PNF

Mila Snapp, MSPT and graduate of PNF Residency Program of Valejo, California demonstrates some of the beginning and ending positions and hand placements for various PNF patterns.


Be sure to note the therapist's grip on the patient.  A circumferential grip is not used when performing PNF Patterns.  Remember to use the "Lumbrical Grip" keeping fingers straight rather than bent and using more proximal portions to grip not the finger tips.


We want to thank Mila for spending her time to teach us a little bit about PNF.
