Introduction

 

In this workshop, the PNF techniques will be presented and applied in an analytical manner, on various muscle groups.

Proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation uses the body’s proprioceptive system to facilitate or inhibit muscle contraction. These techniques are based on Sherrington’s principles of irradiation, reciprocal innervation and inhibition. PNF techniques were developed during the 1940s and 1950s, and are the result of the work of Kabat, Knott and Voss.  Herman Kabat began using PNF techniques on younger individuals with cerebral palsy and other neurological disorders.

Voss defined the PNF as a method of promoting or speeding up the response of the neuromuscular system by stimulating the proprioceptors.    Since the 1980s, PNF techniques have been used in many other areas of physical therapy and sports training besides neuro-rehabilitation. These techniques can be used to decrease tone in the quadriceps, hip flexors, hamstrings, biceps, etc., leading to large gains in range of motion and function, as well as decreasing pain and discomfort.

Many PNF techniques can be included in workout programs, to enhance coordination, movement and stability. PNF is a useful tool that all sports professionals and physical therapists should understand and use depending on their objectives.

Contact hours – 8

Eligibility – Clinical Therapist,

Venue: – Saifee Hospital Mumbai
