Neuromuscular Stabilization Training's main focus is to increase communication between the nervous system and the muscular system.
An impaired stabilization system will not respond to the demands imposed during functional activities.
Stabilization is a component of all movements. When athletes move there is a complex sensory motor process that occurs to maintain balance by keeping their center of gravity over their base of support.
The CNS will allow optimum recruitment of prime movers only to the
degree that the body maintains dynamic joint stabilization and postural equilibrium. This complex control process must be optimized to meet the constant demands of changing postures and joint angles during athletic movement. This allows for optimum balance and successful performance of complex motor skills.
NST restores dynamic stabilization mechanisms, improves muscular efficiency, and stimulates joint and muscle receptors to encourage maximal sensory input to the CNS.
Acting collectively, this increases performance and decreases the potential for injury.
If limitations in mobility exist, quality stability is not possible. You must gain mobility then train stability.
NST creates the neurological clarity needed for uninhibited brain/body communication so you can recruit the right muscles at the right time with the right amount of force to produce the desired movement.
CONTROLLED INSTABILITY IS THE HALLMARK OF NEUROMUSCULAR STABILIZATION TRAINING
