What is Postural Restoration®?
The Hruska Clinic™ offers 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. Each individual patient will be provided with a specific program designed to fit his or her specific needs. Our therapists spend at least one hour with each patient to ensure that a thorough evaluation and specific home program are provided in addition to education of both patient and family.
The Postural Restoration® approach is taught nationally to physical therapists and healthcare professionals through the Postural Restoration Institute® (PRI). Practitioners can become certified in the science of Postural Restoration® (Postural Restoration Certified (PRC)) by taking required coursework and undergoing a written and practical certification exam put on yearly by the Institute. All therapist in the Hruska Clinic have earned the designation of Postural Restoration Certified (PRC).
