Neuromuscular Reeducation

Neuromuscular reeducation

Neuromuscular reeducation is a therapeutic technique that is used to improve:

Treatment may include balance exercises such as one-legged standing and the progressive use of wobble discs, bosu dome, and theraballs.

Another form of treatment is Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation (PNF) - an assisted stretching technique alternating between contracting and relaxing the muscles being stretched.

The individual receiving treatment is encouraged to feel the correct position of joints and to perceive the direction of movement of the body extremities.

The goal of neuromuscular reeducation is to restore the natural mind-body connection by coordinating mental perception to physical action.

Through injury, repetitive use, poor posture and biomechanics, we often alter the movement patterns in our bodies with inefficient, energy consuming substitutions. Through neuromuscular reeducation exercises, we restore the natural, energy efficient movement patterns, promoting optimal joint biomechanics, improving physical function, and decreasing pain.
