Find Lasting Relief with PRI Therapy in Ann Arbor

Have years of chronic pain, imbalance, and tension prevented you from living the active lifestyle you desire? If ineffective treatments and nagging injuries have held you back from your athletic goals, On Track Physiotherapy offers renewed hope with Postural Restoration Institute (PRI) Therapy.

Our fully certified PRI practitioners have helped hundreds of weekend warriors and former college athletes in the Ann Arbor area achieve long-term relief after other therapies failed. By strategically addressing joint and muscle imbalances through hands-on, progressive treatment plans, we empower you to return to the activities you love, free of discomfort.

This innovative methodology could be the solution to end your frustrating battle with persistent pain, whether from sports injuries, sciatica, back/neck issues, or other chronic conditions. Our proven PRI protocols also enhance body control and strength, helping prevent future injuries. If you’re ready to stop “dealing with” pain and transform your quality of life, discover how PRI therapy finally provides the answers and results you’ve waited for.

A Customized Approach to Relieve Lingering Pain

PRI therapy represents an advanced and rapidly growing treatment philosophy that pinpoints how lifelong posture and movement habits contribute to pain and discomfort. By evaluating your precise anatomical and neuromuscular patterns through specialized assessments, your PRI-certified therapist can detect improper pelvic positioning, muscle asymmetry, and nerve inflammation causing your nagging aches, tightness, and mobility issues.

These evaluations allow us to design a personalized treatment program utilizing gentle joint and soft tissue mobilization, biofeedback, and specific corrective exercises tailored to your one-of-a-kind needs. We focus intensely on identifying and addressing the root biomechanical causes perpetuating dysfunction to achieve progressive, lasting relief month after month.

PRI therapy moves beyond temporary fixes by teaching your body to self-correct harmful movement habits that prevent full rehabilitation. Our goal is to resolve the primary postural imbalances wreaking havoc on your body to eliminate painful flare-ups and inflammation.

Who Can PRI Therapy Help?

If you identify with any of the following, PRI therapy may provide the long-awaited solution:

  • Lingering discomfort and tightness from old injuries prevent daily activity
  • Chronic back, hip, knee, shoulder, or neck pain flares up periodically
  • You experience joint “catching”, “locking up”, or uncoordinated movement
  • You feel muscle imbalance, poor core control, and fatigue easily
  • You wish to improve your athletic ability but pain inhibits your progress
  • Pain or weakness frequently causes you to overcompensate in movement

Both men and women living in the Ann Arbor area who struggle with any of the above issues tend to find tremendous relief and restored well-being through PRI therapy at On Track Physiotherapy.

Frequently Asked Questions

We encourage you to discuss any questions or concerns with your PRI therapist, but here are a few common queries regarding PRI therapy:

Does PRI Therapy Actually Work?
Yes! Published studies and our own clinical outcomes validate PRI as an effective method to address dysfunctional movement patterns. PRI therapy has an excellent track record of helping athletes and everyday people resolve chronic issues when other treatments have failed.

What is PRI Therapy Exactly?
It is a systems-based assessment and intervention model based on detecting and correcting muscle pattern asymmetries/imbalances related to common postural adaptations. These imbalances are addressed through manual therapy, neuromuscular re-education exercises, and patient education.

What Does “AIC” Stand for in PRI Therapy?
AIC means “alternating reciprocal inhibition of contract”. It refers to important patterns of muscle activation and inhibition key to coordinated, efficient movement. Your PRI provider will assess for proper AIC patterns and integrate corrective strategies if needed.

What is a Certified PRI Therapist or “PRI Practitioner”?
Our PRI-certified clinicians have completed over 200 hours of coursework solely focused on the PRI methodology to comprehensively evaluate and treat muscle pattern imbalances. This intensive education ensures they have mastered both assessment procedures and corresponding treatment interventions.

A friend recommended I see Greg for knee pain. I saw significant improvements after a few sessions. Greg was very knowledgeable and accommodating. I highly recommend him and will see him again if I have any more injuries that I need help recovering from.
