DNS Concept

Dynamic neuromuscular stabilization is a term standing behind frequently used abbreviation of DNS. Founded around 2001 by Prague Professor Pavel Kolář, this concept is based on the principles of developmental kinesiology. This means there are some generally valid aspects observed that naturally occur in healthy people when our musculoskeletal and central nervous systems are still developing, i.e. from our childhood up to approximately 2 years. All the planning and execution of the movement, and the quality of the movement, originates in the central nervous system, the brain. DNS has its own set of diagnostic tests, many of which are also therapeutic exercises, the goal of which is to detect the weakest link in the body and, if it is the cause of the problem, to therapeutically influence that in order to change muscle function around the joints and thereby change the whole movement habit at the brain level.

The DNS concept objective

is to create a neutral position of the joints in the body, because the so-called decentralized joints (when the joints are not in a neutral position), muscles and tendons around them are a source of pain and this neutral position must be learned, acquired and maintained during movement as well as at rest. The aim is therefore to create a balanced and coordinated muscle activity that ensures the economic movement of a given body part within a given exercise position.

Pre koho je vhodný

Since nowadays we have usually an unbalanced and unstable posture, this concept is highly successful with the following categories of patients:
  • with damaged intervertebral discs in any part of the spine
  • with myofascial pain syndrome
  • with "seated" lower back and painful cervical or thoracic spines,
  • for overloaded and overstrained limb joints (shoulders, elbows, ankles, knees, hip joints and wrists)
  • to activate the deep spine stabilization system
  • to relieve the joint arthrosis pain
  • with heel spurs
  • with faulty posture, scoliosis, hypermobility
  • those recovering from an accident or surgery.
The exercise has its sequence and its principles to be followed. The exercises are performed lying on the back, on the belly, side, on all fours and standing. The main goal is to teach the patient to feel their body, adjust muscle imbalances and ensure economisation of movement.
