I have received a few excellent journal articles recently discussing the diaphragm! If you are interested in reading more about the anatomy of the diaphragm, and the role of the diaphram (more than just respiration), then be sure to check out these new references. They have been added to the PRI Library, as well as the reference list for the Postural Respiration course. And, the best news of all is that they are all available as Free PDF's online (see links below). Enjoy!

PRI goes to Sochi!

7 of the 10 athletes that comprise the USA luge team are posturally trained. Sean Fitzgerald MPT, PRC of Transitions Physical Therapy in Vermont has been working with the US luge team for the past 3 years. The challenges of a sports that is reliant on transverse power and sagittal mobility for an optimal start, followed by a ride dependent on the ability to remain as inhibited as possible lends itself very well to the postural approach.

Phoenix, AZ (Postural Respiration) - "What a memorable weekend in Chandler, Arizona with a super group of professionals and a lot of respiration and neurology. MLB trainers and strength staff from the New York Yankees, Chicago Cubs and St. Louis Cardinals organizations complimented an outstanding group of physical therapists and rehab professionals for a super weekend of learning. Of particular interest were three student physical therapists in attendance who are way ahead of their time, in terms of progressive thinking on advanced topics. Thank you Joe, Pete and Matt for your passion and drive to understand performance of the human body. You guys inspire me and give me hope for the leadership that will be required for the next generation of physical therapists. And a big thank you to Riesal Mikael, for traveling to America all the way from Singapore to study PRI!  We are grateful you would seek out the science of Postural Restoration and felt a connection with you in terms of the way you think about human movement and performance.  Can't wait to see you again in Vegas next month!  And lastly, thank you to my new friend Orlando Crance, from Puerto Rico, I mean the Dominican Republic (inside joke) for joining me for such a neat evening out to dinner and to tour the Gilbert, Arizona temple open house on Saturday evening. Professional connections like that make all the craziness of a busy travel schedule more than worth it. I look forward to staying in touch and learning more from you. This weekend was so much fun it didn't even seem like work! - James Anderson

St. Louis, MO (Pelvis Restoration) - St. Louis was rockin’ PRI this past weekend. We had a full course with strength and conditioning coaches, PT’s, PTA’s, Athletic Trainers, and a MD. Integrating professionals and integrating respiratory and pelvic diaphragms. I feel the class appreciated how stance and swing phase positions influences the ability for these diaphragms to ascend or descend. Ironically, as we know in PRI, these positions are not occurring at the same time during gait. Therefore, left stance and right swing phase positions influence left and right respiratory and pelvic diaphragm position. They got it! - Lori Thomsen
