  • Strongly suggest watching this video if you haven't seen it and still have questions about PRI. Barrett really does an excellent job here. His understanding and explanation are in perfect agreement with the Postural Restoration Institute philosophy. This lecture could have come straight out of their Myokinematic Restoration course.

      I pay attention to the resting posture of the hips and the autonomic state.
      Barrett,

      May I ask what tests you're using to determine autonomic state?

      Anything you've found to be reliable would be of great help.

      Thanks

      • Perhaps you didn't see this or are simply choosing not to respond.

        Hoping it's the former.

        Thanks

        • It was the former.

          I ask about cold hands and feet and look for muscle rigidity. I shake the arms from the elbows after treatment, as a swimmer on the blocks would. I say, "Increased sympathetic support happens when someone holds a gun to your head." Mention the TV show Charlie's Angels and older patients usually know what you're talking about. Being kidnapped helps.

          These aren't tests per say. Just ways of introducing the subject to the patient.

          Thanks for asking.

            • Everybody should watch this.

              I think it was perfectly awful.

                After about seven minutes, I can think of an "s"-word to describe that presentation- and it has nothing to do with the spine. [emoji56]

                • Cripes.

                  At about the 33 minute mark you can witness a classic 'slight of hand". He checks the "hamstring length" but appears to do it differently side to side (not near the pressure down on the knee on the left compared to the same test on the right...watch it)

                  Such nonsense it's laughable

                  From the classic Shawshank redemption "I mean really...how often do you look at a man's shoes"

                  No one in that audience probably noticed the hamstring slight of hand.

                  You have to pay attention.

                  • If this was meant to promote "postural restoration" it has backfired spectacularly.

                    Of course, the audience here isn't what Hruska is used to. After all, he decided in this thread to ignore us.

                        • The title with "toolbox" was a bad start for me_ i figured it would get worse and it did.

                          The comments under the video were depressing as well. Did not finish watching it.

                            wish I never wasted all that time and money on education
                            could have just taken this and fixed the 3 patterns

                              I don't know.
                              I do not know how to test for that in any reliable fashion - although I used to think I could....
                              There is no way to test pelvic motion or asymmetries as important in any painful condition - in any reliable fashion. Anyone who thinks so, is suffering from a strong perceptual confirmation bias.
                              I know.
                              I am still recovering from that myself.
