Textul de pe ultima copertă
PNF (Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation) is a concept to therapeutic exercise which therapists all over the world have found effective for treating patients with a wide range of diagnoses. The approach presented in this richly illustrated guide is based on the concepts set out by Dr. Herman Kabat and taught by Margaret Knott. The fully revised fourth edition demonstrates how the principles of the International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health (ICF) and aspects of motor learning and motor control (from »hands-on« to »hands-off« management) are applied in modern PNF evaluation and treatment.
A new fresh fully-coloured design and layout highlights the clearly structured way in which philosophy, basic procedures and treatment patterns of PNF are based.
