   P.N.F.  Method

This level consists of 4 hours patients demonstration (two participants per one patient).

All participants will be tested. The test will consist of two parts: written and practical test. The PROPRIOCEPTIVE NEUROMUSCULAR FACILITATION – P.N.F is one of the most famous and most important methods used by physiotherapists for rehabilitation of diseases and injuries of both nervous and musculoskeletal system. The application of the diagonal pattern of PNF in order to facilitate muscle contraction, the application of strengthening and relaxation techniques of muscles, the application of mobilization and stabilization techniques of these joints as well as the techniques to improve balance and muscle synergy, bring maximum operating results. In 1946 the method started from KABAT – KAISER Institute and continued with the cooperation of VOSS – KNOTT (1952 – 1963), in ADLER till today. The method was developed and updated and became fully accepted for its result in the treatment of neurological, orthopedics and rheumatological patients. Since then, the method has been widely taught in physiotherapists all over the world.
Objective PNF 3
The emphasis of this advanced course, PNF 3, is on functional problem solving for different common functional limitations.
PNF3 represents the 3rd. week of course instruction and contains a minimum of 37 hours. Participants must work a minimum of 6 months using PNF before progressing to PNF 3. All participants will be tested. The test will consist of two parts: written and practical test plus patient demonstration.  All participants receive a written evaluation from the instructor.
