These courses are offered as part of a partnership with PRI Vision
Co-taught by Ron Hruska and Dr. Heidi Wise, this course will utilize PRI concepts of asymmetry and visuospatial integration to change biomechanics of postural stability. The speakers have dedicated their careers to addressing postural and visual imbalance. The course attendee will learn how to utilize scientific principles from the fields of physical and optometric rehabilitative medicine in a unique approach for assessment and management of dysfunction related to poor sensory processing of spatial and ground references. The course attendee will be able to integrate this approach with their present treatment or training protocol.
This one day course will offer the participant the ability to recognize visuospatial influences on the baseball player’s ability to throw and hit a baseball. Intervention programs will include integration of specific visual integration guidelines to improve interfering patterned strategies used during throwing and batting, building on PRI Integration for Baseball recommendations. Correlations between player performance and visual-sensory processing will be outlined through case management examples. It is the presenter’s desire to foster a more meaningful and enriching experience between coaches, athletic trainers and baseball players, as individual throwing and batting visual influences are assessed.
