  1. What is proprioceptive?
    • - having to do with any of the sensory receptors that give information on movement and position of the body
    • - golgi tendon
    • - joint
    • - mm
    • - senses- vision, touch, hear, smell 
  2. Neuromuscular
    involves that nerves
  3. What is the facilitaiton component of PNF? 
    - you assisting making the movement easier
  4. What is the aim of PNF?
    - promote functional movement through facilitation, inhibition, strengthening and relaxation of mm groups
  5. What is the philosophy of PNF?
    • - positive approach- set up for success, achievable tasks
    • - highest functional level: functional approach
    • - mobilise potential by intensive training: active participation, motor learning, self training
    • - consider the total human being work in envt
    • - use of motor control and motor learning principles: variability of ractivce/ repetition
    • - no pain thru movement
  6. What are the characteristics of PNF?
    • - facilitation of spiral and diagonal movement patterns
    • - movements performed may be passive, active- assisted, or active depending on pt
    • - isotonic and isometric movements can be used
    • - sensroy stimulu is used: stretch, traction and approximation (push jts together), maunal contacts, and appropriate verbal commands
    • - resistance- overflow/ irridation from strong to weak mm
    • - developmental sequence important- cephalocaudal and proximodistal
    • - goal directed activites used to hasten learning of functional patterns
  7. What are the essential components of manual contacts of PNF?

  8. What are the essential components of PNF?

    • - defined as greatest amount of resistance that can be applied to isotonic contraction and still allow full range of movement to occur if working on mobility
    • - greatest amount of resistance for isometric hod to still allow hold to be sustained which is working on stability
    • - maximal resistancec can be dangerous
    • - watch for abnormal patterns UMNL 
  11. What is irradiation?
