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 Postural Restoration Certified (PRC) credentialing program is available to physical therapists, physical therapist assistants, occupational therapists and chiropractors who have attended PRI courses (scroll down to view the required coursework), 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 individuals have earned the designation of Postural Restoration Certified (PRC) under the direction of Ron Hruska.

The fee will also assist us in developing the process, advancing individual knowledge of Postural Restoration Institute® concepts and in growing a network of professional support.
