Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilization...

  • Is coming to be known throughout the world as the most innovative and effective strategy for both sports performance enhancement and neuro-orthopedic rehabilitation.

  • Is a neuro-developmental approach to athletic performance and neuro-orthopedics that trains the brain and nervous system’s control of the musculoskeletal system.

  • Exercise techniques “re-boot” pre-programmed ideal motor patterns, replacing faulty patterns to create natural fluid movement guided by the central nervous system.

    DNS Clinical Course A Objectives:


    • Understand the basic principles of developmental kinesiology with an emphasis on development during the first year of life.

    • Describe the relationship between development during the first year of life and pathology of the locomotor system in adulthood.

    • Understand new terminology such as functional joint centration, punctum fixum, punctum mobile and the integrated stabilizing system of the spine.

    • Demonstrate a basic understanding of the principles of reflex locomotion:  locomotor patterns - stepping and support function and stimulation zones.

    • Evaluate and correct poor respiratory patterns.

    • Assess the integrated stabilizing system of the spine both visually and utilizing dynamic functional tests.

    • Perform the basic techniques for reflex locomotion, i.e. reflex turning 1 & 2, and reflex creeping:  initial positioning and anticipated movements, key zones and their vectors.

    • Integrate corrective exercises based on the DNS functional tests and developmental positions used in reflex locomotion. Clarify how DNS corrective exercises can integrate with other exercise strategies.

    • Provide basic clinical management explanation for clinicians to better integrate the DNS approach in their regular practice, including patient education.

    • To optimally prepare students for the next level of training (Course “B”).
