Neuromuscular Energising Therapy NET courses are held at Hollowgate House in Rotherham. There are 4 Training Courses specific to NET
Net Spinal Injury Course aims to:
To enhance existing skills in the concept and application of detailed functional movement analysis with reference to spinal cord injury.
To further develop handling skills in the facilitation and guidance of functional movement and muscle activation in relation to spinal cord injury.
To expand knowledge of the concept and its application with reference to patients with altered tonal state and muscle activity deficit as a result of spinal cord injury..
To continue to use suspensions as an adjunct to the assessment and treatment of neurologically impaired patients with specific reference to spinal cord injury.
At the end of the course the participants will be able to:
Identify and analyse deficits/ deficiencies in postural alignment, dynamic stability and balance reactions and functional movement patterns caused by tonal deficit and weakness in spinal cord injury patients.
Demonstrate enhanced patient handling skills in facilitating an appropriate muscle activation/response and describe the mechanisms involved in regaining and maintaining postural control and balance in patients with spinal cord injury.
Demonstrate advanced handling skills in facilitating movement in lying, side-lying, sitting and standing where appropriate and describe and demonstrate functional selective control between positions.
Describe the mechanics of postural control and co-ordination vs independent selectivity between body segments.
Apply suspensions throughout any upper limb movement pattern in order to stimulate muscle activity and co-contraction so improving stability and co-ordinated control around the shoulder girdle whilst evaluating the individual’s potential for recovery.
NET can be successfully used in the Assessment and Treatment of Neurological conditions including:
Spinal Cord Injury
Gillian Barre Syndrome
Commonly, patients who have experienced NET techniques describe a feeling of “lightness” and “ease of movement” following treatment.
There is no boundary of length of time following diagnosis or onset of condition to achieving muscle activation and the onset of recovery.
Individuals have been truly shocked and amazed at the results that have been achieved using NET techniques despite having been told that no further recovery is likely or that they have “plateaued”.
