PNF Stretching

Proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation (PNF) stretching is an advanced form of stretching that pushes a muscle to its limit. Doing this triggers a protective reflex that calms the muscle to prevent injury. PNF involves a stretch and a contraction of the muscle group being targeted, and the result is a deeper stretch.

PNF relies on reflexes to produce stretches that increase flexibility, allowing you to move freely and comfortably in your daily life. Flexibility can also help prevent injury during exercise.


What Does It Involve

PNF stretching utilizes the myotatic reflex of your muscles to contract when reaching their limit. This is likened to a rubber band reaching its limit of flex. This process slowly increases muscle flexibility and increases the range of movement. PNF is mainly used for rehabilitation in strength, pain relief, and function, helping you get back on the road to recovery.
