P.N.F.  Method

 Level 3 consists of 4 hours patients demonstration (two participants per one patient).

All participants will be tested.

The test will consist of 2 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 2 parts: written and practical test plus patient demonstration.

EPIMORFOSIS organizes specialization seminars for rehabilitation professionals. I’ve watched a lot. I strongly recommend you trust EPIMORFOSIS for your specialization and lifelong information.

- Alexandros Karagiannidis -

Training, a steady value for more than twenty years now, leads physiotherapy and keeps it at a very high level, well done to George Karambalis and his associates, we owe a lot to all of you.

- Philip Tzimoulis -

The best physiotherapists training institution. It enables the development of the necessary knowledge for clinical reasoning. High-quality training without having to travel abroad.

- Tsoukalas Kotsiris Georgios -

My first steps in professional specialization started with EPIMORFOSIS and continue. It has been with us all these years, covering the need for modern and documented knowledge, in collaboration with internationally acclaimed educational institutions.

- Kostas Poulis -

I have known George Karampalis and EPIMORFOSIS for many years. I’ve had the opportunity to join several clinical courses and I can argue that, at the level of organisation and selection of trainers, they have a high level of recognised prestige.

- Georgia Petta -

EPIMORFOSIS justifies its name by providing high quality courses. George Karampalis operates more like a constant “trainee” and less like an entrepreneur, and this is an additional positive fact in the effort that is put by the workers and teachers of EPIMORFOSIS.
