neuro27 syngeries

neuro27 synergies

Synergy Patterns When the central nervous system is damaged as with a CVA, the higher centers of the brain are also damaged.
The higher centers are responsible for both complex motor patterns and the inhibition of massive gross motor patterns.
Synergy patterns result when the higher centers of the brain lose control and the uncontrolled or partially controlled stereotyped patterns of the middle and lower centers emerge.
Flexor Synergy Scapula: Elevation and retraction
Flexor Synergy Shoulder: Abduction and lateral rotation
Flexor Synergy Elbow: Flexion
Flexor Synergy Forearm: Supination
Flexor Synergy Wrist: Flexion
Flexor Synergy Fingers: Flexion with adduction
Flexor Synergy Thumb: Flexion and adduction
Extensor Synergy Scapula: Depression and protraction
Extensor Synergy Shoulder: Medial rotation and adduction
Extensor Synergy Elbow: Extension
Extensor Synergy Forearm: Pronation
Extensor Synergy Wrist: Extension
Extensor Synergy Fingers: Flexion with adduction
Extensor Synergy Thumb: Adduction and flexion
• The flexor synergy is seen when the patient attempts to lift up their arm or reach for an object.
Flexor Synergy Hip: Abduction and lateral rotation
Flexor Synergy Knee: Flexion
Flexor Synergy Ankle: Dorsiflexion with supination
Flexor Synergy Toes: Extension
Extensor Synergy Hip: Extension, medial rotation, and adduction
Extensor Synergy Knee: Extension
Extensor Synergy Ankle: Plantar flexion with inversion
Extensor Synergy Toes: Flexion and adduction
• The flexor synergy is characterized by great toe extension and flexion of the remaining toes secondary to spasticity.
