Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation Therapy

An approach to soft tissue manual therapy in which a practitioner applies quasi-static pressure to soft tissue in order to stimulate skeletal striated muscle. Often these areas of muscle are myofascial trigger points. Practitioners of Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation claim to balance the central nervous system (brain, spinal cord, spinal column and nerves) with the structure and form of the musculoskeletal system. Through applied knowledge of trigger points, neuromuscular therapy addresses postural distortion, poor posture, biomechanical dysfunction, nerve compression syndrome, and ischemia. Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation Therapy increases mobility by lengthening of the connective tissues simultaneously strengthening the soft and connective tissue re-educating the myoskeletal system improving posture, range of motion, circulation, strength, flexibility and mobility.
