Well, once again I feel that I have neglected my summer reading series, but I hope to get a couple more posts completed yet this month. On Friday afternoon, one of PRI’s Twitter followers, tweeted a great article, which has now been added to the PRI Resource Center. AJ’s tweet attached to the article read “This is why head/neck position matters for all exercises including lower body.”

Some of you may have already seen this article which was published in the Chiropractic & Osteopathy Journal in 2005. The article, “Reflex control of the spine and posture: A review of the literature from a chiropractic perspective” does a great job summarizing the influence of visual and vestibular input on static upright posture.

PRC Therapist Emily Soiney contributed to my summer weekly reading series this week when she shared an article with me over the weekend! The Association Between Asymmetric Hip Mobility and Neck Pain in Young Adults was recently published in the Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics by Lee et al. Unfortunately this article is not available free online, however you can purchase the text here!

The summarize, the objective of this cross-sectional observational study was to determine whether asymmetric hip mobility was associated with neck pain in young adults. They evaluated hip ROM using the Patrick’s FABERE test on 327 freshman university students (48 in the neck pain group). The results indicated that the frequency of asymmetric hip mobility (FABERE test results) among the students who reported chronic neck pain was significantly higher than that of those without neck pain. The concluded as a result of their study, that imbalanced mobility of the hip joints might be associated with an increased incidence of neck pain.

Needless to say, this article has been added to the PRI Resource Library! Thanks again Emily for sharing it with us!

It’s so hard to believe that it is already August 1st! Where has the summer gone?

This comes as a reminder that applications for the PRI credentialing programs, Postural Restoration Certified (PRC) and Postural Restoration Trained (PRT) are quickly approaching! PRC applications are due on September 15th, and PRT applications are due on October 15th.

Are you nearing completion of your PRC or PRT application? If so, there are benefits to submitting your application early! Some benefits include:

  • Early submissions are given to the review committee immediately, and feedback is returned to the applicant within 6 weeks!
  • Stress-free life (from your application at least) for the remainder of the summer! 
  • After you hear from the review committee, you are able to begin planning your travel arrangements for the PRC or PRT testing process, and hopefully get some great travel deals!

A couple PT’s have already submitted their PRC application, and have received feedback from the review committee. I am sure they are relaxing by the pool now!
