PROPRIOCEPTIVE NEUROMUSCULAR FACILITATION (PNF)
The concept of Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation is one of the three most important and recognised therapy concepts for neurological diseases. The most important goal of PNF therapy is the biggest possible independence of the patient and the associated participation in life.
A targeted and individual therapy design, which is based on the needs, limitations and wishes of our patients, as well as the specific use of the body's own resources are two important principles in the PNF concept.
What can be treated with PNF?
- All neurological diseases (hemiparesis after a stroke, craniocerebral trauma)
- after accidents, partial spinal cord injuries
- Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, etc.
- Complex orthopaedic problems, e.g. after joint implantations
- after surgery on the spine
- Gait problems, gait instability, fall prevention
- Polytrauma after accidents
