We recently came across an article in the International Journal of Osteopathic Medicine on breathing, that cited an article published by Ron Hruska.  This is a fantastic article on dysfunctional breathing that we highly recommend you read!

“Breathing affects motor control and postural stability and plays several roles in physiological and psychological regulation.  Breathing becomes dysfunctional when the person is unable to breathe efficiently or when breathing is inappropriate, unhelpful, or inefficient in responding to environmental conditions and the changing needs of the individual”.

We are excited to announce that our Myokinematic Restoration and Postural Respiration courses will be available for Home Study next year.  This means that you will be able to watch the course from the comfort of your home or office! You will no longer need to worry about travel expenses, time away from work or family.  It works like this:

  • You place your order for the course of your choice
  • We ship you a course manual and a set of DVD’s
  • You complete a post test following the DVD
  • We send you a prepaid envelope to ship the DVD’s back to PRI
  • You receive a Certificate of Completion

Between now and the end of the year, we will determine which states require pre-approval of Home Study courses for continuing education credit.  If you are interested in this opportunity please contact us so we can check into CE approval for your state!

Ron Hruska, Jason Masek and Gregory Parfianowicz will be traveling to Warsaw this September to present at the 1st International Congress of Polish Rehabilitation. This presentation follows Michal Niedzielski and Gregory Parfianowicz successful instruction of our Myokinematic Restoration course last year. We are excited about the continued expansion of Postural Restoration in Poland and the opportunity to educate internationally!  

“The Congress will be held on September 10 – 13, 2009 at the University of Economics and Computer Science in Warsaw. The outstanding specialists in rehabilitation and physiotherapy, physicians dealing with these branches, researchers and students of rehabilitation and physiotherapy from academic centres worldwide will participate in the Congress. We expect around 1000 participants from Poland and other countries (it is worth mentioning that there are over 20,000 specialists in physiotherapy and rehabilitation in Poland). Apart from scientific sessions and the widely understood context of physiotherapy and rehabilitation, we are planning to organize Therapeutic Panel Meetings.” For more information, click here.

Look at all the asymmetry going on in this x-ray!  Notice the size difference in the obturator foramens, the asymmetry in the pelvic floor opening and the difference between the left and right head of the femurs.  This is a classic example of a Left AIC pelvis!
