What is DNS?
Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilisation (DNS) is based on the principles of developmental kinesiology (ie, movement in the first year of life). This new manual rehabilitative approach is designed to optimise the control and efficiency of the body’s movement system.
How was DNS developed?
Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilisation was developed at the Prague School of Rehabilitation by Professor Pavel Kolar. Professor Kolar was influenced by his instructors Professors Vojta, Janda, and Lewit, who are each renowned in the world of rehabilitation science. Professor Kolar was trained as a physiotherapist and has utilised DNS methods with celebrities in the worlds of sports, politics and entertainment.
How does DNS work?
DNS is about understanding the development of human movement in the first year of life. A baby is not taught how to roll, sit up, crawl, stand, or walk. Babies perform these movements naturally on their own with ideal posture, ideal stabilisation, and ideal movement patterns. The good news is that your brain still has access to these “ideal” programs. By working through a series of progressive developmental positions and exercises that mirror the milestones of a baby, we train the brain to improve posture, stability, breathing, and movement, and thus optimising function and reducing pain.
When is DNS used?
DNS can be utilized to supplement standard chiropractic visits. The DNS method is particularly valuable in addressing chronic pain and complex neurological cases. It is also effective in enhancing sports performance and caring for children with delayed developmental milestones.
