The PNF method does not only focus on the patterns of limbs exercised with resistance, possibly combined with some technique. PNF also has a range of activities that enable mat therapy, learning to walk, exercising facial muscles, and working on functions such as breathing, chewing and swallowing.
PNF concept approach:
P – proprioceptive, stimulating nerve receptors
N – neuromuscular activating neuromuscular structures
F – facilitation, facilitation, help, priming
The concept of the PNF method enables work with neurological as well as orthopedic patients.
