neuro19 PNF VS NDT

neuro PNF vs NDT

NDT Inhibition of abnormal patterns with facilitation of normal patterns
NDT Alteration of abnormal tone and influencing isolated active movement
NDT Avoid utilization of abnormal reflexes
NDT Manual contact and handling through key points of control for facilitation and inhibition
NDT Achieve a balance between muscle groups
NDT Use of developmental sequence
NDT Use of dynamic reflex inhibiting patterns
NDT Use of functional activities with varying levels of difficulty
NDT Treatment should be active and dynamic
NDT Avoid associated reactions
NDT Emphasize the component of rotation during treatment activities
NDT Orientation to midline control by moving in and out of midline with dynamic activity
NDT Compensation techniques are avoided and perceived as unnecessary
Brunnstrom Evaluation of strength focuses on patterns of movement rather than straight plane motion at a joint
Brunnstrom Sensory examination is required to assist with treating motor deficits
Brunnstrom Initially limb synergies are encouraged as a necessary milestone for recovery
Brunnstrom Encourage overflow to recruit active movement of the weak side
Brunnstrom Use of repetition of task and positive reinforcement
Brunnstrom A patient will follow the stages of recovery, but may experience a plateau at any point so that full recovery is not achieved
Brunnstrom Movement combinations that deviate from the basic limb synergies should be introduced in stage 4 of recovery
PNF Techniques must have accurate timing, specific commands, and correct hand placement
PNF Verbal commands must be short and concise
PNF Repetition is important in motor learning
PNF Resistance given during the movement pattern is greater if the objective is stability, less if the objective is mobility
PNF Techniques utilize isometric and isotonic muscle contractions
PNF Treatment objectives will dictate the use of techniques through either full movement or at points within the range
PNF Developmental sequence is used in conjunction with PNF techniques in order to increase the balance between agonists and antagonists
PNF techniques are implemented to progress a patient through the stages of motor control
PNF Functional patterns of movement are used to increase control
PNF Techniques should be utilized that increase strength or improve relaxation by enhancing irradiation from the stronger to the weaker muscles

Use these flashcards to help memorize information. Look at the large card and try to recall what is on the other side. Then click the card to flip it. If you knew the answer, click the green Know box. Otherwise, click the red Don't know box.

When you've placed seven or more cards in the Don't know box, click "retry" to try those cards again.

If you've accidentally put the card in the wrong box, just click on the card to take it out of the box.

You can also use your keyboard to move the cards as follows:

If you are logged in to your account, this website will remember which cards you know and don't know so that they are in the same box the next time you log in.

When you need a break, try one of the other activities listed below the flashcards like Matching, Snowman, or Hungry Bug. Although it may feel like you're playing a game, your brain is still making more connections with the information to help you out.
