    If the left hemipelvis were oriented forward in the transverse plane with respect to the right.What will happen?
    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Postural Restoration

    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]

    Everybody should watch this.

    I think it was perfectly awful.

    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.

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

    Hoping it's the former.

    Thanks

    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

    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.

    Just read the article and it made some sense to me on a logical level with regards to what I see with patients and even with my own movements. I attended a PRI course several years ago and my take is that it seemed to focus on reprogramming the virtual body/brain mapping by engaging respiration and using unusual positions/motor tasks to reduce movement asymmetries/motor weakness due to what I assume are programming issues. The course was pretty much mechanical in its basis, which is too bad since like all other interventions, the nervous system was only a secondary thought. I only mentioned this as I was not sure how the article related to this thread and I by no means feel able to speak for the PRI people.
