PNF stretching

Because my last blog was about flexibility and I’ve been studying that particular subject today as part of my course, I wanted to talk about one of the most effective forms of stretching which is PNF (Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation) Stretching.

This is something that generally requires a partner and your physiotherapist may have used this technique on you, however there are ways of doing certain stretches yourself using a wall or yoga strap if you use a little ingenuity, or google and watch some you tube videos. I’m not expert (not yet anyway) so here are a couple articles that explain further.
