pri announces the credentialing of courtney stearn, prc





December 13, 2022 – Lincoln, NE – Today, the Postural Restoration

Institute® announces the completion of the Postural Restoration Certified™ (PRC) credentialing program Courtney Stearn, PRC. To be Postural Restoration Certified™ (PRC), Courtney 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. To date, 243 professionals have earned the designation of Postural Restoration Certified™ (PRC)

under the direction of Ron Hruska, MPA, PT.


The Postural Restoration Institute® established this credentialing process in 2004 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®. Postural Restoration Certified™ (PRC) is

available to physical therapists, physical therapist assistants, occupational therapists and chiropractors

who have completed the requirements.


PRC professionals 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.

The Postural Restoration Institute® (PRI) was founded in Lincoln, Nebraska and the science is taught to

physical therapists, occupational therapists, chiropractors and other allied health and fitness

professionals across the country. For more information about the Postural Restoration Institute® and

the PRC credential, please visit www.posturalrestoration.com and browse through PRI’s dynamic,

informative website.
