Functional Neuro Muscular Testing (NMFT)

  A Bit Of Background

Our skeleton, muscles and joints have to fully FUNCTION every day. We have to be able to get out of bed in the morning, use the stairs, be able to cycle to work, manage a whole day's work, do fitness, amongst many other things.

All these FUNCTIONS require that muscles, joints and  the nervous system work optimally.

Even from early childhood we are exposed to falls, knocks and bad twists. In most cases no after effects are felt, but in some cases the stresses the joints are exposed to can cause a specific muscle to weaken.

 

AND NOW WE HAVE A PROBLEM 

A weakened muscle will diminish FUNCTION around the affected area that is involved and thereby over exert the surrounding muscles and tendons due to compensation. It further increases the stress on the associated joint.

YOU WILL LEARN...

During the seminars you will learn to use an examination method that involves Neuro-Muscular-Function-Tests (NMFT). 

Functional muscle tests that will determine if a muscle is weak or has normal strength.

By identifying a muscle weakness, LACK OF FUNCTION (STRENGTH), you are able to specifically find the reason for why your patient is compensating and thereby developing aches and pains (DIAGNOSIS). No more guessing why some of your patients keep getting recurrent low back pain, recurrent shoulder neck pains or even suffering from heel spurs.

BY UNDERSTANDING THE UNDERLYING COMPENSATORY MECHANISMS your are able to make  the treatment very accurate and successful.

NMFT:

- allows your patient to see and feel the immediate effect from pre to post testing, which will hugely increase patient compliance. (HUGE WOW FACTOR!). They are able to see that a problem exist, during testing, without you having to tell them.

- you will be able to set a goal for the treatment program that the patient can identify with. 

- you will be able to identify risk factors and potentially prevent injuries, by restoring proper neuro-muscular function.

NMFT
gives you a much better understanding, why your patients suffer from:

  • Recurrent/chronic Headaches

  • Stubborn neck shoulder pains

  • Whiplash injuries not getting better

  • Impinchment Syndrome

  • Tennis or Golfer's elbow

  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

  • Recurrent Low Back Pain

  • Runner's knee

  • Chin splints

  • Ankle pains

  • Heel Spurs

  • E.t.c.

Neuro Muskulœre Funktions Test (NMFT) bruger FUNCTIONAL MUSCLE TESTING for at undersøge, at det neurologiske sammenspil mellem  afferent input fra mekanoreceptorene omkring et specifik led og den testede muskel styrke, er optimal.

Når et led i kroppen bliver udsat for en overbelastning, kan dette forårsage en nedsat muskel kraft. Dette sker ved en aktivering af en mekanreceptor som efterfølgende reducere muskel styrken.

Ved at forstå de underliggende kompenserende mekanismer, er du i stand til at gøre behandlingen meget præcis og succesfuld. Behandlingen gør det muligt for din patient at se og føle den umiddelbare effekt fra prœ til post-test, hvilket vil øge patientens overholdelse af behandlings forløbet. De er I stand til at se, at der er et problem under testen, uden at du behøver at fortælle dem det.

Du vil vœre i stand til at sœtte et mål for behandlingsprogrammet, som patienten kan identificere sig med og identificere risikofaktorer og potentielt forebygge skader ved at genoprette korrect neuro-muskulœr FUNKTION.

Ved at kunne forstå MUSCLE WEAKNESS, er det vigtigt at undersøge og forstå musklens evne til at modstå en ekstern påført belastning. Vi fokuserer specielt på kvaliteten og kraften i muskel kontraktionen.

En svœkket muskel vil minimere FUNKTIONEN omkring det påvirkede område, som er involveret, og dermed yderliger overanstrenge de omkringliggende muskler, sener og led på grund kompensation. 

Håndtering og behandling af mere komplekse problemer effektivt, såsom kroniske piskesmœldsrelaterede skader, kronisk svimmelhed og hovedpine. Hvorfor symptomer og problemer fortsœtter med at gentage sig, selv efter års behandling og rehabilitering.

Du vil få mulighed for at skanne en hel patient i mindre en 2 minutter. Det betyder at alle dine patienter kan få gavn af optimal neuro-muskulœr FUNKTION.

NMFT er et vidunderligt redskab til at undersøge mange menesker på en kort tidsrum i eksempelvis en sport, fodbold club eller ligende.
