Forward Locomotor Movement

An Introspective Approach to the Treatment of Functional Cortical Predominance

Live Course

Lincoln, NE (Live Stream)

"Forward locomotor movmeent requires integration of hemispatial, hemi-chest, lower extremity, and upper extremity phases of activity. This course will uncover the novel corollaries of perception and research reasoning of each, at all phases of locomotor movement introspective effort."

Course Information

This course offers the attendee an opportunity to re-examine ‘gait’, ‘ambulate’, ‘walking’, ‘bipedalism’, and ‘locomotion’ by addressing the cortical coordination of the human limbs that are responsible for individual forward locomotor movement patterns. Neurological and physiological dominance is designed around introspective habituation and compensation, that reflects physical predominant hemispheric loading and cortical hemi-spatial flow. A comprehensive, and up to date, review of literature and research on cortical dominance and associated pre-existing dominance factors that define interlimb and intralimb interaction during forward movement of the body, is offered. Arm and leg control, and overall associated motor function of human swing, support and propulsion will be addressed through asymmetrical gravitational balance effort and anti-gravitational eccentric considerations. Both, arm and leg control, and function in human locomotion, will be dissected and described, as a novel introduction to integrated upper and lower extremity movement, and hemi-spatial awareness and hemi-chest activity will be outlined, for all phases of forward locomotor movement. Clinical recommendations for individual introspection of forward locomotor movement will be provided throughout the course. Eccentric control of functional cortical predominant patterned limitations on locomotor movement, along with multisystem guidelines for reweighting balance through limb use, will be provided through the use of PRI non-manual technique application.

Prior attendance of Myokinematic Restoration, Pelvis Restoration, Postural Respiration and Impingement & Instability is required.

Live Stream courses will take place from 8am-5pm CT each day, and certificates of completion/CE credit will be awarded the following week after completion of the course evaluation survey and short post-test. For more information on whether your state/organization is approved for CE approval, please click on the "Accreditation" tab below. Live Stream courses will be engaging, interactive and include demonstration of objective testing and/or non-manual techniques, in addition to course attendees being able to ask questions throughout the course. All that’s needed on your end is reliable internet access, a webcam, microphone and speaker (or a smart phone can be used if you do not have a computer or laptop with this capability). The course manual will be shipped directly to you 1-2 weeks before the course. *International registrants will receive access to a digital version of the course manual. In addition, participants will receive access to the recording of the live stream course for 10 days to review the material, and re-watch any material that may have been missed due to connection issues. Extensions beyond this 10 day review are not available. Please note: Once course manuals have been shipped (or emailed to international attendees), there will be no refunds for cancellations.

Course Registration

Registration is limited to ensure a low faculty to student ratio. Please register early. Courses will be canceled or rescheduled if fewer than 15 participants have registered by the early registration deadline of four weeks prior to the scheduled course date.

Special Needs Requests

If you have a disability and require accommodation in order to fully participate in this course, please contact us at least two weeks prior to the course date so that arrangements can be made.

Course Completion

The course must be attended in full, and a course evaluation summary completed in order to receive a certificate of completion for 30 CE hours. If you arrive late, or leave early, your certificate of completion will be adjusted for the number of CE hours you were in attendance.

Cancellation and Refund Policy

Tuition is refundable less $50 if cancelled 14 days before the course date. Tuition is not refundable for registrations or cancellations within 14 days of the course. However, you may have someone attend in your place or attend on another date. If you choose to attend on another date, a $50 fee applies to transfer your registration.  If you are a no show and we have no communication with you before the course you will forfeit your course tuition. PRI reserves the right to cancel a course and will refund the tuition fee only. *Please note: For Live Stream Courses, once course manuals have been shipped (or emailed to international attendees), there will be no refunds for cancellations.
