Herman Kabat MUDr. Herman Kabat belonged to important american neurophysiologists. The method proved to be relatively fast and effective in a much wider spectrum of movement diagnosis. DESCRIPTION: Therapist is teaching the patient exercises with the limbs in diagonal position, which leads to activation of the muscles in specific way to activate the correct movement pattern, increased movement range and strengthening the muscle power. Along with that, there is also a reverse in the exercise: stretching-relaxation, action-relaxation, … The therapist applies a manual contact and pressures in the direction or against the direction of the performed movement, which affects the tension in the muscles which have to be involved in the movement pattern. In acute phases of painful conditions, illnesses.

The works of Sister Elizabeth Kenney, an Australian nurse who treated polio patients with specific stretching and strengthening activities, was an early influence on Kabat. So it is important to recognize that PNF is not just a treatment approach, rather, it is a tool that allows for simultaneous assessment and treatment of neuromuscular dysfunction. Kabat began his search for a Physical Therapist to work alongside him, treating patients using his new concepts.
Kabat in That same year she started a post-graduate training program that was attended by therapists from all over the world. This very same post-graduate t raining program still exists today, 52 years later, with a dedicated clinical staff training graduate physical therapists in our 3 and 6-month residency programs. The Programs combine didactic and clinical training that honor the heritage of Dr.
Kabat and Maggie Knott. Together, the three of them continued to develop and refine the foundational concepts of what we know today as PNF.
From its beginnings, PNF has successfully integrated many of the concepts of contemporary neurorehab interventions. PNF also includes mot or learning and functional retention of newly learned activities with the repetition of a specific demand; the use of the developmental progression of motor behavior that enables patients to create and re-create strategies of efficient functional movement; and the biomechanical and behavioral analysis of motor control.
All activities within PNF intervention are directed towards a functional goal and are relative to the environment in which the goal is to be achieved. Please click here.
