Logo Inspiration

This distinctive trademark represents some of the most important linkage of regional muscular chains of the human body as well as the Hruska Clinic™'s strong belief in integrating patterned musculature to regain as much symmetry and normal anatomical position as possible, prior to surgery and after surgery, or as a preventative measure.  We also look to maximize this symmetry with the help of or during the treatment of complementary interdisciplinary treatment from dentists, podiatrists, other physical therapists, pulmonologists, chiropractors, optometrists, osteopaths, etc. The strong linkage of integrative interdisciplinary involvement in addition to the intense application of Postural Restoration Institute® (PRI) science and treatment standards, make this clinic's experience and positive outcomes very unique.

 

 

Its all in the details

  1. When looking at the logo, you’ll see a very bold, darker line beginning at the top of the right side. This line reflects the strong pull of the right sternocleidomastoid muscle on the right cranial base and temporal bone, which is most often seen on the human body.

  2. The superior cross-link reflects the cranio-cervical-thoracic muscular chains that can influence or may be influenced by the lower cross-linked muscular chains that reflect the thoracic-pelvic-femoral region. These chains are composed of many aligned and patterned muscles that cross many joints of the asymmetrical human. Thus, they are referred to as poly-articular chains and are necessary for postural stability, respiratory function, neurologic muscle tone and patterning and reflex regulation. They have a direct impact on gait, endurance, vision, speech, swallowing, strength, respiration and balance.

  3. The darker line crosses through the sternum and around the thorax on the left side of the logo. These left abdominal muscles are usually weaker, mal-positioned and provide poor opposition to the diaphragm. Therefore this line is narrower than its counterpart.

  4. Since the adductors and hamstrings of our right leg, the right abdominals, and the right low back musculature usually work harder than the left, because of human characteristic postural asymmetries, the dark, broad, and lowest line of the logo reflects this pattern. The Hruska Clinic™ utilizes Postural Restoration Institute® (PRI) manual and non-manual techniques to balance patterned muscle use and position of the pelvis, thorax and cranium.

  5. All lines on the right side are fuller and wider to represent the dominance of these right sided chained or linked muscles. The right middle looped line is broader, more active as a postural stabilizer and reflects the human characteristic pattern of right sided dominant arm and leg use, as well as center of gravity orientation to the right.
