This form of rehabilitation encompasses a variety of techniques focused on retraining the muscle spindles which are the individual components of a muscle.
This may include:
- myofascial release techniques: a form of stretching technique that requires active motion on behalf of the patient
- Proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation: a form of stretching that combines both passive motion, in conjunction with isometric muscle contraction on behalf of the patient
- Percussor: a vibration tool that helps to reduce muscular tension, relax hypertonic muscles, and increase blood flow to the region by activating certain nerve endings in the muscle that respond to vibratory stimulation
