Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation (PNF) is a more advanced form of flexibility training that involves both a stretch and a contraction of the muscle group being targeted. PNF stretches were originally developed as a form of rehabilitation, and to that effect, it is very effective.
The purpose of PNF is to evoke motor responses and improve neuromuscular control and function. Putting a muscle in a stretched position (passive stretch) and holding for a few seconds. Relaxing the stretch, and then stretching again. This is a technique to achieve maximum static flexibility.
PNF stretching has been proven to improve active and passive range of motion. It can be used to supplement daily, static stretching and has been shown to help athletes improve performance and make speedy gains in range of motion. Not only does it increase flexibility, but it can also improve muscular strength.
Appointments with Dr. Jandial are timely, easy and thorough. I know that he will stop at nothing to make sure he has done everything he can to help. For instance, during my last appointment I had something out of place in my back that was not wanting to go back into place. Dr. Jandial tried several different adjustments until one finally worked to get it back into place. I rely on his care to keep my body functioning properly, and would recommend his services to anyone looking for a great and experienced chiropractor.
Dr Jandial is wonderful as is the front office and massage therapist. They listen to you and accommodate your needs. I always come out of the office feeling so much better.
Acute neck flare up was addressed throughly by Dr. jandial who brought much relief and relaxation. I had a lovely nearly pain free weekend because of it
