"I was tired of practicing and applying correctives that didn't always fix problems. PRI, has an amazing integration of neurological recruitment and immediate physiological change that other techniques can't touch. Disease has always played a huge factor in breathing pathologies and this course shows you how to teach people to breathe and be functional. I'm so thankful for Ron Hruska, and his team. My clinical life has changed and will never be the same."

Course Information

We have taken video from the live 15-hour lecture and lab course including Power Point slides, demonstration, lab, and audience question and answer sessions. This home study course is available online/digital which allows for viewing in the comfort of your home or office. You will have 21 days to complete the home study from the time you receive online access.

This advanced lecture and lab course is structured so that clinicians will gain an appreciation for the patterned respiration influences on: rib torsion, asymmetrical oblique strength, costal and crural function, habitual use of accessory respiratory musculature, and a positionally restricted diaphragm. The focus of this course will be to assess and restore polyarticular muscular chain function of both hemi-lateral thoraxes and their respective pleura. Treatment interventions including manual and non-manual techniques to restore reciprocal and alternating respiratory and rotational function of the thorax will be covered. Participants will be able to immediately apply PRI clinical assessment and intervention strategies when treating diagnoses that are related to undesirable airflow patterns, such as shortness of breath, thoracic outlet syndrome, and shoulder dysfunction.

  • Recognize relationships between static asymmetrical respiration, ideal physiologic respiration, and patterned respiration.
  • Identify how to restore restrictive polyarticular chains and torsional patterns of the trunk through specific manual and non-manual orientation of ventilatory muscle, and thoracic osseous structure.
  • Recognize how to maximize thoracic scapular force couples, rib alignment, and abdominal-diaphragm muscle integration for appropriate motor and sensory perceptual skill development of the upper extremities.
  • Outline how to design a postural isolation and inhibition program that promotes integration of appropriate hemi-thoracic airflow to reduce occupational, leisure, and sleep breathing dysfunction patterns.
