From the early 90-s I looked how to have more function in using PNF patterns. Then I tried to put patterns in a unit together like in sports and gait and emphasised the trunk. In the late 90s I worked a lot with scapula and pelvis patterns by doing three dimensional trunk Patterns and the head was well integrated.
With it I could initiate reciprocal Patterns of the whole body which was the start of Sprinter and Skater coordination’s.
Teaching PNF with Sprinter Skater coordinations were recognised like more effective in Germany and in South Korea from 2003.
Thank you to Tae-Yoon Kim PT, PhD. and Moon-Kyu Lee. PT, PhD. a lot of scientific background have been done till now.
PNF is now only a base in my treatment. I use Patterns and Techniques in coordinated structures and call it Coordinative Locomotor training - CLT
