Secondary Courses

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

Course Description

This advanced course has been revised this year to enhance the understanding of the contributing underlying impingement (compression) and instability (malalignment) considerations associated with typical impingement or instability syndromes. Participants will be able to relate and integrate calcaneal (ground) impingement with femoral instability, pelvis impingement and scapula instability or thoracic malalignment. Impingement and instability integration, for ground control and overhead activity, will be introduced using PRI reference centers and frontal plane oscillation. Scapula function will be presented to reduce femoral/tibia instability, and associated thoracic, calcaneal/talus, and pelvis impingement. 

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

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. Airway alignment, hyoid location, vocal cord function, diaphragmatic demand and arthrokinematic correlations will be discussed, as they relate to the left sidebending and right torsion physiologic cranial positions. 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. *Dentists may attend without prior attendance of Postural Respiration.

Course Description

This four-day advanced lecture and demonstration course is structured so that clinicians will gain an appreciation for the relationship between pathomechanics 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 respiratory-based techniques will be presented with focus on total body integration of muscle, rather than on individual muscular 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.

 

Course Description

This advanced lecture and demonstration course is designed to assist physical therapists, occupational therapists, speech and language pathologists and members of the pediatric interdisciplinary team, in obtaining optimal outcomes for humans that are developing and growing dysfunctional patterns of movement-based, cognitive, communicative, proprioceptive and kinesthetic behavior. A comprehensive overview of assessment and treatment of conventional growth and developmental sensory motor sequences and associated sensory integration principles will help the attendee understand the importance of considering how to integrate ten  postural restoration developmental sensory motor sequences, when and wherever possible, with the seven identified postural restoration developmental processes. Overview of how to apply the developmental processes to age-appropriate sensory motor sequencing will be strengthened through table formats and case presentations. Pediatric specific PRI non-manual techniques for sensory integration processing of the right AIC and left BC will help optimize compliance and interest in humans of all ages that are experiencing developmental and growth, present and past, neuro-integrative challenges. 

*Prior attendance of Postural Respiration is required.
