attended PRI courses, demonstrated a thorough understanding of the science through completion of the PRC application, and successfully participate in both clinical and analytical testing. To date 123 Therapists have earned the designation of Postural Restoration Certified (PRC).

This is an exciting opportunity to be a part of a growing, dynamic practice that offers an innovative and personal approach to spine and back pain management, sports medicine, physical therapy and injury prevention. We help our patients understand the biomechanics of their bodies natural movement, giving them the knowledge and tools to recover quickly and prevent additional injury.

We offer a strong, competitive salary and benefits package. Interested candidates should email us at with their resume and salary requirements.

For those traveling to Lincoln this week for the annual Advanced Integration course, I would recommend packing layers of clothing as the forecast looks like a cold one!

Wellsboro, PA (Myokinematic Restoration) – I had a great weekend teaching a Myokinematics of the Hip and Pelvis in Wellsboro, PA.  Wellsboro is a quaint little town home to the Grand Canyon!  Who knew? The majority of the group of PT’s, ATC’s and massage therapists were all taking their first PRI course. It never gets old watching new clinicians switch gears from an orthopedic mindset to the power of Respiration and Neurology. I often find a few clinicians that become “My Key Muscles” for the course. Here I am flanked by two good sports, Dan the Man Right Glut Max on my right and Eyebrows Eric was my Left Glut Medius. I just love teaching this course for the Postural Restoration Institute. I look forward to taking a break from a busy fall schedule to spend time with my family and enjoy the holiday season! Thanks to all my students in 2013 for sharing their insights and laughing at my not always funny jokes! Peace.- Jen Poulin

Salem, OR (Cervical-Cranio-Mandibular Restoration) – “This TMCC course was enhanced not only by the forward thinking, well-prepared attendees, but by a cranio-mandibular dentist who contributed greatly. What a great opportunity for future course attendees….find a local dentist to work with and get them to come to the course with you. Salem Health is a great host site! This course will continue to evolve in the future and bridge thoracic-pelvic treatment to cranio function and OA position, as a result of experiences that I had at Salem and will have at other future presentations.” – Ron Hruska
