Reactive Neuromuscular Training
Reactive Neuromuscular Training (RNT), as the name suggests, refers to a type of training that involves the use of both our musculoskeletal and nervous systems. At SPI, we like to use RNT as part of our rehabilitation programmes when treating a variety of conditions, including ankle, knee, hip, back, and shoulder issues.
RNT. A Fancy Name for a Great Rehab Tool
By adding in resistance to a joint using bands or pulleys, some of the smaller stabilising muscles are forced to ‘switch on’ and engage in order to maintain joint stability throughout the exercise.
Training and rehabbing with the use of RNT can help to clean up a lot of dysfunctional movement patterns and therefore can help prevent future injury down the line too.
Check out some of the basics I like to use in the video below.
