Postural Restoration (PRI) is a therapeutic approach, addressing natural imbalances that occur in the human body. While we all appear “even” or symmetrical (two arms, two legs, two eyes, etc.), the inside of our body is not even, due to organ size, placement and function, along with nervous system development and muscular use. Dominant movement patterns often evolve, including asymmetrical movement patterns exacerbated by individual habits or injury, creating compensatory movement.
If you observe your own behavior, or that of those around you, you will notice unbalanced behavior. When driving a vehicle, your right leg is firmly positioned. What is your left leg doing? Do you favor one arm over the other on the steering wheel? When standing, are you more likely to put your weight on your right leg? Sitting at the computer, do you use a mouse on one side? All of these kinds of behaviors can produce stronger movement on one side. Stronger movement can result in unbalanced positioning, which can then lead to impaired movement and function, with resultant pain and dysfunction.
Our goal at Krull Clinic, PC, is to help you overcome unbalanced movement and restore muscle and joint balance, position, and coordination. Since the body is an integrated system (remember, the knee bone’s connected to the thigh bone), it is vital to correct the total body muscular functioning. We will teach you how to maintain this return to balance in your daily activities for a lifetime of proper rest, optimal breathing, and freedom from pain and dysfunction.
