DNS is a new overall rehabilitation strategy designed to better understand the neurophysiological principals of our core, its ability to stabilize the muscular system and its ability to upright the spine and move well. Our nervous system establishes programs that control human posture, movement and gait. This ‘motor control’ is largely established during the first critical years of life. Therefore, the “Prague School” emphasizes neurodevelopmental aspects of motor control in order to assess and restore dysfunction of the locomotor system and associated syndromes.
This rehab system is based upon the groundbreaking principles discovered by The “Prague School” of Rehabilitation and Manual Medicine neurologists/physiatrists, all of whom were giants in the 20th Century rehabilitation movement: large names such as Professors’ Vaclav Vojta, Karel Lewit, Vladimir Janda, and Frantisek Vele. Currently, professor Pavel Kolar, physiotherapist, has organized and evoloved the next generation of clinical protocols that are designed to restore and stabilize locomotor function. This new rehabilitation approach is called Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilization (DNS).
