PRI Vision is not a cure-all. That said, it can help patients who display certain symptoms. These symptoms often manifest in the following ways:
- Unexplained, non-traumatic injuries or pain.
- Relentless head, neck, or shoulder tension.
- Back tightness or stiffness during non-athletic activity or while resting.
The patients who tend to benefit the most from PRI Vision are usually patients who:
- Have difficulty moving a shoulder/arm without feeling the neck (tension or pull/pain) or who objectively can’t isolate shoulder/arm movement from the neck muscles.
- Can’t alternate their activity (left-right-left-right) without back tension following attempted treatment of that back tension (PT, Chiropractic, Massage, Acupuncture, ect.)
For PRI-trained Physical Therapists and professionals there are three main indicators that PRI Vision may be the appropriate next step for one of their patients. These three indicators are generally as follows:
- The inability to obtain or maintain PRI-defined neutrality.
- The failure to achieve expected improvement. If you find that the more you try to have the patient do/the longer you see them, the worse the patient gets in either subjective symptoms or objective pattern evaluation.
- The inability of the patient to find grounded references, as taught in PRI, after a neutral position has been achieved.
If you’re identifying these particular issues in one or more of your patients contact the PRI Vision Center. If you’d like to learn more about PRI Vision or how to integrate it into your practice go to privisioncenter.com
