PNF

Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation (PNF) is a method of stretching muscles to maximize their flexibility utilizing a series of contractions and relaxations with manually passive stretching applied during the relaxation phase. The ultimate goal of PNF is to quickly enhance both active and passive range of motions, as well as optimize motor performance and rehabilitation.
