The Postural-Visual Integration course will only be offered on two occasions prior to the 9th Annual Interdisciplinary Integration Symposium scheduled on April 20-21, 2017. By attending the Postural-Visual Integratoin course, you will gain a better understanding on how vision influences the centering of body mass when in a single stance, and how over-focusing influences foot placement. This information will enhance the processing and application of information provided at the Spring Interdisciplinary Integration Symposium on Induced Destabilization, Interpersonal Synchronization and Depatterning through Visual Perspectives. You therefore may want to consider attending a Postural-Visual Integration course in early 2017 in either Chapel Hill, NC on Feb 4-5th, or Minneapolis, MN on Mar 11-12th, if you are planning on attending the 9th Annual Interdisciplinary Symposium and have not yet taken the Postural-Visual Integration course.

We are excited to announce and congratulate the Postural Restoration Certified (PRC) Class of 2016! PRC credentialing is the result of completing multiple advanced PRI courses, demonstrating a thorough understanding of the science through completion of the PRC application, and successfully participating in practical and analytical testing. Thirteen Physical Therapists and two Physical Therapy Assistants earned the designation of Postural Restoration Certified (PRC) under the direction of Ron Hruska, James Anderson, Mike Cantrell, and Jennifer Platt earlier this week.

The Postural Restoration Institute established a certification process in 2004 as a way to recognize and identify those individuals with advanced training, extraordinary interest and devotion to the science of postural adaptations, asymmetrical patterns and the influence of polyarticular chains of muscles on the human body as defined by the Postural Restoration Institute. The PRC credentialing program is available to physical therapists, physical therapist assistants, occupational therapists, and chiropractors who have attended PRI courses, demonstrated a thorough understanding of the science through completion of the PRC application, and successfully participate in both clinical and analytical testing. To date, 174 professionals have earned the designation of Postural Restoration Certified (PRC).
