It is always great to teach material where there are individuals that are assisting the understanding of the course material, objectives and application. We always try to balance out our PRI courses with adequate assistance from “lab assistants” based on number of course attendees. We had two wonderful assistants scheduled, Miquel Aragoncillo BS, CSCS, ACSM, HF, PRT and Frank Mallon PT, DPT, PRC, two of the nicest and genuine people I know. However, we also were gifted with a number of other “assistants” that helped make this two days clinically resonate. First of all a big shout out to Katherine Dixon DPT who was the perfect subject with a non-pathologic TMCC and a beautiful underlying LAIC/RBC. Without her we would not have had one of the most ideal set of outcomes she displayed with pre and post testing, using Cervical Revolution methodology and assessment recommendations. We all saw and experienced an unforgettable demonstration that was at times even surreal for me. Perfection! Wish we would have had Matt Hornung there to video this and the solid results correlating with testing procedure revolving around the neck. Byron Curletto CMT, CPT beautifully demonstrated the correct way to carry out the Standing Cervical-Cranial Repositioning PRI technique, while Kristen Wilson PT,DPT, GCS objectively showed us how to carry out the Supine Active Sacro-Sphenoid Flexion PRI technique and objectively demonstrate to her husband, Michael Wilson PT,DPT, OCS that her neck symptoms are real and appear to be coming from the neck as a result of her mandibular pattern and malocclusion. They were instructed to go out on a date night after the course. .. hope they will if they haven’t yet. Dr. Howard Hindin DDS was there with Brad Gilden PT, DPT, CFMT, FAAOMPT, CSCS and enlightened and reinforced material that was complimenting their efforts through The American Academy of Physiological Medicine and Dentistry. I am looking forward to spending time with them in Puerto Rico and further present, collaborate and discuss the importance of establishing “neutral” airways in all of our patients. Jon Herting PT, DPT, CSCS not only helped The Training Room Physical Therapy schedule and host this weekend course, but also did a great job in assisting administratively and with our nourishment needs. Nancy Brown NSCA CPT allowed us to visually see how a person with a cranium that is in a Right Torsional position can benefit from PRI, by placing her pre and post pictures in the Powerpoint. All of these people were my “assistants” and without them this course and its direction would have been significantly stymied! So to all these who attended and all of these assistants. Thank you.
