We are so pleased to host this Postural Restoration Institute course on how our need to see, will affect how we hold our bodies. It will be at: Advance Physical Therapy on February 10 and 11, from 8am until 5 pm. More on the course below.
Course Description: This course is designed to educate Physical Therapists, PT Assistants, and Occupational Therapists on how a patient with persistent patterning that inhibits PRI neutral maintenance, can be objectively evaluated and managed through tri-planar visual integration and autonomic inhibition. It will allow the course attendee to better understand why a patient with cervical and cranial imbalanced neuromuscular tone and activity is unable to correct patterned asymmetries. Specific treatment approaches will be offered to improve head on body (HOB) activity and visual cortical influence of the anti-gravitational and accessory respiratory muscle of the head and neck. This course will utilize PRI concepts and theory and ocular functional integration to change vestibular postural autonomic and biomechanics of postural stability. The speakers have dedicated their careers to patients with postural and visual imbalance and have utilized scientific principles in their respective fields to treat, in this unique interdisciplinary manner, visual integrative dysfunction. No prior visual training or visual course prerequisites are required. However, information provided by attending Myokinematic Restoration or Postural Respiration would be helpful
