proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation. techniques used to improve motor skills through positive motor transfer, using the principles of facilitation/inhibition; irradiation/reinforcement; reciprocal innervation.
An approach to therapeutic exercise based on the principles of functional human anatomy and neurophysiology.
Proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation. These techniques improve motor skill through positive motor transfer, using the principles of facilitation/inhibition; irradiation/reinforcement; reciprocal innervation (i.e. maximal contraction of agonist muscle results in maximal relaxation of the antagonist); and successive induction (i.e. flexion augments extension and extension augments flexion).
proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation-. A technique for increasing flexibility; the muscle is stretched, isometrically contracted, then stretched farther.
Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation. A method of promoting a response of neuromuscular mechanisms through the stimulation of proprioceptors in an attempt to facilitate increased range of motion, increased strength and movement pattern control.
