#7185 Applying Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation (PNF) for Optimum Motor Performance and Rehab with Stretching & Strengthening Techniques
Format(s): Live Webinar
Discipline(s): Physical Therapy / Occupational Therapy
Contact Hours: 3
Registration Fee: $60
OBJECTIVES: Upon completion of this course, the participant will be able to:
1. Discuss the physiology, kinesiology, and current evidence related to proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation strengthening and stretching techniques
2. Outline PNF manual resistance guidelines for the therapist/patient relationship
3. Identify specific PNF strengthening techniques and methodologies for the upper/lower extremity and spine to optimize treatment protocols.
4. Apply several different PNF strengthening/stretching techniques to the knee and shoulder for neuromuscular control and proprioceptive coordination

This course offers information and demonstration of how to utilize manual facilitation techniques for rehabilitation of orthopedic injuries and ADLs during stroke recovery to enhance proprioceptive and kinesthetic awareness, muscular strength or sports-specific training. Discover how PNF strengthening and stretching techniques are “Superior” to any other technique, heals tissue through natural movement, extends relative ROM beyond perceived limits, addresses poor movement compensation strategies that limit daily activities and leads to cascading joint instability along kinetic chains. (Intermediate Level)
• Facilitate functional movement patterns and ROM after Total joint replacement, ACL reconstruction or rotator cuff repair and other orthopedic or neurological diagnosis
• Improve gait stability, joint mobility and motor recruitment for daily living skills
• Design neuromuscular treatment plans to enhance muscle function and proprioceptive awareness
