The concepts of Dynamic Neuromuscular Stability was developed by Prof. Pavel Kolar, PaedDr., PHD from the Prague School of Rehabilitation in the Cech Republic. The basis of this type of therapy has been developed by the work of Dr. Vladamir Janda, Dr. Karel Lewit and Dr. Vaclav Vojta.
DNS is a unique manual rehabilitative approach to activate the patient’s Integrated Stabilizing System for the purpose of improving their level of function and performance while decreasing pain. DNS is not an technique but rather an overall strategy to better understand the neurophysiological principles of the locomotor system that are based in postural ontogenesis and developmental kinesiology.
What does this mean?
What this means is that all of us has a genetically encoded correct posture from when we developed as infants. There are genetically determined milestones that we reach and come into play depending on the level of CNS maturation/control and afferent stimuli. We can assist you in achieving optimal stability by analyzing your quality of current functional stability and finding a key link of dysfunction. This again, is based on comparing the patient’s stabilizing pattern with the stabilization development pattern of a healthy baby. From that point we begin to work on improving the integrated stabilizing system of the spine which include the spinal multifidi, deep neck flexors, diaphragm, abdominal wall and the pelvic floor.
By resetting your integrated stabilizing system of the spine we are able to get faster, and permanent results to pain associated with postural dysfunction.
