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
