Over the years James has provided course instruction and consultation to thousands of physicians, physical therapists, occupational therapists, chiropractors, athletic trainers, personal trainers, strength and conditioning coaches, fitness instructors and movement enthusiasts. His expertise blending respiration, neurology and biomechanics has led to sports performance consultation opportunities for a wide variety of collegiate and professional athletic organizations. James was a member of the first class to earn the designation of Postural Restoration Certified (PRC) as a result of 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 Institute (PRI) is built around 30 years of clinical practice associated with recurring successes of specific patient treatment programs. We established reproducible, outcome-based programs based on consistent evidence-based correlations, discovered with patient biomechanical, respiratory, and neurological functional patterns and limitations. My passion for the integrated systems of the body has resulted in an examination and intervention process of the asymmetrical human body called Postural Restoration.
