Do you use PNF to improve mobility regularly? It’s a great, non-threatening way to not only improve mobility, but to re-educate newly gained mobility from any manual technique, corrective exercise, or repeated loading strategy.
Below is a video shot at the Inaugural Garage Series, Modern Manual Therapy – The Eclectic Approach to UQ and LQ Assessment and Treatment, in Mt. Airy, MD. In it, you’ll learn
- a modern take on why increased tone of the agonist reduces mobility à in this this hip flexor facilitation reducing active and passive hip flexion
- how to use agonist reversals to reeducate a loss of mobility or to groove the pattern of newly regained mobility
Remember, PNF is not just for neuro or peds patients. PNF is for anyone who needs proprioception, neuromuscular reeducation, and some facilitation. Sound like anyone in your caseload?
