What is motor control training?

Motor control training includes a variety of exercises that are designed to help improve the functionality, range-of-motion, and coordination of the muscles around the spine. The physical therapists at our Victoria location will walk you through several exercises, and as you progress and your pain improves, will continue to provide you with more complex exercises to make everything from minor to more complex tasks and activities easier and pain-free.

The types of motor control exercises we offer focus on improving all forms of movement including reflexive, adaptive, and voluntary movements. Our physical therapists will factor in posture, biomechanics, neurophysiology, and motor re-learning to create customized solutions to help make tackling your everyday routine possible.

What is proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation (PNF)?

PNF stretching is another effective technique that can stretch out just about any muscles of the body. This helps send signals to the brain to help the muscles fully relax. There are three main types of PNF techniques:

  • Contract-relax
  • Hold-relax-contract
  • Hold-relax

PNF stretching can help improve flexibility and range of motion particularly in the hip flexors, hamstrings, back, and glutes. These therapeutic exercises can provide amazing results when it comes to improved mobility. It’s even been effective for those dealing with mobility issues as a result of certain neuromuscular health problems such as multiple sclerosis.
