"System Integrational Dilemmas" was the title of the presentation Ron Hruska gave to the PRC therapists this past weekend. Over the next few days, I will share with you topics highlighted during this presentation.
To help you better understand the information presented in this talk you should appreciate the difference between a system and a dilemma:
System – The human body regarded as a functional physiological unit
Dilemma – A situation that requires a choice between options, usually equally unfavorable or mutually exclusive
Most PRI dilemmas are reduced or resolved (albeit temporarily) by:
1. Not approaching the dilemma as ‘head on feet’ or ‘feet influences on head’ issues.
2. Focusing more on frontal plane muscle that is not integrating with it’s ‘family’.
3. Co-contracting left IO’s and TA’s during inhalation in a lumbar-thoracic flexion state.
4. Facilitating ‘Left Stance in Right AF IR Position from the Right AIC Pattern’ or by delaying ‘Left Stance in Left AF IR Position from the Left AIC Pattern’ (see previous Techniques of the Week).
5. Reinforcing proprioceptive and mechanoreceptor ‘feel’ and movement of right apical expansion in a left thoracic abducted state.
Stay tuned to learn the other five reasons PRI dilemmas are reduced or resolved…
