  • Upper limb patterns
  • Lower limb patterns

3. Acquire the ability to apply the techniques of PNF to individuals requiring movement re-education.  Including

  • Repeated stretches
  • Slow reversals
  • Rhythmical stabilisations

4. Develop an understanding of how to incorporate PNF with other treatment approaches.

5. Have an ability to utilise PNF techniques in functional activities such as bed mobility, gait, sporting actions…. by considering case study examples
