Secondary Courses

The following courses require prior attendance of one or more Introductory Courses.

Course Description

This advanced lecture and demonstration course will explore issues of impingement and instability as they relate to the Left AIC and Right BC pattern and associated reference centers. Participants will be able to immediately apply PRI clinical assessment and management skills when treating diagnoses such as calcaneal instability, knee instability, hip impingement, ilium instability, scapular instability, shoulder impingement, and multidirectional HG and FA instability. Guidance will be offered in assessing ‘instability’ and ‘impingement’ as related to early and late pathologic function following the asymmetrical human developed pattern (Left AIC/Right BC) of unilateral dominance, habit, and consistent hand and foot usage.

* Prior attendance of both Myokinematic Restoration and Postural Respiration is required.

Educational Level: Advanced

Course Description

This advanced lecture and lab course places emphasis on the role the cervical spine plays in the management of cranial function and position. Intercervical, atlanto, occipital, and cranial assessment will help the clinician appreciate occiput, sphenoid and temporal orientation and thus how to proceed in determining what PRI manual or non-manual techniques should be considered. Correlations of airway obstruction, hyoid and vocal cord dysfunction, cervical and cranial symptomology, and temporal-mandibular dysfunction to the left sidebending or right torsion physiologic pattern will be discussed. Specific repatterning techniques will be offered for these two cranial positions of the Right Temporal Mandibular Cervical Chain (TMCC) pattern. Information will be provided on when and how to engage with a dentist regarding oral appliance intervention and fabrication. Participants will be able to immediately apply non-manual techniques to enhance normal functional cervical lordosis, active rotation and freedom for vestibular frontal plane integration.

* Prior attendance of Postural Respiration is required.

Educational Level: Advanced

Course Description

This advanced one day course will assist the dentist and the interdisciplinary team in the management of the hyoid and mandible (the sling bones), through the use of occlusal orthotics. Malalignment of the tongue, supra-hyoid, infra- mandibular, and masticatory musculature will be related to human occlusal and oro-pharyngeal asymmetry and functional patterns. Specific assessment tests and occlusal orthotic non-manual techniques that relate oral airway, occipital atlanto and occlusal authority to each other, will be offered and outlined for the dentist.

*Prior attendance of Cervical Revolution is recommended, but not required.

Educational Level: Advanced

Course Description

This four-day advanced lecture and demonstration course is structured so that clinicians will gain an appreciation for the relationship between pathomechanic and behavioral patterns. It is highly advanced and interactive, and reflects PRI concepts covered in the Myokinematic Restoration, Pelvis Restoration and Postural Respiration courses in a system-integrative fashion. Both non-pathologic compensatory and pathologic compensatory issues as they relate to the Left AIC and Right BC pattern will be expored in great detail. Anatomy, examination tests, algorithms, and manual and non-manual techniques will be presented with focus on total body integration rather than on individual regions of the body. Participants will be able to immediately apply concepts of synchronous breathing, tri-planar integration and thoracic scapular integration in the treatment and management of typical compensatory and non-compensatory musculoskeletal patterns, and pathologic and non-pathologic curvature of the spine, including intervention with daily occupational demands and challenges. This course enables the participant to advance integration of PRI concepts and principles by taking into consideration all patterned muscles outlined in the PRI Primary Courses.

*Prior attendance of Myokinematic Restoration, Postural Respiration and Pelvis Restoration is required.

Education Level: Advanced

Course Description

This workshop is designed to offer the attendee, who has taken the PRI primary courses the opportunity to further understand the intricacies of the PRI non-manual techniques. Each primary course has specific non-manual technique programs designed to isolate, inhibit and integrate muscle when repositioning and repatterning. Guidance will be offered for appropriate integrative cueing, technique instruction and modification, reference center identification, and progression/regression based on neuro-muscular demand of the techniques. This workshop will allow the attendee to engage in intensive discussion and application of several non-manual techniques, including a limited number of participant-selected techniques. The first 15 attendees to register will have the opportunity to submit a technique to be reviewed and discussed in detail, including when, where and why it should be considered.

*Prior attendance of Myokinematic Restoration, Postural Respiration, and Pelvis Restoration is required.
