Functional Proprioceptive Stimulation induces a sensation of movement in the direction that would have lengthened the stimulated muscle.
Stimulates the nervous system with sensory information identical to those normally going along natural movements → Sensation of virtual movement → Can induce a motor response → Keep alive the sensory-motor interactions.
Active patient participation increases, session after session, following these successive steps
The two modes of treatment – to preserve & enhance sensory-motor functions.
MODE 1 –
Functional Proprioceptive Stimulations (FPS) are applied on the musculo-tendinous junction.
FPS mechanically stimulates the muscle spindles, mimicking the sensory signals – Ia fibers of functional movements.
This neurosensory trick activates related sensory-motor areas allowing patients to feel natural movements. Because sensory & motor systems are interdependent, the CNS then reacts by initiating corresponding movements.
MODE 2 –
These focal stimulations are used for the treatment of pain by the stimulation of skin mechanoreceptors & the gate control effect.
Regulate the muscular activity-
MODE 3 –
Stimulations are applied in the middle of the antagonist’s muscle to the spastic one. They induce an increased activity in the stimulated muscle & a reciprocal inhibition of the antagonist/spastic one. For patients with significant spasticity, mode 3 has to be applied through several sessions before applying mode 1 “mobility”
Recover muscle strength-
MODE 4 –
Targeted actions of mode 4 help the patients to :
. increase their muscle tone
. recover the muscle mass
. strengthen their motor function
. carry out the important proprioceptive work
The optimal effects of those stimulations are reached when patients achieve isometric contractions of stimulated muscles synchronously with stimulations.
