As I browsed Facebook last night, I came across a couple PRC colleagues (thanks Torin Berge and Emily Soiney) who had shared this NY Times article “Growing Left, Growing Right” with their friends. The title was enough to catch my attention, but then I read this quote “Visible signs of left-right asymmetry in the human body are apparent around six weeks (embryonic).” I instantly shared it with my friends, but couldn’t wait to share it with Ron this morning. “WOW!” were the words from his mouth.

Julie Blandin, PT, ATC, CSCS, PRC recently completed an Introduction to Postural Restoration® webinar presentation which is currently featured on Sportsrehabexpert.com and Strengthcoach.com. The presentation is titled “Bridging the Gap for the PRI Science into the Fitness and Sports Industry.”

If you are interested in Postural Restoration® and applying it into the sports rehab, performance and fitness environment, be sure to listen to Julie’s webinar. You can also access the power point handouts HERE!

A PRI course attendee, Lilla Marhefka sent me this recent article on the right diaphragm function in subjects experiencing chronic low back pain with structural spine disorders and in those who have no history of low back pain or structural disorders (control group). Diaphragm motion and shape was recorded from MRI recordings when postural demands on the body were increased (hip flexion demands were increased). A statistical analysis showed that the diaphragm respiratory and postural changes were significantly slower, bigger in size and better balanced in the control group.  When a load was applied to the lower limbs, the pathological subjects were mostly not able to maintain the respiratory diaphragm function, which was lowered significantly. Subjects from the control group showed more stable parameters of both respiratory and postural function. In their conclusion, the researchers state that the facts also support the ability of the diaphragm to play a key role in maintaining the good stability of the trunk. It is also important that they were able to separate the phases of diaphragm movement.  Postural motions of the diaphragm could predict dispositions to vertebrogenic problems or could help when seeking to correct these problems. This is an excellent research study that supports PRI philosophy and principles. Thank you Lilla!

Bartlett, IL (Postural Respiration) - It was a pleasure to integrate all weekend with so many rehab professionals who are used to an integrated model of practice. A big thanks to Joel Anderson and also Pat, Mike and the entire staff at Olympia Chiropractic and Physical Therapy for being great hosts and for being so open to incorporating new ideas into what already started out as interdisciplinary practice model. Anita Panagiotis, PRC was a great assistant in the manual lab and throughout the course! Thanks for bringing your daughter Noelle to her first PRI course while she is still a student.  Loved having her. - James Anderson

Minneapolis, MN (Impingement & Instability) - It rained in Minnesota! So the entire class (that included several PRC therapists) was glad to be indoors. Enthusiastic questions and paradigm shifting each hour had the class room quaking as the thunder rolled. By Sunday afternoon we realized that the primary rainfall came in the form of information pouring down. So the lightning may have been electrical, but knowledge is power! - Mike Cantrell
