On December 11, 2012 in Lincoln, NE the Postural Restoration Institute® announced the certification of
Emily Soiney, PT, DPT, RYT, CST, PRC. To be Postural Restoration Certified
(PRC), Emily has completed multiple advanced PRI
courses, demonstrated a thorough understanding of the science through
completion of the PRC application, and successfully participated in both
clinical and analytical testing. Since the certification process began in 2004, 80 therapists have earned the designation of Postural Restoration
Certified (PRC) under the direction of Ron Hruska, MPA, PT.
The Postural Restoration Institute® established this certification process as a way to recognize and identify individuals with advanced training, extraordinary interest and devotion to the science of postural adaptations, asymmetrical patterns and the influence of polyarticular chains of muscles on the human body as defined by the Postural Restoration Institute®.
PRC therapists offer a unique approach to physical medicine called Postural Restoration. This approach addresses underlying biomechanics which can often lead to symptoms of pain and dysfunction. All mechanical influences on the body that restrict movement and contribute to improper joint and muscle position are considered, examined, and assessed. Manual and non-manual techniques are utilized to restore proper alignment of the body while proper respiratory dynamics are considered. Treatment encompasses prevention and lifetime integration for long-term successful outcomes.
