IMG Performance Institute in Bradenton, Florida is the newest site for PRI courses! James Anderson will be instructing Myokinematic Restoration on June 25-26.

We couldn’t be more excited to collaborate with this organization! Myokinematic Restoration explores the biomechanics of contralateral and ipsilateral myokinematic lumbo-pelvic-femoral dysfunction. The human body is not symmetrical. This course will explain patterns of asymmetry and offer techniques for assessment and treatment with consideration for neutrality, position, and respiration. Postural Restoration concepts are key factors in performance of athletes from all ages and abilities.

From Trevor Moawad, Director, IMG Performance Institute.  “We have a comprehensive approach to injury management and rehabilitation at the IMG Performance Institute.  We feel that it is necessary for our clinicians to practice the best pathways towards returning our youth, elite and professional athletes back to their sport as quickly and safely as possible.  That is why we are excited to have our clinicians go through the Myokinematic Restoration course.”

It’s raining here in Nebraska and as I walk on the slippery, wet surfaces I can’t help but reflect on how our patient’s must feel when they can’t feel their heels strike or sense what centering over a lower extremity is all about, because of uni-planar learned behavior and lateralization in their attempt to move without falling.  What a difference left heel strike made on the waterlogged path I was on this morning.  I could walk from place to place and dodge the wettest surfaces without locking up my back, my knees or my spatial perspective.  I feel blessed to understand the importance of left AF IR and right trunk rotation so that my reciprocal respiration and peripheral vision can remain peripatetic.

This is the most recent article being added to PRI’s library.  This article was just published in the JOSPT journal in May.  “This article reported on patients with clinical evidence of an acetabular labrum tear, confirmed with MRI.  All patients responded well to a nonsurgical program that emphasized hip and lumbopelvic stabilization, correction of muscular imbalance, and sport-specific functional progression.”  If you are a member of the JOSPT, you can access the article HERE!

Over the past twelve years we’ve collaborated with countless private practice clinics, hospitals, medical centers, and universities to bring PRI courses to clinicians across the country (and beyond!). If you have hosted a PRI course we want to feature you! Email me photos of your building or staff, stories of PRI course material implementation, or other information you’d like to share. We look forward to learning more about your organization and sharing it with our viewers!
