There I was in Hotlanta and as the rain poured down! 40 of us PRI nerds gathered at One On One Physical Therapy and spoke about all things Postural Respiration. I didn’t get to take very many pictures this time around because I was busier than a centipede at a toe-counting contest! Honestly, if I wasn’t answering questions...I was asking MORE questions. This audience was chock full of eager minds and new professionals visiting PRI concepts for the very first time. How honored I was to have the opportunity to go over the complexities of normal and abnormal respiration, the role of the diaphragm as a postural muscle and a respiratory muscle, rib kinematics as they relate to human asymmetry. I had two of my own former employees who are both Postural Restoration Certified (PRC) helping in the labs: Adrian Baker DPT, PRC and Kristin Spencer MPT, PRC. Adrian and Kristin were extremely helpful and valuable assets during the weekend and I am grateful to both of them. One On One Physical Therapy is a great host site and the facility was laid out nicely for a good class. Karen Davis Warren MPT, OCS, OTC made sure we had what we needed and I’m pretty sure she is planning on hosting another PRI course in the future. Present in the audience was Amos Mansfield ATC the head Athletic Trainer at Mercer University in Macon, GA. Amos is hosting Myokinematic Restoration at Mercer on March 3-4 and I would invite all to attend as this course dovetails very well with Postural Respiration. I look forward to seeing you all next month and in continuing PRI courses in the future. Let’s explore the science together!
