Blog Posts in 2013

Over the past couple weeks, a few PT's from across the country have emailed me this story from the New York Times Health and Science Blog.The title of the story "Think Like a Doctor: The Gymnast’s Big Belly Solved" has caught the attention of several viewers. The final diagnosis involves a faulty diaphragm and pelvic floor. If you find this case interesting, you might be interested in attending our Pelvis Restoration course!

Also, a reminder.....if you find an interesting article or news story and would like to share it with other PRI colleagues, you can now submit an entry with the link to the article on the Community page of our new website!

Impingment and Instability - "After teaching the Impingement and Instability course in Everett, Washington, I reflected on the significance of this course and its objectives as they relate to inherent stability. We all have some degree of instability and some degree of stability....but choosing the amount of each will not be possible if one can't transition from the sagittal plane to the frontal and from the frontal to the transver plane. Both this course and the Postural Visual Integration course offer guidelines on 'transitional' stability." - Ron Hruska

Myokinematic Restoration - "I traveled to Montgomery, Alabama and taught Myokinematic Restoration to a small group of 15 eager PT’s, PTA’s and Pilates instructors.  All the PT’s and PTA’s (except one PT) were brand new to PRI and its principles and the entire class seemed very interested and excited to learn more about this fascinating science!" - Mike Cantrell

This is one of the best weeks of the year in PRI. It's so exciting to see all the Postural Restoration Certified (PRC) applications that have been rolling in over the past week, and continue to do so! I am anticipating our biggest PRC class yet! Thanks to everyone who has applied. You will receive feedback from the review committee within 4-6 weeks.

Missoula, MT (Pelvis Restoration) - "What a great weekend in MT teaching Pelvis Restoration!  Missoula, MT reminded me a lot of Burlington, VT.  I even had Aric in the course who understood the real VT state bird is not the Hermit Thrush, but the "Geezum Crow!". Thanks Aric for helping me feel at home on the other side of the country!  This group featured new attendees and seasoned PRI therapists.  It was fun to challenge those hearing about the science for the first time, and the 'Big Sky moments' of those familiar with PRI.  I myself felt the need for some Inlet inhibition after climbing the 'M' trail on Thursday afternoon.  The views were spectacular along with the hospitality of this group!  I look forward to any opportunity to visit my new friends in MT in the future!" - Jen Poulin

Well, once again I feel that I have neglected my summer reading series, but I hope to get a couple more posts completed yet this month. On Friday afternoon, one of PRI’s Twitter followers, tweeted a great article, which has now been added to the PRI Resource Center. AJ’s tweet attached to the article read “This is why head/neck position matters for all exercises including lower body.”

Some of you may have already seen this article which was published in the Chiropractic & Osteopathy Journal in 2005. The article, “Reflex control of the spine and posture: A review of the literature from a chiropractic perspective” does a great job summarizing the influence of visual and vestibular input on static upright posture.
