Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation Exercise Program

Division Exercise Program Time(min)
Warming up Exercise - ROM exercise of the lower extremities by the passive and the active assistance 5
- The muscle stretching of the upper and lower extremities by the therapist’s manual contact

Bilateral Asymmetric Flexion Pattern & Bilateral Asymmetric Extension Pattern - Hip flexion-abduction-internal rotation Knee flexion, Ankle dorsiflexion-eversion 20
- Rhythmic initiation exercise by the passive and active assist and resistive and independent of therapist’s manual contact
- Combination of isotonic exercise to improve functional training for active control of motion, coordination, strength, and range of active movement

- Hip extension-adduction-external rotation Knee extension, Ankle plantarflexion-inversion
- Dynamic reversal exercise is to perform active-resistance centripetal action from one direction to the other without loosening or stopping.
- Stabilizing reversal, the patient is judged to be sufficiently resistant to the therapist's resistance, move one hand and begin to resist in the opposite direction.
