Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilization Approach (DNS)
In layman’s terms, DNS is about understanding natural human movement development after birth. A child’s movement of crawling, rolling, standing, walking, crouching, and getting up when they are in early development is not taught. These are natural movements that are made from our Neuromuscular system.
Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilization® is a manual rehabilitative approach designed to optimize the control and efficiency of the movement system. It is based on neurodevelopmental and rehabilitative thoughts by Pavel Kolar, inspired by Vaclav Vojta, Karel Lewit, Vladimir Janda and Frantisek Vele.
DNS recognizes the power of the nervous system in our posture as well as how we move and has thus created a series of progressive developmental positions, mimicking milestones of a baby through childhood.
The approach brings the supporting joints and segments into a functionally aligned position. If one muscle is dysfunctional (weak), the entire stabilizing function is disturbed and the quality of the movement is compromised.
There is a posture associated with every movement that we perform. Not utilizing a proper movement can have an affect on pain and may cause poor performance in athletics.
Through repetition of these postures, we strengthen the neural connection thus “training the brain” how to improve movement, thus optimizing function.
We utilize these principles in clinic every day with our patients as well as treating our Vernon Vipers.
