Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilization
Dynamic Neuromuscular Rehabilitation is a revolutionary multidisciplinary rehab method with an emphasis on physical therapy and rehabilitation of patients suffering from back pain, neuromuscular, orthopedic and sports-related disorders.
Our approach is based on the functional model and the dynamic fusion of manual medicine into physical therapy and rehabilitation.
DNS is a new manual rehabilitative physical therapy and performance enhancement approach based upon developmental movement principles. We have these ideal motor patterns built into our neural pathways in our brain and we reach documented and researched milestones as we progress from a newborn up until we can grow up and mature both physically and neurophysiologically. Unfortunately we get older and develop bad “movement patterns” and repeat them over and over until tightness, pain, then full dysfunction finally occurs. The key to DNS is that the true correct movement patterns are programmed in each of us; it is up to the clinician to help the patient break out of the bad movement pattern and then fine tune the correct way the body is meant to move.
Through the Prague School of Rehabilitation which is based at Charles University Motol Hospital in the capital of the Czech Republic.
The Prague School has been famous for many decades as a leading teaching authority in the field of rehabilitation, frequently initiating new manual medicine concepts. Professors Vladimir Janda, Karel Lewit, Vaclav Vojta and most recently Pavel Kolar have each been world renowned clinical researchers and rehabilitation specialists.
This particular approach has rapidly gained recognition throughout the world having begun in Prague it has spread through Europe, Australia and the United States.
DNS is designed to evoke motor patterns in the brain in order to activate the body’s “stabilizing system” and thereby facilitating more effective balanced movement and endurance. This allows for improved body awareness, posture and respiration. DNS techniques stimulate the brain which controls all neuromuscular activity. Consistent with the objectives of chiropractic this method helps restore structural and postural alignment of the body’s neuromuscular skeletal system.
All physicians on staff at the clinic are competent in and enthusiastic about DNS and all are attending DNS postgraduate programs yearly. Each practitioner provides various other chiropractic techniques but utilizes DNS in appropriate cases or to supplement standard chiropractic procedures. The technique is particularly valuable in addressing chronic pain and problem cases. It is also most effective in enhancing sports performance and caring for infants with delayed developmental milestones. Through DNS there is an integration of the effectiveness of manipulation, mobilization, postural awareness, and exercises.
